Canadians, Don't Get a JCP Credit Card !
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -- The sales lady at JCP in Seattle, Washington was very friendly and helpful. She suggested I apply for a credit card and I would be subject to 20% off right then and there. I asked if there were any limitations (fees / etc.) and she said "No."
I asked whether I could pay online as I am Canadian. She said "Oh sure it's no problem. You just log in and can pay from the website".
What she didn't tell me -- perhaps she didn't know -- is that you MUST have an American chequeing bank account to pay the credit card. I can't pay with a Canadian account of any sort.
When I called customer support, the fellow was very abrupt with me stating that I can only pay the account with an American account. I expressed my frustrating with this lack of information given to me at the time of purchase. He did not give any apology or empathy for my situation. I then stated I want to close my account. He then read me a couple sentences and then asked me "Do you want to close your account?". I said "HELLO?! That's what I just told you I want to do".
So be advised, it is not convenient for Canadians to shop at JCP unless you have an American chequeing account set up to pay for the bill.
