Congrats on your approval!  But what is the Chase Simplicity?  I know about the Citi Simplicity but not Chase.

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Congrats on your approval! Smiley Happy   However, I think you mean "Citi" Simplicity rather than Chase.  The Simplicity card is a Citibank product.

Okay so what did you get?  Chase Freedom or Citi Simplicity?  What is your limit?

Re: I got lucky with Chase

Citi Simplicity - $4500 limit - I sent an email to Cap1 today asking for a review of my $1250 CL, I now feel that my request to Cap1 was justified as i have been with them for 18 months, made 64 payments to my account (over $12k) - yet stuck on $1250 lol

Congrats!  That is awesome for you!

 

Did you send the letter to the EO of Cap1?  There are a bunch of threads here about people having much success with that route.
