Total Shocker! Chase Bank Wonders

So I went into Chase Bank to request two direct deposit forms for two different jobs. While he was processing my paperwork I asked about credit products. He then stated, he could check if I have a preapproval... 👀

He looks me right in the eye and says you are preapproved for all of our credit cards. I’m sitting there like what!? 😂

He showed me the screen and said literally all cards had a preapproval for me. He said of course its never 100% guaranteed but they are there. He said they should be showing in my Chase Credit journey or even Chase offers. I showed him that it never shows and he thought that was extremely odd. I thanked him for helping me and explained that I will be back when I am ready to go forward with a CC app.

For some reason I feel my credit scores mid (600s) are not in the bracket for being approved by Chase BUT the amount of direct deposits I have going into my account on a monthly basis could be why I was preapproved for all products? Idk I’m just babbling.

Re: Total Shocker! Chase Bank Wonders

That's definitely good news as in-branch pre-approved offers typically tend to circumvent the 5/24 restriction the majority of the time. Of course, as with anything, it's YEMV.

So, if there was a particular need for any of the Chase CCs that would fit your lifestyle or goals, it definitely merits some consideration.

Re: Total Shocker! Chase Bank Wonders

Smiley Surprised Pleasant surprise I'm sure! I would def keep that in mind when you're ready to get one of their cards. I started with the Chase Freedom almost 2 years ago and I absolutely love them! The cash back categories is cool but moreso is the total package of the rewards program. I had no clue about it at the time, I was just applying because it was one of the first advertisements I saw lol! But now I'm very familiar with their program, their 5/24 rule, etc. I recently got the Chase Sapphire Preferred through a preapproval link on my online account and attempted the Freedom Unlimited (for the intro 3% cash back) but was denied immediately. It wasn't because of the 5/24 rule but was denied because I applied right after applying for the Sapphire (probably not very wise but I was anxious lol!). Anyhow, a few days later I got my denial letter ("too many requests for credit") and called them to request they override the denial and they graciously did a manual review of my credit report and approved me! So now I have the 3 card I've wanted! Only one now I'm looking forward to is the Ink Business but that will be after sitting for probably about 6 months to clear out some stuff on my report.

Re: Total Shocker! Chase Bank Wonders

Some people chase Chase. Others will have Chase chase them if there is reason to believe there will be benefit. In your case the chaser is a mega bank that really wants to do business with you. All you have to do now is to tell Chase to fetch your new card.
