Pep Boys credit card

Does anyone have the Pep Boys credit card? What scores do they look for? Are they stingy with CL?

Pep Boys card is Car Care One from GEMB. I have this card. (Not from Pep Boys, but another automotive retailer - Transmission Experts.)

If you're already in good with GEMB, then you have a good chance at a nice credit line. I already had Walmart & Paypal Buyer Credit when I applied & had a Equifax FICO of 719 at the time. I had applied online a few months earlier with 679 Equifax FICO and got denied.

The lady at the shop told me that they like it when you apply in-store with a specific amount in mind and that will increase your chance of a higher limit over applying online. My bill was $1200 and they gave me a $2000 credit limit.

It's a great card to have. First charge was 0% interest for 6 months & the card can be used at Exxon gas stations too!

I have the same card, I got it from Discount Tire when I was buying new wheels and tires. The cool thing is it works at gas stations too, only Exxon and Mobil though.

I would like to buy a scooter at Pep Boys for $899.  I see they are GEMB. I have a chapter 7 BK discharged in 04.  Has anyone had success getting this card in a similar situation, and what kind of fico?
