thought this was odd..

i got an old navy card about almost 2 months ago..so last night i decided to get a gap card or so i thought..i got a 7-10 day msg about it...
 
i thought that if you had one it would be just as easy to get the other..but i guess not..
 
anyone else had this experience?

Re: thought this was odd..

The inquiry and new card could have dropped your credit scores which could result in being declined..   or maybe the fact that they are all virtually the same card?  I have a Gap card and it works at Old Navy, Banana Republic, and Piperlime.

Re: thought this was odd..

Several of us have been writing about this for weeks.  If you apply for a GEMB card and get the 7-10 day message, CALL THEM!  There is an identity verification glitch in their system!  I had the problem weeks ago... I had to call.. and for every card for which I applied and got the message (and one actual denial) it was clarrified over the phone and I was approved for the card!
*Note to self* Remember why and for how long you had to rebuild in the first place! One Day at a Time, One Day at a Time!

I applied in store for a card and was denied. I got a letter a few days later saying they were unable to verify my identity. When i called the csr said they couldn't verify my phone #. Told that i could reapply with a different #. Called today and the csr was able to verify through my other GEMB account. Told me that it wasn't a problem that he would need to do another credit app, and everything was fine.
