Re: To receive the card is from 7-10 days but

Smiley Happy  Thank you. These are my first EVER CC's. But, I'm cleaning up the husbands credit so we can both apply together on the home loan we hope to get next year around this time, and I'm having to clean his DUE TO CC"S! So, I'll handle mine with lots of care, lol.

Not laughing at all. 

WM is GREAT because of the free monthly FICO plus it will grow nicely as long as you treat it well and I have nothing but good things to say about Cap1 considering it's because of their secured card that I'm in the position I am right now. Without my first Cap1 card I'd still be living on cash instead of well into my rebuild.

Re: To receive the card is from 7-10 days but

My Capital One Card took about three weeks to show up. (ETA: It was a secured card...maybe the regular ones don't take as long.)

 

As did my CreditOne card...I applied on the 6th of August and didn't get it till the beginning of September.

 

Out of my rebuilders...the First Savings and Show cards came the quickest...in a week. (ETA: Oh yeah, HSBC/Household card came in a week as well)

Scores 5/15/2016 (clean reports!): TU Walmart FICO: 696 | EQ FICO: 679 | EX AMEX FICO: 680

In my new wallet: American Express Green EMV: PSL $2000 | BankAmericard Cash Rewards Visa EMV: $2500 | Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World MasterCard: $6400 | Barclaycard Arrival World MasterCard: $1000 | Discover IT: $2500 | Amazon Rewards Visa Signature: $1500 | Chase Freedom: $1500 | Capital One QuicksilverOne MasterCard: $2100 | Target: $2800 | J.Crew $21,550 | Marvel (Captain America) MasterCard: $6000

Re: To receive the card is from 7-10 days but

It depends. I got my USAA card in like 5 days, including a weekend. Walmart store card was about a week. My Amex took about two weeks, and my US Bank Visa took the longest I think, nearly three weeks.

Scores:
07/29/12: EX FICO (Amex) 684 | EQ MyFICO 631 | TU Walmart 695
Current: EX FICO (MyFICO) 733 | EQ (MyFICO) 683 | TU (Walmart) 745

First Goal: 700+ across the board - Got it on EX & TU!!!
