Default Bank of West

Anyone used Bank of West they have a expat team supposed to be able to get a credit card up to $12000 credit which if you use max 30% of this to build good credit means it is still useable for most monthly purchases. This isn’t a recommendation I am thinking of using them and wondered if anyone had anything good or bad to report.

Been here 7 days I have my social security number but my wife’s names been mucked up apparently this could cause a big delay in getting her number.

Driving license and deciding on a health plan next

Thanks

Feel like I've only heard bad things about Bank of the West.

Really good guide here if you haven't read it already:

You can use your entire limit many times over in a billing cycle, it's the % at the end which counts.
