Ok, so this is about the picture below. I'm building credit so I can have one year history before I apply for my first Chase card (either Freedom or CSP). When I used to log in I would get an offer for CSP (because of CPC), and since I was denied for CSP I've only seen CFU offer. I don't get any offers when I do "explore offers". So, my question is two-fold:
One, are the "Your Offers" accurate, or are they just a way for Chase to get more applications?
Second, does Chase really need one-year, or should I cold app in June, and if I do apply should I apply for Chase Freedom and CSP at the same time to combine apps?
WOW that offer is hot! Selected for you offers are usually more solid than standard pre-quals on Chase.com/prequalified.
Chase was my first CC and credit product. If you have a banking relationship with solid deposits and/or direct deposits, they will likely approve you, but with a ~$500 SL.
After 1 year, you should be good to go for CSP (or even CSR).
You should be fine to apply directly through the offer and not wait until June. It's likely this offer is time-limited. When you get into the application page and open up the price terms, if you see the APR being a fixed number, then it should be reasonably solid.
It also somehow depends on your current credit status to see if it makes sense to get another card with Chase at the same time. If you don't mind the annual fee and spend a lot on travel, then the CSP may be good for you. But you still want to consider what other cards you currently have and their limit, and how many new accounts you have in the most recent 2 years.
I logged into my Chase app and had the same "exclusive offer" for the freedom unlimited. $300 for $500 spend. Was at 4/24 at time of application. They pulled EX. 675 score. Got the 30 day message, but then called in and was approved after verifying my identity. When i received the card, Chase showed my internal score with them to be 696.
