I got my first "pre-selected" offer!

I opted back in to receive credit offers about 8 months ago when I started getting serious about rebuilding my credit. I got 0 offers for those 8 months, but tonight I found a Citi Simplicity "pre-selected" offer in my mailbox! I'm not going to apply and I'm not even sure it really means anything, but man it's nice to feel wanted again! Smiley Happy


Starting Score (07/2011): EQ 706 TU 709
Current Score (6/2013): EQ 740 TU 732 EX 740
Goal Score: 750+ on all 3

Re: I got my first "pre-selected" offer!

I have never received offer for cards before Smiley Surprised I may have opted out before I had turned 18 so I wasn't tempted. Now that I have proven to myself I am a responsible cardholder, is there a way to opt in? I only receive the invites to app for the Gold Delta Skymiles card, but I think thats because I am a skymiles member, and have an Amex Zync...

Re: I got my first "pre-selected" offer!

Well, you said you didn't receive offers for the * months or so while you were rebuilding, since I am somewhat up the FICO latter, and somewhat in "prime" world, I wonder if it will be the same...
