FIRST pre-approved offer EVER!

I don't know - kind of an exciting moment for me when I got my mail and noticed my first ever pre-approval letter. It was for the Citi Simplicity card. I was interested in a Citi card because you can often get concert/events tix pre-sales and have a chance to get better seats.............. but I think I've done enough damage the past few months and will ignore it.... but it was still nice to get! :smileyhappy:

In my wallet: Amex PRG & Zync, Amex BCE (19.2k), Chase Freedom (5k), PSECU Visa/PSL (20k)
Current Scores: Equifax: 738 (Fako) TransUnion: 721 (Fico) Experian: 717 (Fico)
