Excellent card Helpful to 1 out of 1 people

Got approved for Chase Preferred card w/ a credit score of 780 plus. I got approved for 15k but decided to transfer limits of other two chase cards. So right now, I own Chase preferred card w/ a limit of 27k. Definitely recommend it.

Approved! :D Helpful to 5 out of 5 people

So excited I got approved :D My CK score is 663 but my Transunion Fico is 679. I have older previous delinquincies and a few paid off older collection items. I took the chance to apply even though when I applied for a limit increase with my Citi Preferred card, that I have had since 2011 with a limit of $500, and was denied. If it didn't drop my score I woul have closed my card...anyways, I have 2 other credit cards with $7,000 limits on each and a couple others with $2,000, $3,000, $1,700 and a few with $500. My DTI is very good though with only 13% utilization including my personal and auto loans. My credit age is 5 years. I  hope this helps people! :) Good luck!

Oh, and Chase Sapphire gave me a limit of $5,000.

I applied and got denied Helpful to 2 out of 3 people

I applied for the chase sapphire. I was denied. I called the reconsideration line and after another review was denied again. Chase informed me that  my credit score was still a little low and that my debt to income ratio was too high. I asked if having student loans in deferment was counted against this. She informed me that even though it is deferred, it is still counted because it is a loan that eventually will become part of my monthy expenses; I didn't know that. Overall, happy with Chase's CS and additional info on what some companies look at when  making an approval.  

Would it be possible for CK to add an additional feature to the website pertaining debt to income ratio? I think this would be helpful when other members are considering apply for credit , but are hesitant or not aware of this factor.

I am overall satisfied with the service of both Chase and CK

Bad customer service Helpful to 1 out of 3 people

I have never paid a credit card late... I was only 5 hours late paying this card and they would not reverse the charge or interest accrued. Extremely disappointed in the smart@ss customer service rep and Chase as a whole. I will be closing this account and looking for a card with exceptional customer service. That is because good customer service requires the company to value every customer especially their long-sanding, high spending customers and allow for one mistake when I was traveling out of town for a family matter.

DENIED Helpful to 7 out of 9 people

I applied on 03/13/14 and was not instantly approved.  I waited till the next morning and called the reconsideration line at (888) 245-0625, the CS Rep was pleasant on the phone and informed me that in order be get approved on this type of card, you MUST have a credit line close to 5k.  I'm new to credit with and my income is 35k, current CL is $1500 with CapitalOne, CK score at 695 (FAIR), UTILI at 7%, and no public or collections records whatsoever.  I only applied for this card because of the rewards, and that Credit Karma gave me the false impression that I'll get approved (based on approval odds -GOOD-) If I had known of the $5,000 CL requirement, I would have not applied for this card because I have a new hard inquiry on my credit report.  SO BEWARE... before applying for this card or any future credit cards, call and ask for the required CL or do some research prior to avoid getting DENIED.  

Also, if you are trying to build credit fast, DON'T DO IT BY OPENING multiple cards within a year because that will lower your chances of approval with other lenders.  This is based on experience because I am that guy who wanted a higher limit quick, but don't wanna wait.  Lesson learned.  Just sit on your current credit card and keep UTLI below 20%.  Pay your bills on time and even if you max out your card, pay it down or all by the date and your UTLI will report below 20%.  I have maxed out my credit cards ($500 CL) each and paid it down. I would leave one at zero and the other with a $20 balance. By doing so, I am increasing my credit score faster and quicker.  Another thing to get approved is the HISTORY of credit.  Having a history, paying on time, no derogatory or collections will help you obtain that high credit limit.

Hopefully this helps.
