Recons Work, They Really Do!!!

I'm done for a while.  Today was a success with 2 out of 3 cards approved!  Amazon gave me this message after applying:

Thank you for applying for the Amazon.com Rewards Visa Card.

Unfortunately, an immediate decision about your application can not be provided as it requires further review. You will be notified in writing about the status of your application within 30 days.

 

I looked up the back door number for Chase and spoke to a very nice guy who asked me lots of questions about collections and inquiries and after being placed on hold for 4 more times, he came back and told me he was able to approve me for a small credit limit of $500.  That's ok, have to start somewhere.  The results of today are:

 

WalMart = NO      Discover IT = $2200 CL     Amazon Chase = $500 CL

Re: Recons Work, They Really Do!!!

I think I should be done for now due to the amount of inquiries.  I have 3 in one day.  I don't think that's so great!

Tried to recon WalMart again and got the same message that once the system denies the application, they can't override the decision.

GE and usually Discover, will not recon apps. It's a yes or a no
