**UPDATE** Victoria Secret Shopping Cart Trick...Again???

Last week I accepted the VS card via Shopping Cart Trick. The card has already arrived. Tonight I was browsing around the VS website and the Shopping Cart Trick popped-up again!!!??? I entered my info and it approved me again!! Is this a glitch? Will this second card be cancelled?

 

YES....the second card arrived today: I activated it and registered it online with no problem. So it is possible to get 2 of the same cards at the same store via the Shopping Cart Trick. My AAoA will be fine since I have open trade lines 21-22 years old.

July 2016 Scores: 654-705 ...No Lates, CA's or CO's, new car + high Util
Current Cards: SDFCU Secured ($300); Logix Secured ($500); Tobyhanna/Penfed FCU ($5000); NFCU CLOC ( $15,000); NFCU Refi ($18,144) Sony Visa ($3000); Apple PC'd to Rewards MC ($1200); Barclay Rewards MC ($1300); B&N ($500); Discover ($1000); 'Credit Steps' ($2300), QS One ($750);Care Credit ($9000); US Bank Platinum ($5000); Fifth Third SU2C ($3000); Kay's/Jared's ($4700); Target ($2000); Fingerhut/Gettington ($2250); **All my favorite retail cards ($61,000)..Luv'Em..they get heavy use!

Good question not sure if they will give you 2 cards

But question why go for a second TL and risk lowering scores when the new TL reports on CR's Smiley Surprised

You have enough now to build a great profile 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Odd, but it does happen from time to time.  It's likely a system glitch and the 2nd card may get cancelled...maybe.  However, in the event it doesn't, then you'll have two cards and if so (depending on what you're purchasing) maybe use one card for panties and the other one for bras?

@Journey:

I was just curious to see if it was really going to go through. We'll see if it shows up.

Did you have a profile or did you do guest checkout ? How many items did you have in your cart and what was the total.
I currently in the process of rebuilding my credit. Experian has me at 740 and I've had a WF $500 secured card for about 2 years. I just recently got Macy $300 - Walmart $200 - Bank of America $500 (secured) - Chase Freedom $1K - Kohls $300 - JCrew $300 - Barclaycard - 1K - Buckle $300 - Sears Mastercard $400 - BestBuy Mastercard $400 - Guess I am gardening since Dec 31, 2013 for at least 6 months. Im screwed up during the holidays and acquired 6 new credit cards. Its so difficult!
