So just an update, was sucessful on all counts, I managed a CSP with a 12k line - sneaky double pull on TU and EX, called in for personal detail verification to get it approved. Also got a US airways WMC with a 2.5k line, barclays were cautious given they were currently my largest line despite great history.
Then it came to the wife. Sent in verification, took a long time in review tonight through the recon analyst, but eventually she was approved for her first CC, a Chase Freedom with a $500 toy limit. All good though - I fully expected her to only get a small limit like I did originally with no history, so happy to have her starting her history, and a nice $100 signup bonus and $50 referral bonus for me. To make her happier once her credit was dealt with I put her on as an Authorized user on the CSP - and that made her feel cuter after holding mine. Love the customer service and fact they were happy to expedite it in a day .
Really love the card. Only thing that remains is decide whether I should make my freedom a Visa Siggy...its past the 13 month requirement, and would only require 3k to reach a 5k line...but I kind of want the sapphire preferred at 10k for the fun of it. Maybe make the freedom a 4k...
