Wamu Pre-Approval?

I applied for  the wamu credit card back in march and was denying due to too many inquires. Today I received  a pre-approved offer. I'm not sure if I should accept this offer. I have opened 3 stores cards and one new credit card since I last applied for wamu.

My score at that time was 598 in my Ex report and now is 640. The reason why I applied for this card was for the monthly fico score.

Re: Wamu Pre-Approval?

Yes, but you've app'd 4 more times since then. They already declined you for too many inquiries. They'll more than likely decline you for the same reason.

Re: Wamu Pre-Approval?

Not so. They still have to check your CR and those new inquiries will show. And think about it. If I am pre-approved, why do they need to check my credit report? Just send me the dang card! I'll decide if I want to activate it or not.

If you want to apply, by all means, do so. I just figured you would not want to take another hit. Those darn inquiries can cut like a knife.

Re: Wamu Pre-Approval?

I got a WAMU pre-approval notice with virtually miserable credit some while back and they gave me a $3500.00 CL to start off with. With that being said, although my credit sucked, I also deposited just short of a million dollars into my one account with them (over that previous year).

Therefore, it is in my opinion that Wamu heavily weighs current big money or simply good banking customers into their approval scheme even when their credit is questionable at best.
*I used to dread being a member of the 700 Club because I thought it came included with a Pat Robertson blow up doll... the very thought scared me into bad credit.*

You have to wait 90 days to apply again at WaMu.
