Pulled EX for me, tough one to get... incidentally I called customer service the other day to request the difference in miles between promotions... it was 30k in May when I applied... no chance in hell I figure but worth a shot

I got my SW card last summer when they had the 2 free flights promo. It took, if I remember, a little over 2 weeks to get an answer on my app. Chase typically doesn't give instant approvals on their airline cards. I did get approved for the $5k Siggy card. The free flights are a pretty good deal as it only requires one transaction to have them posted to your RR account.

Do you mind me asking what your credit was like at the time?

They pulled EQ and I think my score was around 750 with 1 INQ in the previous 6 months and possibly 3 in the previous 12. My util is always less than 9% and usually 1-2%. I also had 3 other Chase cards at the time. I do know now they are very INQ sensitive. so it you have a lot it'll probably be a deal breaker.

Thought I would bump this. Chase is offering 50k points + 10k additional for balance transfers. Can be used for Amazon gift cards (100 points = $1). I pulled the trigger on this and was instantly approved for $5k. I'll just balance transfer my Amex to this card, and use the $600 Amazon credit towards the new receiver Ive been looking at I dont really fly SW often but the points are a great deal even if you only keep the card a year.
Before you ask, they pulled EX, my FICO is about 710, one paid collection from 6 years ago, lowest credit card limit $500 highest $20k, one auto loan reporting, one motorcycle loan reporting. AAoA is 4 years.

I would make a new thread with this info as a lot of people may not catch your post down at the bottom of an older thread.
