Target Store Credit Card

From what I hear, the Target card is fairly easy to get with most people being approved in the low 6's... Is this true? Do any of you have the card? I'm considering applying and I'm curious about this card..

Goal: 700 and an Amex Card!

Re: Target Store Credit Card

I applied back in 2008 and was approved with a $200 limit.  I'm not sure what my exact scores were but I'm sure it had to be around the very low 600s.

About 3 months later, they raised my limit to $500 and it has been there since.

Re: Target Store Credit Card

I have always had horrible limits with them but I have never been declined... and INQ were never an issue in the past but I have see a "LOT" of posts lately that they have gotten REALLY sensitive to INQ which doesn't make sense to me at all... I have 4 cards with them. $300, $200, $200, $1500.  The $1500 started at $200 up to $1000, and then just recently the increase to $1500... this was my 3rd card and the only one I have seen get an increase EVER.

Fico Scores: EQ 657 Cabelas, TU 653 Barclay, EX 699 Wells (07-27-14)

Highest Limit: Fidelity Amex $25k (AU)
Lowest Limit: Express $300
