I bit the bullet and applied for NORDSTROMS this morning. They stated they would notify me with in 7 days. I could not wait, so I called them. They approved me for $2000.00 for the store card, I could upgrade within 4 months. The nice man also told me that if I wanted to upgrade to a visa or get a CLI they would NOT pull a new credit report, they would base it on my payment history.
I am sooo excited ! Thank you guys!!!
BTW, I live in California and they pulled equifax. My score is 640 with (2) paid collections one in 2003 and 2008
(0) inquires.....However, I did have to provide proof of residence and my drivers license
