Chase Sapphire Preferred with little history

So I have been wanting the CSP for some time now as im a pilot and wanted a travel card.

I am a relatively new immigrant to the US and only received my Social Security number 1 yr ago, Since then i have been working hard on trying to establish credit here is my journey:

 

11months ago - secured CC wells fargo CL $300  CLOSED

8 months ago - Capital one Platinum CL $600                         

6 months ago - Amex Gold/Wells fargo Platinum applications Denied  Smiley Mad

4 months ago - left wells fargo checking/savings/secured CC as I was mad from the denial as I was a customer for 5 yrs 

                            Opened Chase checking account.

4 months ago - Chase Amazon Prime VISA CL $600              

Last week         -AMEX BLUE CASH CL $5000

TODAY              -Went into Chase Bank and asked for any pre approvals as I had none on my computer at home....

                           Boom!! Pre approved for all cards including Sapphire reserve??..... Took a swing and applied for Sapphire

                           Preferred and was instant approved for CL $5000

 

CURRENT CARDS:  CSP $5000

                                  AMEX BC  $6000

                                  CHASE AMAZON PRIME VISA $1600

                                  CAP ONE PLATINUM $1100

 

Now I have the cards I want for a good while and will continue to use them wisely and garden...

 

FICO: 722                 TU: 740                EQ: 738 

INCOME: $40.000

8 MONTHS OLDEST ACCOUNT

 

Hope this helps you all in your credit journey!

Congrats!

Did you have any green checkmark offers before going into the branch? Any results from their pre-qualified page? You mentioned no computer offers but curious if you checked both offers pages?

Also did you ask a sit down desk banker or your teller behind the glass for your offers?

Re: Chase Sapphire Preferred with little history

Nope! thats what was intersting.. I went into the bank with the intention of getting some more blank checks and i thought i would talk to a banker to get advice on how long to wait untill pre approvalls start to come in since i was there allready, he sat me down looked on his screen and i was pre qualified for everything.... I was very shocked to also be pre approved for the  Sapphire Reserve but i think i will wait till next year for that one.

Well it's a good 2018 data point that CSR also shows up!

Before CSP were you 5/24 or higher?
