Would I get approved for Sapphire Preferred?

I am wanting to apply for the Chase Sapphire Preferred but my concern is that I have too many chase credit cards.. 

 

I have:

Chase Slate - $1100 

Chase Freedom - $6500

 

What are the chances of getting approved for a new CC? Also would it be possible to upgrade the chase slate to the sapphire?

Welcome to the forum!

No, you cannot PC the Slate to the CSP. How long have you had the Chase cc's?

Edit: I do recall some being able to PC their Freedom to CSP.

Considering your scores and credit lines, you should be a shoe-in for the CSP...i would recommend apping for it instead of PCing your slate, just because of the bonus offer!

 

In case that you do get denied for having "sufficient credit" with Chase (usually based on the amount borrowed across all cards, and not necessarily how many you have), definitely recon and offer to move some credit from the slate and freedom over to the CSP...so say they could give you $3000, making your maximum exposure $10,600 altogether through Chase. You could move $1500 from the Freedom, and $500 from the Slate, keeping your exposure at $10,600, yet allowing you to open the CSP AND receive the bonus points, effectively making your new credit lines: Slate - $600 Freedom - $5000 CSP - $5000.

 

Best of luck!

Assuming that you have at least 6 months of the freedom and slate under your belt, you are ready to goooo!

 

Don't upgrade! You'll lose the bonus. 

 

You can apply for the CSP. Once you're approved, you can move the chase slate limit to the CSP if you don't need the slate anymore.

Re: Would I get approved for Sapphire Preferred?

I've had the Chase Slate card for about 5 years. It was my first CC ever and became the slate. 

I have had my Chase freedom card for almost 2 1/2 years.

Re: Would I get approved for Sapphire Preferred?

Nice.. good to hear!

 

I'm hoping I don't get a low credit line. Would like to have this be me primary card and something close to where my AMEX limit is.

 

Also is it better to go to the bank or apply online? And once I get the preferred, if for any reason would like to downgrade, possible?

Re: Would I get approved for Sapphire Preferred?

I think a good question is in regards to how you've been using your Chade cards.
Are they maxxed out?
Pif ?

Will Chase approve you for an additional card, even if your current card is maxxed out?
I'm asking bc I want CSP, but my Freedom is maxxed out due to 0%; no missed payments and I usually pay 5-10% of my $4509 balance.

Re: Would I get approved for Sapphire Preferred?

99% of the time I pay off my card monthly. Specifically with my Chase cards I'm probably only spending 1k/month. On my amex about 5k/mo . But everything normally paid off by the end of the month. 

 

Float between 0-2% utilization
