Re: US Bank CC approval process?

Hotrodcrazy, did you apply for the premier line at the same time you applied for the CC? They are definitely two different animals. The credit criteria is a bit lower to get the permier line, from what I have heard from the bank tellers. However, I'd say it sounds like you got yourself a big fat approval! At least I sure hope so. If you'd still like to check your approval status through that automated number, here it is: 1-800-360-2900
Oh I forgot to add, even though I went through the automated response, that phone number is still a 9-5 M-F type of line. Kinda strange, but so is their website for pre-approval!
Hi Mizu, Yes I applied for the line of credit and the cc at the same time. Since I burned an inquiry I thought why not go for it.
Final update: Logged onto my online banking and there it was, showing a cc in the amount of $12,000 added to my accts. So, in less than 48 hrs and on one phone call US Bank gave me a total of $27,000 of new credit. I still can't believe it since I have had so much trouble getting any credit due to the fact that I have paid in cash for the past 12 yrs or so. Needless to say I am extremely happy and glad I made the attempt. US Bank has been good to me. I sure hope this will help my overall score. I thank everyone for their help and advice.
