New cards and CL's - Fidelity WTH? - update

[ Edited ]

So I applied for the Navy Federal Flagship Rewards, Penfed VISA Platinum Cash Rewards and Fidelity Rewards American Express all at the same time. I got approved for the following CLs:

 

Navy Federal: $40k

Penfed: $20k

Fidelity: $1k

 

I have never been approved for such a low credit limit, even after coming out right after college. Is there something that I'm missing with these people? When I called and talked to card services she couldn't tell me anything, but just they make their decisions based off a variety of factors, blah blah blah.

I have no idea. I did apply with them last. And I have two car loans in the last month along with the other two card applications. But that just seems absurd. I wish I could get the HP back.

What number would I call to recon a credit limit? I asked the CSR but she didn't give me that as an option. I have an income which puts me in the highest tax bracket and my fico is 777.
