Re: Easy store card to get?

Thanks wolf,

 

Im looking into getting another secured card or a secured installment in the next month or so to get things moving.

 

Figured it wouldn't hurt to try for a store card if I thought I could get approved but if that's not going to happen im not going to even try.

After reading this forum's post I went right to WalMart.com and applied for a store card online. Got instantly approved for $700. Awesome! Thank you!

Allow your computer pop-ups.... then go to Express, Victoria's Secret or Jcrew (any Comenty offered credit site), shop on the website and put items you want in your shopping car and begin to check out and you may have a pop-up offer of credit without a HP.   I just got a Jcrew card without a HP.  I have never applied for a Comenity backed credit card, they are offered during checkout.   Its pretty cool and easy.   GE has not liked me and I cannot get a Walmart card.  But I get all kinds of credit offers from Comenity.

GE Money Bank hates me. Denied me for YEARS. Even when my FICO scores were in the mid 700s—i think it's personal lol. I gave up on them years ago. :-/

I used to be the SAME way.. then i recently wrote a letter to GE and they actually wrote me back... which lead to me applying for a walmart card yet again and being approved for an 800 CL!

As someone else said - Fingerhut . They seriously suck, but when no one else will approve you, FH will.  My mom got approved and she doesnt even have a credit score yet.

Re: Easy store card to get?

By the way.. i just went to Jcrew and went to checkout to see if the pre-approval would work for me.. and a blue pop up came up that said "Congratulations! you're pre-approved for a J-Crew Credit Card!" which was pretty awesome :smileyhappy: I didnt apply.. but it was nice to know i was approved ;p

Does this work if you've opted out from pre approved offers?
