Re: Chase Freedom denied.. Should I recon?

Do you have other loans, such as auto, mortgage, student loans, or anything else that you are basically obliged to make monthly payments on?

Re: Chase Freedom denied.. Should I recon?

Some credit cards have a minimum income like $15000 a year. Student cards require  a smaller income. That may be the problem.

If you already have the HP then there is nothing to lose on a recon

Hello,

 

You guys might remember me from this post http://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/Credit-Cards/Advice-on-Cap1/m-p/2308419#M649748 looking for a cashback no FTF card, and the advice was to apply for Discover. However, due to not having enough income and not a student, I was not able to apply for it.

 

I've decided that I was going to look for a different card, this time just for cashback and having no FTF would be an extra. I went and apply for the Chase Freedom got a pending review and today just got my denial letter. I was denied because of

 

"Current obligations too high relative to income"

 

When I applied, I had these as my balances

Cap1 Platinum 65.79/1250

Cap1 Playstation 0/500

 

Should I attempt to recon? or just let it go?

 

 


Is that what your balances were when you applied or what had been reported to the CRAs when you applied?


It's the balance when I applied, it hasn't been reported to the CRA yet.

 

As for the income it's 7k with no loans, mortgage and rent


What balance had been reported to the CRAs?

AMEX True Earnings (14k) || Discover IT (10k) || Chase Sapphire Preferred (6k) || Chase Freedom (6k) || Citi ThankYou Preferred (6.3k) || GE CareCredit (4.9k) || Citi Double Cash (4.9k) || Sallie Mae (4k) || Best Buy (2k) || AMEX Blue Cash Everyday (2k) || Target REDcard (1.5k)
