Credit Card Center Advertiser Disclosure†

So, back in early September, I app'ed for US Bank Platinum - not knowing tjhey didn't approve applicants outside of their "geographic area" for this card. I called and asked about my app; they said it was auto denied with no credit pull.
Well, as I posted previously, they pulled my credit anyway, even though I was told three times that it was just flat out auto denied with no pull due to my location. I asked them to make sure the application was CANCELED. What else would I get if I didn't get the US Bank Platinum? That's the only US Bank product I wanted.
A day later, I got a hard inq on Experian- took me a couple weeks to get that removed, but US Bank admitted their mistake and had it removed ultimately. I had to push the envelope a little and get Experian to remove it earlier than the 6-8 weeks US Bank committed to.
WELL, now I check my Exp report today, and I have a new $1,000 credit limit card account from US Bank.
WTH!?!? It is reported as closed already, which is odd.
US Bank is rediculous. I'm still baffled how I could even get a card I was told time after time after TIME I simply did not qualify for due to my location.
This new tradeline lowered my aaoa to 3.1 years v the 3.2 years it was. :-( sad! lol
Needless to say, I've already disputed the tradeline, and hope it gets removed appropriately. They are just blowing my mind!!

Now THAT is hilarious. If there was an error on their end (since they allegedly informed you the product was not available in your area to apply) then I'm sure they can remove the TL. US Bank can be quirky sometimes.

I told them if I couldn't get US Bank Platinum, I didn't want any US Bank card. They even asked me about the Travel card, and I said no lol.
LOL@lexie.... I would be calling them AGAIN for a recon to get a higher limit.
a thousand dollars.
You kiddin' me USBank? Looks like I did well by choosing BOA.
I'm glad I wasn't eligible for the Platinum. Too bad I'm having to fight all these lovely additions to my ever-expanding CR. hhaha
