Haha I just tried the shopping cart trick to see if it was really that wasy. Added some random stuff to my card, about $250 worth, and went to check out. As soon as I enter my name and address and click "continue", got a pop-up -
You've been pre-approved for the Angel Credit Card, with a credit limit of $750.
Start earning reward points now.*
it also said that the accounts are backed by WFNB
I'm not going for it, as one of two things would happen if my wife saw the card - Either she'd max it out, or assume I am having an affair .
At least I get a free guage of my current credit-worthiness
Don't mean to thread-jack, but while I'm posting I do have a question - is that a pretty standard CL based on what the rest of you see on the pop-up, or am I on the low-end?
according to an ae sales person 400 is high..... (backed by ge)
i didnt get any pop up.
for 200 worth. 20 dollars for shipping for 5 days they must be cray.
I think you are on the high end. Wholly unscientific observation based upon stuff I've seen lurking around here is that they generally start between 250-500. From what I hear it does grow with you. I've only had it since April and have put a lot through it, and have been experimenting with PIF and carrying a balance for one month, then PIF. It will be interesting to see what of a CLI I can get (if any lol).
GE cards on the other hand are a little wierd in terms of starting limits, IMO. My AE Visa was $1900 instant approval in store, my girlfriend who apped the same day got $2100. About a 20K difference between HHI. Belk, which I got prior to AE was I think 1200, have since gotten a CLI to whatever it is in my siggy now assuming I remembered to update.
Score: 702 (Discover approval 08/03)

Picking up my intro spade and stepping in the garden. Let's grow some pretty roses!
