rockin35's review: I just applied online for this card about 5-6 days ago, right? So I called back on yesterday 04/07/08 to confirm that it was approved because I got the generic website response, "CONGRATULATIONS YOUR APPLICATION HAS BEEN APPROVED" ETC. So I spoke to the young lady, gave her my ssn# and dob. She confirms my address, name spelling and tells me the account was approved on 04/04/08 with a credit line of $8000. I asked if she was sure? She says yes etc. I don't think a hot wing & beer joint would give someone $8K to spend? I think she meant $800. Either way, I called again today (04/8/08) and was told twice that the credit line wasn't visible and I would get it in the mail with my kit. So, I'm already getting conflicting information, how ATE UP is that!!!. I'll keep you all posted on the outcome, once I receive the card. Sheila

Woe, $8k? I got my fingers crossed for you, but that is a huge amount and the first that I have heard comming from Hooter's. I believe one member here had one that close, but he already have cards with $75k etc. What is your highest cl on your credit cards? The reason why I am asking is becasue Hooter's is well known for trying to match your highest cl on your cr. Keep your fingers crossed also!...:p

Hoping 8K Is Correct!!! on 2008-04-09

Hey Meya,

To answer your question, my highest credit line card is with Bank of America $17,100. But I've had this card since 2000 and they just keep zooming up the CLI's every quarter. My second highest CL card is "Everyday Rewards Card Visa" through National City Bank which is $14,500, and I've only had this card for about a year or less, which began $12500 initially. I don't know, I cant wait to get this Hooters Card though to see what credit line they given me. I will let everyone know what happens. Also I didn't know that Hooters Mastercard (Merrick Bank) will match/come close to other creditor lines. Thanks for the information Meya. You should run for president!!! Sheila

President on 2008-04-09

I got too many strikes for that, besides, I can't keep a secret so the White House would explode if I was there. Poor Monica, she would have been personally whipped down by Hillary before the public knew cause I would have blew her cell phone up saying "Hill..., Hill get your behind in here now, bring your sleep with you because I... Guuuuurl you are not going to believe this... I just found a way for you to get HALF of everything twice... AFTER SHE WIRED "MY MONEY" TO MY ACCOUNT... LOL.

Oh my, let me stop, this is a comment to the card thread. Sorry FG, Rockin35 started it...:p

Meya on 2008-04-09

OMG, that was hilarious. Blowing up her cell phone with calls, lmao, I can only imagine.

But yeah, nice cl if that's what it is (which, judging from your other cl no reason to think otherwise)

Do you have an af? I feel like I'm missing out not being a member of the Hooters fam. Honestly, though I've never even been to a Hooters. :p

Re: Lyyssa01 on 2008-04-09

Honestly, I don't think hardly any one here has been to Hooter's until we got the card. Since it was given out for poor credit and have the Mastercard on it, we just said the heck with it and applied. I went a few times, but where I live, the parking is hillarious down there so I just use it for something else like junk food and groceries. Rockin35 is rocking with her credit, I have to give o'gurl credit where it is due. U-go-Girl!

I Bet U Got It on 2008-04-10

Don't be surprised, Hooters is generous. My fiance got 6500 from them and his credit is far from perfect. I'll bet you got 8000 bucks!!! Congrats!!!

Never Been To Hooters Either!!! on 2008-04-10

Yeah, folks. I've never been to Hooters before, we have 3 or 4 here in Memphis TN and I've heard nothing but good things about their food. To YoYo11 and Debtor00, I will be the first to post on this board as soon as I get this "whoppin" card. Meya, your comments are so funny... As always!!
Comment 14 by rockin35
Approved...So Where's The Card!!?? on 2008-04-16

Okay so it's been like, 2 weeks and I still haven't received this card. Anyone have any idea generally how long it takes? I'm anxious to see what annual fee these folks gave me... Rockin35!
Comment 15 by galxygrl
Hmm on 2008-04-16

This Hooters card seems to be really popular around here... Wonder why? Anyway I'm sure you should get your card soon, but if it doesn't come by next week you should give CS a call. Sorry if I wasn't much help. -galxygrl*

Call Them on 2008-04-16

Card Maker on 2008-04-16

I found info that company that makes the cards were having problems and people who were approved recently are experiencing long delays in receiving their cards because of it.
Comment 20 by lindalu
Are They Still Being Delayed? on 2008-04-16

I was approved 4/13... Did they say if they problem was fixed and if they are sending them out now... I am getting anxious!

Skating on 2008-04-16

You should be receiving your card soon but the csr's are skating on the issue when you call. I received mine back in November in about 10 days so 10 to 14 days can be the norm sometimes.
Comment 22 by yoyo11
Wow on 2008-04-16

It didn't take long for me to get my card... A total of about 12days. Orchard bank card came 25days... I think it got in someone else's mail box because I found it sticking out of mine!! Do you have a regular post man?
Comment 23 by rickella
Three Weeks For Me. on 2008-04-16

I was approved three weeks ago and the CSR told me it normally took 30 days to receive. So, I continue to wait. My CL is $500. Will probably use as a grocery and gas card. Hope your wait (and mine) ends soon. Hang in there.

Still Waiting Myself on 2008-04-17

I applied on 4/7 and I'm still waiting - impatiently I might add. :)
Comment 26 by lindalu
I Just Called Them on 2008-04-19

I applied 4/13... I just called... They said I was approve on 4/15 for $500... And should receive card in 7 to 10 business days... Was hoping for more but!!! oh well it is better than being denied!!
Comment 27 by unixdon
No Card???? on 2008-04-19

Has anyone received anything yet????? this is very odd. I don't ever remember waiting this long for a card.
Comment 28 by rickella
Nope. Still Waiting Too. on 2008-04-19

I figure when it finally comes in the mail, it will be a SURPRISE! If it doesn't arrive in the mail in the next two weeks, I will call the unbelievably bright customer service reps at Merrick Bank to find out (again) what the heck is going on. Hope your wait ends soon.
Comment 29 by rockin35
Surprised.....$8000 CL on 2008-04-22

Okay so Hooters just mailed these cards out on 04/17 or last Thursday and I finally got mine today. They must have put a "rush" on them or something, normally it takes 4 business days from time they are sent. Anyways, they approved me for $8000 with 14.20%apr No Annual Fee!! I'm glad about that!!! The default APR is 27.0%. I 've already set my account up online!!!
