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...

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.

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