Are cards ever approved on Sundays

My brother applied for a BofA card and was given the 30 day message.  I know that's usualy doom and gloom (though in my experience I've only ever gotten the 7-10 day message.)  Anyway, I was wondering after talking to him if it simply happened because It was a Sunday.  I know most recon places are closed on Sundays, but not sure if that was relevant.  I konw nothing about BofA or the 30 day message so I can't provide much guidance, but was just curious about the weekend thing.

Yes, cc's are approved on Sundays, holidays after hours etc. the 30 day message can be a verification check or requires further processing. Have your DB call tomorrow if they are closed today.

Re: Are cards ever approved on Sundays

Thats a great question.... I've often pondered it myself as I have only ever been given the wretched 7-10day message on a Sunday. As a rule I won't app again on a Sunday, soley because waiting another day for recon or verifification can be quite painful. Good luck to DB!

Gotcha...thanks for the info!

 

In your experience, is the 30-day message any different than the 7-10 message?  Or do different banks just do different things and the days are arbitrary.  I know when I got my first Chase and Citi card, I had to recon with both after getting the 7-10 message.

Of course they are, it's just a credit check done by a computer. They don't get weekends off.

Because I have a FA on my CR's I always get a pending further review message. Tbh, they have varied from 7-10, 30 -think that was Chase, or just pending further review with a reference number.

Exactly.  The "conveyor belt" of credit applications is a 24/7 process unless the system is unavailable due to system maintenance or you're dealing with a smaller community bank or certain CUs in which case the application is simply in queue for manual review on the next business day.

90% of my approvals were on Sundays!  Unfortunately PenFed denied me today, which happens to be a Sunday Smiley Sad

Pretty sure I was approved by Barclay's on a Sunday.
