What credit score do you need to get a Lowe's (or Home Depot) card? Will my scores get me one? We are closing on a home in 2 weeks and need a washer/dryer.
If you are closing on a home in 2 weeks...I advise not to open a new credit card account until you have closed escrow and your loan has funded. Opening a new account is a new liability to factor into the loan and will DELAY your processing and you may miss out on the house you picked.....wait.
