Chase United Explorer Approval

Today I got an email offer from chase for the United Explorer Card.  I have been wanting a good travel card (although would prefer Southwest) so decided to take a chance.  Applied and was approved with $5k sl.  I do have a banking relationship with Chase.  I have the Amazon Prime Visa, Freedom, and Disney Visa.  I also had a car loan through them until just last week.  My scores are not that great all hovering around 640.  But I do have a significant income.  Not sure how I was approved but I will take it.

Congrats! I got the same email yesterday and chalked it up to marketing, maybe I’ll give it a try.
