My first pre-approval guess where its going...

It's nice to finally be on the list for companies pre-approval consideration.This time last year my credit scores were in the mid 500's. But First Premier is not my idea of a great option.It will be going straight in the shredder.Now a Discover Card pre-approval would be a whole other thing:smileytongue:

Re: My first pre-approval guess where its going...

Yes, it does feel good to be wanted because this time last year the only desire coming my way was from my lady. I want prime cards only and willing to do the work needed to get them.Time is moving fast we are nearly in november  and march is when my only collection falls off my credit file.I think my score will then be near the 740's. I'm eyeing Discover and Citi cards.
