Re: TARGET RED CARD

Not sure, but they gave me $1,000 and I have about 650s credit scores, a 2016 Bankruptcy, and TONS of inquiries.

That approval was about 10 days ago.

Re: TARGET RED CARD

Before applying for the card, just think about your goals.   If you want a credit card with some CL, it may not be a great choice as SL are often somewhat low compared to some other choices.    If you just want the 5% off at Target, the debit card is a good choice which doesn't impact your credit report (but with fewer protections on big ticket items)

Re: TARGET RED CARD

I don’t recall my credit score when I applied in 2016, but it was my second credit card. Got approved for $500 and never saw an auto-CLI; however, when I SD it last year, I got an auto-CLI to $4500 and an upgrade to MC.
