Chase Sapphire Preferred and Chase Ink Bold Approvals

Applied for Chase Sapphire Preferred and Chase Ink Bold today.  Sapphire was instant approval.  Ink Bold needed further processing, but I called the business recon line and they were able to push the application through after asking a few questions.

 

Initial CL on Sapphire is $29,700.  I was pleasantly surprised by that because Chase only gave me $5500 on my Freedom when I applied last April, and that is where it still sits.  This is now my highest CL, exceeding my previous highest limit which was my Amex SPG at $27K. 

 

Scores in signature aren't necessarily correct.  My TU and EX scores are old, and I paid my utilization down further since my last EQ update.  I canceled Score Watch so I don't really know what my current EQ is, but I would guess that EQ is back up near 700, probably a little bit shy of that, which typically means my TU is at or above 700 and EX is around 740.  But I'm guessing.    

 

 


Starting Score: ~500 (12/01/2008)

Nice cards and CLs!

 

Did Chase ask why you wanted both?  I was considering apping for the Ink Bold, but already have the CSP.

Re: Chase Sapphire Preferred and Chase Ink Bold Approvals

No, the questions were all focused on the nature of the business, business income, personal income, etc. I have some late payments in 2008. They asked about those. They never asked about the CSP.
