Was I just approved for a Ralphs/Kroger MasterCard?!

[ Edited ]

I applied for a Ralph's MC and I'm not sure if I was approved or not. After I submitted the application, I got this:

 

Acceptance Certificate Complete

What is an acceptance certificate?? Does this sound like an approval or just a kind way of saying I'm denied?

Sounds like neither... I'd give it a couple days and call that number to find out what their decision is.

I would wait. I get those "you have been invited to apply" invites as well with my reward card at Ralphs. I am holding off on that because a hard inq is simply not worth it. The inquiries themselves make money. So I won't apply until I am good and ready. BTW- What bureau did they pull?
