tknoxjr's review: Callout Comment I applied for this card in Dec 07 and was declined, so I applied 2 weeks ago online and got this message:
We Need More Time

Thank you for applying for the Philadelphia Eagles Extra Points™ MasterCard® credit card from Bank of America.

Although we can normally provide credit decisions right away, we'll need a little more time to verify some of the information you provided us.

Within a few days, we'll send you an email informing you that a decision has been made on your application. You can sign in to retrieve this decision at the following address, using information you provided on your application:


We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you, and will be sure to contact you soon

I tried calling them and said that it is still under review 2 weeks later, has anyone had this message before and does it mean I was denied.

Remarks BOA cards are done thru FIA card service they have closed down on credit and credit lines. You may be asked to send in a pay stub to check income or other information. They leave you all the rope in the world to hang your self. Call and ask to speak to a credit advisor they can tell you what they need. Good luck

Remarks Usually when they give you that message it doesn't mean your denied or approved. We actually have a credit department that looks into your reports and makes a fair decision based on that... Alot of times they may need to contact you and ask about a possible negative in your credit or something. Then they will approve or decline a card... Pretty much what Sethco said- your on the ropes... Call customer service and they will be able to pull the app via a SS# and zipcode. Hope this helps.

Remarks You received this message because the computer couldn't make a decision for you. I feel that this is better because instead of the computer instantly denying you, you get a better chance with the people who are looking at your report. They might give you a small CL but you ask for increases along the way as you build your reputation with them.

I wouldn't take it as a denial, but in case they do deny you, I'd call in and ask for reconsideration.
