I applied for the Freedom card on February 6th. I applied over the internet and got this dreaded message Thank you for applying. Your application requires further review before making a decision.
Here's what you can expect:
-Our goal is to notify you in writing within 10 days; however, in some circumstances it may take up to 30 days.
-If you are approved, you will receive your card and other important information in the mail.
-Please do not resubmit this application.
I waited about 12 hrs, and with the help of this wonderful forum, I found the recon number and gave them a call.
Chase needed to verify a couple pieces of information from me and I was instanly approved with a CL of $3500
I was happy I was approved, but was disatisfied with the CL..
I talked to the same recon rep, asked if I could be transfered to their credit dept. for a CLI increase, he was happty to do so. Very great customer service so far!!
I got to the credit dept. with in like 2 mins, talked to the guy explained my situation and asked for a CL of $5k. He put my request through and said that my request went to a pending status and that I would hear something in writing in the mail.
Well FF to today, I got my Freedom card today in the mail... The first thing I went to look for was to see if my CL request had gone through or not.
Today I opened my welcome package, and my CL was increased from $3500 to $5k!!!!!
So stoked to use this card now!
