I had applied for the Chase Freedom card a couple weeks ago and got the 30 day message. I called the automated line a couple days after and it had switched to the 7-10 day message so I was figuring I was denied. Today I got a letter in the mail from Chase about verifying my identity and a number to call. Called the number and they verified some info and then text a code to my cell. Once that was verified, the lady finished processing my app and I was approved for a $4K SL!
I will say I was kind of thinking I was going to be denied as I app'd shortly after I applied for a Capital One card. I thought maybe the Cap 1 inquiries would have scared them away, but I guess not! Nice start to the weekend!
Congrats to you.. Chase is hard to crack!
