Re: Anyone app'd with WAMU lately?

If they sent you one they will send you another pre-approval. They courted me for months before I actually gave in.
If at first you don't succeed... hang up and try again!!

Re: Anyone app'd with WAMU lately?

Thanks for the clarification, Brammy.
I would really like to purchase a new Millineum Falcon with my WAMU (oops Chase card)!!!! But first I need a decent credit limit.

Okay that answers my quest.  I think WaMu may be cutting back on new apps.  You can go to PetSmart.com and get a WaMu card there but its tiedto PetSmart.  that being said, they may only be solliciting current cardholders aside from the inivte only cards they are sending out.  Either that or they had not offers.  Mine did go through and they soft pulled me.
 
Can't even app or the biz card unless you go through the back door.

Is this a coincidence or is it because I declined to app, that I just got notification immediately after closing the app that they are sending me convenience checks by mail...lol!

I read in the paper today that the WAMU is losing a lot of cash.  Alot.  Their mortgage division is almost, if not, kaput.

I wonder if I call and ask about it they will let me app? Worth a shot.

Re: Anyone app'd with WAMU lately?

I am pretty sure the effects of this will trickle down to their credit card division as well.  All I know is:  I need a cli soon to buy a new Millenium  Falcon.  Subprime mess or not.
