Care Credit vs. Care Credit PLUS

Yesterday, I applied for Care Credit, & received instant approval for 5K.

 

Today, I got 2 emails.  One said, Congratulations, you have been approved for Care Credit in the amount of 5K.  The second said, Sorry, you were not approved for Care Credit, but we are pleased to offer you Care Credit Plus in the amount of 2500.

 

Has anyone ever heard of this?  I'm not really sure what to do now, besides call them up & ask them why they said I was approved.  It's like they said, HA!  Just Kidding!  Sucker!  :smileysad:

Wow that stinks! I have been trying for about 3 years to get care credit and I know I would be severely dissappointed if I thought I had it and then they pulled that on me.

 

My stinkin dentist refuses to fix my teeth one at a time like a normal dentist. He wants to fix them all at once the "fancy" way so he can "make me look like a rockstar". Im like "DUDE, If I wanted to look like a rock star I would dye my hair pink and get tatoos." After all it would be cheaper than what he wants to charge me to fix my teeth.

 

I would just call and ask which email you were supposed to go by. Maybe they sent the $2500 first THEN the $5000 one.

 

Just trying to put a positive spin on it . :smileywink:

How long did it take for the accounts to hits your reports from the time u were approved?
Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.
