What scores need to qualify for a Target red card?

[ Edited ]
I have seen this before but cannot remember. What do scores need to be before approval? Don't want the inquiry if it won't do any good.

Re: What scores need to qualify for a Target red card?

I just received my card.  Scores TU (626), Eq (606), Ex (619).  Approved for the Visa at $500 limit. Hopefully, after a few months that cl will go up.  I've read on the forum 3 months does the trick!  Good luck!

I believe you need mid to high 500s for the store card. I also  know that if you use a debit card at the register, and your scores are good enough, Target will give a pre-approval offer. I don't know how that affects inquiries.

I had 650 score and I got denied for both cards so I don't think there is a hard and fast rule.
