Re: Which stores can you do the shopping cart trick on?

Victoria's Secret - as other said - Comenity Bank

 

The "trick" is during the checkout process (after you have filled out your name, address, etc.), some companies (including Comenity) can run your info against a SP on your credit report to pre-approve you for a credit line. This pre-approval pops up and you agree to the pre-approved credit. You don't actually have to finish the check out process.

 

Special note, asking if you'd like to APPLY for their credit is not the same as "pre-approved for $XXX credit"

Buckle

Crate and Barrell

Abercrombie

There's quite a few others...mostly women's clothing stores and a couple furniture places.

 

I just got a recent SP approval through Express a couple days ago....they did the SP on EQ for me but I've heard it's usually EX.

Just because their card is issued by WFNNB / Comenity doesn't mean they do checkout soft pulls.
