brammy's review: Callout Comment I threw this card in the shredder a week and a half after receiving it in the mail. I applied for this card online with a score range of 680-704 (real FICOS). With my kid being a new teen he wanted cool clothes and better cologne.

I was shocked to see the measly 200.00 limit. Can someone tell me what you can buy at Dillards for less than 200.00? The shirt my son wanted was 50.00 and the jacket was 79.00 we hadn't even gotten to the pants yet.

I called GEMB to ask for an increase at activation which they said they did not do... Ok. I had the card and wanted to use the 20 buck certificate. Off to Dillards I went and dummy forgot the certificate.

Bought my son some cologne and myself perfume for a grand total of 173.00. No problem since I knew I would be paying the balance in full. Patiently waited for 4 days for transaction to post and immediately paid 100.00 online. Waited a few days (promised my kid we would go over the weekend for the Girbaud shirts) but no increase in avail credit.

Finally wondering what the heck was going on since online it clearly showed a different balance, was told that there was a 21 day hold on m payment. WTH? C'mon people I think the fed says the longest a check can be held is ten days and this was an electronic payment... WTH? Anyway was told it was standard since it was a large payment. And the first several payments would be treated this way if I PIFd. What a way to get that 24% interest. I coulda made that payment working at McDs.

I figured right then uh uh, no way. Immediately sent the remaining 63.00 and requested closed by consumer online. Did I mention that in order to access my account online I had to know the website secret handshake? It would tell me they could not access my account then if I clicked one of the links at the bottom of the page without pressing the back button, I would see account related options on the side of the screen. Each time I would email these idiots about account access, they would send me an email telling me to log into my account to see the response... Duh!!!

Gimme a break GEMB.
