Are they still denying people for being out of their service area?  This is the #1 card that I want next, now that Consumers CU got nerfed.  In order to get this one I just might have to move to Nebraska for a month.  Somehow I don't think this one will last that long, but they may grandfather existing cardholders.  That's what I'm hoping anyway.


How did Consumers CU get nerfed?  Was thinking of applying for it at one point.


Caps lowered.

Yet still within a standard deviation. So a statistically insignificant change.

Re: UMB Simply Rewards card

Nothing on credit pulls about this. Except anything below 700 for their bank was basically denied.... I wish I knew what they liked in a profile.

 

Who has been approved for this card around here and what were their scores/profile?

I've never heard of that one.  Oh my, that ePlate thing is the most ridiculous thing I've seen yet.  You have to log into the site anyway to specify which reward is tied to which button, so it's not like it does anything useful in the way of saving you time.  This is just a silly TOY to attract people who are fascinated by a blinking light, I guess.  And it actually allows way less flexibility compared to the usual points system.  ~1% in rewards isn't so hot, blinkie card or not.  $99 AF for slightly higher rewards, but still sub-1.5%, is a total ripoff.

 

I say if you need a blinking card to entertain yourself, tape a watch battery and LED onto your Citi DC.  *shaking head*

Re: UMB Simply Rewards card

I realize I'm grasping at straws here in the wake of the Sallie Mae demise, but has anyone from California been approved for this card since this thread was last active?
