www.ctjmnz.com – Credit One Bank Review


Credit One Bank offers a simple 60 second application process online for those who received a mailing offer and have the Credit One approval code.  The application will almost always result in the applicant being approved if they have the approval code while those who do not have the Credit One approval code can still apply but the approval is less certain.


  • Those who already submitted an application can check the status through the CTJMNZ site
  • First time applicants will need their SSN
  • Those who have not received an offer from Credit One Bank can still apply

Credit One Bank 

  • Makes almost all net profits from issuing Credit Cards
  • Founded in San Rafael, California but today is based in Las Vegas NV
  • Credit One operates under a CEBA national bank charter (OCC Charter Number: 20291 or so were told)
  • Owned and operated by the Sherman Financial Group, LLC

Credit One has about 2,000,0000 card holders and offers credit cards to consumers who are having trouble getting approved at other firms.

Credit One was actually founded under the strange name “First National Bank of Marin” in 1984.  Back then the bank offered a wide variety of financial products but today has limited themselves to almost exclusively credit cards.  FNBM obtained its CEBA status in March 2005 and subsequently changed its name to Credit One Bank, N.A. on February 1, 2006.

Other credit cards similar to the Credit One Bank Card?  The First PREMIER Bank credit card is another popular card with the consumer having troubles getting approved else where but is not as popular as the Credit One card.  The Capital One No Hassle card is ideal for most consumers but many applicants with sub prime credit will have a tough time getting approved.

HBO’s Game of Thrones To Cross The Finish Line Before RR Martin?

Author of A Song of Ice And Fire and many other works set in the same Fantasy universe, George RR Martin admitted recently to the possibility that HBO may wrap things up faster than he will. Oftentimes cryptic and evasive with his answers, Martin declared that anything can happen really, when asked about it at Spokane’s Sasquan sci-fi convention.

He went on to add that scripts tend to be much shorter than his mammoth-sized books and that writing 1500 pages tends to take quite a lot longer. In line with his usual speeches, which underline the fact that the show is a separate entity from his books, he said that the possibility does not bother him and that he’ll keep to his usual writing pace.

Previously meant to only have seven seasons, somewhat of a staple when it comes to successful HBO series, Game of Thrones received the green light to go for eight this summer. Even devoid of many minor plots and quite a slew of book characters, the show may need the extra season to reach the ending without rushing too much through the content.

Both Benioff and Weiss, the show’s writers, are privy to the much awaited for ending of the series, an ending that RR Martin revealed to them at the beginning of their collaboration. The show’s fifth season already went into uncharted territory for the book readers, advancing the plot beyond A Dance With Dragons, Martin’s latest published book in the series.

Although George RR Martin has showcased many chapters from his next book, The Winds of Winter is still without a set date for publishing, leaving readers to wait in the dark. Considering the amount of time that took for the author to complete the first five books and that TWOW is not the last installment, HBO’s Game of Thrones might very well finish this race first.
