Sorry to hear that, jango.  :smileysad:
 
Have you thought about BoA or Citi?  Personally, I think they're 2 of the best lenders out there. 
What kind of baddies do you have on your reports?

Re: nearing 700 score and got denied by wamu

Wamu is a strange creature indeed. When I got my card with them, my credit was trash... BUT, I my total deposits with them into my bank account were in the close to the 7 figure mark... therefore, I believe that Wamu heavily leans in favor of current big money or loyal customers when making credit decisions. Maybe I'm wrong, but I can't figure why they would have given me (a guy whose credit score was worse than Geraldo Rivera's reporting talent on Fox News) a $3500.00 card.

Of course their gamble paid off because I have always been a good customer... still...

Re: nearing 700 score and got denied by wamu

I know how it feels
 
 
I got my TU up to 703, applied for Discovery.
 
They denied me becuase i have 15 lates,
 
and one judgement ( Judgement was buisness related)
 
 
Next time i guess
