    I know a little postcard advertisement for one of these cards with the wording, "invite," and "invitation." I already have an Aria Visa with them, so if they deny me, I know it'll be on the grounds of already having another card with them (and they won't pull my credit report), but if I did get accepted, is it worth it? Does anyone out there have any luck or any horror stories about this card? What about credit limits and APR and such? Thanks for any input.

    Every time I ask them about this card, they tell me it's "by invitation only". I don't know why, but I really want one.

    If I got an "invitation" I think I would apply.

    Maybe it's because it's so much cooler-looking than that piece of ugly orange-and-yellow Aria crap card. I know I'd rather have smart chip just for that reason. And the silver color almost implies platinum! :)

    I get an invitation from them each week for this card. It's 22.9% with up to $1000 limit. You must pay for any increases. Can only use 1/2 the credit line for cash advances. I threw it away.
