If you got approved that quickly for a Chase card you should actually try for the Discover IT card right away, as it compliments in some ways the Freedom card on the 5% cash back categories. 

 

Just because you have never been pulled by TU or Experian doesn't mean you don't have a score there.  The accounts you do have and have had do report to more than one bureau!

 

If you do try the Discover card and they deny you, then simply call them for a recon and ask if they would even consider you for a low limit.  I got denied by Discover and through the recon got the card for a $1000 limit.  I did not get approved for the Freedom and had to recon that too.  The fact that you got the card without a recon might suggest that you have a better opportunity.  It might have simply been who you were applying with before as to the reasons why you did not get approved. 

It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.....
Always follow these rules: Only take a HP for a new account. Always use the best rewards card for that reward category. Don't close a card unless you know you really should. Never use more than 35% of a credit limit. Recon as much and as best you can. Use the introductory period to the best advantage. Get the signup bonus. Whenever possible PIF or balance transfer so you pay less in interest. Never give an excellent rating when it is actually the norm. Always look for a discount as more is always better.
Always accept candy from strangers because they have the best candy or from people you know have good candy.

Let me also state that i have been with my current job (Publix Supermarkets) For 9+ years so that may have something to do with it as well. The thing that shocks me the most is it was definately not my income because all i make a year is 26308.00.. Plan to take very good care of these cards and not screw up.. 26 years old here

Re: 5 Months of Building. Anything i qualify For?

@OP - Are you currently rebuilding, or did you have any pre-existing line of credit "i.e a loan"? Or are you just new to credit? I got denied the other day for a Discover IT card couple weeks ago, so I'm curious. I think after my next statement, I might try to take a stab at something. Congratulations on your endeavors thus far!

Rebuilding...been out of the game for a minute. Now, after suffering I'm back with greater wisdom. Scores: Currently @ around 6 teens to 20's, across all three EQ,TU, EX

Re: 5 Months of Building. Anything i qualify For?

Reading that you got the Chase Freedom with that limit is a shocker with so little history. I read of people getting denied with more history than you and even with recon they end up with very low CL. This does tempt me and makes me wanna apply, but I'll just apply my itch cream and wait til January to do my little app spree.

@Warjar, 

I am assuming that since i got such a great limit with chase that they pulled me Equifax score which is a 708 FICO. I had a 1500.00 loan from badcock 3 years ago and paid that off in about 1 year and 6 months. Then all i had after that was a Capital one Secured visa card initially i only got a 251 credit limit but increased it to 316 about 3 weeks ago. I do not have a TU FICO yet because my TU report is so limited (5 Months) because badcock does not report to TU (Atleast where i live in florida).
