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.
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.

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.
