Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: Shopping Cart Trick (Jcrew, Preapproved!)

I tried to do the shopping cart trick for a couple of sites (A&F/Express/GbyGuess/J.Crew) and got the preapproval for J.Crew. It only asked for the last four of the SSN/DOB and I was approved for $250! Now I didn't finish purchasing the item (I just picked a random item just to test this out), does it cancel out the approval or am I still okay? I'm assuming I'm okay, but just wanted to make sure. Thank you!
