Chase Freedom Unlimited - Approval

I finally got approval for a Chase card after getting denied about 8-10 months prior. My application was previously denied when I applied about a week ago because Chase needed verification, and I believe my application was approved about 2-3 days after I faxed the required documents to them. 

My CL on the card is only $500, which isn't the biggest deal in the world to me because this card is going to become my general spend card outside of resturaunts and supermarkets since I now have the AMEX Gold aswell, and my two current credit cards (Discover IT & BoA Cash Rewards) will only revolve 1% utilization and both of them combined only give me a total CL of nearly $5000. 

Going to put heavy spending through this card and let the statement cut at 10% util and PIF as usual and hope to get a decent credit increase on the Freedom Unlimited in 6-12 months time. And then I'll try applying for the CSP in 1.5-2 years from now when a majority of my inquiries get erased.

Congratulations on your Chase approval!

They can be a tough nut to crack.

BTW no such thing as "ONLY" in credit.

$500.00 from Chase is a great start,

enjoy your success,

Cheers
