Re: Declined Chase Freedom :(

Could you tell me whether Chase wants an AAoA or the age of the oldest credit card to be more than 1 year?

Last App: 09/17/2013 // No App Until: Mortgage (05/14?)

Cards in my wallet: AMEX BCE ($8000) // CITI AA VISA SIG ($5000) // CHASE FREEDOM ($3500) // DISCOVER IT ($1000) // CAP ONE NC ($1000) // WALMART DISCOVER ($1600)
Credit Scores: FICO TU08 (10/13): 739 // Credit Karma (10/13): 677??!! // Credit Sesame (10/13): 730
Next Goal: CSP (after mortgage probably...)

Wouldn't be concerne with AAoA, just make sure you have an account or two a year old in positive history.

Totally agree with LS' advice on this.  You have to get started somewhere and you should be proud of what you have already accomplished thus far.  Growth comes with time/age.
