Interested in getting Nordstrom card.

I am thinking of getting a Nordstrom card. Is this a hard card to get approved for? Do they give decent limits on the card? What credit score is needed? Thanks for any help.

Re: Interested in getting Nordstrom card.

I don't know whether this would have any affect, but I was an employee when applied an approved.


My score at the time was about 630-640 and I had probably 48% util. No inquiries and a few old baddies, maybe 2 or 3 that were 4yrs old.


The limit was $500, but with my credit file at that time, can you blame em? They are generous with increases, from what I've read.

I just recently got the standard credit card from them. They gave me $3000 for the limit, and my scores are in the mid 700's. Good luck.
