Free credit score by getting a second card?

Is this just a fluke or normal business practice? 

I wanted a NFC card for my chase freedom account, asked and they mailed it out soon.  Same account number, experation, name, design, and even securty code (since I wanted my old card to work too).

I open my letter and theres my credit score!

692 from equifax


I'm not complaining lol, but certainly wasn't expecting it.  (and no HP at all)


Is this normal (for chase or for everyone?), could this work with other card accounts?


am I missing something?

My ultimate credit wish,
a JP Morgan Palladium card
