Instant Approval Credit Cards: How do They Work ?
Although I DON'T recommend applying for numerous credit cards for no reason, if you are still in the market for credit cards, you can understand the process by reading this article.
Everything moves faster in today’s world. Credit card companies recognize that consumers expect fast results, and they have responded accordingly. You can now apply for what is known as the instant approval credit card. How does this type of card work? And just how “instant” is it? Here’s the run-down on instant approval credit cards and how to decide if one is right for you.
Where to Find Them
Applications for instant approval credit cards are not likely to show up in your mailbox. You can, however, find them online by going to a credit card website. They are often listed in a section of their own. Some can be found in other categories, such as low interest rate cards or cards for those with poor credit.
What “Instant” Means
Most companies advertise that you will know whether or not you’ve been approved for the card within 60 seconds. This means that after you fill out an online application and send it in, a response will be e-mailed to you in less than a minute. The process is incredibly faster than sending in an application through the mail.
Getting approved for a credit card does not mean that you can begin using it right away. You will have to wait for the actual piece of plastic to arrive in your mailbox. In most cases, this takes between five and seven business days. Once you have the card in your hands, you’ll need to call a number to authorize that you have received it. Then you’re free to swipe it as you wish.
