Tried the shopping cart trick with VS. Got the message saying I was pre-approved for $1000, submitted the last 4 of my social and DOB. Then it gave me the 7-10 day message. :smileysad:


Just a quick update on this. I have yet to get a letter or card in the mail. Although upon updating my credit report I see a new account. "Comenity Bank/VCTRSS" showing up as opened 10/1/12 with a $1k limit. No HP showed up as of today and I used the shopping cart trick about a week ago now.
Looks like I got it, wife will be happy! :smileyvery-happy:

I will take a little hit on AAoA, but it will help my utilization.

Re: I see many vs angel card here. Got a question.

Kind if off topic. But how long does it take to get the card? I was instantly approved over a week ago and I'm still waiting on the card :smileysad:

Re: I see many vs angel card here. Got a question.

So, I did the shopping cart trick on a few WFFNB (or is it WFNNB) backed cards...

 

A Trade Line for a Soft Pull, why not?

 

Well, I realized I hardly shop at these stores, and may never use these cards, as they have outrageous APR's.

 

I don't plan on closing them, as there isn't an AF, and it's a positive TL.

 

(I probably do plan on throwing the physical card away)

 

It can also help with utlization. Do CLI happen automatically, or can I call in and get them without every buying anything with the card?

Chase Southwest $5000 - November 2012 Wal Mart $1000 - November 2012 NFCU Visa $5,000 - Sept 2012 NFCU NavCheck $3,000 - October 2012 Amazon $900 - Aug 2012 Kay's Jewlery $2700 - Aug 2012 Buckle $250 (Shopping cart trick) - October 2012 Roaman's $250 (Shopping cart trick) - October 2012 Capital One Secured $225 - April 2012 Capital One Platinum $2500 - July 2012

I doubt that they will continually raise your limits if you never even use the card once.

 

We have had a few auto CLIs, but not many.  Lots of people just call in & ask for them.

Re: I see many vs angel card here. Got a question.

I've seen people who never used it once get 5-10x CLI increase... just saying..... of course they didn't request it the conventional way =)
