Nordstrom Approval

I was just approved for the Nordstrom Retail with a Sub-600 Experian Score... $300...no complaints...thought I'd be denied. I just wanted to buy a particular gift for my partner so I applied.

Re: Nordstrom Approval

Excellent!  I don't shop at Nordie's, the parking at our local store is atrocious.

Re: Nordstrom Approval

It's always nice to get an approval while in the rebuilding stage.  I remember LOTS of denials for sure!

This is good to hear!. I'm researching for the best strategy to get good CLI with them.

Re: Nordstrom Approval and Question

Question...I had to call in to get my SL. The rep told me that I could ask for a CLI in 4-6 months.  I see hear everyone else is saying I should wait 7 months...any updated opinions.

If you are responsible with this card, and pay on time, you more than likely will not have to request a CLI. You will probably get them automatically. My card started out at $500 and it has gotten 4 auto increases.....I am up to $5500 and never once did I have to ask. Congratulations!!!

Re: Nordstrom Approval and Question

Thanks Country, 

 If I can ask - how long have you had your card?
