I recently got lucky when I applied for my RBFCU credit card back in May and was approved for $5,000 with the recent 3 credit I was approved for back in January 2019 and 2 in February 2019. I was done at this point and was aiming for the Chase Freedom in December, I decided to apply last night and was denied so I waited till the next day to call their recon line. The young lady told me the reason for denial was too low of available credit and inquiries.
I explained my situation when she asked why so many and wanted to build a relationship with Chase. She completey understood and next thing you know she came back from being on hold for 5 minutes and congratulated me with a credit limit of $500, I didn't care too much about that because I knew in the matter of a couple months they'll most likely auto increase me. But I'm super happy!! I didn't think the process would be that smooth.
Congrats! Chase is my next goal card but I'm at my 5/24 because today I was approved for a BoA Cash Rewards (that I'm super pumped for!)
Very nicely done! Chase is a biggy!
Congrats on your new card - I can't wait to be approved by chase (someday)!! Keep up the good work.
