Dont loose your sleep with FBNO. They are very conservative and approve every thing manually. It could take 2-4 weeks before you hear from them.

btw, my husband is such a shameless application-whore that before I was finished with this post or finished registering for online access, he had already applied, spoken with them on the phone to verify some things, was put on hold, and told he'll hear from them in the mail.  No instant approval for him.  If there's a sub-dungeon, he belongs in it.  He's got a real problem.  Smiley Indifferent



Congrats, you say real score, but wwith those ranges, are you sure thats a real score?

It's not a VS. They go from 501-990.

Oh yeah, you're right.  I got so excited I didn't even pay attention to that.  Oh well, whatever the hell...  And if the range goes up to 900, then a 704 is that much better, right?  Oh, wait - but the low point is 250. (Clearly I hardly care now, I'm so glad to get in with this prime bank and get that much more room I can BT some debt to for 21 long months.  Smiley Happy  )

 

Now I'm getting curious, though... I wonder what scoring model they used.

That is a valid range of a certain version of EX. Here are some older threads talking about a PFICO score.

Thanks, MarineVietVet!  Sorry to everyone for my coarse language.  I should get a grip.  I'm just so happy that I feel like I won money or something!  (Actually, I did - because I'm in the process of paying off debt, and every balance I can transfer to 0% means money I don't pay every month in interest.)

OK, I'm putting on my gardener's gloves now, for sure.  Why wouldn't I?  I can now move ALL my debt to 0%.  I think I'll need a tranquilizer or something.  I can't even believe this. Anyone who's struggling to just get any credit at all, or to break out of bottom-tier credit land - don't be jealous, I've been there, and for a long, frustrating time.  I once could only get Sam's Club to give me a $300 CL and I also sported a First Bank of Marin (anyone remember that one?) in my wallet.  And Household Bank for a few hundred dollars.  Orchard for $300 - you get the picture.  And if you knew how much interest I've paid to high balances on terrilble cards over the last 5 years (it makes me sick to know it's been that long that I've been climbing out of this mess), you'd be sick too.

Re: Is anyone else being driven crazy waiting? Check in here

I am glad that I found this thread - I realize that it is older, however - I am going stir crazy - I cannot wait until I "just might" be able to qualify for "prime" cards again.  I was in the garden before I even knew that there was a garden.  Would love to know if could be approved, to scared to even app for fear of denial and what it would do to my current scores, which seem to inch up a tad every few months or so....it is just the waiting, not knowing, that gets to me.  This forum has been so helpful since I started reading.  I must admit, I think that I have become addicted to this site.  Everyone's posts, it seems, are helpful in one way or another. 

 

But...for now, I guess back into that garden till at least November, which then, I might try my luck again with Wal-Mart - also thought about the Speedway Card since most of my gas is purchased there and with the right card from them I could earn extra "speedy" points - cashed them in once for the $50 Applebees card - nice way to go out for fee.
