You can call in and ask aboutyour recent application, I don't think this will be any problem.  Whether they provide you the information you want is another thing.  Sometimes you get "approved" but the limit is decided after the approval....meaning, yes you get a card, but the reason nothing was stated and the 10 days is that your account will be issued a limit after approval and then you are notified of limit with the card.

A large Nordstrom CL would probably scare other lenders, especially prime banks at this point in your credit. 

 

Congrats on the new account and good luck!

Tray -

 

How many accounts do you currently have? How old is your newest account? How many inquiries did you have on EQ?

Hi thebostonredsox, I have 5 open accounts with some closed payed as agreed accounts, only my EQ report was pulled which cost me a 7 point score drop 685 to 678 now hopefully no more.  My newest account was in Oct of 08 with B&N mastercard Barclays and I had 2 inquiries  last one being in May of 08.  Further, I have 4 accounts just opened within last year of 08.
