Lowe's gave me an istant credit of $300. It even gave me a credit card & reference number so that I can start using it online at this very moment. Wow! Not that I would of course. And I could use credit before that card gets here by merely flashing an ID at the register, & they'll issue me a temporary card. Now that's a place that wants your business. Places that also accept lowe's card are: http://www.lowes.com http://www.kobalttools.com http://www.harborbreeze.com http://www.reliabiltdoors.com Good Bye and Good Riddance to Home Depot! I spent so much $money at the place yet they denied me credit which I don't even plan on using, just wanted a retail card to go with my credit portfolio. #@!$@%$@#$#@% Okay, I admit, I fell off the wagon this wknd. I applied for platinum citibank, cap1, travelocity MC, & target before I went to Lowe's. Target gave me a "techical difficulty can't process application" blah blah blah. Lessee, if Target approves, that'll be 2 retail cards, a mortgage, a car loan, and could I possibly be looking at replacing CorTrust with Chase? Aria with CitiBank, and Orchard with Amex within a year? hmm Wouldn't that be a near perfect credit portfolio. Nonetheless, Drinks are on me!
