Re: Feeling the US Bank luv

I called the number posted in this thread and the CSR told me that I was denied for debt-to-income ratio. They pulled both TU and Experian. I'm waiting for the letter to see if I was also denied for inquiries.

Sorry you didn't get it. Smiley Sad
At least you know what you'd need to do to be approved - get your util down (and fewer inquiries can't hurt, of course!), and it sounds like you'd have a good shot. US Bank is one of the good ones, so please don't feel deterred from trying again if it's one you'd like to get when you think you're in a position they're more likely to give a big fat YES to!

Agreed, I am sorry you didn't get it but at least you know what is necessary to improve it for the next shot. Just lay off the credit inquiries for a while and let it clear up and lose it effect before you try again. Again, sorry.

Re: Feeling the US Bank luv

Thanks for the responses. Guardian and fevmlo, it's not your faults. If it wasn't for you guys, I wouldn't know about US Bank. I'm definitely going to give them another shot in the summer after I pay off my debt and hopefully they can open their doors to me.  You're right, at least now I know what I need to improve in order for them to approve my application. My current go to card is my BOA Visa but I've been watching them closely and they look like they're going down the toilet along with Citi. If that was happen, I would want to establish a relationship with a bank that will survive this mess.

You are welcome and keep the positive outlook, its your greatest motivator. Just take your time, build yourself up a bit more, get stronger and try again. They reward responsible behavior, so it will serve you well no matter what.

I am feelin the US Bank luv too  - I got my new card on Friday, they granted me 10K at 0% for 1 year and BTs at 2.99  It really made me happy with all the negative vibes I've been feeling over my ficos / amex woes.

Re: Feeling the US Bank luv

I would definitely feel good to get approved for a card that requires a very clean report. It's definitely a sense of accomplishment.

Yes, not only that but also shows the creditor is a stable, responsible and reliable one that doesn't want to just extend credit but wants to build a true relationship. Hit and run creditors like HSBC and Crapital One are the ones that usually pray on the rest.
