View Your Pre-Approved & Pre-Qualified Credit Card Offers
Most credit card issuers now allow you to view cards that you’ve been pre-approved for online. Here is a full list of issuers that do allow this, along with the relevant websites/contact information.
Just because you’ve been pre-approved/pre-qualified, doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be approved, credit card issuers will do a hard pull on your credit report before they approve you and if your circumstances have changed you might be denied for a card they’ve pre-qualified you for. Click here to find out what these terms actually mean.
For those just wanting the links, here is the short list. Keep reading on for more information on all of the pre-qualifaction finders.
- American Express (personal)
American Express (business)(currently not working)
- Bank of America
Barclaycard(currently not working)
- Capital One
- Chase Pre Qualified Offers
- US Bank
You can find out if you have “any special offers waiting for you” by going to https://www.americanexpress.com/ then clicking card offers and entering your full name, address and the last four digits of your social security number. You can view this page by:
- Click “cards” in the top bar
- Click “view all Personal and Charge cards”
- Click “Check For Pre-Qualified Offers”
If you don’t see this promotion then it’s likely than you’re signed into your account. I’d recommend either signing out or using an incognito mode window.
It’s also possible to check for small business cards.
Update: I can’t currently get small business card pre-approvals to show up due to a new interface. If anybody knows please let us know in the comments.
- Click “cards” in the top bar
- Click “View All Small Business Cards”
- Scroll to bottom of the page and then enter your information where it says: “See if you qualify for a special offer”

Credit One is a sub prime lender and as such most of their cards have high fees and interest rates.

Here are the direct links for a number of smaller card issuers/store credit cards.
- Milestone gold (this is another woeful credit card, which we wouldn’t recommend)
We hope you found this post helpful, if you did why not let our readers know which credit cards you were pre-qualified for? And also let us know if you know of any other places people can check for pre-approved offers.
