banana republic vents, 4 HPs!!!!

so i applied for the banana republic card last night, and whether i got approved or not, that would end my app spree for another year. anyhoo, got the 7-10 days msg, called this monrning to check status and to recon, a nice lady was telling me that it needs further verification bc there were mutliple applications submitted. she verified all my info, came back and said she removed 3 apps and sent one to CW to make a decision. i asked her if all 4 would resulted in 4 HPs on my report and she said yes and apologized bc their website experienced a glitch last night where the submit button would be pressed multiple times on its own. OMG!!!!! i would be very livid if i dont get approved, are you kidding me? 4 HPs for one crappy banana republic card? what can i do myfico friends?????

I would try and disputing it, it was their fault so you can't possibly lose. Call the credit bureau they pulled and ask to dispute.. That's if the CSR doesn't remove the 3 other inquires

Ask to speak to a supervisor or check the backdoor numbers stickies and call that. Because the multiple apps were not your fault they have to remove the ones that were placed in error.

Re: banana republic vents, 4 HPs!!!!

It's possible she is wrong in saying it would be 4 HP's. I had the same thing happen when I applied for Macy's. I was approved and very quickly received my card in the mail. The very next day after I received the card, I received 2 denials from Macy's in separate envelopes, both stating the time between applications was too short. Confused, I called in and spoke with a manager of some sort who said I got the letters because I applied 3 times in one day. I asked him whether he thought someone would ever apply 3 times in the same day for a card and he said no. I asked if that meant 3 HP's were done and he indicated that one HP was used for all 3. To be sure, I used one of the "denials" to get my free credit report ( :smileyvery-happy:) from the agency they pulled and he was right--just one HP.

:smileyvery-happy: I would ask them to remove the other 3 pulls, as it is not your fault, you technically did not authorize them.
