can't believe it....approved WFNNB Victoria Secret, JCP and Walmart

So I decided to apply for the VS card since I have read that WFNNB is very forgiving with past credit histories. I have not applied for any cards since September 2011 which was for BOA preapproval and Walmart and I was denied on both. Cap 1 preapproval for credit steps which I was approved.....I  applied for VS on 21st and got the 7-10 day message which I thought was automatic denial. So I called the recon line today and they said I was approved for $300CL... I know its small but this is my first store card in over 10yrs since my target and macy's went to charge off. I guess they give people the 7-10 day message alot.

 

My current file:

AAoA 4yrs

Credit history 10yrs

They pulled my EQ which was at 634 but dropped 7pts after they did an inquiry.(was at 525 this time last yr)

civil judgement  $2900 from 2009

2 charge offs total $4400

1 paid collection

Re: can't believe it....approved WFNNB Victoria Secret

OMG!! today is my lucky day. So I went ahead and applied for a GEMB card just to see if I will be denied, I apped for JCP and was approved for $200CL, I called and did a recon and they gave me $400CL. I also applied for Walmart again and I was instantly approved for $400CL.Smiley Happy.. I am done with my mini app spree, I know I am about to take a huge hit with these hard inquiries and new accounts. I am looking forward to the great CLI from GEMB accts. The only card I want next is Amex in about 2yrs or so.
