Warning: Denied On Amazon Visa W/ 800 Credit Score Due To A Bad Account 7+ Years Ago

Well was I in for a rude awakening!  I had settled my amazon.com credit card roughly 8 years ago.  I rebuilt my credit, got a score over 800, no lates, high income, no negative marks, and I got denied.  I called the backdoor number and they stated it's because I used to my past with them they will not re-issue me one.  Well this stinks.  Anyone have any suggestions?  Also serve this as warning, if you had a card in the past with them not in good standing you will get denied.


Edit:

I asked to speak to a supervisor.  She looked at my credit re-establishment history and factored that in as well instead of just looking at my credit score.  For some reason Discover was showing a $500 limit when I raised it to $5000 earlier.  Probably didn't report in yet.  Either way, after politely speaking to Nancy she approved it for $1000.  In 6 months or so I will ask for a CLi.  

 

Thanks for everyone's help!

Sounds like your blacklisted.

Sorry to hear that happened to you.

Maybe you could try for the CHASE Amazon Visa.
