Congrats.  I opened mine in DEC 09 and have been using it here and there but I'm starting to like it because I'm beginning to see how the rewards categories work.  I think the best ones are the ones starting in July- esp. gas!

I think this was given to a lot of people. I got a increase of 300 that made my cl 4550. Had the card since Jan 09 and it was a regular platinum PCed to freedom

Opened my Chase Freedom card in Nov 09 so this CL increase was pretty quick i thought. I've put maybe 4k on this card total since having it and always carried a balance of 100 or so month to month.

My Chase Freedom is a converted First USA backed card.   $5000 earned the hard way (hard inquiry on Experian, but at least it was much more than double what I'd had before) last summer.   No increase for me this weekend. :smileysad: 
So, what do those who are seeing this increase (congratulations to you all, by the way), share in common?

called in and got a 200 cli to 700 dollar. Was a soft pull. Formerly wamu then pc to freedom. I barely used this card at all. I was hoping they would match my other two chase cards at 4500. They really dont like ex wamu cards. haha

Have you double checked your reports?  

I ask because Chase routinely pulls hard for any customer initiated CLI request.  Gratz! in any case.

So far nothing yet. I even told the guy on the phone that hard pulls for cli are bs and he insured me that it was a soft. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
