Congrats, did you call Chase? Multiple apps with them can put them in limbo unless you call and verify it's you.

Ebates is a tougher one it seems they look for a minimum 720 FICO.

EDIT Just called for recon, was denied, heh. Still a good day!

Hi all!

 

I asked for help in a previous post and had my app spree today! My EQ fico updated to a lovely 669 after one of my cards reported to $0, so I hit the go button!

 

The YAY!

American Express Green Card - APPROVED! NPSL 

I only applied green because HELLO annual fees. I don't know if I'll use it enough to justify the higher cards right now. Especially since.....

 

Chase Freedom - APPROVED $3,500

 

(edit to add NEW approval!)

Discover IT - APPROVED $10,000

 

And the meh 

Ebates Visa (GE backed) - no immediate decision

 

Amazon Visa (Chase backed) - reconned/denied

 

 

All in all, a fantastic day! I am now a member of the Amex family, and have a Chase Freedom -- wow!


Congrats on your nice app spree!!!

 

FTW, Chase doesn't like it when you app for two of their cards in a short time span (especially with baddies on file in the last couple of years). Since you have the Freedom, Recon at this point for the card will up with a denial 90% of the time (seeing your CS and baddies listed)

$13.5K$7K6K$15K$5K1K
$5K

Thank you! This is good information to have, and completely understandable. I have some relationships to start fostering!

 

I honestly shop Amazon a lot and just wanted an extra perk for it, but I will make do for now. I should get 5% back for Amazon in Q4 anyway, thanks to my current lineup!
