UPDATE SLOW TO GET AN ALERT BUT THEY HARD PULLED EXPERIAN
Shopping with wife and making a decent size purchase $600 which I was going to put on a credit card and PIF when it posts.
Rep suggested we apply for Bloomies card.
I really didn't want the hard pull but what the heck %15 off in store for 2 days saved us $90.
It was approved with a relatively low $1,500 starting limit.
Odd thing is I didn't get any alerts about a hard pull and normally my phone lights up like a Christmas tree if I even think of apping. Between CK, MyFiCO, Amex, Trusted ID, Credit Sesame and others not a single alert. I have noticed MyFICO can be a day late for changes but the others are usually as it happens.
I update the thread end of day but maybe just maybe in store app may not be a hard pull.
Congrats on your approval !!!!
Congratulations on your approval!
$1500 is actually a pretty decent starting limit for a department store card. Use it well and it'll grow.
