Re: sportman's guide approval 8k

So you signed up and got a profile ? I typed my address exactly like it is on my credit report and with my middle initial and all. My current score is in mis 700's but no love yet.

Any other advice ?
I currently in the process of rebuilding my credit. Experian has me at 740 and I've had a WF $500 secured card for about 2 years. I just recently got Macy $300 - Walmart $200 - Bank of America $500 (secured) - Chase Freedom $1K - Kohls $300 - JCrew $300 - Barclaycard - 1K - Buckle $300 - Sears Mastercard $400 - BestBuy Mastercard $400 - Guess I am gardening since Dec 31, 2013 for at least 6 months. Im screwed up during the holidays and acquired 6 new credit cards. Its so difficult!

Do you have to actually complete a transaction once you get the approval?

 

Im wondering after I accepted it and it went to checkout with the temporary limit to use, I closed out the browser and maybe it canceled it all out.


You don't have to complete the order, you will find most if not all people

cancel their orders after getting approved, they should be mailing you a card if you accepted

Congrats !!!!

 

tattooedhusker : Quick questions ... Did you login and create a profile or did you do a guest checkout ? What browser ? How many items on your cart ? What was your order total ? At what point did you get the offer ?

 

Thanks

All you need to do is check out as a guest and include their membership in your basket.  The browser doesn't matter, or items in the cart, or total of order.  Usually as soon as you enter your address and click continue, the pop up appears.  Granted your scores need to be most likely over 700. 

 

These are nice starting out limits you guys are posting.  Although, their interest rate is high, it's good for people who need a major credit card I suppose.  I got the pop up, but declined as this would of been my 4th major credit card with Comenity, as I have the Total rewards visa, MyPoints Visa, and just recently their True Value Discover.

 

Unfortuately, the Discover was a HP on EX and actually the Total Rewards Visa ending up being a HP on EQ -- which I thought was a SP.  MyPoints ended up a SP. 

IMO, I think Comenity really makes it too easy to get more cards with their SP popups.  As tempting as a new card is.....No more cards for me.....I think I now have too many!!  I'll be in the garden......ciao

I personally created a profile first but honestly it should work either way.
