Excellent card
bhfowler88 Cardholder

CK had approval odds at fair, decided to apply anyway and was instantly approved for $5100. CK scores were 625 and 629. They sent FICO credit score with my card and it showed 668. Great card, great cl and online application and instant decision were so fast and easy! Highly recommend.

Decent Card. Beware of Chase though.
smonkey12 Cardholder

This was one of my first cards as an adult. I had it for a good 6 years or so with a 20k limit. I used it pretty regularly for awhile but then moved to a different card and carried a zero balance on this one. One day Credit Karma tells me that one of my accounts had been closed. I figured out it was this credit card. I called Chase to see why in the world they just cancelled my card for no reason. I was told it was becasue of inactivity even with a 95 dollar annual fee. They would not reopen the account for me. They said I could reapply.. WOOHOO. thanks! This cancellation had a relatively significant effect on my score with this being one of my oldest cards, not to mention the 20k reduction in available credit. The fact that they wouldn't reopen the account which was in perfectly good standing, and the fact that they "notified" me they were closing it by sending another piece of junk mail really left a bad taste in my mouth. I'll never open another Chase card again.

Chase promo said “spend 4000 before November and you’ll get 60000 points.” I had 230 more left to get the bonus and Chase closed the account because I spent too much toward my limit. Avoid this catch 22!!

I would focus on going back go school. I wouldn't approve you if you structured your sentences with all caps like a title and had so many grammar mistakes.

Good rewards
LM00 Cardholder

Credit Karma showed this as "fair approval odds for me" but I applied and approved instantly with a $5100 credit limit. My score before I applied was TU- 548 and Equifax - 549.  My scores on CK immediately jumped up to 581, so maybe they just hadn't been updated. When I got my welcome letter with the card, it showed my Fico score as 666.  Crossing my fingers this helps my score go up in the next few months.

EDIT: my Fico score was 566 (not 666- don't know how to edit my review)

Oct 14, 2019

That’s crazy! Did you have any other cards with over $5000 CL? Also, what’s your annual income?

Oct 15, 2019

No, I don't. Annual income is $75k

Oct 15, 2019

That’s awesome! Congrats! What’s your credit history? As in how long?

What was your credit score with chase when you were approved ?

Oct 11, 2019
Bull crap
Lissette31 Cardholder

They approve you fir the card wait until you start charging a decent amount and then closes the account they says you have to many cc accounts open. It doesn't matter if I have 20 cards if my cards are being paid on time making payments over minimum payment shouldn't matter. A RIP off

Beware of this card
Mrselman1967 Cardholder

Was approved for this card at $4000, received card and charged $95 annual fee.  After having only 4 days account was closed with no warning and no explanation. Meanwhile I currently carrier 2 Amex cards which are awesome, thank you Amex, capital one Mastercard and a Discover.  I later called chase to enquirer why account was close and was told I didn't have enough credit.  Credit scores were 747/751, no my credit report shows a closed account.

Oct 20, 2019

I was introduced to this card via Credit Karma reccomendations. I have been working on building my credit for about two years and finally got it up to above 700 with the help of the capital one platinum card also reccomended by credit karma. This is my first card with a high spending limit and the rewards are incredible. The rewards of being able to use my points to take my family on vacations are awesome, but the budget tools that the app provides help put spending into perspective and helps me budget and use my card resonsibly! Chase customer service is also incredibly available, no wait time around the clock. I have reccomended this card to many of my friends and even my mom haha

Best bonus rewards
Mtwils Cardholder

So. I woke up today and finally decided to apply for this card. 
I was nervous Bc the last thing you want to do is be rejected for a card and have a hard inquiry on your report. So with credit karma I had very good approval odds with a TU 728 Equifax 722 and my Experian from that app was 698. I also signed up for Chase Credit Journey. It gives you a free credit score and recommends Pre-qualifying cards. Well today the preferred popped up on it so I gave it a shot! Approved in seconds with a $6000 limit (which I'm ok with Bc it will definitely increase)  and not only that. But my bonus sign on was 70,000points. 10k higher than the offer is! So I'm excited to start using this card!
