Well, on Friday I did my latest AOR. Four months since my last. Was skipping Chase this time to focus on others, try to leave 6 months between my Chase applications. But then... on Monday I decided I had to go for the Chase Southwest Business card since the 50,000 points offer was going to go away (apparently) and I wanted to hit the companion pass this year. I'd stupidly not applied for both Southwest cards at the same time in December. Anyway, of course all the credit inquiries had hit my account by the time I applied on Monday, even though oddly my Experian score hadn't changed yet, and so after I got pending I called into the recon line and they denied me for too many inquiries. Crap. Wondering if I should bother trying again and seeing if the next person at Chase feels any differently. Good credit, pay all my bills on time every month, etc. But yup I've applied for like 12 or more cards in the last year, and 4 more on Friday. So to the extent that they can see that I feel like I'm just wasting my time. I can move lots of credit around from other Chase cards, but the person I talked to said that wouldn't help if the reason was too many inquiries. Any suggestions? Try calling again once or twice? Wait 3 months and try again if the offer comes around again?
