Credit Card Glossary: Terms and Definitions
A credit card application is the document a consumer or consumers sign to request a credit card. It typically asks for personal information such as income and Social Security number to help the card issuer decide whether to extend credit and at what rate. Who signs the application is particularly important. If a husband and wife both apply, for example, then both become individually responsible for the entire debt.
