Chase Sapphire Preferred Success!

[ Edited ]

So I applied last Friday and at first got rejected because I had just gotten a credit increase on my Chase Freedom up to $5k. I kept calling and calling and then the representatives insisted that I could not get the card because I had three cards added to my profile this year (2012):  Chase Freedom, Amex Zync, and Amex Gold. I was honestly losing all hopes of getting the CSP card because (1) I am only 19 years old and my credit history is less than 2 years and (2) I've just had an increase on Chase Freedom like 3 weeks prior. However, I kept calling. Finally, while waiting at the train station to head home, I called again and they finally gave it to me! Took me 3 calls! So, anyone who is having the same problem, just keep calling! 

Chase Freedom $5k, Chase Sapphire Preferred
Amex Zync, Amex Gold
Macys $400, L&T $1500, Saks Fifth $1600

Congrats! I'm in the same boat... I'm young & only have 2 years of credit. I was already approved for the Freedom in March... I want to apply for the Sapphire Preffered and the Hyatt... I don't know if I will be approved :smileyfrustrated: Congrats again!

Garden Mode... kind of... sort of (•‿•)
