Pre-approvals offers in the mail

I have notice since rebuilding my credit in March 2013, for the past couple of weeks/days I have been getting several pre-approvals from various companies, this has not happen in years. Am I now on some creditor’s radar? I have received offers from Credit One, Sprint, T-mobile, and also some catalog store cards. I have thrown them in the mail because I know better. When my scores are in the range of 700s and up, will I also get great offers from these creditors in the mail?  Also will I be able to see these soft pulls in my Credit Report from these companies?

Starting Score: EX: 650 EQ: 630 TU: 620 01/06/2014
Current Score: EX: 673 EQ: 673 TU: 643 05/06/2015 / Last App: 05/04/2015 / In the Garden Until: 01/04/2017
Desired Scores EQ 700 EX 700 TU 700

Sounds like you are starting to be in the radar... isn't it great!?

You might see the sp's if you pull frull reports from the credit report directly (Fico reports won't show it I don't believe) not really worth paying for a full report if you can't get it free just to see who is softing you though (in my opnion)

Re: Pre-approvals offers in the mail

I started getting them in the mail too after I began. It's such a great feeling!! Now I get preapprovals from places like fingerhut and first premier too. I think it's kind of funny because they are builder cards and when I had no credit they didn't want anything to do with me. Now I have prime cards and they are over me!
