Is PNC credit card easy to get? What score do they like to see?  Should I try 5/3 Bank?

Try First Progress Mastercard. It is the easiest one to get.  My brother have one.

I got this card last May with a 710 TU score. 0% BT for 12 months and by far my highest limit at that time at $17,500! When they approved me, they sent me a letter with my score, which was 684. I think they like to see high 600's. 

6/13: FICO TU (Walmart): 750

Goal: 780+, 0 Balances, No app'ing! (For real this time!!!)

When you applied were you a PNC banking customer? Also you mention your TU score in this reply but in other replies you mention that PNC pulled EX


Starting Score: EQ 686 10/18/11, TU 689 10/25/11, EX 685 10/11 (Amex Pull)....these are all FICO scores
Current Score: EQ 702 10/24/11, TU 689, EX 685
Goal Score: 750+

Score Update: EQ: 743 (02/03/12) TU: 741 (Walmart 01/11/12), now 761 as of 01/27/12 (Walmart), EX: 741 (Amex 01/04/12)

Yes, I was a PNC customer when I applied. I pulled my report from myFICO prior to applying and my TU was 710. When I was approved they sent me a mail that said I was approved and "the information we used was from your Experian report including your score of 684".

 

Hope this clears it up.

Thanks for responding Smiley Happy I wonder if I can apply for the card without being a PNC customer
