I recently got approved for a TJX MC and an amazon visa. I called in because I really didn't want to keep the amazon card and was wondering if I could consolidate or product change to the freedom (the card is only 400 CL). They said that I should just apply for the freedom as well. I asked if this was going to be a problem, and the said not at all. So I applied, called in and was told that I had just opened 2 other accounts and to try in 6 months. I was pretty mad.This all took place in late december. I've waited until the app status said I had no apps in the last 30 days. So now I am wondering if I could apply for the card I really wanted without getting shot down again. Are they going to give me the same 6 months excuse ?
if they stated the requirement of at least 6 mos. you probably have to wait at least that long for successful reapp.
in the meantime you may be able to PC after the new regs kick in.
