Chase Sapphire Preferred + BB&T Bright (SP!)

Hello all! I have been waiting excitedly to post about my recent approvals, but I knew folks were going to want DPs, so I worked on finally getting my cards and scores in my signature first! Now that that's all taken care of...

 

Just got approved for a $19,000 SL on the CSP!!!!! My highest CL yet!!! Smiley Very HappySmiley Very HappySmiley Very Happy

 

Also got the lowest APR they offer on that card! Not that I intend to carry a balance, but it's a nice affirmation. 

 

This is my third Chase card, putting me at 5/24.

 

And then after seeing all the excitement over the BB&T SP approvals, I figured, why not...

 

Got approved for $6,500 on the Bright! I went with the Bright because I do have a balance I've been dragging around on another card that I'll need to transfer soon in order to avoid paying interest. I'm very pleased - I have been looking at balance transfer cards recently anyway, so it was perfect timing to have the opportunity to get one without a hard pull! Now that I've gotten it, I've set a goal for myself to fianlly get that balance paid in full before the Bright's 0% promo period ends in August 2020. Smiley Happy

 

All in all, I'm very pleased. Smiley Happy

Congrats on the big wins @thisjustin21! That's a very respectable CSP limit and it's a great card, then to bank on the BB&T Bright for a genuine purpose is just icing on the cake!

19K w/ Chase is respectable for an opening limit.

 

Focus on paying everything down so you don't spend bonus $$ on interest and transfer fees.  Have to make a profit somehow right?
