Reality Check

Helpful to 1 out of 1 people

The Credit card companies and their advertising on this site are what pay for this site. They get paid weather you are approved or not so they always recommend the cards.

I, for one, have never appied for a card off this or any other website.  I only apply for cards that have mailed me a "Pre-approved" app, and then only if i really like the terms and interest rate & I have never been denied. 

Try some credit mining...  Thats where you do everything just short of actually appling for a card on a site that has your info such as CK.  I generally get a pre-approved app in the mail with in a few days.

Good luck

You shouldn't...... It's the same thing as getting a pre-appoved letter. Just because your pre-approved doesn't mean that you will be approved.
