CSP Odds

Sorry, another one of these threads I know..but I need the advice!

 

Inquiries: EX 7 EQ 8 TU 1

 

1 in the last 6 months on EX (2/2014)

 

Income. Will probably list 60k. Not sure how much this matters as my friend got a 12k CSP on 12k income. Though his internal score is probably very high.

 

All major derogs will be gone by February 2015. Only thing left will be 2 30 day lates and 1 60 day. Paid collection falling off this month (TU) and already off EX and EQ.

 

I want to get a high starting limit, and then reallocate it after a year to my Freedom, or Freedom and my Amazon, if I decide to keep it. Basically doing it for sign up bonus.

 

Thoughts?

You think it's that high? Is this percentage for instant approval or recon? My income is going to be a little exaggerated. Will this matter if I have to recon? 

 

I want to wait until my AMEX reports the updated CL and until the quarter is over. I'm going to be milking the 5% on restaurants where a good portion of my spends go!

Re: CSP Odds

I think you have a good chance. Chase takes existing relationship into account and in my experience their AF cards have been easier for approval than non-AF.

What do you mean by exaggerated income?

Based on your profile, I, too, think that you have a pretty good chance.  However, what's your actual income?  Don't exaggerate about your income just to be approved for the card if your income is not $60k, because that's straight up lying.  It doesn't matter if your friend got approved for $12k w/ 12k income, that's your friend..not you.

So you think I have a good chance, but it's going to be harder because the CSP has an annuel fee?
