I apped for the Freedom on 12/22 and got 7-10 day message. Called same day and found out I was denied. Asked CSR for recon and was patched into recon (aka loan) dept. Was recommended for approval after recon and that it had to go to another dept for final review. Told to call back after Christmas. Called 12/26 to check status. They said they needed me to fax in a copy of my SS card and proof of address and then said wait a week and call back. Called back 12/31 and they said my paperwork still was in the system but verification dept. closed for holidays. Called back 1/2 and they said paper was in system and that it was sent it to verification dept. and to call back verification dept. Called verification dept. on 1/3 said that card app had to be sent to their manager for review (sweating beads now!) and they asked me more verification questions over the phone and then said to call back in 7 days. Called back on 1/10 and it was still in review by verification dept. but rep said they could process it now. Put me on hold for 10 mins total and APPROVED!!!! Even got credit alert that a new account was opened in my name by JP Morgan Chase.

Wow, that was a rough process. 

 

Sounds like we can all learn from this. Don't app for Chase products over the holiday's unless you are very patient...haha

Re: Chase questions.

Yeah, I learned my lesson! Talk about a panic attack! All the other recon stories I read on here weren't nearly as bad so I started planning for the worse...haha! Yikes! I think I called the auto line 15 times and it kept saying the same thing...in review. To add to the stress, I apped for a Chase Sapphire one day before I apped for the Freedom and there was no hope on that one. But I am very happy I got something for my troubles.

Re: Chase questions.

I think you will get it considering I did after all I went through. Just keep reminding them that the card was recommended for approval. I did that every time they said something negative. I kept saying, the card WAS (accentuate that word...nicely) recommended for approval and I am just calling to check on the status. ;-)

Re: Chase questions.

I'm starting to thing it's solid and ill get it...

Now I'm going to be really brave and ask for 2500 CL instead of the 1k at activation. The reasoning behind this is I move 2500-3500 a month on my current cards and PIF every month. It would be nice to stop killing my UTIL and to have a bigger cushion.

Thoughts?

Re: Chase questions.

APPROVED!!!!! :smileyhappy:)

Had to verify my identity, and say that I did in fact apply for the card.

Now.... When it comes in to ask for a higher CL!

Re: Chase questions.

Let me know how the credit limit increase request goes! I want a higher limit too as I only got $1,000. Rep told me to request it in 6 months. :smileysad:

Re: Chase questions.

I will- I'm sure it's a slim chance due to having to recon for approval... But never hurts to ask!
