Capital one platinum approved... Yes!!!!!

Guys so I dont know lately Ive had some application anxiety lol. So all of you know I recently got a bofa secured with 400 limit, since then i got my scores up to 644 tu and 640 Eq. On saturday i decided to apply for a macys card as i shared with some of you on another post and got denied (super bummer) as i thought this was gonna be a step backwards in scores for me (hopefully not) then tonight i felt brave lol and i applied for a capital one and got approved 300 unsecured !! This is my first card without having to give a deposit, and even though its 300 im excited to have it. Will this account make up for the failure with macys? And why would macys deny and capital one approve lol kinda shocked and excited at the same time

You'll lose a few points due to new inquiries, having the new Cap1 won't make up for the Macys denial scoring wise, but an unsecure card is good!

Macy's pulls Experian, and even though the score you have posted is a Fako, it's still a lot lower than the other two.
