Re: Chase Freedom Invitation

 

I received another offer in the mail to apply for Chase Slate Card with 0% intro APR for 9 months, $0 annual fee and limited time $0 intro balance transfer fee.

 

I was wondering if Slate is a better card than Freedom? Which card is easier to get approved for?

 

Thanks!

Walmart Discover $10,000... Chase SW $8,500... Freedom $7,000... CSP $6,000... Amex Delta $3,000... Amex BCP $2,000... Local CU $1,500...

A CSR rep told me both required about the same amount of creditworthiness.

The Slate will be easier for approval since it offers no...

The Slate will be easier for approval since it offers no rewards and is basically good for the 0% interest. In your current situation, you should NOT apply for anymore chase cards right now given the fact that you have only had the Chase SW card for 2 months and already carry a large balance on it. In their eyes, they will see that as a bad thing.

Re: Chase Freedom Invitation

What was your total credit limit and oldest revolving account age when you applied for the Freedom?
