Re: Chase Freedom

There's been at least 10 Chase Freedom approvals this month with scores in the 620-650 range, especially on recon.  Many of the limits have only been in the $500 range, but there's a lot to be said about establishing history and a customer account with a prime lender regardless of the starting card/limit.  Those can always be improved later.

 

Starting Score: EQ 04 561, TU 98 567, EX 98 599 (12/30/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 693, EQ 8 714, TU 8 710, EX 8 724 (05/27/16)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ 04 (01/01/17)

Re: Chase Freedom

not too worried about the initial CL of the Chase card if im approved because im sure its alot easier to get CLI's the Cap1. Hell i bet id have a better at winning the lottery then getting a CLI with Cap1. thats good to hear though. i will definitely recon if denied no

Re: Chase Freedom

Yeah, it looks like they changed the underwriting criteria on the card to be more in line with the DIscover More if not lower in early June or thereabouts.  Some people who I figured were certain to get denied, got cards, and it was a nontrivial number of them too.  Before I had always assumed 660 was the absolute minimum, and even then you'd need to have a fairly attractive report to get in at that level too... also there's been a suspicious lack of Chase Freedom denials in the last month, I think I remember one, and that's got to be some sort of record on this forum in a month to month basis, at least over the last six months I've been actively reading it anyway.

Re: Chase Freedom

Probably sometime tomorrow evening / Tuesday.  Applying on a weekend is problematic if you don't get an instant decision.

explain why it is problematic to apply on a weekend without instant decision? do you think the reason i got the 7-10 day message and not an instand deny is because of applying on a weekend? im pretty new to all this.

Thanks for the help

An instant deny = an instant deny.

 

Instant decisions are all automated through whatever lender's system.  Anything else, is a YMMV based on manual review generally.  The people that do manual reviews, typically don't work weekends, and as such, you can't call them immediately to ask Smiley Wink.

Re: Chase Freedom

I got the 7-10 wait when I apped, kept checking the automated line, kept saying being processed.  So I called the analyst number listed in the backdoor list, was told I had been denied, he reviewed it asked me a few questions and approved me for 800.  I would call that number tomorrow and see how that goes.  YMMV= Your Mileage May Vary.
