Hi guys, question regarding CSP!

Hi guys!

I'm new to the community of MYOPIC, but I read your posts all the time and you guys are doing a great job helping people!

 

I have a question regarding CSP.

 

I have a credit history of 17 months, 5 cc

 

amex gold:npsl

amex green:npsl

cap oneSmiley Surprisedne card with $1500

cap one:second card with $750

discover it:$2000 

 

my 3 credit scores are all a little over 700

my utilization is 16%

 

my longest account is with capital one i have the amex for about 4 months both of them , and i just got my discover it.

On my equifax report i think i have 3 inquires , i understand that chase pulls from there i live in SO CALIFORNIA.

 

never missed a payment.

last time i tried applying for the CSP , i got denied i called recon twice they said i didn't have enough history.

i applied back in january of this year and back then i only had one card with capital one.

my question is like that: i want to try and apply again, should i wait for a few more months or i can just go ahead and apply right away?

 

btw i do have a bank account with chase.

 

thanks for your help, Oz.

Re: Hi guys, question regarding CSP!

How much are you depositing with chase approx?

Try to get a CLI from discover. Chase likes to see that you have a CL of >5k before approving for the csp. Not necessary, but it will help your chances quite a bit.
JPMorgan Palladium (100k), AmEx Platinum (NPSL), AmEx SPG (46k), AmEx BCP (42k), Chase Sapphire Preferred (47k), Citi Prestige (31k), Citi Thank You Preferred (27k), Citi Executive AAdvantage (25k), JPMorgan Ritz-Carlton (21k), Merrill+ (15k), US Bank Cash+ (22.5k), Wells Fargo (12k), Bloomingdale’s (12.4k), Chase Freedom (5k), Discover IT (5k).

Welcome to the forums!!!!

 

IMO I would garden at least until January. Give yourself plenty of time to get positvie history on your new accounts.

Re: Hi guys, question regarding CSP!

well i deposit money in my account at least twice a week , amex easly allow me to spend at least $8000 on each card.

 

i got my discover it last week, i don't think they will give me more credit right away.

Youe new accounts are going to be a deal breaker or borderline approval (multiple HP's) best to try it 1/14.

Re: Hi guys, question regarding CSP!

Like LS said, best to try it later then. Hopefully discover will give you a CLI before end of the year as well. You can also apply for freedom now just to get your foot into the door.

Having large amounts of deposits (I.E 5 figure range) helps too.

I would heed the above advice from LS and others.  The CSP is one of their premium products and Chase typically wants established history/a thicker file to leverage your approval chances.  Although it is optimal, but not always the case, your experience in having a TL of 5K (or above) to show usage and history will certainly pave the way.  Another item to keep in mind is whether the CSP currently fits your spending habits to offset the $95 AF... do you travel quite often, dine out frequently?  Otherwise, the non-AF version is an alternative, albeit with a lesser reward structure.
