Hope this helps those who are on the fence:
Applied on Wednesday 8/24, Instant Approval. 10K CL (the lowest offered). CK scores were 684 and 678. Utilization at 34% across 6 other CC's. 4 New accounts in 24mo' (4:24 ratio that you keep hearing about pertaining to Chase). To the folks who've opened 5+ accounts within 24 months, I'd suggest applying within the branch. I've seen instances of success in getting over Chase's 5/24 barrier if appying via branch. You can also visit the chase website for a "pre-qualification, soft pull", however that doesn't necessarily mean approval. It just means you have "better odds". For what it's worth, after attempting, this card didn't show up as one I was pre-qualified for.
I've read about folks with much higher Credit Scores either getting a 7-10 day message, or a 30 day message after applying. From what I've seen thus far, that's not necessarily a "no". People have had success with calling the "recon" line (reconsider, I'm assuming?) and the CS agent asks verification information, followed up by an "initial" approval. I say initial, because the agent states that their forwarding their account to the underwriters for the final verdict.
From what I've seen, credit limits range from 10K-30K+.
Also it appears as the first wave of cards being sent out were delivered by UPS in a "fancy" box. However due to the amount of demand, everyone else's cards are being sent via UPS in an envelope.
Card supposedly takes 7-10 business days, but I've read that many of them are being shipped within 3 days automatically.
Long story short- seems like there's been a huge demand for this card thus far. So if you're still pending approval, I would either suggest calling the recon line (u can find number on the internet), or waiting it out. I probably have one of the lowest approved Credit Scores, so if there's any delay in approval, I'd guess it's due to 5/24, or information verification. Not necessarily to judge your credit worthiness.
