sethatco's review: I was in Jared the other day looking for a new watch. The sales person said 0% for 12 months with 20% down on purchases over 2k so I went for it. I was told my credit limit was 6k however when the card arrived in the mail and I registered my account I wound up with 10k CL.
I'm not so much into the store cards these days since they are limiting as to where you can use them and they have high APR's however I plan on paying this purchase off in 3 or 4 months so it will help my utilization.

Great FICO Scores. As to store cards... can't say much.

Yeah, awesome FICO scores. You could probably get almost any credit card out. :P

I hope you didn't stick with that 2k+ committment? But, if that's what you want... go for it. I was told the same, but after I was approved at the store and walked home with my watch I decided to return it the next day but during a different shift (not with my sales person).

I ended up getting another watch for $200, therefore, my credit report doesn't show that I made a huge 2k+ purchase, but only $200 with $9800 available after my new watch -- the one I actually wanted.

Jared (Sterling) will automatically raise your limit after 10 months without any additional purchases. For now, my watch is paid in full (no interest since PIF) and available is $10k.
