Macy's denial

This was about a year ago, my scores were:

EX 651/EQ 620/TU 655

I had a Fingerhut 750.00 CL (don't judge, they report well!)

BofA secured (99/500)

 

I was denied online, called the number given and the rep told me I was declined for not having a mortgage or car payment

I was 36, car under my bfs name, and renting

Has anyone else heard this denial reason before?

Start: Nov'12 EQ 699/EX 685/TU 696 / Current: April''14 EQ 715/EX 709/TU 709 * Goal 750+

I have never heard of someone being denied a card solely due to lack of an installment loan or mortgage. That's crazy.

I had never heard of  it either, only that types of credit lines should be mixed = albeit not crucial it's helpful... but should not warrant a flat out denial :smileysad:

They lied to you! my sister who is 18 got her macys card on 04-01-12 with a $300 CL and with nothing reporting except a joint acct she has had since 02-09-12. Something is not right you should contact them and make them tell you the real reason why they denied your first application. :smileymad:

Re: Macy's denial

when i got my macy's card in 2008, the only TLs i had were 1 cc (BofA, opened only a few months prior, PIF monthly) and a CU overdraft LOC ($0 balance, established in 1990),  i applied in-store while making a purchase.

 

no mortgage, no installment loans, and no auto loan/s (open or closed) on any of my CRs at the time.


BofA visa $9.4k ... BofA Cash Rewards visa sig $10k ... Cap 1 Venture1 visa sig $10k ...
Chase Freedom visa $10k ... Macy's $1.5k ... Macy's Amex $5k ... Sam's Club $6.3k

Yes, lack of mortgage or auto loan can be a reason for denial. This reason alone is not enough to get you denied. But when combined with other reasons, it became a compelling argument to have you denied.

 

Your letter will cite multiple reasons for denial.

Re: Macy's denial

I've never had a mortgage or car payment. However, I do have student loans and that probably got me my approval when I first app'd for Macy's over four years ago.
