Re: WaMu Approval Process - Any Feedback is Needed and Welcome

[ Edited ]

Hey all guess what ... I got approved. Whoooooooo Hoooooooooo.  Called today to the number I was given to check my status and it stated I was approved. Spoke to a representative who advised I was approved for $3800. I know most of you have much higher limits, but this is now the highest limit I have with a much better offer for 0% APR. Still in rebuilding mode so I am pretty psyched. Now if I have the same luck with my BofA CLI request :smileyhappy:

 

Edit to ask: Do all WaMu credit cards offer PFICO scores?

I received my bazillionith offer for the WaMu Platinum credit card 0% APR thru 2010 and 9.9% thereafter. I cracked and applied yesterday. I was also told it would take up to 3 weeks to get the status of the application. I asked do they have instant approvals and denials and I was advised no. I was also told I would have received the same waiting period if I apped online with the preapproval. The representative did advise I could callback within 3 days to check the status.

 

For those of you that have WaMu is this normal - waiting 3 weeks for a response? Please advise of your application experience. If you were told to wait, how long and were you approved or not approved? Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

TU 638 EQ 608 EX 631.  They did pull EX. I had a previous Providian account which I opened in 1998. Believe it was closed by Providian in 1991. WHen I pull TU my EX report shows closed due to inactivity, however when I pull from MyFico is shows closed by credit grantor. Its been so long ago I dont know the real reason it was closed :smileyhappy:

Thank you. Do you know if this card offers PFICO? I dont see it in the preapproval infomation. The card is the Visa Platinum - dont know if WaMu offers more than one CC product.

Yes, WaMu offers more than once CC product. I have the Visa Platinum and I do get the monthly PFICO score. It took 3 months though before I saw a score. I was approved in June so by the time I got the PFICO score, it was showing me my score from back then. I'm not sure why it is not mentioned on your pre-approval letter as it was mentioned in the trillion I had received from WaMu, but once you log into your account, you should see a section regarding your score (won't be any info right away so don't expect to see it for a few billing periods).

Congrats again!

Thank you. Call 800-356-0023 to check your status. My inquiry happened the same day I apped (spoke to a rep - did not use the getmycard link). Maybe your request didnt get completed. Good luck.

 

Edit to add: they pulled EX for me
