Is credit card application getting rejected frustrating? Don't worry; you will have a chance to reapply. You can't reapply as soon as your application is rejected. There are certain things that you need to keep in mind, while reapplying for a credit card. If you simply reapply, there are chances of your application getting rejected again.

 Tips to keep in mind while reapplying for a credit card

1. Wait to reapply

Do not reapply for a credit card as soon as it is rejected, instead, wait for some time. If you reapply immediately, your credit card application will be rejected, second time as well. The waiting period varies from person to person and depends on other factors such as your profile, credit score and so on.

According to expert advice, you should wait for at least six months, before reapplying. If your credit card is rejected because of a poor credit score, you should reapply only after your credit score improves.

2. Understand why your application was rejected

If your credit card application is rejected, there will be some reason for it. So, before reapplying for a credit card, get to know the reason for the rejection. This will help you prepare well, the next time. The most common reasons for rejection of a credit card application are poor credit score, too many loans and credit cards, delay in the EMI or credit card bill payments. Without knowing the reasons for a rejection you won't be able to fix the problem.

3. Improve your financial condition

You can prevent your credit card application getting rejected for the second time, by improving your financial condition. Your financial condition can be improved by understanding what is going wrong and then fixing it. For instance, if you are spending a lot with your credit card, stop using the credit card. If you do not pay your credit card bills and EMI's on time, chuck this habit and pay your bills on time.

The IndianMoney App reminds you to pay your credit card bills and EMI's on time.

4. Apply for the right card

Do not apply for just any credit card; instead apply for the credit card which suits your profile and needs. Banks offer different credit limits for your profile. But, you should always go for the credit card which falls in your range.

5. Check your credit report

Banks check your credit score before providing you any kind of loans or a credit card. As I said earlier, your credit card application will be rejected, if you have a poor credit score. So, you have to check your credit score before applying for a credit card. You can also check your credit score on WhatsApp.
