Re: Regret a hard pull?

I regret applying for the Apple Barclay (wanted it for interest free period, but they only approved me for $500) and the following HP I got asking for a CLI despite them telling me over and over it was a soft pull.  It seems like a lot of people have had great luck with Barclay, but I guess there's something in my credit profile they just hate Robot Embarassed  On a positive note, Chase approved me for 12x that amount so I guess my business is going there!

Re: Regret a hard pull?

Definately the BofA better balance rewards for me. After apping i realized that the card just wasn't worth it for a new tradeline and HP. I was hoping for a denial, but they approved me for a low limit. I figured that i would just use it for my netflix subscription and that $100 every year ($25 each quarter) bonus basically pays for netflix. So i guess the card does have some use for me.

Amazon Store Card ($4000) Amex BCE ($7400) BofA Better Balance Rewards ($2500) Best Buy Store Card ($5000) Chase Freedom ($2500) Discover It ($5500) Walmart Discover ($6000) Wells Fargo CB ($3500)

I agree!  Any denial is an HP I regret....like my most recent Amex denial.  At least I know what I need to work on.

Re: Regret a hard pull?

I havn't read the full message but basing this off the headline topic

My biggest regret is calling chase freedom for CLI after receiving the card for activation and actually following thru the message on the approval screen saying if 3000 CL is not sufficient for you then i can request for more

but to my defense the rep didn't know anything if it was going to be a hard pull or not  and was getting me agitated and she was willing to transfer me to someone who may help me with my answer .. lol

I regret the two HPs I have for Citi - one last year and one this year - because they denied me for their cards.  I hate wasting HPs, but it was my choice to apply.


Most of my HPs are from Citi and I always get denied! I have excellent credit and no collections. I don't know what kind of scoring scale they use but I see people with collections and judgments getting approved all the time!


Maybe they don't like high reported utilization?  Or is your credit history and/or AAoA short?
