What’s Up With Fifth Third Bank and their Trio card?

A week or two ago, I got a note in the mai saying I was pre-approved for the Trio.  So I append online with my special pre-approval number and got a message thanking me for applying and saying I can complete balanced transfers once I receive my card.  It did not explicitly say I was approved or give me a SL but that sure sounds like an approval to me.  Yet I still haven't gotten a card or even so much as an e-mail from them. But I did get another pre-approval mailer like the one I apped from before.  What is going on...why would they send me another pre-approval notice whenI've already supposedly just been approved for that card.  Are they just slow?  Or is it possible my approval did NOT go through before?

Have you tried calling the customer service line?

Re: What’s Up With Fifth Third Bank and their Trio card?

Pre-approved offers are sourced from a third party so they won't know if you decided to apply with the first offer they sent you (or 2nd, 3rd, etc.).

They tend to process things a bit slowly so give things time. If you receive any correspondence that yields "the price you pay for credit" with a FICO score, then you were approved. The card follows shortly after.

Calling the CS agents won't do much since they won't release any information, unless it has to do with a verification request.

Just ignore the 2nd pre-approved mailer.

I got my "price you pay for credit" notice telling me my TransUnion credit score was 770.   I also got my card...I was approved for a $6,500 SL with a 17.49% APR.  So all turned out well.
