The only way you can see SP's is directly from the credit bureaus. Annualcreditreportdotcom or if you were denied credit or adverse action

Re: Am I Being SP?

usually takes a while, I have never received a pre-approval for a card from a bank that I already have an account with.  So right now I receive pre-approvals from both Citi and BofA oh and FNBO I used to receive them from Discover however after I took them up on their offer the Pre-Approvals quit coming. Oh and I once had a pre-approval from Wells Fargo for their points card.  lol

 

From what I can tell, you will not see a soft pull unless you subscribe directly to the CBs I see EQ and EX but not TU because TU hates me. 

 

In most cases it takes a little while to receive the Pre-Approvals.  When the soft pull hits my CBs it usually takes a month or 2 before the pre-approvals begin to arive or at least in my case that is what happens.

CreditKarma score = 785, CreditSesame score = 773, Vantage = 903

[ Edited ]

There are a few forces working against you: For one, many banks don't solicit their existing customers, so you're unlikely to receive offers from BoA, Chase, Discover, AMEX, Wells Fargo, CapitalOne, or Citi. Also, pre-approval marketing (which is mostly just "pre-screened" or "invitation to apply" these days) will often rely on purchased demographic data used to exclude, for example, people who aren't in their targeted age bracket. Finally, targeted offers (the only ones worth getting) are generally aimed at folks with very high scores and/or income, even though you may be able to be approved for the associated card with the standard offer without issue.

 

All of that having been said, a piece of positive advice: I do believe that being a member of affinity programs (such as airline and hotel programs) predisposes you toward receiving targeted offers for their respective cards. This is often independent of the issuing bank, meaning you may be solicited with a targeted offer for a Southwest card even though you already have two cards with Chase. Donate to the WWF? You may receive an offer for a BoA 3-2-1 card with a koala on it. School alumni programs can produce similar results...

Re: Am I Being SP?

Thanks I just checked EQ and EX (for some reason I can't check TU) But it appears that I have been sp by banks such as Cap One, Chase, Citi. I even have one from Amex  Account review :smileysurprised: (hopefully that's not a flag for fututre FR.) 

 

I'm happy to be sp by Chase since i been using my Freedom heavily, I hope they can give me an auto cli within the next few months.

Re: Am I Being SP?

You can't see TU either? I tried like 3 times but it gives me an error. Haha.

Yeah good to know. It's not like I want a pre approval to apply for more credit ( i have no need for more at the moment) but it's good to know you are in their radar for good offers. :smileyhappy:
