Mercedes Benz Financial Services Approval

Mercedes Benz Financial Services Approval

I applied to Mercedes Benz Financial Services last night and immediately had an alert that my TransUnion was hard pulled.  I woke up this morning to an email stating. "Congratulations! Your request for a purchase on a Mercedes-Benz GLA250W has been preapproved by Mercedes-Benz Financial Services Your pre-approval has been forwarded to : ".    This morning I also received a phone call from the finance manager at my local MB dealership.  I asked him if it was approved through MBFS and he said yes.  I knew it was but just wanted to make sure they weren't going to pull some finance switcheroo stuff.

 

Woohoo!  

 

My TU Fico 8 was 642 at the time of the HP.

Did you apply from home? Usually auto approvals are made straightaway.
