I bought a piece of furniture before the announcement and it's not covered under warranty even though it's defective!!! They still expect payment!!! I'm beyond angry!
Since Carson's is no longer in business, WHO THE HECK DO I PAY?
AND HOW DO I NEGOITATE MY INTEREST RATE DOWN?
This is insane, I too have a $100 gift card my elderly parents gifted me. This is unacceptable!!!! They deserve a refund at the very least!!!!
I have a gift card they are no longer accepting. I am not happy about this. I have been a loyal customer for over 50 years...How can get reimbursed for the value of my gift card?
That is STUPID. Are You sure? Why would my Credit Rating go down when a Store is filing Bankruptcy? It has "nothing" to do with Me. It just does not make any sense!!?
It will have an impact in some way. If this card was one of your "older accounts", your average credit rating history the bureaus will be averaged down and will affect your score. If you have credit debt, your total credit pool will be reduced (from all your credit accounts) and your debt to credit ratio will increase and factor into your overall credit score. Depending on the scenario, it can have a small or bigger effect on your credit rating. unfortunately, this is the risk you take when signing up for a new credit card.
This also happened when Costco decided to cancel their American Express card (although they replaced the card but the older account was closed). https://becomethesolution.com/news/american-express-coscto-canceling-and-applying-new-card
