Re: Lowes LUV button!

lets say you hit the luv button, and get turned down, would this lower your credit score?

Nope, no reason to. The only time that your credit score (I hope you're paying attention to FICO scores, and not FAKO scores from Experian, TrueCredit, and the others) goes up or down is when something changes on your credit reports.

If you haven't already, please read Understanding Your FICO ® Score and Credit Scoring 101 (at least the first post.)

These will give you the background knowledge you need to understand what you read here on the forums.

Re: Lowes LUV button!

I have a Lowes card with a $7400 credit limit (got it back in January of 2009 with that opening limit). I hit the LUV button last month, and got turned down. Was hoping they would bump me up a bit since I started with a $2400 balance on it and paid it in full within the 12 months, but they did not.

 

Congrats on the increase!
