BOA/Citi questions

Hey guys I am new to the forum and would like some help. I recently applied for the CITI Dividend World Mastercard and the BOA Cash Rewards CC. With CITI I was declined but have yet to receive my letter stating the reason. I should get it this week and when I see the reason I will post on here to gather info to see if I should try a recon. I just applied today for the BOA Cash rewards card and I was not instantly approved so I need to call BOA monday to get my answer. I currently have a FICO score of 696 on EQ. and 709 on TU. EQ is showing 3 Inquiries and TU only 1 in the past year. I guess I would like to know if based on the information I gave do you think I will be able to be approved for the BOA card and if not should I also attempt a recon as well? 

 

My other CCs are as follows 

Cap 1 - $500 CL (150 balance)

Chase - $300 (PIF)

Zales $512 (PIF)

Banana Rep - $3550 ($1700 balance)

Macys $600 ($400 balance)

Amex Zync - (PIF monthly)

 

Thanks for everyones help in advance. If anyone has any pointers for me on how to improve my score in a short amount of time I am all ears as well! I started 3 months in the 670's for both TU and EQ so I know I am improving and working hard at paying off my CCs.

 

 


Starting Score: EQ 696 TU 709
Current Score: EQ 746 TU 742 as of 5/12 Ex. 732 as of 6/1/12 (Off EX. website)
Goal Score: 760 by 12/31/12

Re: BOA/Citi questions

Your Util is pretty high...if you don't pay all your PIF cards down to $0 before the statement cuts you might be pushing 50% Util. It's going to be hard to get any prime card with that high Util%, but it can never hurt to recon!

Usually when people get that message they aren't immediately declined. I recommend calling - you may be pleasantly surprised!

FICO: EX: 743 (10/14); TU: 758 (9/14); EQ 721 (9/14)

In My Wallet: Amex X 5 | Barclays X 3 | BOA X 1 | CapOne X 3 | Chase X 3 | Citi X 7 | DCU X 1 | Discover X 1 | Fidelity X 1 | Fifth Third X 1 | Macys X 1 | PenFed X 1 | PSECU X 1 | Sams Club MC X 1 | Target RedCard X 1 | USAA X 2 | US Bank X 1 | Walmart X 1 | Wells Fargo X 1 = 36 Cards

Holding off apps until the end of the year! Wish me luck!
