Just checked up on CreditKarma. Average credit score approved for this card is 705 and lowest approved was "drumroll" 499? Wow. Maybe they had a backdated customer who begged and pleaded for them to take them back...anywaysss based on those scores I think you have a good shot! Not 100% guaranteed but I would say an 80% chance!
