So after finding out my wife was going to be over 5/24 with chase once a recent approval of mine would subsequently make her an AU on an account(navy federal CLOC) and disqualify her for 5/24. We decided to go on somewhat of an app spree before going to the garden for at least 6 months. Other than SP CLI.
EX Fico 8 764. 4 INQ (3 in last 12 months) 8 months oldest account 7 months AAOA. 3 CC accounts 13/3300 UTIL. 2 installment loans reporting less than 9%.
Her EQ/TU are frozen while waiting out hippa process.
Chase Freedom no HP
We will notify you within 30 days message. Called and spoke with the verification department. CSR said that she must unfreeze her equifax as they cannot pull her experian instead. No big deal. We won't be doing that till the hippa process is finished. So probably denial. Unless they are able to pull EX somehow.
Discover IT HP EX
Instant approval 4k
Bank of America Cash Rewards HP EX
Applied for the Cash rewards card. Denied but offered 99/500 secured version instead with $39 annual fee. Accepted wanted to get her foot in the door.
Citi Double Cash HP EX
Instant denial. Called app status number and gave main reasons for denial limited credit history, to many inquiries. Called and spoke with CSR on app status number. Very nice, however informed us because it was an instant denial they are not allowed to reconsider. That we would get a letter in the mail stating the reasons for denial and we should take it up with EX. No idea if this is true or not but he did seem genuine. Not sure if there is anything else we can do here to influence some sort of approval.
So all in all 2/4 I guess? Technically 2/3 because Chase didn't even pull EX. So no application at all.
In January she has had amazing success.
Amex BCE instant approval 10k
Discover IT Instant approval 4k
Bank of America secured cash rewards 99/500
Running to the garden now.
Congrats to you and your wife for some very special approvals! She snagged some really nice cards, with decent SL's! Not a thin file anymore! Enjoy!
