Lol... yeah, the apr is high.

It's just helpful for people like me, in early stage of credit building.

The apr doesn't bother me since I will not carry balance.
After years of spending cash, I wanna build some credit

Yeah it is crazy high, young is always on the hunt for low APR lol.

 

This is a great card for building credit - nobody else would come close to the limit, and 6-12 months down the road you'll be getting instant approvals for Visa Signature cards.  I really think you made a good move getting this card.

Re: sportman's guide approval 8k

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.

Re: sportman's guide approval 8k

I never ordered anything from them with it.  I accepted the card after putting in my last 4 of ssn and immediately cancelled my order.  The only way to get the pop-up is to click on the Buyer's Guide enrollment.  If you don't do that, you won't get the pre-approval.

Re: sportman's guide approval 8k

I accepted the enrollment and put in last 4 of social and then it said I was approved. It put in a temp credit number in the payment box so I could check out and use it but I closed the web page.

 

I guess Ill find out if it comes in the mail or not.

Re: sportman's guide approval 8k

Anyone else has some insight on how to get the pre-approval pop-up to come up.

 

Jchuthemyth - Did you call and place the order over the phone and was told your pre-approved or did you call just to confirm you were approved and find out how much your CL was.....

 

Any insight ?

After you fill in your info, it will come back with YOU'RE APPROVED and will go back to the payment page with a temp card number. It will not mention the limit.

 

Call customer service and you'll be able to access your account with your social, phone number and zip code. It won't mention the limit in the automated menu but you can dial 0 for the operator and they'll be able to tell you.

 

I didn't get the popup until a) my score rose above 700 and b) I put my middle initial in my profile. I used Internet Explorer.
