Pulled the trigger early!

[ Edited ]

I pulled the trigger earlier than expected on the Chase Freedom card!! My plan was to wait until my UTIL was down before applying for the card but I was in a good mood. So glad I went ahead with it!! Was instantly approved!!

 

So of course you get THIS message when you apply online.

 

Called the backdoor number to find out my limit!! It's $3k and standard APR 22.9% after 15 month 0% intro APR. SOOO EXCITED! Happy dance! So far...my highest limit "regular" card!!

The truth is out there...

Re: Pulled the trigger early!

Thank you!!!! I'm surprised they approved me! I've applied to Chase a few times in the past and have always been denied for not enough reporting tradelines *frown*..Guess I have more than enough now! LMAO!
