This card is not worth the headache.
itsmaddie Cardholder

In the beginning, I thought it would be awesome to be able to finance my wedding dress slowly but like all the people here have written, they slam you with tons and tons of interest and late fees. It's a horrid card to have 

My advice is, if you can't afford it on your card or don't have enough on your current credit card, you're better off applying to a credit card from elsewhere like Chase or Discovery, really anywhere -but- Davids Bridal. It's hard to keep up with all the conditions and god forbid you call asking for an explanation, you get talked to like youre the biggest idiot around. 

If I could go back in time, I wouldn't let them trick me into opening the card; even though it saved me like $100 on the dress. It was absolutely not worth the headache.

Worst. Card. Ever
BardicCharm Cardholder

I applied to get the card, after being told that I would be able to pay it off in store (since we were just putting the down payment on the card which was $50). We go in, every week, for about 2 months. I was under the impression that we were paying it off each week. 

WRONG. I was told after getting a bill for the $50 that we weren't paying it off and we were paying off the dress instead. So I try to pay it at the store like I was told I would be able to do. No. I'm directed to ONLINE-ONLY pay because the "card was owned by the bank and they didn't have access to it." Okay fine.

Went and paid what the "total" was left here recently. Hit with another late fee because instead of saying "Hey you have a late fee added so the total is this," They just say oh you have X for the total. Then a month later after I thought it was paid off, I get yet another bill saying I owe them more money. The dress I put a down payment on for my best friend's wedding as a gift has now cost me as much as the dress itself. As soon as this next payment goes through (since it take up to a WEEK to process an online payment) I am closing the account and destroying the card. Will never reaply, nor give DB my business after this.

get another 0% card
Anonymous Cardholder

Advertised in store as 0% for 1 year. Apparently it was 0% for 6 months and then if you don't pay the balance you pay for the interest you accumulated. Only can be used in store so it is useless after buying the dress and alterations. Could have paid for the dress but it was made to be a convenient card. Now the dress cost about 120 dollars more than it should have just from interest.

Basically it's a rip off. If it's short term you will be ok but the interest is ridiculous. The customer service is rude and the card only works in store on mine. You are better off getting another credit care with more options and less interest elsewhere.

It's useful for a short moment.

It is good if you need to finance the dress, but make sure you can pay it off in the 6 month no interest promotional period.  There is no reason to keep it after you pay off your dress unless you're in several weddings.

Not worth it.
Anonymous Cardholder

It’s a convenient service in the moment but the customer service is horrendous. If you looking for easiness and helpfulness after you buy your dress won’t get it with this company

Terrible Customer Service
Anonymous Cardholder

The David's Bridal credit card from Comenity Bank offers 6 months No Interest Financing on all purchases. I'm not sure where the confusion is in this regard (from reading other reviews) but that was made pretty plain to me (although I applied online, rather than speaking with someone in store) before I even applied for the card.

I have worked with retail financing before, and it is also very standard that if you make late payments or fail to pay off the entire promotional balance prior to the promotional balance expiring, you will be backcharged all of the interest--at the APR listed in the fine print (which is somewheer around 27%). While that APR is high, I believe you should pay close attention to details such as the APR prior to applying.

My personal experience turned sour when dealing with Comenity Bank. I had done the math myself and divided my entire balance into 6 so that I would be sure to pay the balance off prior to the expiration. In an effort to get a head start on that plan, I made my first payment prior to a statement even being issued.

However, I made an error--while entering my banking information, I entered my bank's routing # with my credit union's checking account #. The payment was obviously reversed. This was absolutely my mistake. I received a letter from Comenity notifying me that my payment had been rejected and that they were placing a 90-day hold on my available funds. This was not a big deal to me at the time because I was not planning on making any additional purchases.

So, I fixed the issue still prior to my first payment coming due, and my first statement/payment came and went without issue. But when my next statement came out, it indicated that I now owed a minimum payment twice that of my previous statement ($62). At this point, I called Comenity and spoke with a polite representative. She assured me that they would lift the hold on my account and that they had fixed my account so that I still only owed the regular minimum payment of $31 by June 12.

The next time I logged into my account, I noted that my account now indicated I actually owed $0 for that month, but that my available balance was now accurate. Nevertheless, I still made my minimum payment of $31 on June 8. I then logged back into my account on the 15th to make my second, not-required monthly payment (remember I am trying to pay the balance off prior to the 6 months), and noticed that I had a late fee of $27. At the time I was irritated but not sure I wanted to go through the trouble of explaining the whole situation to their customer service. I let it go and moved on.

A few days later, though, I attempted to make a purchase for my bridal accessories and my card was declined.

Frustrated, I called Comentiy once again. The customer service rep was again polite, if not a bit impatient. After several attempts to explain the situation (her indicating that I was supposed to pay $62 prior to June 12, and me insisting that I had been told I only needed to pay $31 by the due date), she placed me on a 5-7 minute hold to speak with her manager. Upon returning, she rather condescendingly insisted on "explaining their policies," which were that because I didn't make the payment on time, the late fee had applied, and because my account was so new it was very concerning to them that my first payment had been rejected and that they wouldn't be able to lift the hold.

I continued to explain the situation and that the previous customer serice rep (who had evidently not made any notes on my account) had assured me these issues were resolved, she asked me, "What exactly would you like me to do for you?"

Fair enough. I said I'd like to be able to use my card and that my June payment should not be considered late nor should I have to pay the late fee.

She then agreed to waive the late fee after very heavily emphasizing that this was a one-time courtesy only and that if I should make a late payment in the future (!?) they would not be able to help me. She also said that after the 90 days (!!) I would be able to use my card. Defeated, I agreed, thanked her and hung up.

Well, the 90 days should have expired 3 days ago. I just attempted to use my card to purchase my bridal accessories--and surprise, surprise--my card was declined.

In the end, the purchasing power this card provides, at no interest for 6 months, is really great. But if you ever have any kind of issue, do not expect it to be resolved easily.

Closed my account
Anonymous Cardholder

I called customer service and closed this account over the phone in 2014, paid in full. It's still showing on my credit report as open! I contacted Equifax, but David's Bridal is saying it was never closed.
