From Spain to Ireland, TPOL was rejected for both the Iberia card and the Aer Lingus card. With Iberia, I thought the mistake I made was calling recon, something that I used to do well. Almost immediately, I was told that my application was denied for too many recent inquiries. With Aer Lingus, I received the ‘pending decision’ response. This time I didn’t call recon. I waited for the cloverleaf icon to appear on my Chase account. And I waited some more. It never came. What did show up was a thin envelope from Chase stating that I was rejected for having too many recent inquiries. That’s the bad news. The good news is that my other accounts were not shutdown, something that I read is happening to churners. It seems pointless to apply for Chase cards in the foreseeable future. If I become a Chase Private Client, maybe I will try again.
