CSP instant approval

I haven't posted on here while gardening my cards. Only lasted a month when I finally gave in and decided to apply for the Chase Sapphire Preferred. I surprisingly got it without any previous 5,000 CL cards. Thank you dishanntaray and others for all the advice on my numerous posts about this card. can't wait to hold the aluminum in my hands. so happy right now!

 

also question: I got a signup bonus with the chase freedom and on the details for the Sapphire Preferred it states that the 40,000 points is only available to new cardmembers. does this mean i cannot get the bonus?

Re: CSP instant approval

Congrats; the CSP is my day to day card and I love it.

 

You will get the bonus. However, you must meet the minimum spend which is $3,000 in 3 months--unless they changed it recently, again. Enjoy the card!

 i'm not sure about the limit yet, I'm going to call them now to see if they can overnight it to me. and my experian fico was 739 last month and my transunion fako is 750.

 

EDIT: $8,000. 3-5 business days but CSR said more likely 10 days. I cannot wait that long!

Re: CSP instant approval

If it was an instant approval, wasn't the CL shown on the approval page/in the accounts under your Chase login? Just curious - Have never had it not show.
