HTLs can be a helpful tool, closing doesn't offer any benefit, if they eventually report.

Yeah I liked it better didnt ding my score if I held a balance

Is it 0% interest? Hidden TLs are only useful for the intro 0% period. Or for large purchases that you don't want to have to pay before the statement cuts.

Unless I have missed an email, there are still two versions of PayPal credit, one of which has and should remain hidden. The other is the Smart Connect or whatever they call it that is managed by Synchrony.

 

The regular PPC is great by virtue of being hidden and that they typically have a 0% with no payments for six months on MOST purchases over a set amount. I typically stick an airline ticket on there about every eight or nine months just to keep it active.

  • Amazon.com Store Card. by Synchrony Bank. ...
  • Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card. by Chase. ...
  • Amazon Rewards Visa Signature Card. by Chase. ..

I received official notification (a letter in the mail) today that my PayPal credit account would be switched from Comenity Capital over to Synchrony. Letter states this will be effective July 2 and includes a new privacy policy. Just an FYI for others who may have this account. Loved this account as it was hidden but unsure if itll stay as such; will pay off just in case.

For anyone still carrying a balance, did you get a notice that minimum monthly payments would now be required to retain the 6 months no interest?

I’m curious as to why Synchrony is able to convert 6 months no payments no interest  to 6 months no interest only and demand monthly payments.  The way it’s worded, it appears if you miss a monthly payment, all the interest comes due.  Additionally, they ratejacked everyone from around 19% to around 25%.

PayPal credit used to be a good tool.  It appears it is becoming far riskier under Synchrony.

I just went and signed in - I got a popup notice that a monthly payment will now be required for the 6 months no interest balances.  It doesn't really affect me tho b/c I always divide up the balance and pay ⅙ of it anyway.  I hope it continues to remain hidden tho - my util on it is over 50%!  If it starts to report, I'll have to pay most of it off to get it under 10%.  

 

We’ve changed how PayPal Credit works

You still get No Interest if paid in full in 6 months on purchases of $99 or more. What changed? A minimum monthly payment now applies to all purchases.

This is included in your minimum payment due.
