CSR Approved!!

I applied online today for the Chase Sapphire Reserve. Data points... Experian Fico 8 -724, 96k income, 2/24 with 2 Amex cards (Delta Gold and Amex Gold).

I was shocked to get an instant approval at $23.7k.

Re: CSR Approved!!

Trying to decide if my next Chase card to pair with my CSR should be the Freedom or Freedom Unlimited. Any recommendations?

I've had the CSP, Freedom and now I have the CFU. I PC'd from CSP to the Freedom then PC'd to FU. I didn't like the Freedom specific bonus catagory spending then having to rememer if I'd signed on for that extra bonus spend (changes every 2 months or so). I just like the 1.5 with no hassle as it can catch some riff raff spend..... If it can work for you, run with it.


Good Luck!
