When it comes to just how eligible you are going to be for any credit card, you must always remember that your current credit score is not the only factor that determines whether or not you will be approved for the card. However, it is a very important one. The thing is, Sports Authority is not requiring all their applicants to have a perfect credit score of 800 or more. They do not want applicants with a score of 500 either. As long as you have fair enough credit, I would say you would have a decent chance of being approved. If you are interested in how you can apply, there are two ways. One way is by visiting Sports Authority’s website and following their instructions about applying. You could also visit the store and ask for assistance.
