I got a non-rewards Fifth Third card the very same way. Couldn't help myself. LOL I'm glad I have a little more self control nowadays.
I think we've all gotten a mailer and impulsively applied for something. Now I just throw out mailers. If there's a card I want, let's be honest: we're all on these sites often enough to know what's out there. So I don't need a mailer to tell me about it. If I wanted to app, I would. Can't let a mailer sway me.
Those who constantly "fall out of the garden" due to mailers/prequals they checked despite being in the garden/etc are the ones who never get anywhere.
