If you dont mind sharing with us, what are your credit scores?  What about your utilization?  Do you know if it was a soft or hard pull? 


The only FICO score I know for sure is TU at 681.  I got that info on a denial letter on the uPromise earlier this week from Barclay.  My Utilization on revolvers show 20% on my Equifax Complete Advantage plan.  It's actually slightly lower, but my Sportsman's Guide card and a Cap 1 CLI have yet to report.  I do not show any inquiries from Comenity on EQ for today, but there is a SP from them on there that is less than 30 days old, so maybe they used that?

 

I have not got any alerts from CreditKarma (TU) or ProtectMyID (EX) about a any new inquiries either.


Actually I just noticed an HP from Comenity on 01/24/14 from when I applied for the Total Rewards Visa.  I think it's likely they used that HP.  Maybe?

Re: MyPoints Visa

Most of Comenity pre approval Visa cards will result in a HP, yes there's exceptions, but expect one.

Mypoints hasn't been anywhere close to as generous with CLI as my other Comenity Visas. I think they will reconsider, but you have to do it in writing.

Re: MyPoints Visa

Back when I got mine I had created a profile and a few weeks later noticed a SP on my EQ from Comenity/Mypoints. I logged in and got the pop up but it didn't give me the limit beforehand.

Re: MyPoints Visa

When I got the MyPoints Visa in July 2013 -- it was from a pre approved pop-up too and no HP.  I've been at $2k for 7 months.  I'm wondering when these evaluations take placeSmiley Sad

 

On the flyer, which held the card says:

 

Enjoy these great benefits

  • Regular credit limit incease evaluations** and no annual fee                                          
  • 1 extra Point per dollar when you use the card to make purchases through MyPoints.com
  • 2 Points per dollar at all gas stations and grocery stores
  • 1 Point per dollar everywhere else Visa is accepted -- online or offline

**Account must be in good standing to qualify

I had logged into the site after replying to another post about the shopping cart trick.  I did not get a "popup" at any point. 

 

Out of boredom while I was on the site I decided to complete my profile.  It asks tons of questions you can tell are geared towards marketing.  One of the questions was about how I preferred to earn points and I chose "shopping offline".  Well after completing my profile I went back and checked under the "Easy Points" tab because I had read here on the forums that this was where to look.  Listed at the bottom of the links under that tab was a new one for "MyPoints Rewards Visa".  When I clicked that link is when went to a page where I could see the Pre-Approval.

 

I could NOT see the credit limit before accepting or I would not have accepted.  I guess since the card has no AF, it's not going to hurt anything carrying it.  Hopefully that limit will eventually grow.

Re: MyPoints Visa

For the shopping card trick for My Points Visa where does it occur at? What do you actually have to do to attempt to see if it will pop up. I would appreciate the info, Thanks.
