BCE

So I decided to try something to see if I could get into the AE family.  I applied and put a balance transfer off my Chase Slate.  Instead of getting a decline. I need to call to give more info.

 

The amount transferred was only 100.00

 

 

Any thoughts on if this sounds like it will work?  

 

Thank you

Same response here. Too much effort required to read that. Smiley Tongue

Re: BCE

Those last couple posts were painful to even decipher...LOL.

 

At any rate OP, just give it some time and you can check the status page for the progress of your BCE app.  Hopefully a good outcome.

Mods- let me know if I am hijacking.

 

I'd call OP.

 

You bring up an interesting point- If you are borderline, I wonder if transfering a balance give you better chances of approval?

A BT in it of itself does not increase any chances for approval.  It's all based on creditworthiness amongst a few factors.
