First app spree!! Updated 100% success

Using the great wealth of information that this forum has provided I decided to try my luck at an app spree for the first time. Here are my results:

 

PenFed Platinum Rewards - Approved - 5000 CL

Amex BCP- Approved - 3500 CL

Chase Sapphire Preferred - Decision Pending, called backdoor number and was told that it is waiting for verification but that dept was closed. Calling back tomorrow. Approved - 5000 CL

PSECU CLI - Approved - went from 1000 to 7500

 

Overall I'm very happy but I'd be a lot happier if I didn't have to wait until tomorrow to find out about the CSP. Because it is waiting for verification does that mean I'm basically approved and they just need to confirm employment or income?

Re: First app spree!!

Thanks! I wasn't sure how it would turn out because I just apped for the NFCU card 2 weeks ago. I owe all of my success to this forum. I have learned so much in such a small amount of time.

Re: First app spree!!

Chase is great for recon. When i got my CSP I was flat out denied but I called the recon line about 8 times and got denied every time until I got someone that gave me a chance and approved me for 6k CL so I hope you get it but even if you don't give th recon line a chance.

Re: First app spree!!

Just got off the phone with the Chase verification department. After answering a few questions I got the good news. Approved for a 5000 CL! Thanks again to this forum. My first app spree and I had 100% success on some really nice cards with nice limits.
