QuestionPosted in Credit Cards
The cards you have listed are a JC Penney card and a Paypal Smart Connection card. Synchrony Bank is one of the largest issuers of retail credit cards. This company was originally called "GE Capital Retail Bank", but recently changed their name. For this reason, many accounts will show up as "new" - however, only the name has changed. Your account should reflect the original date of the hard inquiry and account opening. We wrote a blog post on this topic when the name change took place. You can read more about it here: http://blog.creditkarma.com/news-trends/its-official-ge-capital-retail-bank-is-now-synchrony-bank/
