I have received a denial letter for Chase freedom and tried to recon with no luck. Just few days ago I received a letter requesting me to mail or fax gross annual income for further consideration for application. It's a legit letter as I verified with credit analyst. Im just confused because seems like a no go and now this letter. Has anyone experienced this? I have faxes required documents yesterday... I guess just wait and see. UPDATE!! APPROVED ON RECON. I would like to thank everyone on this board for the wrath of credit knowledge.

I can't remember where I saw it - but I was researching about the Chase Freedom card when I wanted to apply back in Janurary and I saw a thread on a forum where they did the same thing you did. I want to say it was on this board.. but it could've been another one. I found it by Googling "chase freedom denial." Ultimately he was approved after sending in those documents.
So maybe they just wanted to verify your income before approving you. Good luck.

Good luck. I think they want to give it to you or else why go through this trouble?

I did an online application. Got denied basically. called the next day. Got approved. But i didn't get the intro 0% APR, which i thought i was getting. I didn't know of this until i received my card and activated it. So i was a little bummed out. I had this plan to do a transfer balance, but now that's a no go.... 2500 limit. 600-650 fico score.

You've already burned the INQ so you may as well exhaust all recon possibilities.
I tried twice, and no dice!

I would like to thank everyone on this board, I just been approved for the Chase Freedom card. I had to recon a few times but after faxing required documents and sweet talking a bit. I was put on hold and given my approval. My first prime card!!
