Welcome to the Help Center

My application for a Card was declined. Will this affect my credit score and report?

If your application was declined, we do not report it to the credit bureaus. This will not affect your credit score. However, your request for a Card will show up on your credit bureau reports as a request for credit, also known as an "inquiry."

You can visit our Consumer Resources page to learn more about credit scores and reports.
