Congratulations!!!! on 2008-11-25

Its awesome to see people get approved for good cards like Hooters, I have applied twice and declined both times, they also pulled my Transunion bureau, I am sure that with in a year or two I will qualify for better cards, but I realize it takes time. What was your scores at the time of approval? What was your credit limit when you called to find out? Again congratulations!!!

Question on 2008-11-25

Hello everyone, this is my first post. I have been trying to get this card for a long time. The first time I tried it was about 6 months ago and I got the infamous 7-10 day message(denied). Then I tried a couple other times since then, and flat out got denied. Well, on Saturday I thought, what the heck, and tried again. This time I got the 7-10 day message again. The exact message..."Thank you for giving Hooters MasterCard the opportunity to serve your financial needs. We are processing your application and you will be notified regarding its status within 7-10 business days."

My question, is this the same message all of you have received? Im hoping I might have finally gotten this card. My Transunion score is 643, EX is 601, and Equifax is 555. Thanks all in advance. I will keep you posted.

This Card Is Everywhere on 2008-11-25

Typical on 2008-11-25

From what I gather, a lot of people get this message, it does not mean you were declined.

You may have a lot of inquiries though, banks don't like to see that.

Good luck

Wahoooo! on 2008-11-25

Welcome to the Hooter's family! I am so happy for your approval. You are so welcome for the info, but we give all credit to you because it is not easy cleaning up a report that was once damaged in the past. Congrats and keep us posted with your overall usage of the card. Like the family say, "Go for the Hot Wings."

PS, how much was your limit, if you don't mind me asking?

Congrats on your approval! You're on your way to better things. Be very disciplined with this card, keep your balance no higher than 30% and on time, every time, and you will see nice things happen

Enjoy your new card!

Congrats on the HOOTERS card!! When I first applied I thought I was denied too until I got the card in the mail one day with a $600 cl. I was shocked... Good luck with your credit (re)building.
