What was the denial reason? If it was "pyramiding debt", they will NOT recon--regardless of your score. I was denied for this reason and I was told that my new accounts have to be at least 6 months old in order to try again.





Is that a polite way of saying too many new accounts?

Penfed doesn't understand the difference between credit and debt?
 
Having a lot of new credit is not even close to the same thing as "pyramiding debt."
 
This amazes me.  I always thought "pyramiding debt" referred to the practice of opening new accounts while not paying off existing debt at the same time.

Re: Penfed denial

It's a catch all denial. Once they see you can handle your new lines they will approve you all things being equal.

It does and they fully understand. They are just very sensitive about new accounts.
