Re: When did you start getting pre-approvals and who gave them to you?

When my credit was worse than it is now (high 500's?) I was getting rebuilder preapprovals from the usual suspects.  Those have stopped recently except for the occasional auto loan preapproval from those type of subprime guys.  I think I'm in the lull now where I'm not a hot target for sub primers, but not close enough for the mid-high level guys to give a crap.  Soon, hopefully.  The chances of me not applying to the first decent preapproval are very low.  Zero self control here.

Pulled a first premier and Walmart preapproval in the same day last week. The Walmart one was weird, since I just got one on my own last month
