from what ive read you can do the shopping cart trick for vs. 

make an account. put all the correct info and put some stuff in the cart. 

then when you go to check out should give you a pop up for a cc saying your pre approved. 

and from what i read on the other thread its not even a hard pull even if you accept. 

 

 

as for shopping what do you plan on buying for the list? do you want store cards or something you could use anywhere?

Exactly my question. Why bother with store cards??  The JCP I have is my oldest card, otherwise , I'd shut it down as I NEVER use it.

Re: Its that time of year again...

I do have many cards such as amex gold, freedom, citi thankyou, discover more and nordstrom visa 

i am proably going to apply for bloomingdales which is easy approval and one other card. I like store cards because of the perks and if you pay them in full you always get a increase

Re: Its that time of year again...

I use to not see the benefit in having store cards since I have a few visa's and MC's. However, as a Bloomies, Macy's, VS and Nordstrom card holder, the coupons, sales and perks of being a cardholder has gotten me some great deals. Because store cards tend to have outrageous APR's, I just PIF each month. But they are great to have around the holidays.

Re: Its that time of year again...

I can't (don't want to) app for new credit for awhile.  I'm hoping I get a Wally Discover upgrade though.  That would make my year!
