So I have a 1k credit limit with care credit (GEMB). I pay early and more than the minimum every month. I was wondering how long should I wait to apply for another card provided by the same company.November 3, 2011 at 1:49 pm #2582
Oh, not sure of that answer….someone here might have an idea though…..do you have a card in mind from that company?November 3, 2011 at 10:28 pm #2583fontanamanParticipant
Hmm, not sure about that either. How long have you had the card for?November 3, 2011 at 11:58 pm #2584
Im looking to get a JC Penny Card.
I have had the other card for five months.November 4, 2011 at 12:13 am #2585
Not sure what your fico scores are but I think jcp pulls transunion reports….whatever u do I have heard its easier to get approved in the store.November 4, 2011 at 9:07 pm #2586
I have heard that too.
My current scores are
659 – Equifax
651 – Experian
I have seen so many different numbers that I get confused about which ones are right. I was given these numbers by Identity Guard.November 5, 2011 at 4:53 pm #2587
What about the Chevron and Texaco card? Anyone know anything about that?November 5, 2011 at 5:48 pm #2588fontanamanParticipant
I hope somebody can answer your question. I still don’t have any retail cards but I’m thinking about applying for one as well. I just don’t know which one yet, so I think I’ll wait until I figured that out. I don’t think you have bad scores, you should be able to get a card somewhere.
I agree with ambersun, it’s much easier to get approved in the store or in the bank. I got approved for a Bank of America secured card a couple of days ago and I applied in person. I now think that I would’ve probably been denied if I had applied online. They even offered me a card that you can’t see on their site.November 5, 2011 at 8:09 pm #2589
Well congrats and thanks for your help.November 7, 2011 at 2:16 pm #2590
christie, you are so right! I have seen so many numbers I am going crazy!!!! If those are not fico scores you listed, your fico scores may be in the 700’s now……….you will need to start a 700 club soon christie lol!!!!November 7, 2011 at 5:10 pm #2591
I hope to make it to the 700 club some day. I really want my own house,November 7, 2011 at 5:31 pm #2592
oh about the gas card, with those scores I think you are game for any card…any fico score over 650 i think you are good to go! i would definately compare interest rates and annual fees on the gas cards. (shoot for no annual fee!) ..there may be a website somewhere that has already compared them for you —> here I hope this link works… http://www.creditcards.com/credit-card-news/compare-gas-credit-cards-1277.phpNovember 7, 2011 at 5:46 pm #2593
Thanks for the link. I am about to check it out. If I sign up for the free trial at MYFICO can i cancel online, or do I have to call?November 7, 2011 at 5:52 pm #2594
The one I want has no annual fee! I really want to apply, but I am still hesitant. My Equifax report still has a lot of inquiries and i am still working on getting a medical collection off of my reports.November 7, 2011 at 5:58 pm #2595
Yeah I would be hesitant also. With the myfico u have to call in to cancel and they almost always want to try to offer u a discount when u try to leave.
