mom2parker's review: Applied several months ago and was instantly denied. Re-applied on 11/25 and got the "7-10 day message". Have been impatiently waiting for the mailman to come everyday and still hadn't received it. I looked up the regular CS number and my husband called today. He was pleasantly surprised to talk to an American and she was very helpful. She looked up his information and told him he was approved and the card was sent out on Wednesday. Credit limit is $550. Didn't ask about an annual fee or APR yet... Was just excited to hear that we were approved!! :)

You applied for it or your husband? Or was it a joint application?

Congratulations on the approval, I get a kick out of women having this card!

Hooters did me wrong by closing my account for some bogus reason. I got kicked out of the family, LOL.

I hate to hear that, but at the same time don't trip because it is not a card that you hear anyone bragging on. The most you will ever hear the joy from is the approval. The APR is too high anyway, it is just a good card for rebuilding and lines of credit.

Great hearing from you again, Mom2Parker. Glad to hear of your experience with Merrick.

Hooters is a very popular, if not the most popular on this board next to Cap One. Very high approval rate.

I'm glad to see you got in with another larger issuer.

Sounds like your scores have gotten better, and Congrats on your card!

Enjoy, and Happy Holidays!!

Well well well... Congratulations and welcome! That's two of us joining the Hooters clan this week. Yay Merrick Bank!

Sorry to hear about cireone's issues. I hope to hear a follow up if or when a better, clearer answer about why they did what they did comes around.

Strange... Two approvals and one cancellation all in the same period. Hmmmmmmm...
