Not totally sure because the wording sounds like it's finding an offer that was mailed to you... My partner has never gotten anything outside of BT offers for his Freedom that he NEVER uses... but low and behold Slate was offer and was instantly approved so not sure about instant SP or already in system.  I have gotten 3 others to do it also and had no offers... so hoping others will get offers and actually apply and see if we can trust this...

Makes me miss the BofA one that use to exist.  Not sure on the APR either... He got 16% which is tier 2 based on the APR's available... I find that annoying that APR tier is "Based on our credit review" right? so his credit is good enough for $9k but doesn't qualify for 11%? won't effect us for 15 months but still!!!

Just tried it and was offered a CSP with 40,000 bonus points if I spend $3000 in 3 months and a Slate with no balance transfer fees and 0% for 15 months. I already have a Freedom.

Re: Chase Pre-approval site - something new?

I don't know how much I would go by the pre-approval site. When the page launched a few days ago it showed no offers...but I applied for the Freedom and got an Instant Approval. So it might be based on a prior soft pull or just hit and miss. I lean more towards hit and miss as none of my reports show any soft inquiries from Chase or First something which is also Chase.

Why is Slate tempting? Is it supposed to be a prime card?

It's from Chase so I consider it prime. It's tempting because I'm addicted to applying...and having that pre approval makes me want to apply even more. :smileytongue:

i haven't had any offers from chase mailed to me lately (so the system apparently didn't find an offer that was mailed out). 

i think it's a SP (there was a disclaimer box saying it wouldn't affect credit score), and the system "recognized" that i already had a chase freedom (as that was not offered to me).  I was offered the Slate at 11% interest. (didn't apply, though)

 

what i've read on this forum is that the CL is often based on income, while APR is based on credit score (including, i would guess inq's, aaoa, lates, etc).  don't know how true that is, but that's what i've read here. 


BofA visa $9.4k ... BofA Cash Rewards visa sig $10k ... Cap 1 Venture1 visa sig $10k ...
Chase Freedom visa $10k ... Macy's $1.5k ... Macy's Amex $5k ... Sam's Club $6.3k

Re: Chase Pre-approval site - something new?

If you look closely here.... https://creditcards.chase.com/?view=d

 

There is two boxes to click on...one says "Find Special Offers" and one say "Check Mailed Offers".

 

I got an offer for Slate when i find my special offers but i dont get any mailed offers...so it seems like its an actual soft inquiry.

$1200 $1250 $4250 NPSL $5300 $1350 $3000

$6050 $5000 $10500 $2416 $6500 $3000

Correct - a Soft Pull occurs whenever selecting the Find Special Offers option.

 

Credit Limit is set based on income and overall credit profile.

 

APR is based on credit score and overall credit profile which may include established product relationship with Chase (as applicable) including internal risk score factors.

Re: Chase Pre-approval site - something new?

OMG, I just did it and I was preapproved for a Freedom and a CSP with the Freedom offering 12.99% APR and 0% for 15 months. This after getting my Cash+ and BCP and while I got decent limits I got pretty bad APRs. But what's even more amazing is I've tried calling Chase's executive office several times because I've had a Slate with a toy limit for several years now that I've tried to get CLIed and PCed to a Freedom and I've been denied multiple times. So maybe if I call them now I can reference the preapproval.....?
