Instant Decision Credit Cards

Some credit cards come with an “instant decision” – that is, they allow a customer to apply online, filling in all relevant application data, clicking send, and getting a decision in 60 seconds or less. When a customer is approved instantly online, a hard copy of the terms and conditions will be mailed to the applicant and once all materials have been sufficiently completed, a card will be mailed to the new card member.
