Applied for a Citi HH Reserve and it got declined for too many recent inquiries, I'm trying to get them to pull my EQ for a reconsideration but reps keep telling me that they can't choose the bureau and whatever they pulled is what's used for the recon. I know I've gotten them to pull EQ in the past for a recon and got a card approved that way. Any suggestions?
