How long to app for csp?

I got the freedom early this month and I see now that I can maximize my rewards if I also have the csp and ink. I plan on traveling once a month for business starting within the next 2-3 months so it would be nice to have the CSP.
Also what seems to be the approval criteria?

Re: How long to app for csp?

Can you provide more info on your report, scores and history? Is your freedom your 1st card with chase?

We need more info.

Also it may be best to hold that freedom card for a year then app since its a new account.

Re: How long to app for csp?

What's your oldest account history and AAoA?

What's your highest limit and what's your CL for freedom? How many inquiries?

I don't think you will get approved for csp with your current scores. It's best to wait for 6 months to a year and also try to improve your scores in the meantime

Oldest account right now is 3 years next month. Highest limit is 3500. Chase freedom limit is 2k.
I figured I might be dreaming, but hopefully my scores improve and with good history on my freedom they will approve me.

Re: How long to app for csp?

Try to get your CL increased above 5000 as well. Chase likes to match limits, rather than to be the first lender giving you your highest CL.

Keep your freedom in good standing and you definitely will stand a very high chance in 6-12 months from now.

In 6 months my BCE will hopefully be 9k with the 3x CLI. And I will ask for a CLI on the freedom then too.

Re: How long to app for csp?

I got a CSP with my only other high CL card being a Home Depot card at $7200. I had also had a Freedom stuck at less than 2k for years. My scores at the time were in the very low 700 range and under. They also raised my CL ony Freedom to 7.5k at the same time. I have a paid tax lien and a 6 year or so AaoA.
WOW! EQ when I joined myFICO: 657. Ups and downs and a few bumps and bruises, but finally back over 700. Whew!

Re: How long to app for csp?

Hi, I was dumb to apply for the chase sapphire as well when I just got my freedom last week I was deny so don't apply yet. I called back door for recon and was deny as well but the nice analyst suggested that I get one account to have at least 5k limit.. Also he suggest that I let the freedom age abit so it shows how we handle one of their cards.
