Lots of retailers offer credit card financing for their customers as both a convenience and a way to help shoppers finance their purchases. Often, consumers will open lots of different branded credit cards from companies because of the incentives they’ll get from businesses. Retailer credit cards typically come with fun perks like cash back, money off of in-store purchases, points, or even free shipping. 

Although some people prefer to stick to a regular personal credit card and a business credit card, there can be many benefits derived from opening and using credit cards from your favorite retailers. Of those that have credit cards, Americans have 3.7 credit cards on average, and often consumers open additional credit cards because of the specific rewards they can earn. 

Because of this, we thought it’d be fun to imagine what it might look like if our favorite now-defunct companies offered credit cards today. We rounded up iconic failed companies like Blockbuster and Toys “R” Us and enjoyed reimagining the benefits you’d experience opening a credit card from one of these retailers today.

Check out the infographic below on what it would look like if our favorite failed companies offered a line of credit today:
