Re: Drunk Apping...

That is how I got my Amex.  And I applied over the phone.

"drapping"... that's great. I didn't know there was already a term for it. Or did you just make it up?

Drapping is an often mentioned topic here on Myfico.  Yes, I am guilty of it!

Re: Drunk Apping...

I laughed so hard when I seen this thread. I don't think apping for credit would be on my priority list after a night of drinking but to each there own :smileylol:

That must have been funny to hear. 


My roommate tried to report his Citi card lost (emphasis on tried) on speakerphone one night after we got home from drinking, it was hilarious. Probably more hilarious because we were both smashed, but still. He started flirting with the CSR and asking for her number and she just kept giving him Citi's 1-800 number :smileylol: Good times.

It's not apping AFTER a night of drinking, it's apping WHILE drinking.  :smileyvery-happy:
