All major credit card companies allow applicants to check their status by calling the main customer service line and following the prompts. Most major issuers – including American Express, Bank of America and Citibank – also offer a way to check your credit card application status online.
How to Check Your Credit Card Application Status with Major Issuers:
Whether you’re trying to check your application status online or over the phone, it can be stressful dealing with a pending credit card decision. Rest assured that even if you are eventually denied, you still have plenty of options.
Approval criteria for credit cards differ from one issuer to the next, and even from card to card with the same issuer. So if you’re denied for one card, it doesn’t mean you can’t be approved for another. For more information, check out this guide on what to do if your credit card application is denied.
