Wow, with your scores and your limits I can't believe they turned you down!!  That makes me totally wigged to try app-ing and I was planning on trying in a few days.  What reason did they give?

Re: Credit cards you just can't seem to "crack"

Don't use me as a benchmark lol. I went app crazy and got most of my cards after Amex turned me down. Prior to applying for Amex I only had Wells Fargo, chase amazon, Bloomingdales and Macy's.
the reason I got turned down was too many recent inquiries (5) due to an auto loan that was opened 1 month prior. Loan balances reported were too high too because its a brand new auto loan reporting :/

Re: Credit cards you just can't seem to "crack"

For me i thought Chase wasnt going to like me at all. Applied back in August of 2012 and got denied 2 times (one on recon). Was so afraid to apply again considering how i read they are INQ sensitive and dont like collections/chargeoffs on reports (no matter how old they are). I gave it a shot and got instantly approved for a signature card a copule of days ago. As of last year i got denied Chase, AMEX, and Citi all in one day and now i am in with all 3...lol. Thanks to this forum of course!


Cards: (Citi x6) (Chase x5) (US Bank x3) (Amex x3) (Barclays x3) (BofA x3) (Cap1 x2) (WF x2) (Penfed x1) (Discover x1) (Sync/GE x4) (Macys x2)
