Re: Denied for Amex BCE :-(

Well, as of yesterday the application has been "In Progress". 

 

Today, I got a Hard Inquiry on my report. I am a little annoyed because the CSR I spoke to said that if I sent in my updated Experian report, I would not recieve a hard inquiry. I sent in TWO reports! If I am denied again, I will be furious. I wouldn't have recon'd if I was going to get a hard pull. 

My Wallet: Amex Plat, Amex ZYNC, Amex BCE: 3k, Barclays iTunes: 3k, Discover IT: 7.5k, Citi Diamond: 1.8k, Capital One Secured: 750

Scores: EX: 727 EQ: 740 TU: 728

CSRs are notoriously misinformed about credit topics like inquiries, and also when and how their companies pull your reports.   A Recon with any creditor will almost always result in an additional hard pull of your credit.
