On the same day too.

 


It's bad. Which Chase card did you apply? Did you ask for recon? So they pulled two differemt CRAs.

 

 

Ron.


I applied for the Freedom. I asked for recon the day after, so this was not the cause for both CRA's being pulled from.

 


Did you get the card?

Come on Ron, just app already! :-)

I tried to find which one is good for me before I apply. :smileyhappy: Now I choose between three cards: Chase Sapphire Preferred Card, United Explorer Visa Signature Card and business.  I need to do some research.

If you're looking for the best sign-up bonus offers, I'd say pass on the United Explorer which right now is offering its lowest bonus ever. The CSP's offer has remained the same for a long time and probably will not change significantly in the near future.

I did not get the Freedom, and am still bitter about it. :smileymad:

Sorry to hear it.  I thought it was easy to get. I have seen people getting approved at leas $500 with 600s.  I like United Explorer and I like the card because it will save luggage fee. I flied three times to 4 year.  Three or fours luggage fee will cost just as much as the annual fee.  I don't really care about the airport lounge.  I haven't really looked at the Chase Sapphire Preferred and the only thing I like is no foreign transaction.  

 

Thanks for your reply.

I applied for the Freedom when my FICO scores were at the peak (768 on TransUnion and 713 on Equifax). After getting denied for the Freedom I had to apply for other cards and thereby add more inquiries to my credit profile. As a result, my scores got really messy.

If saving luggage fees is what you're looking for, it sounds like the United Explorer card is for you, but perhaps wait for a few months for the next bonus offer bump. One huge advantage of the CSP is the extra miles earned on restaurant and travel purchases, as well as purchases made through their Ultimate Rewards Mall. The United card gives you extra miles on United purchases only. In terms of mile accumulation, the CSP is far superior.

Thanks for the sugguestion.  I hope that you will get the Chase Freedom cards. It's a good card to have besides US Bank Cash+. I usually fly at the United.  I will be going to Asia on business trip within next two months. I have been looking at the other airlines such as Delta. They have at least 4 four stops to get to the destination.  I used my Amex PR Gold to book tickets through Travelocity. I have a few option to buy tickets either my Amex PR Gold or Travelocity Amex or  Chase Freedom 5% bonus this month without applying for the card. Using the luggage fees to pay for the annual fee of United Explorer card.  I missed 65K bonus points earlier this year.  

 

Thanks again for your reply.

 

Ron.

You should care about the lounge! Lounges are the awesome. Clean, free of degenerates, cocktails, nice bathrooms. Whats not to love?

Thanks! I hope to eventually get the Freedom too, though at this point I'm no longer craving for it since the Discover More has been doing me wonders, and the Freedom's most enticing 5% categories for me are almost over this year and may not repeat next year. United has the best award flight booking system; I'd take United over Delta any day. Since you have so many Freedom cards, you might as well use them to book your travels now to take advantage of the 5% cash back. Then if you get the CSP, you can convert the cash back rewards from the Freedom to Ultimate Rewards points which can then be transferred to United's frequently flier program.

 

If you fly internationally you should get som free checked luggage allowance anyway.
