Re: Pre screened offers continue

I know the feeling.  I used to have killer credit - messed that up.  Forever I didn't get any mailers, almost as if I opted out.  Just the other day I got the Matrix garbage myself.  I literally LOL'd as I read the fee table.  It was brutal.

 

I don't think the type of offer is as telling as the fact you (and I) seem to be attracting interest again.  It can't be a bad thing (unless you app for Matrix) :smileyhappy:

Talk about who makes no sense... grammar matters.  Yes, I was referring to you.  You're implying a FICO score drives CL's.  I'm telling you more goes into it than that.  You can start with income and work your way through the other non-financial metrics such as employment.

Got pre-screened offer in mail today for first national of Omaha (second pre-screen from them) and Matrix discover (with a stellar 27% apr).

At least they are still coming in. Nothing from Chase, Citi, Barclays or Amex yet.

It sure is a nice feeling to get pre approved offers, isnt it? I think it is only a matter of time before you start getting from the above mentioned lenders!
