Thanks Carter,  I was hoping it would be EX, since they are my best score at 790.  Maybe I can sneak by with a EQ of 709.

Pretty sure JC Penny (GEMB) always pulls EQ.  BTW, the database I checked showed those who applied in store received MUCH better CLs than those who apped online. The only CLs at $1000 and above were in store apps. Another note.. my experience with JC Penny has been that they give frequent and generous CLIs. So, even if you choose to apply online and receive a small CL that will most likely grow quickly to a decent CL.

 

Mine went from $300 to $2900 in less than 2 years with very little usage.

 

Good luck to you!

Unless they've recently tightened their requirements that 708 score should be fine. I saw scores at 615- 620 receiving $400-$500  CL These approvals were dated 5/2009.

Vee, Carter, 

 

Thanks for the input.  The reason I was asking is that I am in the market for some new lounge chairs.  I happen to like the last set I got there about 15 yrs ago.  I know they will run about $1500 for the set.  I thought that I could maybe get a credit line with them, to help my mix, instead of just paying cash.  I guess I will go in and just talk to them in person.  I guess if they want to make the sale, they will have to approve me, dont you think? :smileywink:

Definitely best to apply in store and while making a purchase!   The highest opening CL I saw was $1500 on an in store app. If, by chance they don't give you the full $1500  I'd still open it and pay part of the cost  with cash or another card.
