I got several promo apps for Alaska's BoA credit card in the mail over the past few months. The promo is the same as the one on DansDeals (70k mile sub @3k spend + companion @6k spend).

I applied via Dan's link but got denied (which I found strange because my credit score is ~770. I heard that if you don't have a relationship with BoA this is something that can happen.

What I find surprising is if I was preapproved with an offer code, how did I get denied now and if I reapply right now with the offer, will I get declined due to the earlier approval?

Has anyone tried applying with a mail pre approval after getting denied on an application via a general or DansDeals rec?

Did you call recon? I was just denied and got instantly approved once I called recon. They just asked me to confirm my income and then approved me.

I was declined for the Alaska Business card. Any data points?
Possibly because I got 3 personal BoA cards in the past few months.
