I'm Gardening, so I can not use the trick just yet (although it's tempting), but I keep reading the posts saying how you get a pop up at check out...

Are you supposed to create an account first, then add items to the cart, etc? Were you already a heavy shopper with that store? I tried going to VS

and adding a bunch of things into the cart and clicking "checkout" and nothing happened..


Why not just apply for the VS card if you want it?  You don't need an invitation.    IMO, Store cards are great if you are a frequent customer.

This is why I always ask the ladies what their Fico Scores are before I start dating them. I tell them to delete my number if their response is "what's a fico score?"
