I applied online and only got an $800 limit.  How often do they give CLI?

Wow!  I don't want to risk applying only to receive such a low CL.  Maybe these other posters applied in-store and/or for a purchase and thus received higher limits.

 

Any of you that got these high CLs...could you please chime in with more info:  method of apping, scores and baddies, utilization, HHI etc that may have influenced the CL decision

 

 


 

After reading these posts, I decided to apply online. I have 3 baddies from 6 years ago. They were all settled and paid but are still hurting my score, Aanyway I was approved for $2000 CL. My score is 662.

I went online, put a $90 pair of earrings in my cart & then applied.  I don't know if that made a difference or not, but I'm thrilled and will LOVE those earrings!!!!

Re: Kays Instant Approval

When I was approved online it said that my credit was available for immediate use.  Does that mean online only or in the store as well?

Re: Kays Instant Approval

I applied online I did not even know you have better chance of getting approved in store. They pulled my credit report because it asked questions about my credit. I have only applied for this and a Home Depot Card in the last 2 year so I was very happy. I intend to make a purchase at the store shortly.

Starting Score: TU 560
Current Score: TU 750 EQ 731 EX 728?

Re: Kays Instant Approval

no purchase here......just went in and applied.  they always say in store apps are better, can't remember why, though.

i believe once you get the card you can purchase on line if approved in store.  i saw the paper w/ my limit on it and he said if i wanted to buy something before i got my card, to come to the store.

 

my unerstanding though from another thread was you need to purchase something in two yrs or they decrease your CL....

 

good luck! :smileyhappy:

Re: Kays Instant Approval

I got approved for Kay's and two weeks later for Jared.  It is my understanding that each report as a separate TL on your credit report with the full limit of each, but you actually share the limit between the stores since they are affiliated.  I applied online, and got $2000 limit for each one.  You do not have to buy something right away to get the card.

 

1)  Online

2)  592 (EQ) BK discharged 3/09 - 3 public records (2 BKs and a satisfied judgment); 12 negative accounts (but all zero due to BK); 1 $710 collection still showing a balance although it is incorrect, 2 positive student loans.

3)  Zero for revolving accounts.

4)  $69,300/yr.

FICO® Scores 11/07: TU 531 -- EQ 457 -- EX 464; 08/09: TU 518 -- EQ 597 -- EX ??;
09/09: TU 590 -- EQ 610 -- EX ??; 05/10: TU 610 -- EQ 611 -- EX ??
EQ: 17 to 4 baddies; 3 to 1 public records
EX: 24 to 5 baddies; 2 to 1 public records
TU: 28 to 2 baddies; 3 to 1 public records

Re: Kays Instant Approval

I went on line to purchase my Experian score and report and it said that it was an Experian Plus score. Is that a true score or a fake score? I'm interested in apping for Kays. I went to experian.com is that where I get the score?

Unfortunately, since Feb.'09 we aren't able to buy our true EX Fico score. Any EX score you purchase now is a FAKO.
