Re: Shopping Cart Trick??

For VS, add something to your cart. Go to checkout as guest, fill in your information as it would appear on your credit report. After filling in your billing information, press continue. Then it will show a little popup instead of the next screen which tells you that you have been pre-approved. If you have visitied/shopped at VS.com before, try clearing the cache in your browser or using an incognito tab within google chrome. Good luck!

Awesome....Thanks...Is it a SP only?  What other places does this work for and will they be SP or HP? I need to stay away from HP's  Sorry for sounding dumb but i have no idea what a incognito tab is....I understand the incognito part i just didnt realize such a tab existed. Is it easy to find?

Re: Shopping Cart Trick??

Just so everyone is clear....you are not required to complete the purchase. You can empty or sign out without having to purchase your items.

Also I heard if you are 'opt-out', you won't get the pop up.
