Denied Target Red Card :(

Hey guys first time poster here, and currently rebuilding my credit.  I recently applied for a Target Red Card online, received the 7-10 day message, and now just received a letter at my house indicating that I was denied because they were unable to verify my phone number, and the number that I provided was a cell phone number.  Anyone else ever get this type of response?  Any success in getting them to reconsider?

Call them. Mobile telephone numbers cannot be confirmed.

Call them quickly.  There's a window (I can't remember how long) and then they won't be able to do anything and you'd have to apply again.

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!  Smiley Happy
 
So after calling Target several times and talking to a couple of different people, I finally got some one on the phone that could help me.  You guys were right!  They just asked me a couple of verification questions, and told me that I was approved and should be receiving my card in 7-10 days.  Whoo-hoo!  Thanks again!

Re: Denied Target Red Card :(

Good for you, ProgressiveHouse. But a word of advice, watch out for that red card. Their APRs are usually pretty high, and they're kind of stingy with their CL's. Yours will probably start off at $200 and a few months later be raised to $500. Keep that util ratio down (it is EASY to go bookoo bananas in Target. I mean, they literally have EVERYTHING... lol.)
 
Congrats!
