Shopping Cart Trick (Jcrew, Preapproved!)

Got a 500 dollar limit. Been doing it for weeks, it was only after I activated my Express card that they finally gave me the damn pop up. I'm glad they gave a higher limit than my Express CC.  So for guys trying to get the Jcrew card, get the preapproval for buckle or express first, activate the card wait like a day or two, then try the shopping cart trick for Jcrew and I'm positive it will come up. Good luck! And yes it is a SP, no HP. Free credit!

Congrats. A similar track happened for me...except it was Express first, then Vicky's, Brylane Home and KingSize.

 

This is all in a 2 month span.

 

Almost $3K they've given me...not bad.

Re: Shopping Cart Trick (Jcrew, Preapproved!)

Thanks my suggestion is to keep trying. I think VS, Buckle, and Express are easy to get. Your address has to be the one that shows up on the credit report (bureau) they pull. If it's not the same then it won't work, period.
