Approved for Chase Freedom!

I've been hesitant to apply for any credit card for so long, but finally went for it...and approved with $3,000 cl!

 

This is an accomplishment because I've built my score from 400s to 680. (Equifax) over the past seven or so years. I made poor decisions in college and had to slowly build it back up. I'm pretty much debt free besides a small student loan. Actually, considering a purchasing a home within the next year or so. 

 

Anyway, thought I'd share. Smiley Happy

Re: Approved for Chase Freedom!

I was shocked when I called and she said the $3,000 with my score. I'm basically debt free with the exception of a student loan and have no plans to build much of a balance on any credit card, but was encouraging! I've applinothing almost nothing during the seven years, so maybe that paid off to my advantage.
