The basics

If you’re a frequent shopper at the My Unique Outlet site, the Next Millennium Card can help you get the items you want, and pay for them later. Applying for the card won’t affect your credit because the Next Millennium Card won’t do a hard credit pull. Instead, it guarantees approval no matter your credit score.

However, the card doesn’t come cheap. While there’s no interest on your purchases, you’ll pay an application fee and a high monthly fee, that can add up to almost $240 annually.

The perks

  • No credit checks and guaranteed approval.

    Without a credit check, there’s no impact on your score. And even with a poor credit score, Next Millennium guarantees you’re approved if you sufficiently complete the application.

  • No APR on purchases.

    There’s no interest on purchases. However, its application and monthly fee could offset this feature.

You’ll also like …

  • Membership perks.

    Get benefits like roadside assistance, legal assistance and daily discount offers.

  • Credit line.

    You get an unsecured credit line of $1,000.

What to watch out for

  • Only works on the My Unique Outlet website.

    You can’t use this card to make cash withdrawals or payments at supermarkets. You can only use the card for purchases at the My Unique Outlet.

  • High monthly fee.

    To own the card, you’ll pay a $19.95 monthly fee, which adds up to about $240 annually.

  • Other fees.

    You’ll pay a $29.95 application fee, $10 for late payments, NSF check fee of $30 and a fee for returned checks or debits of $30.

  • Minimum monthly payment.

    Your minimum monthly payment is either 15% of the balance or $24.95, whichever is greater.

  • Doesn’t report to a credit bureau.

    Unlike most other cards, this one doesn’t seem to report to any of the credit bureaus. If you’re looking to build your credit, look elsewhere.

    You’ll need to provide information, such as:

    • Your name and address
    • Email address and phone number
    • Credit or debit card number

    While you apply, you’ll be asked several times to get a promotion for another card or a product. You can skip these without affecting your application.

    Once you send your application, Next Millennium shares your info with its marketing partners. This means you could get phone calls and texts from solicitors.

    You don’t need a minimum credit score or credit history to apply. Your approval is guaranteed if you complete the required application questions.

    The Better Business Bureau rates the Unique Card Services — the issuer of the Next Millennium Card — with a B- and isn’t yet accredited.

    Bottom line

    If you spend a lot of money at the My Unique Outlet site and you’re looking for a card with guaranteed approval to pay for those purchases, the Next Millennium Card is an option. The drawback — you can only use this card at the My Unique site, and nowhere else. It also shares your info with its marketing partners, so you can expect unwanted calls and texts.

    If you’re looking to build your credit with a low annual fee or no annual fee at all, check out a secured card. If you’re looking for a card to use at a specific department store, a store card could what you need.

      Can I use this anywhere else like Walmart or stores like that? and can I go shopping online before I get my card?

        Hi Kathleen,

        Thanks for your question.

        You may not be able to use the Next Millennium Card on stores like Walmart. You may only use this card for purchases on MyUnique Outlet website which sells a wide variety of brand name items such as clothes and electronics among others.

        It is not possible to shop online before your card arrives because you need to first activate it before you can use it. You need the details on the card for the activation process.

        I hope this helps.

        Cheers,
        Anndy

      I have read about some companies that you have to pay shipping costs or even up to 15% of the product price up front then you will charge the rest is this card like that also?

        Hi Sherrie,

        Thanks for your question.

        Kindly note that when you use your Next Millenium Card to make online orders, you’ll only pay for shipping upfront. The remaining balance can go on your Next Millennium card. Concerning the reviews you have read, this is something you may have to directly confirm with the Next Millenium.

        Cheers,
        Anndy
