I recently applied for the Nationwide Visa card (Nov. 30). On Thursday (Dec. 10), I called and the CSR said they had mailed a letter requesting address verification. She was very friendly and gave me a fax number to send the documentation (phone bill). She also said to call back on Monday to see if I'm approved so it sounds pretty good to me. But, has anyone been declined after they request address verification?
They pulled TU and it was 728 on Nov. 30. Four inquiries within 12 mo. (all for CLI's). All accounts paid as agreed, no lates or collections. Utilization 12%.
I'm as nervous as a cat in a room full of rockers. I'd really like to have this card.
Guess I just need a hug . . .

Awwww Thanks, I feel much better now.
So, no one has been denied after they requested address verification?

Thanks Frugal. I had looked at the Natiowide thread but didn't read all 22 pages before posting this question. I'm quite sure the answer was in there somewhere but was hoping for a quick response from someone like you.

Has anyone applied for a nationwide business card? I want to know if they report balances to the personal report. Any help would be amazing
You could probably just ask their csr. They're very helpful.

What's your AAoA??? So far, everything else looks like you're golden! When did you apply? They had my answer in about a week...incl. the weekend!!
AAoA is 1yr. 8 mo. Oldest acct. is 10 yrs. 8 mo.
I applied on Nov. 30. Contacted them on the 10th and they needed address verification which I faxed immediately. Contacted them yesterday (12/14) and the Credit dept. said they did not receive my fax so I faxed it again. Supposed to have answer today. I guess I'll start bugging them every day until they either approve or deny. I got the impression they are super busy. Not the best CS but once I'm in maybe it will improve.
I'll keep you posted.

Not to thread-jack, but if you guys have the phone # to check status, could you repost? I know it is buried somewhere in that 3 million page original $17.5k Nationwide thread, but I am lazy (and "working") so if you have it handy, I'll give you a cookie
