Application pending?

I just got an e-mail back from First Bank Card. There is a place to check the status of an application. I did that and it says it's "pending" not shot down just "pending" so can I assume that this is good or bad?

At this point, you aren't automatically denied.  I would take that as a good sign Smiley Happy

 

Good luck man!

Re: Application pending?

Probably pending a manual review and/or verification.  They did that to me.  They sent me a letter asking for my DL and paystub.  I threw it away.  Wasted a HP Smiley Sad

Ummm sounds like you were approved, why didn't you send them the requested information?

They just wanted to verify identity and / or employment...  don't see why this had to result in a wasted HP, its just due diligence.....   If you still want the card, call them and ask if you can fax them the info.

Re: Application pending?

Yeah, I didn't want it after the fact.  Shouldn't have apped for it.  I wasn't as savvy a few months ago.  Had the same thing happen with Discover.  They kept calling me and I straight up told them to stop calling and I'm not interested anymore.  Didn't realize until I started with this forum that all they wanted was verification.  Oh well.  Lesson learned.

That's too bad, Discover is a good company to do business with.  At least they attempted to follow up instead of straight up declining and not caring

Re: Application pending?

I have applied for 6 CCs recently. Four out of six said that it was pending review and I had to call. They usually just wanted to verify information like address, employment, etc. It seems to be common practice and not indicative at all of them turning you down.
