CFU & CSR Approvals in the same month - it's possible

Hi - been using this fourm for a while now but never got around to posting.


Since I was under the 5/24 rule for quite some time, a friend of mine suggested that I try aiming for the CSR since my score is high enough.  (770 range). I had no background with Chase and he suggested that I start with the Freedom unlimited and I was surprised to see them endow me with a 24k limit. A few weeks later I applied for the CSR and wasn't approved immediatley but after about 2-3 business days it appeared in my chase portal with a 30.2k limit. Pretty surprised to be granted both of these in a short timespan. I don't suggest doing what I did and take some time to use the Freedom or Freedom unlimited for a few months before going for a sapphire. Hope this helps!

Congrats on your approvals! 


It is possible to get two Chase cards in less than a month, however, it's really not advisable. 

I've done it with Freedom and CSP. 

Freedom went without a glitch. SCP was in manual review for a short period of time, I had to talk to someone who I though was underwriter (he wasn't) and I had SPs on EX almost weekly for over a month.  I have over 20 years history with Chase. 


I am glad you were successful with your apps (and me too!) but I would never do it again in such a short time. 


Lay low for a while. They will SP. Dont apply for anything till SPs stop. 
May sound overly cautious, but a little restrain is better than losing one or both cards.
