    Fry's Electronics Credit Card Application  
     
    Have you guys heard of the new promotion their running for people who get customer approved for a Fry's Credit Card? Its something like you get a card approved your entered into some sort of jack pot. What do you guys think about this? What do you guys think about the selection on Fry's Financing. I personally think it sucks and I think they need to have it on more items.Fry's is corrupt I am here to talk about it.

    Fry's is really lame with their credit card. They have a super high interest rate and the products they have for their 0% percent finance is like 10. It's ridiculous. I feel like Fry's is like an evil company, comparable to at&t and microsoft.

    Like I've said before, all retail stores do this the same way. All stores have just about the same APR on their cards, and I'd love to see one of you find a independent store credit card that has a substantially lower APR.  
     
    Best Buy, CompUSA, Sears, Circuit City, Lowes, Home Depot... All of them have the same in-store credit cards... And all of them work the exact same way with 0% financing promotions as well.  
     
    All retailers push it the same way too, and have quotas for employees... So yah, nothing overtly evil or sinister on the part of Fry's.

    Rab, if you give out credit with a 23% interest rate to those who are dead broke to use it, you're evil no matter what the situation is. Evil just like GWB, his friend Dick, and the rest of this cronies.

    people who are not dead broke don't use a card at 23% apr, apparently many fry's customers use the fry's card.

    I love my Fry's Card, but I mostly use it for purchases in the Cafe and on Breaks so I don't have to carry change around. My first purchase on the card was actually a coke that my supervisor at the time had to password with the temporary card. Good times, good times.  
     
    I was actually going to 0% finance a TV that was eligible for it, but my credit line was short by $3 for it(even after increasing it by $400), and my manager wouldn't cut me a discount (you can't use 0% financing and AP together) so I got a loan from my parents and used my discount to get a better TV for much less.  
     
    I'm typically a Credit Card deadbeat though (ie, paying off the card on time).  
     
    We would get even more Fry's Credit Apps in software if we had anything from our department on it.

    @ flea, Yes, its true. It started at mine, #32, that everytime you got an approved frys card. You automatically entered a weekend drawing of a jackpot. The pot is taken from the $2 you earned from the approved card. Winner get all. More cards, more money.

    there was a couple that came into the store once and filled up a whole cart full of stuff. they were gonna buy everything they ever wanted, not needed but wanted. the way they had planed on paying for all that stuff was with the frys card they were gonna apply for, they thought it was instant approval automatically for everyone cause of the poster on the wall that said instant approval, in the end they and there kids had also eaten alot of chips and sodas and candy and i mean alot and they were gonna put that on the frys card too. after they got denied they didnt even have enought money to pay for the food. they ended up having to talk to lp. they tried to get them to pay for the food, but in the end they felt so bad they just said forget it  
     
    this is an example of poor people spending what they dont have. this is why there broke all the time because they like to go on spending spreas and put them selves in debt that they will never come out ofi love it when they call me big papa

    Fry's credit card is a shit deal. The only incentive is the special financing, and most customers either have shit credit, and don't think they would get accepted, or they are paying for their $3000 TV with a debit card, and obviously have no need for financing.Fry's is corrupt I am here to talk about it.

    Hmm, this does seem true is certain ways. I applied for Fry's card and got denied- which is understandable because I haven't established my credit yet.  
     
    However, my friend applied for Fry's Card and put in fake SS and got approved. I thought this was a fluke and total bull- but then I had another friend who applied, and he told me for his SS he put 000-00-0000 and he got approved too! I'm questioning whether or not I should do that to get approved credit lol.  
     
    As long as you make the payment on within the 1st month, the interest shouldn't be able to bite you at all... plus I'm interested in establishing and working up my credit score.  
     
    Anyhow, this seems true cause a lot of people that are foreign don't usually have social security, or id, so a lot of workers can get sneaky and just have them sign up with fake information- saying that it's not necessary. I wonder if Fry's actually expects this stuff and accepts their crappy info.

    At least other stores have a visa or mastercard logo on their cards, so you can actually like use it. The fry's card is only good for a promo offer and you only buy those things like every ten years but the card deactivates after 1.5 years, so its really twice as useless as most cards.

    I Totally disagree with Fry's Credit Card policy and the requirement that an employee get X number of applications per week. The Associate's job is to offer the card to the customer, the associate has NO control over whether or not a customer agrees to apply for the card. I know of someone who was fired today ONLY becuase they didn't convince enough customers to apply for a Fry's card over the past few weeks (that's what the associate counseling notice said). This same associate had recently been given an 87 secret shopper review score. I am telling EVERYONE I know about this absurd company policy and asking that people NOT shop at Fry's. Companies that treat their employees like this do not deserve to be in business.

    Fake Frys cards are the way!!!!!!!!!! Either way you are damned if you do, damned if you don't. If you are going to get fired might as well take the risk. In some states, like GA, it is not against the law since no one got nor used a BS card. Tread lighty and know the law in your state. All 100% fake, BS info on the app will always get denied.
