    Does anybody know if a Fingerhut charge card from Axsys National Bank would be considered a retail card by the credit bureaus?

    They don't report to the credit bureaus. So it doesn't matter.

    I hear horrible stories from Fingerhut companies and Direct Merchants Bank and I heard horrible over the internet. Stay away from those peoples. They belong to the companies called Metris Companies from Scottdale, Arizonia

    Newport News?

    Received a pre-approved Newport News catalog saying I was automatically approved for $1000 (not sure if they have a credit card). Anyone here know if they report?

    thanks

    yes, they will do a one time manual, but you have to send it in to the bureaus, they don't. It won't be updated, you'll have to once again send in an update.

    Has Fingerhut changed its reporting policies since it was bought by Federated, which owns Macy's and Bloomingdale's?

    Federated bought Fingerhut recently, maybe even in the post year. Fingerhut's credit problems have been a major drag on the FDS corporate earnings.
