Really loving Chase right now ...

Ok so anyone that's read my posts knows I went from 790's many years ago to the low 600's and have finally been getting back in the credit game. Well yesterday, with 680 Fico's across the board, I applied for the Chase United Explorer Plus Visa and was approved!!! I am super siked right now. I've been using my current cards responsibly and never exceeding more than 20% usage on any card and it seems to have worked out. I can't be any more excited right now. Just posting to encourage anyone trying to climb back on the credit train. Now where's that garden again?

PS: This is also my first Visa Signature with a starting limit of 5,000.00. Not bad, not bad at all Chase..

PPS: I posted this exact thread on another website and I'm reposting here to share the news with MyFico forum members...

Re: Really loving Chase right now ...

Way to go!   I just got my Explorer in the mail on Thursday, it was also my first Visa signature.   I have been nothing but pleased with Chase so far.   I've had to call them a few times for random stuff and give the CSRs I dealt with very high scores across the board.   Their webiste is also top-notch.  



Starting Score: 676 CK 5/13. Current: 717 EX 6/15 -- Last App: 6/2014

Re: Really loving Chase right now ...

congrats!Chase is awesome! I applied for United and were approved instantly for 5500,even though at the time my only cc is WF secured for 300$. A week later i tried my luck again with Chase freedom,with 5 inquiries on my credit profile,yet chase approved me again for 3500$. Unlike stupid WF.
