Chase pre approval/underwriting differences

Under the Chase see your card offers it shows I have been preapproved for CSP, Freedom and Slate. I would prefer one of their hotel reward cards. Does anyone know if they are more strict on their own cards, or the co-branded cards..

 

Lastly, how accurate is that preapproval page?

The CSP I believe is their hardest card to get approved for as it carries a minimum 5k CL, I would assume if you're preapproved for it that you could get any of them.

I'd say, that even if you don't have a preapproval on Chase website, you can still get a card. I asked a very similar question not a long ago, as I had no preapproval for CSP and was wondering if I can qualify. Went fine, instant approval. 

In my wallet now: Amex PRG NPSL, Amex BCE $15k $17k (thanks to recent CLI), Chase Freedom 11k, CSP $6k, Chase United ME $5k, Citi Dividend $5.6k, Discover It $4.5k and a handful of other cards...
TU Dec 2013 - 752Sep 2013 - 764 - new all time maximum

Obsolete data &colon:smileywink: Current TU - probably around ~750. I am now applying only for cards I can have fat sign-up bonuses on, repay them right away and close before next year. That's why BKLSBNKDELAWARE probably blacklisted me long ago, LOL...

I had nothing on the Chase page and applied and was approved for the CSP last week

[ Edited ]

Have never gotten a Chase preapproval offer.  Just got approved instantly for the United card with a $9,000 limit (I bank with Chase and have a $300 student card that I haven't used in months).  Really, I never get preapprovals for anything except BofA and a bunch of really subprime cards, but I have never been declined for a card when I applied. Most approvals have been instant or almost-instant (5 minute online chat for Citi, pending then app status approved for the Delta).  Discover, PRG and Unted were straight instant approval).

 

 Not sure how it works.

Chase Sapphire Preferred - 5.6k (3/13) | Amex Premier Rewards Gold - NPSL (1/13) | Chase United MileagePlus Explorer Visa Signature - 9k (1/13) | Amex Delta Gold - 6k (9/12) | Citi Forward Visa - 10k (10/12) | Discover It - 2k (2/12) | Chase +1 Visa - $300 (2/11)

Quite true. My DH didn't have a preapproval on Chase's website (yes, we checked first), but he apped anyway for the Freedom and was approved.
