Re: Shopping Cart Trick (Jcrew, Preapproved!)

I tried to do the shopping cart trick for a couple of sites (A&F/Express/GbyGuess/J.Crew) and got the preapproval for J.Crew. It only asked for the last four of the SSN/DOB and I was approved for $250! Now I didn't finish purchasing the item (I just picked a random item just to test this out), does it cancel out the approval or am I still okay? I'm assuming I'm okay, but just wanted to make sure. Thank you!

Current Score: EX: 694 (As of 12/17/2013), EQ: 644 (As of 12/21/2013), TU: 662 (As of 12/12/2013 - Barclays)
Goal Score: 700 in all three (07/26/2014)
