My doggie just got another PreApproval from Cap1. hehe.

[ Edited ]
Because of your responsibility CAP1 says my doggie was preapproved for a MasterCard with a credit limit up to $5000. I should apply next time and send in a photo. :smileyhappy: They have even been tracking his age over the years, adding 1 year making him a year older too. Each year they changed him to 19, 20, 21, ect. How did he get such good credit? I better check to make sure he didn't add himself as an AU on my credit. :smileywink: I filled out a mag add for a free catalog years ago using my dogs name. No social or anything. I thought the catalog was fishy.

How on earth did he get on their mailing list?

And shouldn't his age be going up by 7's?

Filled out a catalog years ago with my dogs name for free stuff. I used his age in dog years. Then when they calculated he was 18 they started sending him preapprovals. First student cards, then regular cards, and now prime and business cards apps. hehe.

I'm laughing my b*tt off! 
 
"People to People" got my DD's name somehow and hard marketed her through her father.  She was despondent when I was not as enthusiastic.
 
So, our cat Montgomery got nominated on the website.  DD "saw the light" when Gomer got his P2P invitation for his "outstanding academic successes and community participation" or something like that.
 
Gomer still gets invitations from them, pity he went to glory last year....

My neighbor gets pre-approved credit card offers for his dog all the time.  Years ago, he and his wife signed her up for BMG music when she was a puppy.  Anyway, I am sure this labrador retriever would love to have a PetsMart visa card.  More toys and dog treats...:smileyhappy:
