JCPenney credit card app

About a week ago, I applied for a JCP card and received the "7-10 day' mesage.  I still haven't received a letter or email with heir decision, nor have I received a card, but in my email today I received an email that says, "We're So Glad You're Here...." and goes on to talk about JCP Rewards, and "as a JCP credit cardmember..."  Does that mean I've been approved and I should be receiving my card within the next few days?

Re: JCPenney credit card app

Well it certainly sounds like it.  Why don't you just call credit services and ask them?

Re: JCPenney credit card app

It sounds as if your approved. I would wait patiently and see if you get the card. The card takes a while, what you could also do is call their Customer Service number at 800-542-0800 and ask them to see if they have an account under your SSN. Good luck.

 

FYI they usually pull EQ.

Re: JCPenney credit card app

Thanks everybody!  It appears that I may have been approved, but I'm not holding my breath until I have the card in my hand!  Although I have a Care Credit card with a $3K limit on it, it seems that when I went on my application marathon last week, I got turned down for the store cards that are issued by GE Capital Retail Money Bank, but got approved for the ones issued by Comenity (sp?)....  It's taken be a LONG time to even get where I am now, which is not even close to where I want to be... a few late  payments to SAllie Mae really messed up my credit (one payment covered 7 loans =7 dings to credit for each late payment.... :smileysad:  )

Re: JCPenney credit card app

Well, it was a "no go" on the JCPenney credit application.  I received my rejection letter yesterday in the mail.  The JCP Rewards that I am now a part of is something that anybody can be a part of; you basically sync up your debit or other credit card to JCPenney and they keep track of what you spend and issue rewards for every X amount of dollars spent.  According to GECRB, my credit score was only 442!!!!!!!  However, the score that I pulled directly from TransUnion was 611!  Not sure what's going on...
