Chase Freedom - App Rejected

I was rejected for a Chase Freedom due to lack of credit history according to Chase. She also hinted at the fact that I just got a Chase Saphire Preffered.  Currently I have...

 

Chase Saphire Preffered 5k, $69/5000  01/2013

Capital One VentureOne 3K, $0/3000   09/2012

Macy's AMEX $300, $0/300, 05/2008

Neiman Marcus Card 2K, $0/2000, 11/2007

Macy's Store Card 2K, $0/2000, 09/2005

 

Is my credit history insufficient, or should I try again with recon?  She said if I did get one, the limit would be low.

 

Tbh, I really wanted one for the 5% categories and the ability to get UR points with it to combine with the CSP.

Re: Chase Freedom - App Rejected

Probably because your cards are still pretty new....couldnt hurt to recon...you already took the hit for the pull so you might as well.

You may be able to get a 500 cl , but I would have to agree. you oldest cards look to be store cards. Also you just got saphire with chase in jan ,and your other credit card is not even a year old yet.

Chase loves that 'lack of revolving history' line. Assuming these are your individual accounts- call back.
Good luck!

Recon ASAP. Getting approved for a CS/CSP recently isn't a guarenteed denial for the Freedom.
