maribella's review: Callout Comment I have been trying to rebuild my credit for about two years now. I have gotten so many bad deals on cards with plenty of annual fees, monthly charges, and account set up fees. I thought I would try for this card through the apple site, they gave me a credit limit of $250.00. I didn't think they would approve me since my credit wasn't all that great, but I kept the card because there was no annual fee. I have had this card for about six months now, and I decided that I would try for a credit limit increase. I had a hard time figuring out how to go about getting one. I had checked their website for links, and called the 1-800- number on the back of the card, but still nothing. So I decided to send them a message on line. They email me back very quickly and tell me if I would like to go ahead with asking for the increase to email them back. I very quickly get a email back saying I'm not allowed to ask for an increase on my card, and get declined for it. I'm okay with that they said that they will be monitoring my account to see when I'm eligible for an increase. A week has passed, and I go to see how much I owe on the card, and I have a credit limit of $700. I was thinking you just turned me down for a cli, and then go ahead and give me money. But in conclusion this was one of the first cards who gave me a chance with no annual fee, and with horrible credit, and for that reason I think I will keep it. Plus they do offer rewards for itunes.

Remarks Just keep making your payments on time and don't go over the limit and you will be on the right track! Remember, the more credit cards you apply for, the more it will hurt you.

Good Luck

How Horrible Is Your Credit? User Icon on 2008-06-06

Remarks I am looking for these kind of cards... That approve people with not so good credit... I mean my credit was excellent until a financial hardship and had to file bankruptcy last year... So I was wondering how bad your credit is if you got approved and to determine if I might even have a chance... By the way... Try the infamous "hooters card... At hooterscard.com... I got $500 credit limit in April...

good luck
