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.

Also for what it is worth, I have no bad marks on any of my credit reports and my FAKO scores are Credit Karma 745, Credit Sesame 775

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.
