I noticed that my chase card dosent have a credit limit and that equifax is not putting this card in my total ultization. Ive had the card since 99 It was explained to me that it is a signature card and has no credit line.
My question is should I keep the card since its has a lifetime apr of 4.99% or should I ask for a product change.
Its kinda weird I am not getting any points for this card on Fico. Maybe I am wrong but I have been looking at the ultization for the last 3 months and its only adding up my 3 other cards. And this card is my longest active card and most avalible credit. any advise??????

Call Chase's customer service department and ask to have the card changed to the non-Signature version. Or, if there is another Chase card that appeals to you, ask for a product change to the non-Signature version of that card. A non-Signature account will report a credit limit.
Our forum members have had very good luck with Chase when requesting a product change from Signature to non-Signature.
EDIT: I forgot to address the lifetime 4.99% APR. I assume you're carrying a balance at that rate. In the past, Chase never made any changes to existing APRs when converting from Signature to non-Signature. However, given the current economic climate, this policy might have changed. You'd have to ask the Chase customer service representative what would happen to the 4.99% APR.

Do NOT mess with this card. In today's credit climate- keep it- the age is helping you. Don't worry about it not reporting a limit You should work on getting the other 3 cards down to 10 % utilization.
4.99 Thats awesome-

sometimes... usually pay off before billing cycle but the last 2 months i have carried a balance
but most of the time I pay the card in full what in your opinion is the best card to have from chase (rewards)
I am thinking they might let me keep the original date that card was issued becase it does help with AAOA
If I dont it would mess that up and I would lose about 2 years of AAOA... Was looking at the perfect card
wont have any problems getting any card fico scores in high 700
