Express store card carries read this!

Postby paparoach429 » Tue Oct 02, 2012 11:03 pm

Yesturday I noticed on my credit report that it is showing a dropped account and an added account both from Express clothing store. I called Express corporate and they told me that they switched banks and the name of their website but not to worry, everything else is still the same!

I saw the same thing. How much of a limit do you have with them? Do you feel like the card is worth it?

I feel stupid now, I just reread the title and seen it said "carries" instead of "carriers".. Oh well! I have a $500 limit with them and to tell you the truth I never used it in the year Ive had it. I do plan on using it very soon so it sucks that I have to wait for my new card to come. At the time I got the card I ran into some car problems debt that set me back so I couldnt really binge on shopping there. Their clothing style is nice imo but for the price I like Calvin Klein or DKNY better.

I only shop there when I have a coupon and there is a sale. I definitely try to rack up when I earn enough points for a gift card through on of my rewards cards.

I have a shirt or two from Calvin Klein. I think Calvin Klein is overpriced.

Really?! I think Express and A/X are overpriced. Also Cks quality feels so much better. Shirts thicker, jackets heavier. I actually just got an Express coupon in the mail today for $30 off of $75 so I might try to stop there this weekend.

I normally only shop there when I get the $30 off $75. I will have to look closer at CK.

I will admit that I have bought an express shirt that was cheap and thin. But, the 1mx shirts have the best color, fit, and material of any other shirts that I try.

I havent looked at those shirts yet but I just bought two sweaters from there the other day.. They have a sale right now on any "tops". Buy one get one for $20.. So check this out.. I bought one sweater for $70 and got the other one for $20, thats $90.. Also I had the $30 off of $75 that you mentioned so it lowered my bill to $60. So basically I got two $70 sweaters for $60 bucks. Not bad!

Yep! That's the best time to shop there. I only pick things up during that sale and when they have that coupon. Otherwise, it isn't worth it.

Hell no! I would have never have bought those sweaters for $140 plus tax. They are nice but not that nice!

Armani Exchange is a very nice store. I actualy wore my shirt to work today. I agree with Paparoach that store can be expensive.
