In all of my time bouncing through business ventures, there is something that I learned along the way. When you see that your application for credit or a CLI online is "Pending"... It means declined.No exceptions.
I finally bit the bullet and submitted an invitation code from the mail for Discover It, and when I was done, the screen just shut down and reverted back to the home screen for applications. I called. The rep found my app and said that I will receive a decision in the mail within 7 days, or I could check the status online in 72 hours. I replied: "Oh. So I've been declined." She said "No sir, I did not say that". To which I informed her that if I was not shown the happy screen of Congrats following hitting the submit button...that it means I have been declined. The rest is just bull**bleep**. You're either approved, or you are not. The only mail I will be getting from Discover next week, is the lame explanation for declining me. Which brings me to my point? Why send me shiny envelopes for years, and then when I finally succumb, I'm not approved? I don't get it. All my scores are VG to Exc and no baddies. I'm pissed because of the hard pull now, for no reason.
Did you go to their prequalification site to see if you were pre approved for their It card beforehand?
Thank you for the insight! 😀
I did indeed. I qualified for two in the capacity of which I was looking. Chrome and Discover It...pick your own color.
Could be verification.
Hold tight and dont just write it off just yet..
