US Bank Secured Credit Card

Has anyone else received this card yet my score is at 580-596 and the application status says still in process. The funds were withdrawn from my account last week so does that mean I am approved? Any information about this card or reviews will be much appreciated!

Re: US Bank Secured Credit Card

Hi welcome to the myfico forum! It sounds as though you are approved so congratulations! May I suggest that you call the backdoor number to find your application status?

The backdoor number for us bank can be found at

Best of luck to you! A secured card is an excellent way to rebuild credit. I suggest that you also check with a local bank or credit union about opening a secure loan... it will also help you build positive installment payment history!

Good luck!

Re: US Bank Secured Credit Card

I would say if the funds are withdrawn youre likely approved. I do believe that the US Bank card will unsecure after a year so hopefully somone can clairfy that.

Re: US Bank Secured Credit Card

When I was denied, US Bank didn't even cash the cashier check, they sent the original back to me separately from the denial letter. So I would assume also, that if they are withdrawing money, you were approved.
