What credit do you need to have to get approved for their visa card? Do they give instant approvals pretty often? My girlfriend wants apply for one, her own credit history is very short, but she is on a couple of my cards as an AU and has pretty high scores... we are hoping for an "instant" decicion"))
700 ish, if for some reason she doesn't qualify for the visa they'll consider her for the store card automatically. after a few months she can easily qualify for the visa upgrade with a good payment history on the store card. less than 3 EQ inq b4 app is key.
ps. there's no 's' it's just Nordstrom. i just recently realized this.

will it keep her from getting approved instantly though?
I dont think so as long as applied in the store with proof of drivers license. There is no guarantee you might get instant approval in store. They might ask you to call back after a day or two. If a purchase is made and applied for the card, chances of getting approval are high. As you know there is no guarantees for any thing.

I applied for Nordstrom online in May on a Saturday night, and my conflicting addresses created a delay. I called and faxed copies of several documents TWICE. They claimed they lost the first fax.
The following Saturday I showed up at Customer Service with my DL, phone bill, two credit card bills and car insurance summary showing my proper current address. Within minutes I was approved for a Visa Signature with $3,000 CL. But they did pull EX after pulling EQ the week before.
I definitely recommend her applying in-store, and "happen to have" all her documents in her purse.
It is a cool card with the rainbow design, and the sales people really give great service.
