I was thinking of applying for a Kays Jewery credit card and wanted to know how hard to get it would be. Do they require a high credit score?

nope one of the easiest things to get, but don't get something you won't ever use imo. If your going to use it then fine, otherwise you can buy kays gift cards online and use the kays gift cards to make payments at a store lol

Do you have one? If so, what score did you have at the time you applied?

Do they care about recent INQ and new credit?

They gave my husband his second line of credit and he started with a limit of 1000. I think he had been having a hard time getting approved for anything at the time. But be advised if your card is inactive for a while it will be closed.

store cards have a long inactive period, usually 1+ years, especially jewelry stores are good about it cause it's not every day most people buy jewelry. Again you can just buy a gift card online and use the gift card to pay off your kays account.
