Does anyone know the criteria for getting approved for the Ikea card? I'm rebuilding my credit, have $0 in collections as I've recently settled the last two on my report.My scores are EQ - 526, TU - 668, EX - 542 as of this morning. Any ideas?


[EDIT] - If I'd dug a little deeper, I would have found this thread: GEMB Cards


[EDIT] - I just pulled my other two scores.

Well, I have an answer straight from the horse's mouth: DENIED! I applied this evening in an IKEA store and was presented with the 10 to 15 day letter message. At least I tried, right?
