Woman checks her credit card application status on her phone

Complete list of credit card application status phone numbers

Information verified correct on April 26th, 2017

It can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few weeks to learn if you’ve been approved or declined for a credit card. Most companies have a dedicated phone line, email address or web form so you can check up on your status.

When applying for a new card, providers will determine your eligibility based on your credit history. “Credit history” is intentionally vague – there are lots of components credit card companies will assess, among them:

  • The age of credit history — or how long you’ve had your current credit cards.
  • How many credit applications you’ve recently submitted.
  • Your payment history, including late and on-time payments, collection actions and judgments against you.
  • Credit utilization — or the ratio of balances you owe versus your limit on each card.
  • How many installment loans, auto loans, credit cards, mortgages and other types of credit you have.

Providers are looking at these factors, plus your other outstanding debts, to determine whether or not you are a good candidate or too risky to take on a new card.

Rejected and not sure why? Many providers’ customer service departments will be honest about why you were not accepted for a new card. Give them a call to find out why, and then work on rebuilding your credit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I be 100% sure I will be approved before applying?

No, at the end of the day the party making this call is the credit issuer; they decide if they want to lend you money or not. If you want to get even more assurance after reading everything about the card, you can call the credit issuer and they may be able to assess your eligibility.

If I haven’t heard back from the issuer, was my application denied?

Not necessarily. Processing the application can take 3 to 14 days, sometimes even 3 weeks. if you are applying online and don’t get accepted right away, it might mean that they need to verify for your information first.

Can I be denied for a secured credit card?

While secured credit cards do approve many applicants with bad or no credit history, there are some consumers who may get denied for a secured credit card. For example, if you’ve had a recent bankruptcy discharge or you don’t have enough income to repay a credit card balance, you can be denied for a secured credit card.If you’re denied, the credit card issuer will send a letter telling you the reasons you were denied. You can use this information to apply for your next credit card.
