Yeah, who wants 40% + 5% cash back on purchases anyways?

 

Or wait, how much extra can their online shopping mall give in cash back?

 

But no, you're right... Wait for something better.

Saying no--but I have the feeling I'm going to kick myself later.

Just go for it if you think your odds of getting approved are pretty good unless you're planning to buy a house or something.

When I opened my checking account with Chase, the banker told me I should apply for the Freedom too but I got denied. This was like 7 months ago. I tried again 5 months later and got approved.

So you never know until you give it a go. Best case scenario: you get approved, get a decent limit and bam! Free $200 bucks. Sounds like a pretty darn good deal to me.

So Apinzon2374 is not in the loop yet... Ummm how many TLs have we ummm... opened in the last 3-4 months?  Oh wait, there's even the inquiries!!!!  Oh no, and the AAoA!!!!  I'd hate to venture and explain to Chase the recent spree... in a constructive fashion of course...  :smileytongue:

I'm pretty sure I'd get it--but in my case an approval could possibly be worse than a denial.

Well, I think more along the lines of AA if any lenders start to see an abnormal flurry of opened TLs - of course it's always a YEMV situation.  The question really becomes, given the last number of recently opened tradelines, where does the line get drawn?  From an U/W perspective, it's starting to look desperate or borderline on overextension.
