Seeing the word “pending” after you submit a PNC credit card application can be frustrating, but it doesn’t mean you are denied. All applicants will receive notification of approval or denial within seven to 10 days. However, if you’d like to check your PNC credit card application status, you can contact the PNC Credit Card Underwriting department by phone.
