Re: Chase Freedom - Visa or MC

I will be putting little through it now that I got my AMEX. The BCP will definately be my primary card with the freedom being second, or first on rotating categories.

I do need a solid third with no AF for rotating in ones in a while. I will probably wait till my cards report then go for the US Cash+ by the end of the year and I'll be happy. I'll probably stay in the garden for a long time.
Fico Scores: TU 734 (08/12/2012) and EQ 716 (12/08/2012)

AMEX BCP $10,000 (opened 09/2012) - Citi TYP $6500 (opened 12/2012) Chase Freedom $1500 (opened 09/2012)

GMAC Mortgage $181,000 (opened 07/2011) - Car Loan $18,000 (opended 01/2011)

Against good sound advice that I got here, I just applied..... I couldn't wait for some reason. I've been working hard to repair my credit and being approved for the BCP, I went for it.

Just got approved, $1500. Not too bad, I probably would have gotten a higher limit when my BCP reported, but oh well. I'm happy to finally get a Freedom.

That's higher than either of my Cap1 cards and I'm sure it will grow faster than Cap1



You may have been declined with AMEX showing because of new account....
