My JCP account was opened the 3rd week of Sept with a $200.00 limit. Have given it use and PIF. Worth trying now or just wait until January?

As others have said, you should wait at least 4 months. Also remember that JCP (or any other GE backed card) keeps an internal FICO score that they pull every 90 days or so. If you know when they soft pull you and make your timing right then n you have a very good shot at getting a good CLI.


I called them about a month ago knowing that their internal score has just refreshed. They told me they would need to hard pull CR. I said OK. Actually they never did because they have a fresh score in the system.

FICO Scores: EX 744 (Quizzle), myFICO EQ 675, myFICO TU 708
