Chase Slate Good Sign??

Soo i decided to app for a chase slate card to take advantage of the 0% on balance transfers so i could get the balance off of a higher interest rate card.  Got the usual 7-10 day message....Called the back door number and talked to the nicest lady ever.  Idk if its just me but i feel as if i have better luck with women then i do when guys answer.  But she told me my app was denied for recent inquiries...i explained them to her and she put me on hold for about 3 minutes came back on the phone and said we just need to get a copy of your ID and your social security card to verify you are who you say you are.....So i faxed them over and she said i should hear something soon...SOOO is this a good sign?? Think my chances of approval are good???

I don't think they would try to verify your identity if they weren't planning in approving, but that's just my opinion. Good luck! Let us know how it goes!

I would say your chances are very good!  I was originally denied by Chase and I called to recon.  After talking to the nice lady ( <-----haha), I later received a call to verify my identity.  Approved.  It's like they won't verify your identity unless they're giving you their card - from my own personal experience and from what I've read.

 

Please let us know what happens!
