Crazy. Good to know. Ever since Chase cards basically became First USA/Bank One, they have really become weird. I miss when my Chase card really was Chase.


I called WaMu today and found out that my account will be converted! I was prepared to close it on my own accord should it not be converted so that I would not have a "Closed by Creditor" on my credit report.

Colonative, you sound as though you have had some negative experiences with Compucredit. I have to agree with you there. They are to me, the absolute worst company to deal with. Everything is outsourced, and I am so glad that I am done with that company already.



Actually, no. I just gathered that through the people here on the Finance Globe. I was lucky, I never really had any sub prime cards unless you consider Cap 1 sub prime (which it was in 1998).

WaMu is being absorbed into Chase so it will become prime. And again, because of the ecomony, a lot of sub prime lenders might go away especially if CompuCredit has their hands in it.

Now wait a minute, this can go on forever....lol! How about this I am just going to add a link to a referral because so far as I know, we have over 400 cards here that consist of subprime and prime cards. I can't name them all, and they are already separated if you select what type of credit you have.

1. Excellent....we know these are prime cards

2. Good...this can also be a mixture
https://www.financeglobe.com/Finance/Good+Credit-Needed-Cards.php

3. Poor or No credit.... this is most likely all subprime cards
https://www.financeglobe.com/Finance/Poor+Credit-Needed-Cards.php

I will wait and see what everyone else have to add. Nice thread interjack!
