I wouldn't really worry about why you got denied until you get your letter stating why. i don't think it was your credit history. i got my first ever credit card from capital one with no history.

It could be something incorrect on your credit report, like your address. I would wait and see what the reason is as it is probably easily correctable with your scores.

It might be something simple like an address verification. Dont get too worked up until you get the letter and dont get maced by the mailman for lurking. You could always call and recon if you just cant wait.

[ Edited ]

Yeah, I have a Cap One secured for $350.  Applied for the Cash Rewards and got approved for $500; should arrive today or early next week.  So, though I probably won't use it since I will be using the Cash Rewards, I went ahead and applied for the Cap One regular unsecured platinum and I was denied.  I wanted it as a back up general use emergency sock drawered card and so I can cancel the secured platinum.  I do have baddies and also applied for other accounts and approved with Walmart and Amazon and a Discover card from Continental.  I guess my recent inquiries may be the reason?  I guess it could have been worse if I applied for the unsecured platinum and got denied for the Cash Rewards.  It's a small $500 credit limit but I could probably still rack up $12,000 a year on it by putting all bills/expenses on it and paying weekly to keep the balance down to make sure available credit is there when recurring bills like iPhone, Charter internet, utilities, Geico, etc get billed on it.

 

Any chance if I call and recon the Platinum that they would do it?

I think, not having any CC makes it harder.   Suggest you consider a secured card with Capital One, or someone else.   After some history on the first CC, it will be easier.

Re: Got denied!!!! Capital one plat

Who financed your car loan?

If it's a major bank or credit union around you I would look at applying for a credit card with them!

and or I would hit up American Express Green Charge, Discover, and Citi Forward.

 

Additional options would be Macy's, Walmart, etc. in the GE line. (Macy's being part of Citi)

Fico Scores: EQ- 670., TU 705 Sync, EX 700 (04/20/15)
I'm just trying to catch up to RON1
Highest Limit: Navy Federal Cash Sigi Visa $50k (AU)
Lowest Limit: Target $200
83 Cards and Counting :smileytongue:

Valdo12,you were denied because you can only have 2 cards issued by capital one (not counting store cards)

OP wait for the letter, and meanwhile pull your free reports since you got denied and make sure there isnt anything incorrect on them.
