They do look at score, I know; however, that is just one of many factors they look at. They have some type of Vantage score ime. In the past six months, I have opened three new accounts :-/ lol
Opened Amex/Discover in October (after april, 6 mos will be up) and then Citi in February.
Citi pulled my Eq report THREE TIMES, which Im currently disputing and will continue to do so until they remove it; there is no damn reason they should have pulled my report three times especially when I only permitted them, in writing, to perform a soft pull on recon.
So... In 6 months, I only have like 1 inq on Exp (Amex), 1 on TU (Amex) and five on eq ( Amex, Discover, and three Citi hards).
Same stuff happened to me with chase last year...I applied and gave them permission for one pull and they pulled 3 on my TU 6 days apart...I'd dispute it but they are all falling off in may...but its annoying to have 3 HP's for one card
You can go to Chase and try the preapproval link. See is CSP shows up as one of the cards they would preapprove you for.
680 FICO (stupid internal Chase approval score)
1 year on a tradeline
Higher / longer / more respectively are better in all cases, but that's about the individual minimums I've seen; however, I would suggest that running right on the ragged edge of all three quite likely would lead to a denial. YMMV in all cases.
Sooooo....... Are you going to apply?
Probably the best move but its so hard not to app! lol
