Approved for Chase Freedom Unlimited!

I'm 21, so my credit history is a short tale. Started with a Capital One Secured Mastercard when I turned 18, Discover It a couple months later, closed my Capital One card, got a Chase Freedom almost two years ago. Now I applied for Chase Freedom Unlimited and was instantly approved for a $4K CL. I wonder what my next card will be? I'll find out next year...


FICO 5/2020: CC: 6 AZEO (+1 closed in 2014)
CC Utilization: ≤ 1% | Loan Utilization: ≤ 8.9% | AAoA: 2 yr 8 mo | AoOA: 7 yr 0 mo | AoYA: 0 yr 0 mo
Total CCs: $33,500 (3/24) | Total Installments: $5,010 (SSL with NFCU) | Late Payments: 0
(grrr car loan shopping - PIF)

I would suggest that you ask Discover for a CLI on your Discover IT card. I'm sure they'll give you another $1k at least without a HP since you've been with them so long. Congrats on your credit journey. I didn't trust credit cards for years and I just started to understand about them December 2014. Success happens quick when your self-disciplined.

Re: Approved for Chase Freedom Unlimited!

Thank you for the support, guys! Managing credit is fun for me - I began planning my credit debut months before I turned 18. Like @joeaseer said: "Success happens quick when you're self-disciplined." Smiley Happy

@joeaseer: What a good idea! I wasn't even aware that some companies (e.g. Discover) did CLIs without a hard pull. I just called them and they increased my CL by $1,500, so now my Discover It is at $3,500. Thank you for the tip! Smiley Very Happy
