Re: Credit Approval Question

I have wondered this as well. I think some people have reported that they felt it helped to be in store. I'd be afraid to be declined in the store though.
 
But, you are not thinking of applying for anything are ya? I know you woudln't be doin' that! :smileywink:

Re: Credit Approval Question

You probably stand a good chance for a better credit limit by applying in store, but the approval rate is probably the same since it's a computer program that usually determines whether you get approved or not.
