I called Chase the night I applied (Jan 3) and asked them to expedite delivery. I got the card yesterday and after activating the card I was able to book the hotel. I notified the lady who activated the card I was going to be using it on a large purchase and to not flag the account. I was then able to use the card today to get gas in a different zip code so everything seems to be in order. I have a 5K credit limit as well on this card. Is that about average for Chase? I was hoping to get double that amount, but I can always ask for an increase in 6 months. Is that the going amount of time to wait, 6 months? Lastly, the card is nice! I used it to buy lunch and the cashier looked at it a few times flipping it over in his hand. Ha, who would of thunk it, credit card envy...

6 months to wait is correct. 5K is where they started me as well, and I've seen others with a 5K limit. I assume it's fairly standard, and I don't have any other accounts with Chase I figured this is where they'd start me. 5K is the minimum credit line they will issue a CSP with. I've only had it since October so I'm not asking for a CLI until early May. Congrats on getting a great card! When I use it, I receive a lot of comments about it as well. My favorite so far was by a convenience store clerk. She said, "Wow, this card feels important or something." Made me chuckle.
