Called Chase about CSP....Glad I Did!

So, I thought I'd share my convo with Chase credit rep with everyone. I was curious about a few known but unofficial prerequisites. I'll just list'em out below.

 

 

1. Credit profile with CC w/ 5k limits. --- Chase rep confirmed that is taken into consideration for approvals.

 

2. Being a Chase customer--- Rep also confirmed this is another aspect which increases approval odds.

 

3. Annual Income--- Rep also confirmed this weighs heavily on approval odds IF baddies present i.e Lates or AAOA is not up to snuff.

 

 

Gotta say I was very surprised with the honesty or perhaps how forthcoming she was regarding these unofficial prerequisite's. I have some 30day late baddies that are over 1 1/2 years old which stops me from app'ing, I meet all the other 'criteria'. Oh and this is my trophy card.

Re: Called Chase about CSP....Glad I Did!

You'll have to remember that AMEX has it's own internal risk score.  Your external CRA score could be high but sometimes that just doesn't cut it for AMEX.  I know, I applied for a BCP last year and was told I have had too many INQs and my that my internal risk score was too low.  I will try for the TrueEarnings once I get my house closed.  By then 6 months would have passed since my last app.

Re: Called Chase about CSP....Glad I Did!

I got the green in Nov. I think its because amex must have used the last soft pull which was in january and I had high util. I looked up my experian report and it hasnt showed any recent SP's. I really want the CSP and I am waiting my reports to update for that. Im just hoping the lates from 07 arent a problem
