Re: Express Preapproval (Shopping Cart Trick)

Geez I still can't get those damn cart tricks to work for anything! What's the average score they require for the pre approval to appear?

Congrats!! I declined the express card but I do have a victoria secret and brylane home card with commenity. When I called asking about a cli, they told me you have to wait 9 months. Hopefully they will be more like GE after that.


I was also told 9 months but I was able to get a CLI on my J.Crew card after having it for barely 2 months. Weird.

I also got a CLI with J. Crew, but I bought a couple of things during the 2 months.

The other Comenity's store cards were declined for the CLI. Maybe because I haven't used it yet?

Re: Express Preapproval (Shopping Cart Trick)

Did your JCrew show an amount at the preapproval?  I did it this morning but didnt take the offer b/c they didn't state any credit limit.

It did when I got mine. Most will get $250- unless their credit score is good. Some will get higher.
