Backdoor Numbers To Creditors


Backdoor Numbers To Cards

A "backdoor number" is one that gets you past front-line CSR's directly to Credit Analysts / Credit Departments / Account Managers / Account Specialists (different lenders call 'em different things) -these people/departments have decision-making abilities greater than front-line CSR's, they are able to take and review requests for reconsideration of denied cc apps or CLI requests, APR reductions, etc. and implement their decisions.

Backdoor numbers and the people to whom they connect you can be useful in requesting a reduced APR if you feel your credit profile rates a lower one, or in requesting a review of a denied credit application or declined request for a credit limit increase, if you feel your credit profile deserves an approval, but they aren't magic wands - as with anything, your mileage may vary depending on your individual credit profile.
