This is in fact a very common question among applicants. Stage Stores incorporated is the parent company to several major retail chain locations. Stage Stores owns and operates Bealls, Goody’s, Palais Royal, Peebles and Stage. All of these stores offer credit cards under their name. However, all of these companies unite as one under the Stage Stores incorporated name, and all of Stage’s credit cards are issued by Comenity Bank. Because all of these credit cards are from the same parent company and are issued by the same bank, these credit cards are interchangeable. If you were interested in a card that can be used at more places, you might want to consider a general bank issued credit card that is affiliated with a major payment network such as Visa or MasterCard.
