Credit card rejection

Is it possible to be rejected for a credit card, and within thirty days of that rejection have positive info reported to your credit report.. And actually receive the card anyway? Or would another application have to be submitted to obtain the card?

Re: Credit card rejection

I have never heard of something like this happening. It is possible that they keep the application and such on file and review it on their own. You can ring the lender and ask for a reconsideration yourself and you may get one without another credit check. You could also ring them when the new information updates and just ask them to refresh the report they have on file, but that would be no different from a new application.

Yes, buts YMMV. Its called recon. Some CCC like Chase keep your application and report on file for 30 days and you 30 days to recon. They ask you if they would pull another report. But like I said YMMV, all lenders are different

Re: Credit card rejection

It happened to me. I applied for the Chase Freedom and was denied. I did a recon and was approved but as the recon was still in process of being reviewed, I received a denial letter for the card even though I ultimately got it. It was nerve racking!
