When you apply for a credit card, it usually only takes a few minutes to learn whether you’ve been approved or denied—but it can take up to two weeks to learn why your credit card application was denied. Thanks to the Fair Credit Reporting Act, lenders are required to tell you why they’ve rejected your credit application. This is called an adverse action notice (or adverse action letter), and you can expect it to arrive between seven and 10 business days after your rejection.
