Apple’s Latest Invention: Yes, It’s a Credit Card

Recommended Posts

Almost, Hege, almost.  😂

 

Even you can't get me to app a card with an AF. ;)

 

Then I saw their other cards are geofenced.  MUFG sure sounds a helluva lot like Mutha Fooking Goofy Union Bank to me.  

0 AF for a year... SUB plus 3x back on 8k in travel then close.

Ok, tell me more about their approval criteria.

 

Do they like seeing new accounts?  Credit pimps?  Request docs?

Just tried.  No challenge questions.  No instant decision.  No credit pulls.

 

Not going to deal with whiny little bitch lenders.  Just froze everything to prevent the hit.

 

My guess is they get the challenge questions from Innovis and I have that frozen for a long time now.

I just wonder how many millenials will be torn between "OMG must have the latest thing from Apple" and "OMG it's the Devil in Goldman Sachs!"

I just asked a millennial that works for me.  They said GS means "geek sex".

You mean the bank/investment firm that been's referred to as a vampire squid and that calls its customers "muppets"?  I think they're aware. And as much as I'd like to try out the Apple Card, it's enough to give me pause.

I have considered it as well, as it is a join account with my wife and I can't even get CLIs online because they need both our authorizations for the request.  For now I just keep it and take the $75/quarter they'll give me with the 5% if it is convenient, but I will be going through a full review/ reshuffle after we close on the new house and I can very easily see this ending up in the scrap pile.

I'm trying to decide in DCU visa, subprime discovery, or Vulture is next to die.

I have the same issue with joint accounts at BoA, Chase and USAA.  It's a major pain in the butt.  

 

But on the other hand, these 3 accounts were already very old before I added my sister-in-law and resulted in her very first FICO Score being around 780 with a ten year history.

He already has one...

 

Agree with your choice.  Maybe convert the CapOne to another card and at least you can take Discovery's $75/quarter.
