Chase Freedom Recon—Success!

Approved for 5900 with 696 Experian. 20% util, 8 inq, 5th card this month (but none for the previous 24).

When asked why so many apps I said I wanted to maximize my cashback rewards. Was surprised by this approval.

Re: Chase Freedom Recon—Success!

Wow your app spree is legendary. Most want to beat 5/24 and here you go doing it in a monthSmiley Wink. Awesome limits too.i would not like to have to explain all my apps to chase they say they are like drill sergeants lol. No matter how good your credit, if they asked you this and still approved, you are on radar. Time to garden hardenSmiley Wink

Re: Chase Freedom Recon—Success!

Thanks all.

Another question asked was do you have a payment plan for your current credit card debt (on a particular card)? I was able to honestly state that the card was paid off last week. Forgot to mention it was due to a BT.
I kept my cool—barely. Hope Chase does not read forums.

Re: Chase Freedom Recon—Success!

5th card this month with one being from Barclays?  Mrs. Barclay probably won't like that.
