Hope maybe to get a cli on Slate card maybe up to 5k limit first, but won't do if hard pull. that way I will have the 5k limit I need for Visa Signature on the MRP card. I also have 2 co-sign with my wife paid off loan accounts with Toyota for a 2006 Toyota Tundra & a 2009 Toyota Sienna van. we paid those off last year after 6 years of on-time payments. I am Jealous of my Wife, she has a Chase freedom visa signature with a 22k credit access, & she just applied for and got a Citi Diamond preferred with 8.8k Cl. Of course she has an avg. of 7yrs-7mths history no missed payments.
You don't absolutely need a pre-existing $5k CL to get Marriott (or other Chase Visa Sig cards). It's just a question of whether the issuer thinks you can handle one, and experience with a $5k line tends to suggest that.
The $22k Freedom is nice.
What made you get Slate and your wife get Diamond Preferred, though? Those are really meant as balance transfer cards. Did you get ads in the mail for them, and just assume they were the best you could get?
