When Your Credit Card Application Is Not Accepted

Nick Makaryk
Jul 18, 2008
With the advancement of the years, the public has accepted the major change called the "credit card". It is truly a major change. Instead of stressing over carrying enough money to get what you want or need when shopping, your Visa or MasterCard can make sure you can have a great shopping experience. You can shop without leaving home on your computer. Applying for credit cards is becoming more commonplace. But every application that you fill out does not mean that you will get a credit card in the mail. Your application for a credit card may be denied. Let's see why a provider of a credit card application turn you down when they have put so much effort into courting new customers.

One of the main reasons for rejecting an application for a credit card is mistakes that you may have made when filling it out. Little mistakes, such as entering the wrong phone number, wrong name, or zip code can be made. There is no such thing as a perfect person so mistakes are bound to be made. If you forget to fill out all the spaces on your application, this can cause another problem. Missing information that is required will cause problems with your application. If your handwriting is atrocious, the person reviewing the application may have trouble reading your information. Errors could have been made by the person who was handling the form. It may not have been filed correctly or the information needed may not have been clearly explained. Sometimes new hires make a few mistakes until they are more seasoned to the system.

But not to worry, these small mistakes due to human error can be straightened out later. The main problem this would cause would be an interruption in the timely receipt of your credit card. The number one reason for an application for a credit card being rejected is poor credit, for example, negative items in the past. Your credit score may already have been set up if you have other credit cards in active status or if you have or have had a mortgage or loan. If payments are made on time and the minimum is being paid, a good credit score is likely. On the other hand, if payments are late, behind, or not paid this results in a bad credit score. This is determined by the major credit bureaus with information received from the credit card companies you have. When applying for a new credit card, your credit score is checked and if it is a negative rating, you are automatically rejected.

The rejection or acceptance of a credit card application is dependent upon these two major reasons. They must be monitored (the credit score in particular).
