Chase Freedom

 I recently applied and was approved for a Chase Freedom Visa.  Unfortunately, I only recieved the promotional 0% APR for 6 months.  I called the executive office yesterday to request the promotional offer for 15 months as currently advertised.  I also, asked if I could recieved a sp credit check for a credit line increase,  I'm currently at $500 and I can't do anything with that little limit.  I'm literaly, paying my account in full once a week because my limit is so low.  Remind you, my call was placed yesterday and as of today, I haven't heard anything.  I did follow up with the representative today, who was amazingly professional and polite.  He told me he's working on it and he'll get back to me shortly!  I'm so impatient and I hate waiting.

 

What are my odds of getting my credit limit increased and the 0% APR for 15 months?  I recieved the card last month.

I'd say the odds are not bad. I wonder why you got only 6 months, I think Chase has been doing 15 months for awhile now. Odds on your CLI, not so sure about.

I'm a personal banker and do a lot of auto loans serving the Houston area.
I suggest first time car buyers to read the sticky guide in the auto loan section.
I try to check these forums often, but if I missed your post, please feel free to message me with a link to it.

Re: Chase Freedom

I got a SP CLI from $3k to $15k the same day I was approved for my Freedom Visa, but had a very unique set of circumstances.

 

In your case, it would almost certainly by a HP, and your chances of approval would hinge on how good of a case you made for it over the phone.

You got the 6 months 0% deal because of something they didnt like on your reports. Also the low CL. I'd imagine it's going to be another HP for CLI and the chances for them to adjust the promo APR are hopefully good!!!

Re: Chase Freedom

Actually, they did a HP for my CLI request but it was approved for $2000. My APR and promo interest rate remained the same

Re: Chase Freedom

That is great, but it seems odd that you didn't get the 15 months @ 0%.
