Congrats! I am currently in Month 2 of an extended garden stay to try for this card next September! 


Thanks, @JNA1  

Will that be your first Chase card? 

 


Yes, it will be. I had a green star offer for the CFU in Nov of 2019 when I only had 3 cards, but I didn't know about the 5/24 until I had already gone over 5/24. 


I got my other two in 2018, I've had no pre-approvals for about 2.5 years then trolling with SW card started lol  

I might be slightly biased after being a customer for 15+ years (there I go, carbon dating myself) but I like Chase.

 

 

 

 


If I had known about 5/24, I would have got the CFU back then and PC'd it or maybe even just cold app'd for the Flex (which was the card I wanted at the time).  The Freedom Flex is the next big hole filler I want to add to our arsenal. My plan was to try for it in Jan of the next year, asi would have been 4/24 if I didn't apply for the Affinity and Citi card last month. The $32,500 preapproval I got the Affinity card was too good to turn down, so I pulled the trigger on it. Getting the Citi CC rounded out my 5% restaurant spend in combination with 5% fast food on my MCP. 
So now I'll wait until Sept and to get the CFF. 

This is my 5/24 countdown! 668F0314-9521-4D6C-8129-1E043FE46498.png

Congrats on your approval.  Great card to go along with CSP/CSR.  5% rotating category then of course 3% food.  You still have December to use for cow and get 7% back up to 1500 through December on your favorite category Smiley Happy.  Enjoy

That's the plan! 

Thanks, CC. I'm really hoping I get to see some approvals from you soon!

Congrats on your CFF approval!

I'll be 4/24 on 1/05/2022 and the CFF is the last Chase card i'm after. I was going to wait until 2/1/2022, but now i may just wait a few days after 1/5! Hopefully the 5% grocery SUB for 12mo will still be available.

Wait a few days after 1/5 and give it a try. I did prequal for Amazon card to see if my newfound "normal" status would yield a pre-approval, and it did, so that was my shot of courage.

Groceries were one of the reasons I wanted to hurry up and get it over with, with my luck, I would have become eligible one second after promotion was over.
