My oldest acct was opened 14 yrs ago, AAoA is 3.3 yrs, 2 inquires in last year, no baddies, I have 3 new accounts opened up in the last year. My fico was a 759 when I applied. Looking for any input. 



Sorry to hear the bad news!!!  I think the 3 new account within the last year spooked them


Depending on when he opened like 3 new accounts in less than 6 months, but I dont see it being a problem where its 3 new accounts in a year span.

 

I would call and just find out why and try to recon. 


This does not apply with PenFed, they spook very easy. It's either that or Debt/Income ratio .

Re: Pen Fed odds?

Re: Pen Fed odds?

Definitely recon! When you call in they will most likely tell you that you have to fax a letter in saying why you think they should have approved you. Pull your credit report and give solid details supporting your argument against the denial reasons. I just did it and got them to approve me with a much less favorable credit profile. They gave me an absolute joke of a limit, but it will go up in time.

I got approved for a PenFed CC and LOC this month with 5 new accounts in a 6 month period so this statement maybe its a YMMV moment

Congrats!  I'd love to have 1.49%.  Did you apply for the car or for the loan first?
