  • Don't you hate that! I don't think they actually pre-screen anyone. On top of that getting denied for a credit card hurts your credit score I was told! It's an evil circle I tell ya!

  • Well be happy. Credit cards can suck your soul out and make you so broke you can't even afford to feed your kids.

  • they can't legally prescreen you. they have to have a ssn for you to do it.

    so when they say preapproved... it's just a lure to make you apply. no one knows until you give up a ssn and all your info.

    and it does hurt your score just to run a report... not just being rejected.
