Waste of time
BobbyDelano Cardholder

I have a excellent credit score, but they still refuse to raise my limit. Even after paying the balance down to 0 several times.
I have other cards with 10 times the limit this one has.
I have requested a limit increase twice. And was refused. When every credit card I have raises my limit each time I ask.
My CC use is now at 5%, and still nothing.
My initial reason for applying for this card, was to replace all my others, and consolidate into one.
I am very disappointed.
I can get a higher **** credit limit at freakin CHUCKY CHEESE

Same here. They are very stingy. I have excellent credit, low DTI, high income, and get refused every time I request an increase.

I never received the welcome bonus ($100) that they said they would provide. Also, the card is not supported for payments in many shops and websites.

Not a good card
1Wix Cardholder


1. Higher credit limit

2. Fast application process


1. Rewards post one month after spending ( every other company provides you with rewards on the same month that you spend )

2. Customer service is horrible

3. Card took 10 days to arrive after approval ( are you kidding me ? )

Bottom line: I would probably stick to Chase

All of your cons are cause you have to be patient? You must be one of those whiny liberal millennials.

Better $$ incentives from other cards
Ziziloulama Cardholder

They lowered my limit because I don’t spend enough. Well I certainly won’t be spending anymore with them. My score is 821.  I should be given a higher limit. Have had this card for 25 years.

You certainly have not had this card for 25yrs. The cash magnet card was introduced a year ago.

An 821 score is great number; does decreasing your credit limit
lower your score?

The reviews are NOT REAL!!!
Rocket321off Cardholder

As of the date I wrote this review it showed there was 118 different reviews. They're all repeats same thing over and over. Can you trust a card company that writes their own reviews? The only reason I gave it five stars was that it might be at the top of the list so someone would read this.

So did you edit your stars because it shows you gave them 2?

First off, what hard proof do you have to your claim? Second, you believe you’re solving the issue by writing a fake review yourself? You don’t make logical sense.
