If you currently have a Chase account, log in and it should appear right below your other account.  That's how it happened with me.

The time needed seems to vary a bit with Chase. When I applied for my United card, I got my CL via the automated system about 24 hours after my instant approval. My Ritz CL took a week to be available after another instant approval. I'd suggest checking once a day until the message changes. The 2 week response is standard until your CL is available. I got the same thing until it changed over.

Re: chase instant approval but..

I just applied for a Sapphire Preferred and got the "needs further review" screen. I called the automated line to check application status about 30 minutes later and found out I was approved and the message gave me credit limit as well. I pressed "0" and spoke with someone who confirmed approval and limit. 

Try calling the automated line at 800-436-7927, follow prompts for new application. 

 

Good luck!

Hey MrShush!

I've read on another thread that Chase does the recommendation for approval and cl to co-branded partner then ultimately partner approves limit.  Thus the delay in CL.  I don't know if this is true but food for thought.  I read this about both Ritz and Marriott.  Wish I could confirm.  :smileyhappy:

Re: chase instant approval but..

Thanks for the info all!

 

I've checked my accounts with Chase and no sign of anything new and I called earlier and same message. If it is indeed true that there is lag for whatever reason with the co-branded offerings, that makes me feel a little better. I really only applied for the bonus offer--up to 7 free nights after 1K spend in 90 days.

 

I do currently have 3 Chase cards: Freedom Sig., Slate, and JP Morgan Select.

Re: chase instant approval but..

Don't worry! It'll come soon enough :smileyhappy: when I applied for CS it took 5 whole (long) days for me to receive an approval notice! No baddies or negs on my report, but they did pull experian which had 2 recent inqs and 4 total in 2 years. Also had a Freedom for a little less than a year w/ $7000 CL, instant approval. FINALLY saw it pop up on my Chase account the morning of the 5th day with a CL of $10000!

 

Guess they do a lot of manual reviews for whatever reason! Oh wells!

MRe: chase instant approval but..

Manual reviews make me sad.

 

I was thrilled to see the 'Congratulations, your application has been instantly approved!' message, but now I'm bummed.
