How do Care Credit pre-approval and online applications work?

Please have a look at the below important points.

  • If you want to apply for a new Care Credit card then it is advised to check if you are pre-qualified for an offer. If you are pre-qualified and submit a full online application, your chances of final approval are very high.
  • In the process of applying for a credit card, a hard inquiry on your credit profile is performed which may impact your credit score. It would be better to use the pre-approval check and submit a full application once you are approved in the pre-approval process.
  • One more thing to note is that the pre-approval and further online application processes must be completed together. If you qualify in the pre-approval process then you will have to apply online and submit a complete application without exiting your browser. If you exit your browser then you will have to again perform the pre-approval check.
  • You can submit a maximum of four pre-qualification applications in a day.
  • The pre-qualification process is just to increase the final approval probability. The actual credit card application will start once you qualify for the pre-approval check.
  • Pre-qualification is a very fast process and takes some seconds to share the final result.
  • Submitting a pre-qualification form does not impact the credit score. It is done by performing a soft inquiry.

Note: Pre-approval facility is available only through the online website and mobile app. You can not check if you are pre-qualified if applying through phone calls or direct visits.
