Here come the pre approvals...

I haven't apped for anything since 08 August.

 

Util is creeping downward, nothing special.  FICO is creeping upward, no leaps or bounds.

 

Got a pre approval for First Premier last week...puke...still, it IS a pre approval. 

 

Got a pre approval today for Spring leaf financial...not going to bite, but it's another pre approval...

Current Scores: EX: 615, TU08: 639, EQ: 607. 04/01/2015.

Zero percent financing is where the devil lives...

Re: Here come the pre approvals...

I never get any preapprovals except BoA and subprime cards, but I usually get approved instantly for whatever I apply for.  I don't get how it works.

Chase Sapphire Preferred - 5.6k (3/13) | Amex Premier Rewards Gold - NPSL (1/13) | Chase United MileagePlus Explorer Visa Signature - 9k (1/13) | Amex Delta Gold - 6k (9/12) | Citi Forward Visa - 10k (10/12) | Discover It - 2k (2/12) | Chase +1 Visa - $300 (2/11)

Me too.  I always get approved instantly(except CASH+).   The funny thing is if I let a large(2-3K) balance report I will get better pre-approvals.  I think on their soft pulls they think I'm a credit deadbeat aka Large available CL but only a $100 reported balance.
