I just wanted to do another shout out for Chase. After receiving a CSP for $5000 on recon earlier this week, I decided to try my luck with the executive offices for a CLI. Apparently, they do not handle CLIs, however, they spoke to the CLI department and advised that I might need to be transferred back for a recon. I was very upset that they do a HP for each separate request, but I was assurred that they would in all likelihood be able to recon a CLI since I'd been granted a CSP earlier this week.
They asked how much I wanted; I asked for $7500, knowing my highest card right now is Home Depot at $7200. I was bumped to pending, send back to recon, and after answering a few questions (primary reason for wanting new card, how long at job, rent or own, how much is my mortgage payment ) I was put on hold for 3 minutes and Bruce came back and stated that I was apprioved for $7500! I have to be honest here and say that my first thought was that I should have asked for more, but then I thought, why the heck would I ever need more than the amount I have been given this week?!? Considering that my Chase was $1,000 for YEARS and was only just recently increased by $500 to $1500, I think I did pretty well. ( But it did cross my mind that I should have gone for $10,000!)
I also wanted to mention that the CLI department wanted my entire household income, which was very odd to me, because the recon department had stated earlier in the week that they wanted only MY income.
Anyway, I am posting because this board has been a great source of information for me while I was deciding whether to pull the trigger. I am upset that they had to do TWO pulls, but since I app once every two years or so, I figured they are close together, and so I am semi ok with it. Really, that is the only issue O have with Chase; they are a bit rigid about their pulls. They also don't budge much on their APR policies...they review every six months and decide from there.
Congratulations!! I'm guessing you already have a Chase checking account so you get the extra cash benefits? I think it's referred to as the 10/10 (or something like that?).
Very very nice, that's a great combo.
