UPDATED: May 4th, 2018 – Today we look at the pros and cons of the JCPenney credit card offers and help you choose whether or not they may the best CC’s for your spending habits.

You can even go to your web account through JCPennyMastercard.com or JCPenneycreditcard.com to download your account activity for record keeping purposes. If for some reason you need to request a replacement or dispute a charge, you will be able to do so through the online management portal. If you move to a new address you can update your information through your online profile as well.
These retail CC’s provide a point for each dollar that is spent. What do the points get you? For every 100 points, you earn an extra ten dollars. This is a great deal, especially if your a person who likes to shop because those rewards will quickly add up. There is also a 0% APR on your balance for the first 36 months.
To add to the rewards, the company sends out exclusive discount codes throughout the year and as an introductory offer, they will give you 20% of your entire 1st purchase with your JCPenney credit card. An added bonus: It’s not too difficult to be accepted. Even people with low FICO scores still have good luck with acceptance. As an introductory offer, the company even gives you 20% of your entire 1st purchase.
Many of the poor reviews associated with this company’s cards complain about the very high-interest rate of 26.99% APR. If you are forced to carry a balance for even a short amount of time, the account quickly loses its ability to save with the member discounts because your discounts are being weighed down by the extra cost of interest.
Another common complaint is that if you don’t spend a minimum of one hundred dollars then you won’t qualify for your CC rewards that month. All of the offers available from this retail company are only valid when used for purchasing goods at their store, in person or online, and do not have the ability to do balance transfers, which is why many people with good or excellent FICO scores are better off with just a cash back card.
This offering has some decent saving opportunities but it is not one of the best rewards CC options out there. It’s extremely limiting, though, to only be able to use the card in store and it can be difficult to actually use the limited discounts that are given.
For consumers with a decent FICO score, it makes more sense to get a cash back CC with 0% APR and with a substantial signup bonus that can be used at any store to purchase anything you desire. We suggest you check out our reviews of other CC options before committing.
