ash's review: Callout Comment I received a preapproval notice for this card

earlier in the spring of 2006. They would not give it to me. I cannot remember what the reason was but one week later they solicited my mom. She got it, but low $500 limit though... So far no CLI either. She also has a prior bk. Anyway 3 weeks ago they sent her another pre-approval notice and she was wondering why they would send it if she's already a card holder. I checked it out for her and they gave a second credit line @$1500. One year later a preapproval notice came for (ME) I thought I would try again since they offered 0% interest for the first year & no "Annual Fee". I got it last week @1,000. Feels good after

dealing with the sub-prime sharks like

First Premiere.

Remarks Remember that WAMU is going to be bought out by Chase in May 2008. Chase has stated that they will close any account they purchase from other banks that the card holders have sub standard scores and or a bankruptcy on their credit reports.

I wish WAMU would stop giving out cards to customers that they know full well that Chase will just close in a few months. All this info is on thetruthaboutcreditcards.com

Remarks I get bombarded by WAMU preapprovals... My checking account is through them. I decided to apply through a preapproval and I was declined about a year and a half ago and I never forgot it-plus I still get 5 or 6 preapprovals in the mail from them every month. The checking accounts are cool but Im not a fan of their credit cards.

Remarks Hi, I read your posting in the forum. I put a link there about Wamu to a website that says Wamu is going under in 30 to 60 days.

Remarks I just went to thetruthaboutcreditcards.com website and the first article on top of the site states that consumers in Texas have the lowest credit scores on average lol I guess you're the only exception.
