South West Chase approval --- glad I was sitting down.

I will be buying 6 round trip tickets by the end of the year and figured, Lets get an airline card and get at least one the tickets for the anual fee. Found a 50,000 pts bonus offer, so figured I would go for it, was worried about having to call in and move credit limit from one of my other 4 chase accounts to make the deal happen, but nope it won't be necessary. This one totally blew me away, I was shocked when I got my CSP approval at 10k, but I couldn't believe what popped up. Approved $20,000 That is a hell of a lot of South West flights.

 

AAoA is 2years, last card 4 months ago Chase CSP and AmTrak,  UTL is high at 22%.  7 inq's on EQ over the last 2 years 1 or 2 in the last year I think. No baddies.

Wow! Congrats! I just applied this morning and got approved with the same 50,000 bonus miles offer. I didnt receive nearly as much as your CL but getting approved is a start for me.
