Sams Club prequalified???

hello, DH and i were in Sams the othere day and upon renewing our membership the guy at the counter told him he was preapproved for a Sams credit acct, DH is predisposed to automatically say no and he did. i'm pretty sure if either of us straight out applied for this we would be denied. i figured we would have to wait until the offer popped up at a register if it ever did.....but today, he got a letter from sams stating he was "prequalified" for a sams club personal credit card acct. It has an acceptance certificate and doesn't say anything about apping just says "two ways to accept your card" . Also gives a date he's prequalified until. Now the fine print does say we may be unable to open an account in your name if we determine that you no longer meet out credit criteria. It says take the acceptance cerificate to sams. Does anyone have experience with this? Is this a going to be a hard pull at the service desk and an denial or could it be true??? Thanks in advance!!!

ITS APPROVED!!

 

Many years ago I straight out applied and was denied... just couple weeks later I received the pre-approval in mail letter and was approved for $1500!!

 

I have NEVER once seen someone get the pre-approval in mail, at register, in store anywhere and accept it and then be told no... TAKE IT!

I'm inclined to agree.  If they say you are approved at the register I'd be beyond shocked if you were denied unless you've had major changes in your profile for the worse in the last month or two.

Thanks! I think we are going to Sams tomorrow, lol! There shouldnt have been any negative changes, he's abt one year into rebuilding with 2 credit cards and perfect payment history. Will keep you updated :smileyhappy:

Re: Sams Club prequalified???

I was at Sam's the other day, and I was pre-approved at the register.  Answered all the questions and was approved for the Sam's Discover with $2500.  So far no HP for the acceptance.  Go for it, I'm sure you'll be fine.

7-10 days message:smileysad:  just going to keep our fingers crossed. Yes the opt out notice was at the bottom of the letter. c'est la vie, i knew it was too early to app for anything but we have recently had luck with the shopping cart trick. DH did not accept any of the offers, i accepted VS and JCrew, low cl for now but i think i was super lucky considering my low scores. DH got offered higher cl than me so i thought maybe we could get lucky with Sams.
