Scores required for Sears or Home Depot...Citi products?

Anyone here recently received new credit from Home Depot/Sears/Citi?  Just wondering what my scores should be before I consider applying.

 

Thanks,

Angie

LOL..ok.  Your scores are a "bit" higher than mine, ha ha.  I am hoping since I had a previous paid as agreed accounts with Citi, that perhaps they will consider me.

Mine were low 600s EQ when I applied.  First time I applied for Sears (backed by Citi) declined, but a week later approved $1,800.  Declined for Home Depot (Citi backed)  Declined for Citi Forward CC (obviously Citi backed)

 

So I think it varies with the particular card.  Would be nice if places posted a general score/income they want to see so people wouldn't waste their time.

Starting Scores 10/12: EQ 460 (FICO)/TU 502 (FAKO)/EX 474 (FAKO)
(7/14): EQ 572 (FICO)/TU 624 (FICO)/ EX 612 (FICO)

Current (2016): EQ 605 (FICO)/TU 657 (FICO)/EX 646 (FICO)

It seems lately that the scores have gone up, anything above 680 is normally what they go for, but a lot also has to do with the complete credit picture your report is going to have on it. That means no recent negative info and strong payment history.

Ok, thanks so much. Smiley Happy I suppose since I have one one inquiry in the past twelve months that it literally won't hurt to apply.
