Bet You Didn’t Know: Online Credit Card Application Status For All Banks

By Julian, author of Devil’s Advocate

 

I applied for some new credit cards this week and was surprised that I couldn’t find an up-to-date list of all the links that allow you to check online for your credit card application status. There’s plenty of websites with bank reconsideration phone numbers, but the most recent list of application status webpages I found was last updated more than 2 years ago.

I actually think it’s extremely useful to have the official status of my application in hand (whether it’s technically pending or already denied) before calling reconsideration. Also, sometimes the issue may be something simple (such as Discover requesting documents to verify ID) which can show up on the application status check. And there are even times when you’re better off not calling reconsideration and just letting the application process play out by itself.

So I’ve put together a complete list of both phone numbers and online credit card application status links for every major bank. This is a resource I’ll maintain for the long term, so bookmark it now and you’ll have it for future use anytime you’re applying for new cards.

All the below phone numbers and websites are purely automated and will only give you the status of your application. If you want to try and push a pending or denied application forward, you’ll want to call the bank’s reconsideration line and talk to an agent personally.

this is useful, but you should also add the credit analyst/reconsideration phone numbers for each bank as well so that this page can be truly a one stop shop resource

I applied for the Citi Prestige last Friday and got a flat out rejection from the website. No application number… nothing.. Just that they could not approve me.

So I called the reconsideration line and the CSR on the phone just asked me what my app number was, I told him I didn’t have one, then he asked for my SSN and DOB. After 30 seconds he said, you are approved and will get the card in 7 business day, no asking for any additional information.. Just BAM! you are approved then hang up. Not a very friendly guy but I got the card so i can’t complain.

So even if you get rejected and don’t get an application number to check on the website, I’d still call the recon line.

I’ve tried the shopping cart trick with Virginia America twice in the last six weeks and never heard from them. Is the “trick” obsolete and, if not, do you have a number for the bank that issues the card?

In both cases, it is going to take time and as they say, “time is money. The success of a movie does not only depend on its formula or a director. Celeb gossip ireland I recently listened to an interview with Jackie Collins, the undisputed ‘Queen of Chick Lit’.

Persistently soaring ratings and positive feedback coming from reputable television critics speaks volumes of ongoing season’s charm. Xem online gossip girl season 4 Maybe something like, ” I
don’t understand but tell me more so that I can understand”, or “what do you suggest we can do about
that” or even, “if we do X Y or Z, would that help”. From our neighbors outside, our colleagues at work to the famous Hollywood stars, gossiping can be seen as another favorite pastime of everyone.
