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.

I applied for this card with the intentions to utilize the 0% balance transfer for 15 months option. However, what they do not tell you in the card descriptions; "you may be approved for card without having the balance transfer option". I was approved for $6400 without a balance transfer option; when I spoke with customer service they said that balance transfers are a promotional option, which I didn’t qualify for based on my credit worthiness. This doesn’t make much sense... giving the amount of credit line I was approved for and having a 680-700 credit score. Just be aware if you are applying for this card because you would like to use the balance transfer option, there's a great possibility you will not be allowed that option, even if approved.
On the other hand, American express (no affiliation) approved me for a credit line, and the option for balance transfer is standard with approval (not promotional).
