GE Capital denied

I'm so disappointed. I did an in-store app for the TJX rewards card and was not approved. I called the backdoor number for recon and was told it's a "hard" decline and they can't recon. This was my second inquiry this year and I hoped would be the last. My plan was to manage my NFCU nrewards and TJX rewards Mastercard, garden, and finish repairing til next year.

 

Maybe, it was too soon?

Re: GE Capital denied

Thanks for the words of encouragement! Very much appreciated. Hopefully, soon I'll have Comenity updated, PRA removed and Midland removed. They are paid and I await a response to my GWs. I probably should've waited :smileysad:

 

Its just frustrating...I spend so much money in that store and I really want the card.

Re: GE Capital denied

I'm not sure if the scores in your sig are current, but I think they are a bit low for TJX. From what I've seen, approvals seem to be above 650 for the store card. The MC is probably higher. I feel for ya, I want one too.

Re: GE Capital denied

for that range of scores you may get cards from GE (PayPal Smart Connect & Amazon store). I was getting denied by GE when i was in low 600s. Once my scores crossed 650 mark i got approved for Walmart store card (GE Product)

Re: GE Capital denied

Wow, really!?! Why so high of a score needed? Even for the store card? Dag. That's on Nordstrom level! I thought GECRB/GEMB was pretty easy on requirements, no?

 

I would love to know the scores for those that have the TJX store cards with a $200 limit?

 

I will continue to repair and try again. 650+ is in my near future  :smileysad:

Re: GE Capital denied

You might think about trying for the Walmart card first. A lot of folks are approved under 650. It's a good start with GE and it's worth it for the free monthly TU Fico, even if you don't usually shop there.

+1

 

Once those factors improve OP, then you can try again with them.  The cleaner your profile and the higher the score, then you'd be positioned for the MC instead of the store card (unless you're ok with just the store CC).  Now, their rewards are nothing to write home about, but they are decent if you shop there frequently or Home Goods.  I have their MC.
