That, or they need some paperwork or they are going to offer you a secured card with a $ deposit, or you have fraud alert on your credit report. Smiley Sad

Re: when they say they need more time processing...that usual...

I currently have a Chase MC and had applied on-line for a Chase Disney Visa due to an up-and-coming trip.  I was given the 'we need additional time to process... and will get back to you' message on-line.  Low-and-behold I received a call at work 2 weeks ago from Chase regarding my request.  A very nice lady verified my info, asked about my income, went over my current outstanding debt and asked what my plan was to take care of them and then said she would approve me for a card and to expect it in 7-10 days... cards arrived yesterday with a $2K CL, 0% for 6 months, no fees... I had expected to receive the customary rejection letter but was pleasantly surprised Smiley Surprised

I applied for a Discover card Monday night and got that message. I got a call from Discover last night. They wanted to know if I had a mortgage (I don't), if I had a cell phone (I do and she wanted to call me at my cell phone to verify, strange), if I was a legal resident or citizen (legal resident) then she approved me for $4000 limit with 0% interest for 12 months.

 What were your scores for the Discover Card, any baddies on your CR's?

No baddies and my Equifax score was 699 before I submitted the app. then I got an alert from myFICO that I've been seeking new credit and got bumped to 703. I don't know what my other scores are.

Alright thanks,  I'm only lower 600's right now... But I am interested in a Discover Card... Looks like I'll be waiting a little while getting some more things in order before I apply for one.
