Double Approval: Chase Freedom, AMEX Blue Cash Preferred!

I was able to add two more goal cards over the last few days, pretty stoked!

 

Chase Freedom: My first revolver with Chase, and my FIRST Visa Signature! $8,000 limit @ 20.74% APR. I started using them for checking and savings in 11/19. I had black star prequalified status on CSP in their online portal so I was fairly confident on a Freedom approval. Double pulled TU (734) and EX (730.) Have Disco it and wanted to add Freedom and Cash+ to my 5% rotators for a lot of great category spend. Since I was 4/24, and Cash+ will probably take at least 6-12 months of gardening, Freedom was the logical choice to go after first. Yes, I know I run a risk double apping when Chase is involved, so I don't need reminded, though I say this in a friendly manner as I appreciate the warnings everyone has to give.

 

AMEX BCP: $2,000 @ 23.99% APR. This is my second card with them, opened Delta Gold in 9/19. I have been preapproved for all cards on their website for about 4-5 months, so my confidence level was high for this one too. They used my most recent SP from earlier this month from EX (730.) Bummed about the SL, however not surprised. I burned them for 7k previously, and they still have me on a short leash. The thing with AMEX though, is that I am not worried about growth. I'll likely move another 2k from my delta card once this one comes in the mail anyway. I spend pretty close to exactly the 6k cap on groceries yearly so this card was a no brainer. 

 

Very happy for these two great additions to the eventual goal of an exclusively fully cash back line up!

 

DPs:

EX: 730 EQ: 721 TU: 734 FICO 8s

Congrats! You probably have nothing to worry about with chase. It'll take amex a couple of months to report it and I'm sure it was SP approval for the amex.
