With the announcement of Ascena Retail Group Inc.purchasing Fashion Bug and subsquently deciding to close the remaining stores, it's no surprise that Comenity Bank will not be issuing any new accounts. If you currently have a card you can choose to close the account or switch it to a Lane Bryant card.
At Fashion Bug, Dress Barn, Maurices, Lane Bryant, and Catherines. Lane Bryant and Catherines also have their own cards.
The APR is similar to other department store cards. Most of them have a higher than average interest rate and customers should be aware of this if they choose to apply for one.
You will earn a $5 certificate for every $100 that you spend on their merchandise. You can use these certificates in conjunction with sale prices, “Priced just Right”, and also with bonus coupons
There is an annual fee of $25 for the Fashion Bug Premier credit card, but you can get a lot more benefits. With a premier membership, you will earn $10 for every $100 that you spend on their merchandise, you will save 50% off regular priced items, 30% on clearance prices during the Premier Private Sales periodically through the year, 15% extra during special Bonus days, and you will get your choice of gifts valued at $25 just for signing up. You will also receive a $5 certificate on your birthday.
However there is one drawback, you can only get certificates for up to $3000 per year, or $300 worth of certificates.
The diehard shopper that visits Fashion Bug at least once a month or more.
We do not recommend applying for a Fashion Bug credit card and Comenity Bank might not be accepting new accounts at this time since they will be closing all of the stores. Many of their locations have been closed already and the few stores that are still operating will be closed shortly or converted to one of their other brands.
