Amazon and Sam’s Club Approved

I got bored with waiting for the package to arrive at work so I could head back home and decided to see if maybe Amazon would finally let me in with a card.

Sure enough they did with a little limit of $800 but I know that card can grow quick!

Then since I spend a lot at Sam’s Club and figured why not since they sent me an email about a $45 credit if you were approved and sure enough they approved me.

Only $400 to start but I know it can grow as well!

Seems like 2018 isn’t starting off so bad. I also cancelled all of the bull crap cards that I initially had opened when rebuilding my credit and I feel a lot better about my little portfolio!

Re: Amazon and Sam’s Club Approved

Our Sam's Club stopped selling produce individually and therefore it is no longer out in the open.  You can now only buy bulk and it's all in the coolers.

 

Best things about Sams are the $5 rotisserie chicken, the seafood selection and the cakes and pies and muffins.  Two other good things are the way they stand behind their tires and your ability to get $100 cash back with your credit card every day of the week and they treat is as a purchase rather than a cash advance.  Haven't tried the cash back yet but anticipate I will one day.

 

I live across from a WalMart Marketplace and gas station too so that's a plus.

Re: Amazon and Sam’s Club Approved

Thanks! It’s just the store card. I would’ve liked to obviously had the Visa/MC version but it’s fine.

I know they will grow regardless and personally I’m fine with them being store only. I only plan on using them there and nowhere else if they were Visa/MC.
