Nice, good luck with the next cards, they get easier to get as your credit history grows.

Chase is the best bank you can have a relationship both in terms of customer service and rewards. Congrats on the instant approval, Chase obviously likes you so make sure you keep it going. I have over two dozen credit cards and the CSP is still my go to card, so definitely make that your next target after you build a few months of good history with the Freedom

Thanks everyone! I'm super excited! :)

MaxP, yeah, CSP is definitely in my sights. I don't want a dozen cards. Just those 3 that I mentioned (gold amex, a one world airline card and a CSP)... I will keep my Citiforward card, but only because it is my oldest card. Eventually maybe I'll PC it to something else, but who knows. It's probably gonna get sock drawed soon anyways since it has like 18.99% interest. lol
