Re: Zync Declined

Amex actually pulled all three reports, probably because I applied for a charge card and a revolver in the same day. They have done this to me in the past.  The only reason why I mentioned Equifax is because that is what MyFico gives us, and it told me that Amex pulled it.

Re: Zync Declined

Amex pulled TU, EQ and EX for me!   I pulled the trigger a bit to early, knowing that my CA accounts had only been removed from EX.

 

I also made the mistake of apping for the credit card, expecting that I would probably be declined.  My intention was to app for that and the Zync  at the same time - thinking that they were only going to pull once, so why not try for the credit card too?  However, my 2nd app, which was for the Zync was cancelled.  So 3 hits for nothing :smileysad:

Re: Zync Declined

Anyone ever had an issue with seeing your application status??? It keeps saying "Your application cannot be accessed, please try again later".

Re: Zync Declined

 I got that reply when I app'd for the Blue and got denied.  However, right after that I app'd for the Delta Gold and it got cancelled because I applied for three cards in the same day and I called and got them to manually review it.

Re: Zync Declined

I had that screen for a few days after I was declined.  Eventually it was updated with my denial letter.

Re: Zync Declined

[ Edited ]

If you can, maybe it's worth paying all cards off or at least very low.

 

I got the counter offer with a score of around 600 (EQ/TU, EX can't be that much different), even though the EX report they pulled showed two paid tax liens from 2007, two charge offs (both paid) from 2008, 30-day late payments from 2010 and 2011, an (incorrect) current 60-day delinquent on a paid-off car loan and a boatload of enquiries. The only real plusses were 0% utilization on the credit cards and a currently-healthy mortgage (but with a 60-day-late in early 2010).

 

Quite honestly, I had a hard time figuring out why I got the counter offer instead of a flat denial. I can only think that the 0% utilization looks good for a charge card that must be paid in full each month.
