Your AAoa is under 1 yr and you have 2 inq in Oct, so they might be skittish that you're getting a lot of CR at once. Don't know. We have no idea what their criteria and algorithms are.

 

If you only have 2 CCs under 1 yr, that might not be enough history for them. All we can do is speculate. Since their approvals are manually done by an underwriter, I sincerely doubt a "recon" would do any good with them.

Re: duck car declined...with 730ish score

Oldest is 10 months...lol.

1. Us bank 4k secured
2. Boa 4k just unsecured, and cli to 12k.

And few more new approvals.. don't show on my cr yet. Probably my cr only show us bank 4k and boa 4k on the application.

Re: duck car declined...with 730ish score

OH NO... I just double checked my alerts, the boa unsecured and cli are on TU...not on eq. So, my eq basically have 2 inquiries in Jan, and one inquiry for duck card.

The 2 boa inquiries on TU may mess up my applications with ge and barclay, which I plan to apply tonight.

Is that reporting yet?

 

I could see why a manual UW might get a biit leery over two secured cards (assuming that's what they saw).  Maybe you should try again in a few months, if you're willing to take another HP at that point.

Re: duck car declined...with 730ish score

Will not apply again if I fail the recon.

I still have car loan to apply and few more cards for this app spree. At this moment, not so sure if I should apply for more credit cards since I dont really need credit now. I just got addicted to credit game.

But, if I put everything thru now, i will probably be golden after 6 months or a year.

Remember that your FICO is dangerously deceptive when you have a thin file. Substance in the file is much more important than the score alone.
