Proof of Income for the Cap 1 Journeys CC - Need Advice

Currently have a WF secured 500 ( since 11/12) with a 2% util. Always paid on time and hoping to graduate to unsecured in 04/2013.

 

Scores before applying for my Walmart card were myFICO TU 681, myFICO EQ 661 - Approved for Walmart on 3/8/13 @ 300 and called the backdoor # and got CLI to 500.

 

I also applied for the Cap1 Journey and got the 7-10 day message. I called the backdoor and the Rep said that I should be getting a letter so that I can send my proof of income. I mentioned that I'm a full time student and I do receive funds from my parents ( from outside the US) but I can send bank statements showing deposits and he said that, its ok to send statements. 

 

My question is, can I be approved for the Journey card for being a full-time student but with deposits/funds of about $70,000 a year? 

 

Thanks in advance!

Yes you can. It won't be a problem as long as you can show a steady pattern of deposits entering your account on a monthly/quarterly/yearly basis. it doesnt have to be depositted on that very exact day or month, just need to show there's a pattern of your parents wiring you money that is sufficient to cover all your expenses in that given period of time.

$70k allowance from your parents as a student. holy smokes! unless you go to some expensive private school you should be swimming in spare cash.

 

yes, your deposits on your statements should be fine for income verification.
