What should your credit score be to have a preapproval from Commenity Bank Store

Yes, you can try more than one store in a day.  Since the pre-approval is via soft pull, it won't impact your FICO scores.  

 

Not sure what the minimum requirement is; it probably varies by store.  You should know that it seems to be a rather arbitrary process.  It worked at Victoria's Secret the first time I tried it.  It took multiple attempts, before I finally got the J. Crew.  I stopped trying at Chadwick's.  Some people have fouror more accts via the trick, others have none.

 

Good luck!  Post your progress.

Jmills approvals won't affect your garden statues either Lol Go for it

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
