I have worked on my credit for the last 7 years.  Tonight was the culmination of that work.  Over the last week, I have been researching cards and wondering which to apply for.  I have several cards now with starter limits (no more than $2600).  Up late, I decided to apply for NFCU Amex.  Boom was approved for $15k.  So I said what the heck, I will apply for the Chase Sapphire Preferred (TPG suggested this card over Reserve b/c of bonus).  Again, success.  I was approved for $7k.  This may not seem like a big deal to some, but for me.....this is a huge win.  My scores have been climbing steadily and now this should put me in the upper 700s.  To anyone out there working hard to improve your credit profile, keep working.  It will pay off.

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.

Enjoying it!
MrDebonair1914 Cardholder

I have owned this card for 3 months now and have enjoyed stacking the points to use for traveling for our honeymoon. I racked up the 60,000 points pretty quick and today without request or notification I received a automatic credit line increase. Lastly, the website and app are very user friendly when it comes to making payments, making purchases with stores to collect 2x-5x the points and setting travel notifications without contacting customer service.

what do you have to spend to accumulate 60K points? sounds like a lot.

Nov 17, 2019

Spend $4,000 in 3 months to receive 60K.

Beware of the fine print fees
Ragsley Cardholder

Unlike other cards, Chase uses cash advance to pull their interest charges.  This pushes the overall cost of this card to an exorbitant level.

Most credit cards have very unfavorable terms for cash advances, and I believe most people would advise never to do that unless there's some dire emergency. Also most of the "Rewards" type cards have terrible interest rates, and the only *correct* (from the customer's point of view) way to use these cards is to *never ever* carry a balance. As much as I love these rewards type cards, I also think of them as potential financial hand-grenades: don't pull the pin! :-)

Go to card

Applied and this card has become our go to card for most of our purchases. We easily made the 60,000 point bonus in a month and redeemed to cash which was also a breeze. I love how it comes up in my bank account and my digital wallet. It may be strange but the feel makes it seem like a luxury item.

Great Travel Rewards Card
SRH91 Cardholder

I have no complaints about this card. I am not a huge spender, but I still rack up thousands of dollars of travel rewards within a calendar year. The yearly fee of $95, at least to me, is very worth it to have this card. I have used this card now for a few years. If you're considering it, I would highly recommend you apply!

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!!

What was your credit limit on this account?

Nov 17, 2019

That makes absolutely no sense. Regardless of credit limit, people max out their cards all the time. As long as you make you monthly min payments, you should be fine well at least in theory

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.

Nov 07, 2019

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.

Oct 14, 2019

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?
