EQ has to be thawed for the pre-qual and app?

Yes. Creditors can’t pull your credit, SP or otherwise, if they don’t have existing business with you and your credit is frozen.

Re: Anyone get declined for BBT after being prequalified??

They closed my card due to non use and was a tiny limit. I did the pre-qual and decided to try again and this time they approved for 4500 dollars. Small compared to my other limits however I still had 50k reporting in credit card debt with a UTI of 14%. I have since paid off 25k and waiting for it to be reflected on my reports. 

 

I think their pre-qual is pretty solid.

Re: Anyone get declined for BBT after being prequalified??

I was pre-qualified for all three as well and went for the Cash Rewards. Was not declined, just got a message that they weren't able to continue my application at this time and to apply at a branch. No idea what that means.

Re: My BB&T train is stuck....

UPDATE

 

I called the 800-226-5228, pressed option 4 and waited about 10 minutes for a CSR. CSR then tells me I need to contact the "new accounts dept" at 800-575-4647 and transfers me to that dept.

 

After waiting another 10 minutes or so a new accounts dept CSR answers the phone and I proceed to explain that I am getting prequalifed but the system is not letting me proceed online. CSR puts me on hold, researches it for a few minutes only to come back on the line to say she has no idea on what is happening nor has a solution so I thanked her for her time and moved on with my day.

 

At this point it is just not worth the time to pursue this any further so I will be taking an Uber instead of this train.

Its the MyFico train running them down. Remember lurkers follow what we do also. Forum basically crashed Blisplay when it came out.





My posts are JMHO. My siggy is not to brag at all. Just sharing my experiences after learning here from rebuild to recovery after BK DC @ 540's. And to show fellow members what can be accomplished when you do it right and play the FICO Credit Game.

Re: Anyone get declined for BBT after being prequalified??

The nearest branch is 35 miles from me, but is in a neighboring state, so I guess that's possible. Do we know what their service area is?

Re: My BB&T train is stuck....

I was approved for $6500. Anyone call and ask for a higher limit after getting the card? I was just approved for a USAA card with a $10000 limit.
