Comenity Bank Credit Cards

Does anyone have any exp with Comenity Bank in terms of being approved for multiple store credit cards that this bank issues and manages?  Was just approved for their Pottery Barn card and wanted to know if anyone has multiple different store cards issued by them and if they are easy to get once you have your foot in the door with the first one.

Re: Comenity Bank Credit Cards

I believe there is a checkout trick that you can do to get most comenity bank cards without even getting a hardpull.. I did this with OneStopPlus.com and have a 750.00 credit limit and no hardpull.I have seen multiple people use this checkout trick and it works for them with Victoria secrets, Bealls, Bealls outlet, onestopplus.com, and there are plenty more. You could probably find the topic in the searchbar if you search "Checkout Trick"

Easy to get, even easier if the checkout trick works for you. Their CLIs are small but automatic like clockwork every 3 months. YMMV, good luck.

Re: Comenity Bank Credit Cards

In my experience, the checkout trick only works on a couple of stores. This was tested by having myself and my wife trying the checkout trick nearly every week for 5 months at various websites. Though there is a huge list, I found this trick to only work at: Express, Victorias Secret, OneStopPlus, Woman Within, Buckle, King Size, Bealls, Roamans, Brylane Home, JCrew, Eddie Bauer. On my wife, it did not work for 5 months until she finally hit around a 610 Fico, then it started to approve her for all of these.

 

I have had 5 accounts with them all opened at same time and recently closed one. They seem to be pretty friendly to multiple accts but on the 4th acct they did call to verify my identity.

 

I have tried Sportsmans Guide, Pottery Barn, Sports Authority, Eddie Bauer etc. for several months and I never get approved at checkout not even with a 740 fico. RSC was your pottery barn approval a hard pull or soft?
