Just got approved for the CFU at a "meh" $4500 - but it was rather unexpected to even see the approval AT ALL.
I'm WAYYYY past 5/24 More like 12/24 and 15INQs or better. I check the preapprove tab occasionally on Chase and today instead of the usual "Offer" of more bonus points for referring people, there were offers for the Freedom, Freedom Ultd and the Slate. Pretty all the same offer, 15mos 0% interest, no BT fees, etc etc. So I went ahead and entered the income info, added my AU (wife, always get her a card whenever I get a new one too) and hit Send. I really didn't expect anything of it, more or less verifying the error in the offer. Came back with an instant approval.
What made it doubly odd, per se, is that I just **bleep** near maxed the CSP out last week paying off my upcoming wedding reception in July and it sits at about 90% util as I haven't paid it off yet. I'm almost all out of credit on paper with Chase at the moment - so they offered more outisde the 5/24 apparently
I just got a CSP on 9/22/17, it was my last card and still be eligible under their 5/24, have been declined in the past since then for any of their affiliated cards (Disney, etc).
Anyhow, that wasn't expected, but I'll take it.
decided to push my luck a little since there were multiple offers, app'd the regular Freedom and came back with a SL of $5.5, app'd the Slate and got the 30 day message. on that note, pushing my chair away from the table and cashing out while still ahead.
Really don't know what's up with Chase today. Freedom got a 1k higher SL than the FU.
As far as what I called $4500 "meh" for is Chase usually seems a little better than that - like with the CSP, the bare minimum SL is $5k. My avg limit on most of cards runs between 9k (NFCU) to (Amex) 27k.
