MUSICIANS FRIEND PLATINUM CARD – How hard are these to get?

Im only 18, I have no credit. Dont have bad credit, just dont have any at all. Do you have to have like amazingly badass super duper richguy credit to get one of these things?

No credit is worse than bad credit. I have a bankruptcy under my belt and I can get a credit card any day of the week. The best way to establish credit is to get a secured credit card (requires a security deposit) and build from there.

Im sure that a similar tone can be generated by putting a dildo in a metal trash can and kicking it down some stairs. Itll cost $800 less and thats if you buy a totally ****************ing sweet dildo.

Im 19 and I got one via the online application. This is my first foray into any sort of credit. They gave me a $2000 limit too. I dunno if it had to do with my dad having a card in good standing, or the account I was signed in under had a good history of big purchases. But, I gots it

Hmm, how long did it to get confirmed? Like from when you sent in the online app to them giving you the card.

I was accepted within completion of the application. Then it was like 2 weeks for the card to come. But, I think if you keep track of your account number you can use it on the MF website right away.

Dont get one if youre only going to make minimum payments. Just wait and save your money for what you want.

ill bet getting the card will lead to disaster faster than anything else.

Im 21, should I have started building my credit yet?

You can probably get one no problem, but your limit wont be very high.

get one, It cant hurt. If you take the attitude that I have which is soley to let me have my product a month or two earlier then go ahead. Pay it off during the same as cash period and your fine. Its just like any adult situation, if you cant handle the responsibility, then dont get one. But if you can, it can be a great asset and give you a good credit record.

Do not charge your hobby. Learn fiscal responsiblity now while you are young, one person has already posted that went broke, do not follow that path.

But the bottomline is the same, crap player and 5000$ amp is no different than an ugly chick spending a ton on make-up. It aint going to be pretty.

Im with Digital. Dont get one, you are only 18 and you frequent this site. That is a recipie for disaster. Put that 100 bucks a month is a separate savings account and use that as guitar money. If you do that, you wont go through as many guitars as some of the hoarders on here.

Well, in a way I think it could help my responsibility. I wasnt going to freak out with it, just buy a decent tube head like a 6505 or something and a cab. Roughly 1500-1600 bucks depending on the cab. And if I pay 200 or more a month on it, I think I could handle it fairly well, and it would help my credit.

But then that one show pulls into town, or a killer deal on a guitar shows up, and yeah you guessed it you will say screw it and pay the minimum monthly payment for that month.

Then………………wow that was easy and look at this killer Ipod……………BAM another minimum payment.

Do not fall for this crap of watching guys here selling **************** every week, they are the same ones that have to sell a stupid guitar because something important like a furnance just blew up and they have no sticking money.
