You have to go into the store to apply now which is a pain and it was not instant, but they called me at my business number a couple hours later and said they would approve for what I asked for.

About a year ago, I applied online got approval. You could have searched for the link online. Congrats on your approval. Be cautious with HSBC backed cards. They seem to close the accounts if you apply very quickly for several cards with them.

NO PG, I will only PG real credit cards, not store cards...
Actually a year ago, I did apply online and was instantly approved for 3k, couple weeks later with card in hand went to store and shopped and was declined at register, HSBC Closed the account, "there was an error that your account was even opened". I think because my company was not 3 years old.
I don't need the card at all but felt what the heck, I'm over 3 years now, and I don't think the online application is an option anymore, but figured since I got the Costco card, surely I could get this card, and I did!
so I thanked them by spending $300 and that will probably be it!
