So I'm cruising along here in the garden and I log into Chase to check my account balance. I see a green check mark "selected for you" offer for CSP. Thinking I'm actually at 9/24, I figured it wouldn't work. Plus, it is my mission to get the CSR eventually. It caught my interest though, and I figured that I could always PC to the CSR once all the dust settles from my recent app spree a couple months ago and I'm back under 5/24.
So I said "what the heck" and clicked on it, if I'm denied I'm no worse off than I was before since I was cruising on the garden path with no plans to apply for anything unless I was pre-approved for Amex Gold or Platinum. Sure enough, it had a single interest rate, so reading that was a good sign, I typed in the income and phone number, click submit...and *presto*:
So I guess it is possible to be hideously over 5/24 and still get a Chase card. My birthday was yesterday so that's kind of a nice unintentional birthday present! So, I suppose I'm done for a while...unless a pre-approval for the Amex Gold comes along
Grats and its all the edits in short period of time that caught the eye of the spam filter.
OP, sorry to be the bearer of bad news but be prepared for the card to be closed out when you receive it. Chase is cuckoo like that and it makes people crazy!
But if it doesn’t happen to you, congratulations.
That's not even close to the facts on how Chase operates.
In December 2018 I was approved for a CSR with a $35K starting limit even though I was 15/24. I then went out and bought a new SUV, using the CSR to make the deposit, so I could complete the spending for the sign up bonus in one transaction. Then when Navy had their 0% BT promotion earlier this month I opened one of their cards to take advantage of it. Despite the new CSR, new auto loan, and new credit card Chase has not reacted in anyway adversely. Its unlikely they would cancel a credit that they themselves pre-approved after soft-pulling the OP's credit report.
Green checkmark offer seems to bypass 5/24.
If you live near a Chase branch, talk to a personal banker to see if you have any pre-approved offers. They are more solid and have more and better offers.
