How many new accounts?
5 in less then a year.
Good luck but I dont think youre gonna have any success
Sit it out in the garden for at least 3-6 months then try again
As for Ashleys, if its on your report, it counts
I was also denied for to many new accounts with two. Lol
Yep same for me back in 9/2018.
PenDread is a joke.
Sounds like they don't like your profile & "too many new credit cards" is just a blow-off excuse.
Strange I am like 30/24 and got a new penfed card a month or two ago.. Tons of new accounts and inquiries granted score is around 790 and use PenFed as my primary FI and already have had a card with them for 4 years or so and auto loans and paid off personal loans etc.. Appears if one has a long standing relationship with them they will look over new credit and inquiries and all that fun stuff. They have treated me very well. They don't want to just be used for CC's like most CU's and want a relationship first. Years are they were near impossible to get in or a card with as had to have super prime credit then they loosened up for a few years and now they are going back to being more conservative. Certainly a new account/inquiry YMMV scenario as mentioned above. They are a very good FI if you are in with them. They certainly are no NFCU where they will hand out 10-25k limits to anyone with a pulse that is eligible though either.
Not all CU's like the same things in members as I have been shot down be other CU's that others have had no issues with what-so-ever with alot lower scores and incomes than myself. One can never compare two profiles although they seem similiar as scores alone along with income, DTI, etc doesn't tell the whole story of why someone will be approved/denied.
I think this is an example of something that happens quite a bit, in which the reasons they print on the letter were not really important in the decision. Your credit report will generate positive and negative "reasons" when someone calculates a score. It's just a standard way of stating the things that raised or lowered your score. You may have dozens of "reasons" and the letter may simply show the first one listed or the one with the highest point impact, but, the decision may not have even been based on FICO score points.
I think people often end up focusing on or worrying about whatever reason(s) they print when those aren't genuinely the reasons you were denied. But I could be wrong ...
