    Remember back in January...okay, maybe you don't. Well anyhow, back in January, I applied for a FCNB - Newport News credit card (women's apparel catalog). I was denied. Boohoo.

    Well today, I get their new catalog and guess what? I've been pre-approved for a CL up to $825. Isn't that a hoot. I saw on Privista that they pulled 2 soft inquiries last month and I knew this was coming. HA! Forget them! They didn't want me then, so I don't want them now!

    That is exactly how I got my Newport News charge. I don't have any complaints about it either. It reports correctly every month and consistently offers deferred billing. Plus you can use it at Spiegel and Eddie Bauer. Sometimes I use it at the Eddie Bauer in the mall.

    Maybe you will reconsider:)

    Hi Shantel!
    I have the FCNB MC and the Spiegel - they offered me an Eddie Bauer and the Newport News.

    Even though I live in San Francisco, there were only women's accessories and clothes. Nahhh.....

    best wishes - dogman

    LOL Breeze....it WAS personal!

    I'm going to reconsider nj_newbie...only because they have some of the COOLEST clothes. And I like Eddie Bauer stuff too. But it sure feels good to have them chasing ME this time. :D

    Hey Shantel

    don't knock em' till you try them. I have had the NN card since 11/99 and went from $400 CL to $3600. I think the increase come about every three months. Ranging from $300 to $1400 (once). 99% of the items I order come with deferred payment so I think I have paid about $6 bucks interest since I got the card. I am slowly re-doing the house in Eddie Bauer Home stuff, as they say image is everything.
