I agree on that .....  to even better help your case , get Util down to 1 %


+1. My low ult is a major reason why I was approved.

Re: How hard is it to get Chase Freedom approval?

Chase can be odd.

 

I have new credit and they gave me an ok limit.

 

Similiar length of history as you, my utilization might have been a little lower but I had a lot of INQs. They gave me a $5k limit.

 

At the time of app I already had a card with a decent limit and they just matched that limit.

Too many INQs & low AAoA so I'm off to tend the Garden.     Age:21

I think you will be okay. Even if you are denied, you can get approved recon (Chase has awesome recon dept.)

 

When I app for Chase freedom, I was denied. At the time I have about 40-50% util.

I recon them, they asked bunch of question regarding my util and inq.

I told them the truth, and got approved for 2k CL

 

When I got my card, I recon the CL, and spoke to a nice lady. I told her that after I do BT, I would not have enough CL left to use it as my main card and to get the promo cash back. She asked how much I want and go over my plan and I was approved for around 4k (using same credit report that they pulled, no addition HP)

 

Again, YMMV. I have no late, no baddie, 3 years of AAOA.

 

After this, I went and open Chase checking acct and got 200 in 10 days. A month later got another 100 from chase freedom, that's 300 total.

I love Chase, I will get CSP soon, after BCE.

2013 Approvals: Discover IT - 3/1, Amex BCE - 3/4, CSP - 5/4, Barclay Ring - 6/12, BoA Privileges Cash - 6/27, Citi TY Preferred - 8/6, OCCU Duck - 11/4, USBank (Cash+) - 11/22, Wells Fargo - 12/21, Nordstrom - 12/29

12/19/2013, $100k+ Available Credit. Total Util: 0-1%
