7-10 day message usually means a decline?

So i applied for a Visa through my bank on their website and i got the 7-10 message does that usually mean i was declined? Or have people been approved after the 7-10 period?

Welcome to the forum.   As creditwherecreditisdue always says...recon.   A 7-10 days  message doesn't mean decline. There may be a few things the computer picked that needs a closer look.

Should i wait the 7-10 days for the letter before calling? Not sure why i wouldnt be approved.

 

 

I have good credit 700+ last time i checked. I already have a Discover More card with a 9500 CL, AmEx Gold and Chase Freedom with 5000 CL. Only balance i have is is on the Discover for 300 that will be PIF when the statement drops. No lates and no baddies.

You haven't let us know what product you applied for. Regardless it is OK to call.

I know its hard but I would wait until I received a letter from them.  Can you post which bank you are dealing with so members here who have delt with them can help advise.  Sounds stupid but I might have a friend call your bank and ask them about their policy and how long it takes for an answer and if they offer instant approval.  These days, CCCs sdont need much of a reason to deny credit so I would be stealthy.

Chase often gives the 7-10 day bit and then approves. Yes, I know some have gotten instant, but many more of us had to do the limbo thing.

Wait for the letter.  No need to call without a decision being made yet.

Not to be a downer, but out of all the times Ive gotten the "7-10 day message," I've only been approved once.

Re: 7-10 day message usually means a decline?

I received a 7-10 day response when I applied for both my Discover Motiva (recently changed to More) and Chase Slate (each of these apps were in the past month).  I called immediately after receiving the 7-10 day response, and both times the rep said that there had been a decision on the application. 

Both times were initially denied. 

Both times I asked for a recon, gave additional information on why I wanted the card, explained old derogs (3+ years old) and

Both granted limits of $1500.

 

They were each concerned about the amount of recent inquiries....my excuse was that I had cards with other companies, and they just jacked my interest rates even after great usage and payment history - so I've shopped around for new CC lenders.  Seemed to have worked.:smileywink:

 

Of course YMMV though
