Quick approval. Excellent Service.
Yppec46 Cardholder

Applied for this with 758 TransUnion / 756 Equifax scores on CK. I got a notification that my application was under review, so I took another reviewer's advice (that I'd seen on here while researching) and called them the next day. Once I had an agent on the phone he simply picked my case from the automated system and set up the approval. I got a $7,000 limit right then. Relatively low for the average on here, but prior to this I only had one lower limit card on my record so, I can see the logic.

It was high-time I had a card with some clout, and this one has been very good to have so far. (It even just looks and feels cool!)

Once this card populated onto my credit record though, my credit shot up to 786/783 ... and I'm not at ALL mad at that!!  \,,,_

Issues in the UK
Gibral Cardholder

Ifthis card is designed for you to travel with then it is not fulfilling it's value. I went to UK and multiple areas in London, different parts of England, Wales and Ireland could not read the card. Places like McDonald's, Hamleys, etc. I'd say half of the retailers could not read it. Worst case was budget rent a car could not read it so I ended up having to use my debit card and having to pay extra ($250) for rental car insurance. Again, this should not happen if it is a card designed for travel that you have to pay $95 for.

Instant approval
didionkh Cardholder

Five star for application and approval process. Been rebuilding for a while now, currently 650s increasing monthly. I applied because CK said I had good approval odds. About 30 second application process, approved for $12,500. The card is on the way so I haven't used it yet. It appears that to make the card worth while (points vs annual fee vs everything else) you have to spend at least $3500 a year plus you need to spend $4k in the first 3 months to receive the 50,000 point bonus. Not sure if I'll use this card enough to be worth it. If nothing else, I have another card with a decent limit in my wallet.

Is this CK credit scores or your fico score? Thanks in advance

Dec 03, 2018

Based on my CK scores. FICO score is always higher.

Great Account to Hold!
Dincau92 Cardholder

I have a relatively high limit on this card ($30,000+). I use this card for everything and pay it off every month. The customer service from this account is better than any other I have ever dealt with, you are always connected with a live person within the united states. They will bend over backwards to help you whether it is with a dispute, questions, etc. Also, points add up quickly and the Ultimate Rewards account you get with it is incredible and you can use your points for just about anything you can think of. Also, the card is metal and you will always get compliments on it!

What's your income for a credit limit like that?

SomewhereVA Cardholder

I applied for this card but had a fraud alert. Had to add a number for them to call. Had just got the discover it card and amex delta. Had about 5 inquiries in last 2 years. They say they have a rule about 2 cards in 24 months. FICO was about 685, 660, 690. Called in about 3 weeks later...the agent put me on hold to review...came back in 2 mins and said you are approved w $5000 limit. Got them to expedition 3 days.

5 months ago my score was below 600 a personal loan from lending club to pay off credit card and my score shot up like 80 points...I was a Merrick bank, capital one platinum card guy 6 months ago...Now I'm a discover, amex, Chase sapphire guy. Life is good. By the way when they sent my card, they met also send the credit score they pulled to qualify you...they pulled 654...still approved! Lol

Lol! Nice. I had exactly the same situation as you.
Was below 600 earleir this year. A Credit one, First Premeir Card holder. Got a personal loan from Egg plus, paid off most of debt and score jumped 80 points and currently above 700.
Now have Amex Blue, Chase sapphire and Citi Double cash. Now with over 25K of available Credit. I want that Discover it card and I’m set. Life is good.
Forget those quick fix credit score companies.
Other than paying off the debt if you have that ability, Personal loans are where it’s at to quickly raise your score if your only issue is maxed credit cards.

Chase is #1
champstar Cardholder

Not only did they approve me for the highest limit I've ever been extended, but Chase also lets you transfer/move limits between accounts.  So I was able to increase the limit even more in order to take advantage of the 0% promo and Ultimate Rewards.  Chase is #1 for customer service hands down.

Instant approval-Instant Cancellation
ouellette210 Cardholder

Easy instant approval and send me a big thick envolope with all the suppossed reat great benefits along with card. Then they cancel it before I can even activate the card. What the heck is wrong with this place. Why even send a card out. I got a hard pull on my credit for nothing. No reason given for this awful treatment. Stay the heck away from Chase.

So ask for a reason then. Quit coming on here and logging in to different accounts just to leave multiple bad reviews. Yah, I see through the smoke and mirrors, buddy.

Chase treats you like dirt
SCHNOODLE3 Cardholder

Chase asked me to apply for this card from my Chase account web site, I have a 25 plus year relationship of of credit cards and bank accounts with Chase. They gave me instant approval, sent me the card 5 days latter, I logged in online a couple latter and the account is closed. No explanation, no letter sent. I'm done with you Chase. This is why you don't do business with Chase, expext to be treated like this.

You should've called and been persistent until you got an answer as to why. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, yo.

Approved fast! Great card!
TBlanks11 Cardholder

I initially applied for the card and was not immediately approved. After about 6 days I received the message that I was approved with a $10,000 CL. I have a 755 credit score. I am excited about this card!

Great rewards & Excellent Cust Service
Nashgatr Cardholder

Applied for this card back May and received an email saying the application was under review and I'd hear back in 30 days.  Credit Scores of 719 and 714, high incomes, no collections and low usage on only other card.  I waited a couple days, checked the reviews here and decided to call Chase.  They quickly advised I need to clarify a couple items on my application and once I did, I had an answer back in 2 days.  I then called and asked them to expedite and ship to an address in Europe so I could use it on my upcoming trap.  They gladly complied and the card arrived in 5 days, well before I did. Have loved using the card, never had it rejected or be unreadable and am building points rapidly.  Nothing but good things to say so far.
