Difference between WaMu Visa vs. MC???

I rec'd my Wamu Vs in January with 3000 cl, 0% BT until 04/09, and 7.99% apr after that.
 
I was denied for a Wamu MC though they did not even pull a report due to an old Providian account that I had with them a few years back.  It had a few 30 day lates, as well as being closed with a balance.  After closing, the payments were made on time every time.
 
Are they serviced by different departments or something? 
 
I've thought about a recon letter, but decided against it because maybe it was a snafoo on my visa, though it was by a preapproval in the  mail. 
 
I app'd for the mc after checking the preapproval link that was posted here.  I don't need another credit card as I'm just a hop, skip and a jump from the sleigh center!!
 
Any thoughts?

Re: Difference between WaMu Visa vs. MC???

You're not alone on this one... I got my wamu with a pre-approval that came in the mail. I recently tried to get a Mastercard and they system said cannot process. I checked my reports and they never pulled a hard inquiry on my credit. I've never had any previous accounts of charge offs and at the time I app'd my score was like 645, higher than when I got the visa. So yeah I'm wondering is their a difference in the two cards as far as tiers are concerned...
