I applied even though KK said my chances were poor. I bank with Chase and have maintained a good standing with them for the past few years. I was instantly approved for a card with a limit of $4300. That’s my highest limit and I was beyond pleased. My fico is 717 and my other scores are around 690 with excellent payment history but short credit length. I’d say if you bank with chase and it says poor odds then try anyway like I did. My capital one card was only a $300 limit and just raised to $500. Besides that all I have is HSN and Victoria secret both with limits under $700. It’s been a few weeks now and it hasn’t been closed all a sudden like others so I hope I’m in the clear. I just paid off my balance of $800 and will continue to keep using this card and paying it off monthly.

When you apply for credit , do so all at one time , I think you have a 14 day period where if you apply 10 x it will go on your CR as "One" inquiry, I had only 1 when i was approved , In fact i have the Chase Unlimited 15k and jut got the Freedom 20k , Keep your utilization at 10% , Pay it off every month

Got it!

CK said I have fair odds but applied anyway.   Result said they need to review more so I figured oh well and it did hit my score by 3 right away.  I have the Sapphire with 8k limit and kept balance really low.  Signed on my phone to make my payment and noticed I have the Freedom Unlimited underneath my Sapphire.  I was excited to see that I was approved for $6100.  Called costumer service to make sure and verify that it’s not a mistake and they said yes it was approved.  So with my odds of just fair I think Chase consider your other accounts with them maybe and if you’re in good standing maybe they base it on that as well.   My payment history is at 100%.  CS is 690 at the moment but I just started building my credit for about 3 years now.   So happy to say I’m excited to have this card and will take advantage of that 15 months 0% APR.

Instant approval, great card
ehannibal Cardholder

I received instant approval for this card with a limit of 20k. I recommend paying the balance in full each month to avoid interest after the introductory period.

Great Rewards card
MoistVonLipwig Cardholder

I have had this card for about a year now. I love it. The 1.5% cashback across the board is quite good especially considering there is no anual fee. This is an exellent card to help build credit and it is the one I use to do most of my grocery shopping. I also believe you can use the cash back generated with this card on the Saphire Reserve card which I plan to apply for in the future. As of yet I have not had need to contact chase customer support so I can't speak to that.  The rewards are quite easy to redeem. I would highly recommend this card due to its high cashback and lack of an anual fee.

Does it give cash back or do you have to use points to get cash back? If so can you apply the cash to the card or do you have to get a gift card for it and spend more money in order to get the gift card?

Simple and useful cash back card.
SirKrimzin Cardholder

Credit Karma said I had excellent approval odds for this card. I applied and within minutes was approved for a $3500 credit line. Using the card I've earned hundreds of dollars on regular purchases.
