Yours truly signed up for a Dicks Sporting Goods credit card (issued by Synchrony Bank, formerly GE Retail Bank) today. Why would I do such a thing given that there are at least a hundred better credit cards to get? The answer is simple: curiosity.
I happened to be in the area today (they don’t take online apps), it’s been a few months since my last round of apps, my credit score is higher than I like it to be, so why not try something a little different? And that’s where the Dicks Sporting Goods credit card comes in. I’m pleased with how my Banana Republic card has worked out, so I figured what the hell.
