State Farm Credit Cards

Just a few questions about them. Does it help approval odds if you are an insurance customer with them?  Also, are we sure which CBR they pull and if they are a strict lender?  Just was checking on those.

 

Thanks!

It helps if you are a policyholder, but uncertain who they pull for approvals. I've had my Visa for many years & can't recall when processing my application.

Re: State Farm Credit Cards

I'm not sure if it's the same, but I cameacross a thread about a state farm card credit increase and said they pulled TU for their increase...look up other threads on this site and see if they can clue you in

They pull TU almost exclusively.  They claim the Bank and Insurance are separate entities, but I can't help but think having insurance helps.

Re: State Farm Credit Cards

Can't say about their overall rules, but they pulled TU for me.

 

I have been a State Farm customer for years, and they denied me.  Smiley Sad

True.  My initial limit was $3000 and I was denied the first attempt.
