Yep only store cards

 

let you sign up at the register

 

and checkout immediately.

 

Never happens with regular CCs.

Well now

 

That's not true

 

Many co-branded cards

 

Like airline and hotel cards

 

Will let you use at least part

 

Of your limit

 

To book tickets or hotels with them

 

The same way a store

 

Will let you make purchases

 

In their store

 

With your new card.

 

:)

The OP's question was whether one would need better credit to get a card that allows immediate use versus one that has to be received in the mail before it can be used, and the answer is no. The requirements are about the same. Among "immediate use" cards, there are a large variety in the market across a range of qualification requirements, similar to cards without immediate use potential.

No, that wasn't the question.

I recently apped for an Ebates card, was instantly approved for 1k (which is apparently a standard for Ebates), and the score at the time was 754.

 

That's my only experience with immediate use cards. 754 TU.

That was the initial limit I got too for immediate use on the website and then when checking my CRs, the actual limit on the card turned out to be 5k.

Yup. Here's the 411 from my approval: http://creditboards.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=523039&p=5084814
