Re: Credit Cards that Blacklist

Chase and Citi and US Bank will all put you on the naughty-not-nice list for 10+/- years. As far as major primary lenders, Cap-1 and Discover are probably the most forgiving letting you back in. 

 

I'm not talking about secondary cobranded lenders like Comenity or Sync and certainly not the sub-prime fee magnet cards like Credit One or First Premier.  

 


Citi is like 23+ years..  I went Chp 13 on them back in 1990 for around 2500 on an American Advaantage card.  I applied for a citi card in 2014.  I applied online, completed the app, hit submit. It sat there for a few seconds, it looked it was going to get approved. A rep came online during the process, wanted to verify my full name and something else.  It immediately went denied.  I haven't applied for a citi card since. My costco card transferred over to Citi and received two CL increases since to 17000. YMMV ,  but that is my experience with them

Amex

 

11B 1998 which included >$5K Optima card

Never even considered applying again until Oct 2017 but was approved for EDB for $500.  3x cli plus auto cli now has it at $2K.  Received offers for Magnet and Delta Blue in June.  Approved for both at $8.5K and $6K, respectively.  Recent 3x cli on the Magnet and now at $25.5K.  Income $62K and EX 750s.  Nineteen years really does not help with a timeframe but I am proof that you can get back in and with some decent credit lines.  Good luck.

Re: Do you still get blacklisted if you paid off the card

Good Day,

 

How does blacklisting work do you still get blacklisted if you paid off the card.

 

Thanks

 


You should not be blacklisted after paying off the card, if it was paid to the original creditor and not a JDB.

Re: Do you still get blacklisted if you paid off the card

US Bank IIB 8/2010 - denied Gold Checking today and no HP for Cash+.

I pretty much knew I was blacklisted with USB but since it was actually a garden goal and I ended up with no HP, it’s no big loss. Thought I would add the DP for others though. Their memory is definitely long, I am going to remove them as a goal card since including not just a credit card but a reserve line means I’m likely going to be blacklisted a very long time.

If you can’t even get a deposit account, you know you’re on the very naughty list.

What were the reasons for the denial? Are your reports frozen?

Re: Do you still get blacklisted if you paid off the card

I have to wait for the letters in the mail obviously but the checking was outright denied and I got no notification of a HP from any of the three bureaus (they’re a TU puller normally right?)

I believe for banking accounts they do a SP. Are any of your CRA frozen?

Experian is frozen because it’s a whole thing to unfreeze Experian and nobody pulls them — but I just looked and Experian is actually what they pull in Colorado (4 out of 4 on DoC). When I get the letters I’ll update if it was due to Experian being frozen or previous relationship. I will honestly be amazed if they actually tried to pull me although if they did, I will be thrilled that I have a chance because it changes my garden goals.

I bet they tried to pull Experian and you had it on freeze.

I’ll keep the thread updated. I am not as confident as you are that it’s not going to be a previous relationship denial but I will be pleasantly surprised if it’s EX being frozen that caused it. Honestly if I get the gold checking and a credit card, I’ll leave my current bank and go back to US Bank in a heartbeat, I had an excellent relationship with them, just life hit. If it’s not a relationship denial I’ll try again in April.
