Remarks I live in ohio... How would I find out... I wonder if I could call... I don't want a strike on my credit report if I am not getting the card... Declines are hurting me... Because in order to get the card I have to apply again in the near future

Remarks This card pulls from experian. I would not chance it. Go to lowes, they have the same appliances you are looking for, and they pull from EQ or TU. The financial backer is GE Money Bank! Good Luck!

Remarks According to credit pull db people in Ohio usually get transunion pulled. But YMMV... If you don't wanna take a chance than I suggest taking meya's advice.

Remarks Sears seems like one of the hardest CITI cards to get. I was approved for Macys and Bloomingdales, but denied to Sears twice in an 8 month period. I've since completely given up on them.

Remarks I was saying that she should apply for lowes because they pull EQ and TU and the finance backer is GEMB. I know that Sears is Citi, that is why I told her to take the lowes route. Citi is to chitty for me!

Thanks For The Info!! User Icon on 2008-04-30

Remarks I am not holding anyone responsible... I just want to avoid what I feel is a denial and a denial is bad enough yet alone an inquiry on your credit report for a card you didn't get!!! and then have to reapply somewhere down the road if you really want that card and take the chance of doing it all over again... I miss the days when everyone approved me... And for high credit lines too!!!(why did I screw up???)
