You can check your Credit One application status online, by visiting the application status page on Credit One’s website and entering both your last name and Social Security Number. Credit One will then find your credit card application in its records and tell you whether it is approved, denied or still pending.

It can take up to 21 days to receive your final Credit One application status: approved or denied. Credit One credit cards are available to people with bad credit, but that doesn’t mean everyone gets approved. It all comes down to what Credit One makes of your credit history and income. If they think the risk of you not paying your bill is too high, you won’t be approved.
It usually takes about 10 business days to get a Credit One credit card once you’ve been approved. Make sure to activate your card quickly after you receive it, as Credit One may automatically close your account for security reasons if the card is not activated within 14 days of being received.… read full answer

Impact of a Credit One Credit Limit Increase on Your Credit Score
When you request a Credit One credit limit increase, Credit One will conduct a hard pull of your credit report, which will cause a short-term dip in your credit score. Credit One cannot do a hard pull without your permission, though.
On the other hand, there are times when you could be eligible for a Credit One credit limit increase without even requesting one. Credit One may offer an automatic credit limit increase if its regular reviews of your account show a history of on-time payments and low debt. An automatic credit limit increase involves a soft pull, which does not affect your credit score.
