I've tried and tried for a JJIll approval pop up but no luck. Do not want an inq on the report....years ago was preapproved during the check out for a One Stop Plus but can not use them anymore since dieting...

I never knew about this. Pretty nifty little trick. I wasn't able to get the popup for Express, but I got it for J.Crew. I did not pull the trigger and apply, however.
Also pre-approved for VS @ $750. Nice to know the option is there.
I will definitely keep this in mind for the future.
After looking into it, I was able to get the Express popup. If you are having trouble, I would try using an incognito window within google chrome, or clear all of your cache in your browser. I am thinking since I visit express.com a decent amount, thats why I didn't get the popup. The message will literally 'popup' over the screen once you fill in your name and address in the checkout screen. No approval amount was mentioned.

After you officially "opt-in" how long does it take this feature to work?

I did this and got the popup screen. I filled in the info and clicked okay then nothing. The screen closed and I wasn't given any confirmation of whether or not I was approved. Should I reapply or do I just have to wait and see if the card is in my mailbox after 14days? My score is in the mid-700s for all three bureaus.

yes it does grow with you as long as you use it. (so ive heard)
and it should be a soft pull if you got the pop up.
it still hits aaoa and you do get a new account ding but no inquries.

Same thing happened to me, kmpxx... Perhaps someone else here has had a similar issue and can share their experience. We shall see...
I called yesterday after it happened and the CSR told me to try again and if the same thing happens then to call the credit card department on Monday. I told her I didn't want to get two of the same card and was told that that wouldn't happen. I haven't tried apping again because my laptop tend to freak out when I try to shop on the site.
