OMG..can't believe I was approved..CHASE freedom

[ Edited ]

So I was not suppose to app for anything until next year but I was curious about trying for another prime card ever since my AMEX zync denial in June.I applied online and got the 7-10 msg so I decided to call the back door number. The rep told me I was denied because of my unpaid judgment and recent delinquency which are  2 CO's from 2008, I told her that I have not had any lates in 4yrs and I have a few closed paid off loans in the last 2yrs one was an auto loan with Chase. I told her that I have a monthly arrangement for the judgment that I have paid for 3yrs and the CO's were not recent I made a settlement and hey were updated last month. She asked me about why the accounts went delinquent and I told her, she placed me on hold and I was approved for $1500.00. I was in shock because I was expecting a denial, this is my highest limit and first prime card in 8yrs. I am not sure what CRA was pulled I forogt to ask. My current scores are in my siggy. This week has been good, I was able refi my 16.9% APR car loan down to 4.49% with my CU and refi a personal loan with them and that is a $330 a month savings. THANK YOU for helping me restore my credit. I am still really far from 700's but its good to get some approvals being that I was at a score of 510 Jan 2011......Now I will garden for real this time...lol..
