Chase Freedom is an excellent Point Rewards card. However, you will have a better chance of getting a Cap1 Cash Rewards card but it is not point based. You get 1.5% cash back.

If denied with Chase, recon.

I agree,   get your utilization down below 9% and then look at Chase Freedom or Chase Amazon, I think you'd be approved Smiley Happy

Avoid C1 unless you want a $500 limit for the next five years.
App for Chase Freedom! It's a great entry-level-prime card :-)
