Chase AARP Approved

Filled out the app last night and got the 30 day message. This morning-early.... like 2:00 am, the new account showed up online. Not close to the AARP age but the card rewards were too good IMO to worry about showing an AARP card. Smiley Happy

DPs for those who want them:

-Pulled TU & EX
-FICO 08: TU is 781 and EX is 685
-Tons of INQs.... and when I say tons I mean-I don't even want to put down the number. Been trying to fix this for months. This was my first app in 4 months.
-Less than 1% Utilization
-Income range $90k-110k
-Second card with Chase-have Amazon Visa too-Might combine and close one but not until after the $100 bonus after $500 spend in 3 mo.

Approved for $4500 which is not my best and not my worst. My other chase card is $4k. Since I may combine and close it is basically a $4500 CLI and a free $100 for 2 credit pulls. Smiley Happy

Anything else-ask.

Re: Chase AARP Approved

Congrats!

 

Same logic I used with my Disney card - $200 bonus (but a $49 AF)... and a HP for a $5K CLI... LOL

NFCU $60.4k/PenFed $22.5k/Commerce $15K/53 $11K/Synovus $14K/BBT $11K/CapOne $12K/DCU $7.5K/BMO $7.5K/Chase $14.5k/Cabelas $10K/ and many many more!
Total CL $398600, plus car and RV loan.
Ooh. Ooh. Getting closer to that $500K mark!

Re: Chase AARP Approved

Thx all.
Does chase give the bonus money pretty quick or do they make you wait?

Re: Chase AARP Approved

Called-combined the 2 and closed the Amazon. For some stupid reason I had to forfeit $500 of my Amazon limit. It's always bugged my OCD that I had the Synch Amazon and the Chase anyway-since they both give the 5%... so now I'm happy-I'll use my Synch card for Amazon and now have a 3% gas and restaurant card-that isn't a change monthly or quarterly card.

Re: Chase AARP Approved

Great. Now my card went from $4500 limit and available to $8000 limit and $0 available. Wonder why the available is gone.

Grats on a nice pickup DjSmiley Happy. If for some reason you get questioned about AARP, just mention you are part of the Advanced Aeronautical Rocket Propulsion squad Smiley Wink . Lol, no idea what that is but sounds coolSmiley Happy.

I remember reading that sometimes there are weird quirks with Chase when moving limits so hope all is ok and just a glitchSmiley Happy
