It's a good thing that Hooters denied your application. I would go with Capital One for now and apply for better cards in a year or so.

I was approved for a 1k CL with hooters last month , I had like 4 INQ on TU and my scores are listed below

 

while it may not be a prime card I dont see anything wrong with having them. 

 

 

Hope this helps!

I prefer having a Capital One card rather than a Hooters card because I've heard of consumers having their accounts closed for no apparent reason.

Re: hooters card denied

A score of 640 isn't the greatest score but it's not as bad as you might think. It's good enough to get away from cards such as First Premier. Personally, I would prefer having a Capital One card than a Hooters card. Based on what I've read from other posts, Merrick Bank (Hooters) seems to be inconsistent with their approvals.

Re: hooters card denied

As far as I know, Hooters won't approve your application if you have a  relatively new mortgage or if you don't have any other credit card.

Not sure how you perceive new on a mortgage but I just bought my house in October.

Re: hooters card denied

I think their idea of 'new' is anything less than two years.

 

(If memory serves me right, at least.)
