Press and hold the image and it pops up. Not as convenient as running the cursor over it but it works. 


Doesn't work. Android phone, chrome, desktop view


Works on my old HTC 10 running Oreo and Chrome in desktop mode. It’s admittedly not the most elegant way to get to it but it’s there.

Re: Capital One Denied

Sorry you were denied. Discover is great with low income but most lenders would hesitate with income that low. Cap One really doesn’t recon unfortunately. 

Discover It: 19.7k
Amex ED: 18k
Citi DC: 6.7k
Citi Rewards+: 3.6k
Bank Americard: 2.8k

Re: Capital One Denied

I don't know, to each their own but I think I might be just gardening and doing my school work for now.   You have a decent set of cards already.

Hi,

 

This is my 3rd time getting denied for Cap 1's Student Journey card. I tried responding them to reconsider the second time with no luck, so I need some help of how I'll respond.

 

This is the only bullet they put on the denial reasons:

- Based on your credit report from one or more of the agencies on the back of this letter, income is insufficient for requested credit

 

Fico 3 Score: EX 679

Red Facts:

- Length of time account

- Time since most recent account open

- Too many accounts w/ balance

- Too many inquiries last 12 months

 

My income is $5772. It would be more but I am a full-time college student. 

 

 

So at the moment, I honestly got no idea of what should I write back to them to reconsider because they pretty much denied me on the income (same income I put on Discover's student and was approve).


It’s time to let it go. 3 times being denied displays desperate, credit-seeking behavior. You don’t want to be that guy or gal. Wait until your income is about $7.5K and try again.

Re: Capital One Denied

I really wish we'd ease up on words such as "desperate, needy, risky" etc.

 

Most people really dont understand how credit works and that's also how most of us have found this forum. 

 

So, until is possible to differentiate between who's truly " desperate" vs. uninformed and eager, it's best to offer advice without excessive judgement.

There is a difference between saying  someone is “displaying” desperate credit seeking behavior vs. saying that someone is truly desperate. Personally, I would never say someone “is” desperate because I don’t know their specific circumstances.

 

But, I know for me, when I first joined, I did not see this advice as excessive judgment. I viewed it as learning; and honestly, I was grateful. Otherwise, I would not have learned, or more importantly, taken seriously things like breakout fraud or other credit-seeking behaviors that are deemed risky.

Re: Capital One Denied

The other reason to stop, aside from displaying risky credit-seeking behavior, is that OP is burning triple-HPs for denials every time. Three denials is 9 burned HPs. I wouldn’t want to waste that many...
