PayPal mc invitation to apply pops up when I log in

That doesn't sound like pre approval does it. Anyone get this screen and was approved?

Aren't you supposed to be gardening?

Yeah, I got it and applied. Approved for $700 with a 595 TU. Probably because of my thick file because most people with scores close to mine get $300, and from what I read, I'm the first known approval with a sub-600 score.

It is a marketing solicitation to apply, not a pre-approved offer OP.  I get them all the time despite of already having both PayPal and eBay MCs.

FWIW, Sync doesn’t care about either of those for approvals. They do care when it comes to CLI requests (I’m still getting shot down on my PayPal Cashback 7 months in because and the reason is too many inquiries) but I would be shocked if Sync didn’t approve you with the scores in your sig. 700 is the mark where they tend to open the purse strings. 

Since you’re gardening, I would just do that and app when you get an offer that has a SUB. They go out sometimes and can be a combination of $25-$100 and/or 0% intro APR periods. The PayPal Cashback doesn’t normally have either.

It’s not at all uncommon for creditors to put you in a CLI freeze for awhile when you get approved with borderline scores. February is not even 6 months. I think you’re being a bit unreasonable with your expectations of them. They’re still getting to know you.

It is just marketing. I get the popup once a week on my PayPal account and an email for the card every other week.
