Chances on CSP?

Re: Chances on CSP?

Seen others on here get the CSP with 35k income but I'm assuming their files were not as thin.  I def agree your borderline, would have helped if you had a prior relationship with chase.  Inq's will not be a factor and Amex CC won't be a factor either because Amex always pulls Ex.  I can see them pull more than one CR, , if it is what you want go for it. If you don't get an approval recon.  Your Inq's are low so one more won't hurt.

BOA: 8.9k
CSP: 5k
Discover: 5k
Citi TY Preferd: 5k
Wally: 5k
JCP: 4.9k
citiForward: 4.7k
ChaseFreedom: 4.5k
DFS: 2k

That will help as well. I'm thinking the OP should get approved.

Re: Chances on CSP?

if you have your freedom for a while now you should be approved.

Do you need another card with AF though when you already have the BCP? I'm not trying to be your nanny, but if you won't be travelling much, or can't charge much to the card due to your income, you will be wasting the 1-year free AF chance essentially.

 

But it's a nice card. Overall I think you should be fine.

Worst case scenario you will have to call recon and I think you still should be fine. Like other's said it's most likely going to be borderline approval with 2-3 pulls, but if you really want this card and can justify it, go for it.


Best of luck!

Re: Chances on CSP?

I think OP has a decent chance for approval at 35k income..

 

If AF bothers you downgrade to normal sapphire after 13 months.. Also you get the 40k bonus points...

 

Inq's are low too so wouldn't hurt the score much

Re: Chances on CSP?

Well my main question is has your uodated cl hit your cr's yet for citi? While other are suggesting adding the 15k fo rincome that more or less really is not actually income.

Re: Chances on CSP?

Thanks for all the help! I don't think I'd really find much use from it right now with my low income and being still in school, but i wanted to get it to harvest enough points for a nice vacation, since i've heard abotu their 1:1 mile exchange! However, I think i might just wait a month or two before trying, since i only recently got the amex bcp.

 

thanks again!

+1. I don't think you'll find much use of it either with your current income. Other than the signup bonus, you simply don't earn enough (and therefore can't spend enough) to offset the AF. If you do get approved, I'd downgrade to a no-AF card or cancel after the first year.

Re: Chances on CSP?

from the information i've provided, do you think it'd be worth the hard pull to increase the limit on my chase freedom (500$) atm, its been about a year. Or is the HP not worth it and I should save it to apply for another card?
