Well i applied for Chase last week and got my letter in the mail today they denied me due to
"To many recent requests for credit or reviews of your credit."
They pulled EQ on me . Myfico scorewatch currently says i have 21 inquiries on my report . Alot of them are from buying a house and a car in Sept and Nov.
Should i try to call them and explain that ? My TU only has 5 on it . Would they pull that one instead? Or should i just chalk it up and forget about it. I have no baddies . My AAOA is right at a year . and utility is right around 10 percent if not less .
Thanks for reading and any suggestions are really appreciated!

Thank you to both of you for your advice . I did see that other thread after i posted mine but i didnt want to hijack his thread.
I assume its better to call the back door number during normal business hours and not at night and such ?
This will be my first time trying to Rcon an application But would really like to toss the orchard bank card i have (AF $39)

Well i tried . They still said No .
Too many accounts being opened . She even asked me if i had a Bankrupcty because my report shows a closed account in 1999 and then nothing credit wise until april of last year . (10 yrs?) She was real nice and i tried to explain the situation but she wouldnt budge . That i had no bankruptcy and had gotten divorced and was just paying cash for everything. But being recently getting married , buying a house and a new car and such added a lot of inquiries . 6 yrs on the same job .
8 accounts opened in the past year .
Well i cant say i didnt try!

Not sure if they have that information or not, probably, but I doubt it matters too much.
This is from a website where people share approval status and such...
"Was denied, then recon twice, second time worked!!"
"Got the 30 day BS, called to recon right after. 2 baddies on EQ, 5 new accounts just hit the 6 month mark, no INQ. RECON these guys! Chase loves a Recon and its easy!"
"on recon,4th time was the charm, kept calling 800 number for recon"
I'd say give it another shot!
