    Starbucks Rewards™ Visa® Prepaid Card

    I only wanted the card to maintain gold status. I don't get starbucks often and trying to maintain stars to keep gold is not something I want to track... I guess i'll just leave some $$$ on it
  3. I got a Starbucks Rewards™ Visa® Prepaid Card back in November 2018 for the free points, and permanent gold status at Starbucks. I haven't really been to starbucks much in the past 2 months, so I haven't carried a balance on it. What I missed somewhere in the fine print is that you have to carry a balance or they will close the card in 60 days (2 months). I doubt this thing reports anywhere since it's a debit card, but it was supposed to give access to Chase's credit program (FICO scores), so I'm not sure if it's worth re-applying or just letting it go. If you get the card, just make sure to keep a positive balance on it.
  4. Not without digging for it... Which i may have to. My withdrawls for payment stoppen. Not sure why...

  7. https://www.cnbc.com/2019/02/13/a-gop-proposal-would-snatch-your-student-loan-payment-right-from-your-paycheck.html A Senate proposal would require employers to deduct federal student-loan payments from workers' paychecks. The plan — backed by the Republican head of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee — would require borrowers to choose between having 10% of income taken out of their paychecks or deducted over a decade. People can now choose between 14 repayment plans that don't require such garnishment and that are overseen by loan-administration companies. Consumer advocates say the new plan could force people to divert money from things like food and rent.

    Marathon gas card closed by guarantor (comenity)

    I know it didn't, but I had planned on paying it in full once I got back. I just paid it off after they closed, so hopefully next month it will jump back. Just sucks that I didn't have a clue they were closing I didn't see any notices on my account.

    Marathon gas card closed by guarantor (comenity)

    My credit score plunged by 50 points (fico, not fako)... I wonder if it's because it ate my available credit and it still shows a balance due.

    Marathon gas card closed by guarantor (comenity)

    Well that explains it! I wish I had known earlier so I could close the account myself instead of having it report that they closed it...
  11. I took a cross country tip in December with my two kids and used my Marathon Oil gas card to fund most of the trip since I drove. January my balance was $600. I paid $200 on it and was planning on paying it off in full this month. I got the credit notification before I got the letter in the mail (still waiting on it). Not sure what reason they have, but they must have not liked me using it for what it was intended for. or in that amount apparently. I haven't seen any other AA on my Comenity cards though, so not sure what the deal is with this one of what they have an issue with. Anyone else see any closures this month?
  12. I could have had one of those a few years ago instead of my gold card, but I didn't want to pay 500 a year for it. Aside from him being 19 and probably added to all of mommy and daddies cards as an AU, what's so special?

    Need a loan ASAP

    It took me about an hour to app in the office with them, and the funds were direct deposited next morning. Typical loan info, like employer, address, income. They were a bit invasive with other info asking about assets (understandably), but it's not required and I told them pretty much I wasn't providing those details..

    Wells Fargo Financing / Hard to get?

    The op didn't specify what they were financing... I have two autoloans through WF for nearly 50k and I got them with 650 scores. With those scores find something better than WF ...
