I applied once again for a Chase card, it has been 7 months since my last app with them.
I was denied. The reason was short credit history. I called for a recon, got a very nice lady, explained my situation, and she said she would recommend me for a card with a nice starting limit. And that if all goes well I will get my welcome packet in about 7 days.
That was 18 days ago. I called yesterday, got a nother nice CSR, he said that my app was in review by a supervisor, and they would make the decision and send me a letter when they make the decision. I asked if that meant a decline, to which he could not answer.
Since I am the "Teflon Recon" and have not had a succesful one yet, I was wondering how you all do it?
I am really nice on the phone with the CSR's, even when they are saying no, I don't get mean or nasty... honestly I think I need pointers though in some trick that gets the job done, because honesty and kindness does not seem to be working.

Sorry to hear about your luck with recon's Pappy I am in the same boat as you as far as not really knowing exactly what to say. As far as recon's go, I have never actually tried one yet, just too scared I suppose. I know a lot of people say what have you got to loose. I would be interested in knowing what some people have done to get a recon successfully.
