    First of all. Thank you for all your tips and advice you give us…( My wife and I are going to South Africa in May on points with AA… Yes we are going on Qutar Q-Suites. Can’t wait….
    I just got turned down by Capital 1 for the Credit card…..Here are the reasons given..
    1 Based on your CR from Equifax, too few or no revolving accounts have a balance.
    2. Based on you CR from Trans Union, there are too many new revolving accounts.
    3 based on your application info, income is insufficient for requested credit…
    Now the facts.Income is 45k for me and together with spouse 105k
    I adhere to the 5/24 rule. ( only 3 in last 24 mo.)
    House is paid for…
    Hard hits 2 b4 this week.Trans Union 2017,2018..2/26/19 from Cap1 (3 total)
    Equifax; 2017,2018..2/26/19 from Cap1. 2/18 from Chase…(4 Total . )
    This drives me crazy. 2 hard hits and no CC….( BTW I was turned down by Chase Business this week also….)( I’ll send to info later if thats alright..
    I called Cap. 1 resolution line to no avail….
    I have about 30 CC accounts that I pay off every month.
    The new accounts I have are
    Barclays 1yr 6 mo
    Chase. 10 mo
    CITI. 10 mo
    Any advice would help me….
    Thanks for your time
