Well, the thing about almost every credit card out there is that the current state of your credit score is not the only factor that determines whether or not you are going to be eligible for their credit card; however, your current credit score is a very important factor in deciding whether or not you’re eligible. I’m not sure what credit score American Eagle is requiring all of their eligible applicants to have. One important thing to remember is that most store cards do not need a perfect credit score. At the same time, they do not want applicants with horrible credit either. I would say that you would be a good judge in determining whether or not you should try applying. And by the way, you can apply for the card by visiting American Eagle.com or Aerie.com, or you could visit the closest store and ask for assistance.
