I've never seen it at moe than 300, except for last year when somone found an old (probably targeted) link for 350 and posted it. I would do it now before they take it away.

Where is the $300 CB being offered? The Chase site still says $100.

Jump on it. $350 is the highest offer I've ever seen, but haven't seen anything $300 or above in about a year.

Don't know why I thought there was a $500 one.

I want one Smiley Sad

 

I guess that's a good thing. I was itching like a fiend getting ready to apply, even though I'm not ready yet. Crisis averted.

I would take that offer in a heartbeat.  $300 and one of the best cards on the market, umm yes please!  I got in on the $350 zombie app last April and have not regretted it.  Go for it!

+1 and one other reason:

 

Chase has a great recon team!  If you don't get instant approval, call and recon.  I have heard of a lot of folks having major success when it comes to Chase recons lately.
