Penfed strange app

So yesterday I bit the bullet and applied for the platinum rewards card and was denied. The only reason listed was pyramiding debt. I later realized I accidently put my annual income into the monthly wages box lol. Which would have put my salary at over half a million. So I woke up this morning and realized what the hell, I already took a hard pull and its good for 60 days, why not app again with the correct info. I applied and  got referred to loan officer for a 7500$ CL. So I just check the application status link and to my amazement it said approved! Does this really mean I was approved? Penfed is so strange. Thanks sorry for spelling errors I'm on my smartphone.

Re: Penfed strange app

It doesn't. It just says approved. Should I be concerned?

The denial letter from the previous day said 737 out of 950, so not a fico but take it how you will.  764 walmart TU FICO.  Oldest account 3 years, AAOA 1.5, highest CL at time of app 12.5K.  3 new accounts in the last 6 months and 7 inq in the last 2 years.
