Approved for Chase Sapphire!!!!

Oh god, I have been pitifully pursuing this card for two years and finally got approved tonight! :smileyvery-happy: I've had a Freedom with them for about a year but they wouldn't budge on raising my credit limit above $1000. A few months ago, AMEX gave me a Blue Cash Everyday and raised my limit to $4k about a month ago. I pulled my credit score around then to it was at 725, the highest it's ever been, and waited to apply until I had my stuff together and paid off.

 

Took the plunge and got approved with a $5k limit, which is pretty nice to me! Capital One is officially out of my wallet with their measly $1250 line, Freedom is probably going to leave as well with the even worse $1000 line, so I'm left with my $1500 Discover, $4k AMEX and $5k Sapphire! I'm 20 and in the midst of college so I'm pretty happy with how I've been taking care of my credit cards. No baddies, no missed payments, and now I'm in with three great companies.

Re: Approved for Chase Sapphire!!!!

Thank you very much! I feel much more like an adult without those punny low lines, but now I need to convince Discover to be generous with me.
