Truthfully they only asked me some questions to confirm my idenity, they asked about a car loan i had with chase. I mentioned how i just paid off that loan this month and how i plan on making some big purchases and making it the card i regularly use for all of my purchases. They told me that once i recieve the card i should request for a CLI. i have 3 old baddies on an old capital one acct about 2 years old. The credit analyst was extreamly nice. I didnt ask for my score but myfico is 664 right now.

I just called the recon number and GOT APPROVED. Im pretty happy about this, this is the only card that i have wanted until i have an amazing credit file and get stand a chance against the US BANK + card. They approved me for 2k CL. I am now wondering how long till i could get a CLI.
That's awesome!! I'm glad I encouraged you to app
I felt like your chances were strong, given your prior relationshiop with them.
I would just garden the card for 12 months before applying for a CLI.
Nice job! Congrats!!!

I applied for Amazon visa with one collection 6+ yrs old and 2 baddies (paid and unpaid) 5+ yrs old and wouldn't budge.... I wonder if freedom is easier to get.... or maybe chase just doesn't like me ....
