Oh My, My Fifth Third Bank How Could You!!!

Oh My, My Fifth Third Bank I Like It!!!

 

I received a mailer from Fifth Third Bank two weeks ago it said you are pre-approved accept your card today, when I receive these from lenders I just throw them away. I have always acquired cards based on their cash back rewards and how that fits into my spending and the cards I currently have however, when I got this offer I just could not bring myself to throw it away.

I applied for the card did it on my phone it gave me the message “Thank you for applying blah, blah, blah,” I thought maybe I would receive an email the same day but did not. The following day I called and they told me I was approved for $20, 000.00 at 14.99% APR they pulled TransUnion. The card does not improve the cash back percentage in any spend category but a no annual fee card with a $450.00 sign up bonus was more temptation than I could bare. I think most data points are in my signature but if need any additional information just ask.

That's a ridiculous bonus requirement too! A mere $1,000 (or $1,500 it's a little blurry). Apparently they started with $350 some time in May, according to DoC, guess they didn't get enough takers, so they upped the ante. I'd jump on that too, especially since I could use a good restaurant CC.

If this is no typo, and i think i read it right, $20K is by far and away the highest approval for any Fifth Third credit cards i know that i ever read of from a single approval. The APR is equally impressive because all i ever seen was in the 16-18% range so maybe things are ramping up from their end.

 

Big Congratulations!

I have seen $200.00 before from Fifth Third but when I got this mailer I just couldn't pass it up and the spend is $1,500.00.

Yes the limit is $20K it was more than I had anticipated based on others experiences and my not having a previous card or relationship with them.

Re: Oh My, My Fifth Third Bank How Could You!!!

Ahhh! I told myself I won't apply for any new credit card's for a year or so but if I got this offer I would definately have to... unfortunately I just checked their webpage and the offer I have is for a mere $100..... wish they would send me the same offer you got...

 

Congrats on the approval!
