Re: Chase cards…

[ Edited ]

I've been with Chase for going on 5 years now and have had very good customer service with them.  I use them for my main checking account, have a savings, my mortgage and 5 CCs.  The UR program is excellent and the CSP card gives Amex a run for their money.  It's hard nowadays to find a big bank that does a lot of good things right! :smileywink:

CCs: Chase Freedom VS 6.9k, CSP VISA Sg 7k, BofA Amex 12.5k, Discover 10.5k, US Bank Cash+ Visa Sg 12.5k, Macy's Amex 8k/1.5k, Gap Visa 10k, Best Buy 11.1k, Citi TY MC 10.8k, Citi AA Amex 6k, Nordstrom VS 10k, Amex Zync, Costco Amex 12k, BofA CR VS 17k, Amex BCP 9.5k, Amex ED 5k, Sears MC 9k, HD 7k, Target 600, Amazon 7k, US Bank MC 15k, US Airways MC 4k, NFL Visa 4k, Patelco Visa 10k, Penfed PR VS 44.6k, Chase United VS 13k, Chase Marriott VS 8k, Citi Simplicity 13.3k, PayPal MC 5k, Compass Visa 4k, WF VS 14k, FNBO Amex 14.1k, OCCU VISA 15k, TR Visa Sg 13.3k, Capital One QS Visa 11k, FRN MC 13.5k, HSN 4k, Saks WEMC 10k/4k, Chase Ink 18k, Barclay Arrival 10k, Ebates VS 8k, Orbitz VS 9k, NASA V 30k, USBk FP VS 17k

Re: Chase cards…

I like the rewards of the CSP as well as the sign up bonus. The rate is good, but not great. Also the look of the CSP is cool and made out of metal

Agreed about customer service being great! You can also switch around credit limits after having the card for a matter of a few months whereas other lenders make you wait 13 months if I'm not mistaken. Get the CSP, you can't go wrong! Plus no Foreign Transaction Fees.

Re: Chase cards…

Freedom has one of the better cashback programs, plus I bank with Chase. The second I click "submit" when making a payment, it is reflected in my bank account and avail cred.
Also, 0% for bts and prchses for 15 months ?!?! Can't go wrong!!

You may want / need a diversity of lenders in the future.  Trying incredibly hard not to get on my soapbox, but I'd point out you may be disavantaging yourself by this approach of kicking every institution you dislike in the slighest to the curb... you can't approach relationships like that and expect to get much of anywhere, perfect does not exist.

 

I can pretty much guaruntee Chase will annoy you at some point in the future as well.

 


Revelate makes an excellent point regarding diversity.  There was a post a few months ago regarding Chase closing all of the posters CL. From what I remember the poster also had business accounts (Ink and bank accounts) they were affected as well.  Later, they did return some CL but not at all or they were reduced.  

 

YMMV

afbar, why CSP and United? Unless you travel United frequently, and bring lots of luggage, I don't see the point of having both. 

I'm a personal banker and do a lot of auto loans serving the Houston area.
I suggest first time car buyers to read the sticky guide in the auto loan section.

i have no trouble paying BofA online
just curious - does your computer have a particular problem/issue with the BofA website?

 

i agree that chase has great customer service :smileyhappy:


 

no my account just won't let me do it. I have tried on my phone/tablet/computer and it won't let me. Called customer service and they keep saying that they fixed the problem but I still can't do it, even after being with them for a year. But now that I got the csp and amex bcp I am no longer planning to use bofa
