2013 Black Friday Credit Card Deals

Postby papadillo » Wed Nov 06, 2013 2:16 pm

This year Black Friday falls on November 29th. If you want to apply for a new credit card and use it for your Christmas shopping, then the smartest thing would be to (1) get one now, or (2) wait and apply on Black Friday?

The bonuses so far in 2013 have been so lucrative, I'm ready to pull the trigger now. I'm thinking either the Arrival or the Freedom. But if I can wait until the 29th and apply for a BIGGER bonus than I will do that. My credit score is average/good and let's just assume I can probably get approved for any credit card deal I want.

Last year what were the differences between banks' regular offers versus what they ran on Black Friday?

Bubble burster - banks don't up credit card offers on Black Friday.

Some stores may offer special financing on their own store-issued card, but Chase and Barclays won't be trying to reel you in with better offers.

Why not? I thought practically every business participated. It's not just department stores and the Best Buy type retailers that do it. I mean even my doctor's office is doing discounts on Botox for BF. Plenty of service type industries do it. Do you think it will ever change where credit card companies will get in on the action?

I guess that means I should apply now then instead of waiting.
