United Explorer is my goal, card-wise. One day, a long long time away...
Congrats! That's a nice limit.

Your results are typical of my results with Chase. Each new card gets a better limit than the one before. Choose wisely and keep applying for new cards every 6 months and eventually that will ask you to close the smallest account and transfer the limit (less $500) to the new card you want.

Congrats on the approval!
I hear Chase is one of those banks that would give you a new card with a high CL, than to increase the CL on an existing card. Nice cl btw.
This reason alone is why I don't want to open any new accounts with Chase. I have a Freedom card that I'll use solely to gain extra points/cashback, but I won't open another card with them - no reason why a company would rather me close and re-open for better terms, especially if my credit has done nothing but improve since opening the account.
