Actually, I got the SCT to work for me on Overstock. It showed up as a hard pull, but it was only on there for like a week. Don't ask me how or why, but it's not on my credit report now, and I just got the card last month. So I don't think it's dead...maybe just not as lively as before. lol
And congrats on the high limit! I only got approved for 250 or 300. Can't remember. But it's probably because of my income. Oh well. I was just glad to have another account open!
Maybe they might be backpedalling on the HP's. I'll keep checking and may re-vamp the SCT thread. Were at the 6 month mark when they started the HP's. We'll see.
Unless an extremely delayed HP comes my way from these 3 recent approvals, I am confident the shopping cart trick is still in existance.
