I only got approved for a secured card =(
It's a start, but I really liked the gold card offer...shoot!
Has anyone had the secured card from Providian?
I have a secured Providian. secured it in April with 100 minimun. Kept 100 limit. Paid on time and limit has been increased to 700. Was told by rep today that I could get my deposit back.
Is it still secured?
Should I send the money anyway
I want to send the $49 processing fee anyway. I figure it's money coming their way so they might accept it... on the other hand, they might take the money and run...
RE: Should I send the money an
Maybe they'll send me another offer soon. I threw away the first one because of grace period and interest rate where turn offs. This is my second gold offer from them, but I was hesitant about getting it so I didn't put extra money aside for the deposit! Now the offer expired today, and I get paid tomorrow!!
Any input from others that have dealt with Providian?
You will get another offer in about a month. Same thing happened to me. I got the visa gold offer w/ a $300 limit and I tossed it in the trash. Then like 1 month later, that same offer came around and that's when I realized that I should take to start rebuilding my credit, so I did. I guess while that card was being processes, they sent ANOTHER $300 for $49 offer but I tossed it because I figured that the offer was generated and mailed before my account was actually set up.
RE: Don't Worry....
Thanks... so you think I should just wait for another offer, huh? I might as well. I just get so impatient with all this credit stuff. I have no credit and I'm addicted to inquiring.
I just want someone out there to say," congrats, you're approved". I feel so desperate... =(
RE: Don't Worry....
Well, when that offer comes around again....you better JUMP in it. Providian is good to their customers.....some may not agree w/ me but my experience has been GREAT!
Call again, this time ask for a supervisor. You might try saying you got the offer too late and would still like to apply. I have a Providian Card and threw away an offer for an upgrade. About a month later I changed my mind and called a rep to ask when my account would be reviewed for an increase. When told me about the offer from before, I simply stated that I never received it. The rep said that they would sent out another offer since I didn't "get" the first one. Remember, with Providian persistance is the key. You may have to speak to more than one person, but don't give up until you get what you want.
I'll call today...
I'll call today and ask for a supervisor, but yesterday they asked for my name and social when I called. Do they type up a short summary of what the call was about or something? I just don't wanna get caught slippin.
RE: I'll call today...
They may or may not have kept a record of your call,but I wouldn't worry too much about that. They probably asked for your name and SSN to keep track of who they've sent offers to. Providian is not known for turning down an opportunity to make money off of you. They want your business, so use that to your advantage. Keep telling them you got the offer late and that you would still like to take advantage of their offer. Good luck and keep me posted!
RE: I'll call today...
I called and got a one week extension, just like that. Too easy!
Here's where I went wrong:
1. I called the number off of the Providian website (1800-647-8641) and they turned me down.
2. They gave me another #(1800-664-2614) to apply for a card. I was approved for the secured card (minimum deposit of $100).
3. I looked at the back of my application and
saw a # for questions (1800-810-3951)
4. Got another # where I could actually speak to a live person (1800-642-0171) and got an extension.
Thanks for encouraging me to be persistent, Carrot!! I'm thrilled! =D
