Capital One Cash No AF version for me.

 

My credit history:

Wells Fargo $1000, opened 09/2010, closed 09/2011

Capital One $750, opened 01/2011

BofA 1-2-3 $2500, opened 08/2011

Chase Freedom $6000, opened 09/2011

Citi Forward $7000, opened 02/2012

AMEX BCE $6000, opened 02/2012

Fidelity AMEX  $7500, opened 09/2012

Priceline Visa $1300, opened 09/2012

 

I tried for Capital One twice - 09/2011, 02/2012. Denied. Screw them. Although no foreign fee 1.5% cashback card would be nice not going to try it again for a price of 3 inqs. Their definition of excellent credit is ridiculous.

I applied to citi 3 times and each time, my application was denied. I don't get it. Their excuse was too many inquires...

I really think they auto deny these applications. My FICO score is at least in the 700s. With the recent inquires and newly opened accounts...its probably dropped a bit

Re: Cards You Just Can't Seem To Obtain!

For me it's not really a card that I can't get, but it's getting that first credit card to give a decent credit limit.  For example recently approved for a discover more card and they simply matched my highest credit limit....$1200. Aarghh!!

 

And I  guess once I get denied I don't really try and reapply.....the only card that I want and was denied for is AMEX BCE and I'm already in the AMEX family so I guess eventually I'll try for that one again and hope to have better luck!
