From what I understand, the info you enter has to match what's on file with the CRAs exactly as they soft you for pre-approval.  It used to be that you needed to have created a user account on the website.  I have had success lately however with just using a guest account and not creating a profile (went on a WFNB shopping cart spree just to see what pre apps I could get).  I cannot get a pre-app for Eddie Bauer to save my life though, although Buckle and Express are perfectly willing to throw credit at me apparently. 

 

I have seen posts where people have to try multiple times before the shopping cart trick works for them.  I'd keep trying.  A healthy amount in the shopping cart prolly doesn't hurt, and remember if you get the pop-up and accept, you don't have to buy what's in the cart.  Good luck!
