Re: Chase Freedom Got Declined after Prequalified

Wow... That's persistence. Stories like this make me that much more thankful that I got an instant online approval for my Chase Freedom (and that's because they pulled EX, which was the most favorable of my reports at the time).

 

Congrats man.

Re: Chase Freedom Got Declined after Prequalified

Thanks guys!!!! Without your help this is not possible.. I was so worried that I have to wait for around a year to apply again, because thats what the first 4 people said... Can anyone tell me how long I should wait for applying CSP, because I will be traveling to Asia this December and I need a good travel card.

Well done! Recon recon recon! Your next goal of a CSP will need a little help ( they like $5k CLs) but who says it can't be done? The BOA secured, when does it unsecure?

Re: Chase Freedom Got Declined after Prequalified

I wouldn't jump the gun on apping for the CSP card considering how many times you had to recon with the freedom. Lenders like to see a lot of good payment history before they consider extending a second line of credit to you and your second credit line will be significantly lower. You may want to consider doing a PC with your Freedom card but IMO, the freedom card is the best card in their line up.

The truth is out there...

Re: Finally Chase Freedom approved for $1200

use the freedom for about a year, and your chances for the CSP should be good if you keep utilization and everything thing else on your CR.

Use your Freedom a lot too. Chase likes to see heavy usage.

Re: Finally Chase Freedom approved for $1200

You could always wait until your secured graduates in Dec/Jan. then it would be a perfect time to ask for a CLI on your new one too - 6-8 mos of history.
