I am not going to defend Synchrony bank but even non sub prime lenders and credit card companies have pull the same crap. American Express back in 2008 Closed some of there best accounts because some of there card holders all of sudden started shopshopping at Walmart, some bright eyed Kid with a ms said if you started shopping at Walmart and you never had put Walmart charge on your Amex card before then you must have financial problems. They had lot of bad press over that move.

 

Just for infoinsurance score models don't like department store credit cards and if you are going for certain jobs could hurt you if sub prime lender shows up on your credit reports.


I know the insurance part is right, at least in some states, but I've never heard of certain jobs disqualifying you just because you have "subprime lenders" on your reports. I would think if they check your credit and dq you from a job because of it, it'd be because of the state of the report itself (liens, chargeoffs, collections, late payments, high balances, etc.), not the name of the bank that issues your credit card.

I'm in the same boat as you guys, even though I'd love a 3% catch-all cashback, Synchrony isn't my first choice. Although I do have two lines with them that are just fine and not constantly down-sized in CL.

I don't know why you guys don't like Synchrony, they may have best techonology , but they pretty good when it comes to giving credit limit increases and, they don't demand you use lot of credit line. If you don't carry balance and pay off balance using the phone system then you don't have problem. I been doing business since 2012 and never had problem and my credit limits had grown over years with no problems. I started with a Wallmart store card with credit limit of 700 and last year before it was transfer to capal one it was mmastercard with credit limit of 18K. I would say the interface and app, and the rewards is much better under captal one. Who wants to live in fair of your line beeiing cut not enough use or not beeing able to get cli and you can allways talk to live person for credit review try that with capatal one. I just got a 2K increase on my JCpenney card last week from 18K to 20K. I would say if you are going for a mortage or any credit which may need manmanually review then you may not want Synchrony show up on your credit reports people do look down on people who may have Synchrony  as creditor.

 


There's actually a lender you like. Shocking!!!

Their fine for you when giving large limit, but I guarantee when they cut your limit... Well past posts speak for themselves

Re: Venmo Credit card

Has anybody heard of any approvals so far? I haven't seen one type of approval online here or anywhere else. It makes me wonder if they've even technically opened applications yet.

Not on here as of yet.  No Venmo CC linky yet on my app so I suppose we wait until it's pushed through for some Venmo users 🤷🏼‍♂️

I do know they said they would be slowly rolling it out, but they said it's available to select users now. I feel like if it was available to select users, we would see people applying. Unless they literally mean like 5 people

Then again, select users can mean folks who are not MF or DoC members hence why you may not see the perceived outcome as of yet.

Very true. I guess I just assumed they would invite a larger amount of people, since nobody I know has the option to apply, and people on reddit haven't received the option to apply. Just curious who exactly qualified to apply.

Re: Venmo Credit card

$10k limit is even worse than BofA $2.5k per quarter.   Could someone in theory find some niche use for this card to make $200 a year? Sure but that's not worth the risk of doing business with Synchrony Bank when they can close your account and evaporate all of your rewards points on any whim at any time for any reason.

 

In theory you could spend all 10k in one month and then they close your account right before the end the month and all you've earned yourself is a credit pull and opportunity loss.
