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

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.
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!
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.
