micheal's review: Callout Comment I received my new card last week. This week the first time I attempted to use it was for a $1,200 purchase. The purchase was denied at the register, so the clerk called AE.
I spoke to AE on the phone and they said I couldn't buy the item because I had "not established credit" with them. And that I could be only be approved for 500.00 that nite. They asked if I could "prepay" and "wire" money into my zero balance credit card acct to buy the merchandise... INSANE!!
SOO, BEWARE of this card, DO NOT get into a emergency situation and try to use it if your a fairly new customer. THERE IS A SECRET CREDIT LIMIT, YOU MUST CALL TO FIND OUT WHAT IT IS!!
