Southwest Approval :O

Hey there all, new here. Got the mailer with an invitation to apply (totally thought this meant pre-approval but lesson learned). I got the all the too familiar "we'll let you know in 30 days" so I just assumed my score wasn't quite there yet and it was  pretty much a no.  About a week later I get a letter in the mail asking me to call in to verify my application. New to me, but ok... Turns out there's a fraud alert on my Equifax report (that I didn't place) so they needed to make sure it was me.  I was approved for $2K, the Plus card with the 40K bonus points & $200 statement credit. I started rebuilding in February, so I'm pretty stokedSmiley Happy

All 3 of the Southwest cards are subject to 5/24, unfortunately.
