Think I could get an approval from sears???

[ Edited ]

I am thinking of applying for credit at Sears.   I have always heard they are very difficult to get approval from so now I'm not sure if I want to risk the approval.


My EQ score is 680.  The summary says amount of credit -  good,    history- very good,    new credit - good,    length- great.   I now have no collections, last late was 3.6 years ago.  I was just reading some older post and how difficult they are.    I have a new mortgage 5/2009 and a new CU CC 12/2009.


TU is 710


EX ??


Any thoughts???

Sears - Citibank branded product, most assuredly Equifax (from recent experience). BTW- I am in CA. May be different in other parts of the country. Another Sears branded product I recently applied for (Home Depot) pulled Experian. So you never know.

Starting Score: TU: ?-- EQ: ?--EX 560 (8-08)
Current Score: TU: 671 (3-10) 625 (4-10/Rebucketed)--EQ: 674 (3-10)--EX 630 (Lender 11-09)
Goal Score: TU: 750--EQ: 760

Push,  do you mind if I ask if you were approved or not?  My EQ is 680, TU 710, and EX 660 (lender in November).
