Chase Freedom Approval

Postby ceemee » Sun Jan 12, 2014 2:57 pm

I've been looking for a new cash back card that has no annual fee to start using with my BCE instead of my Amex PRG (which I haven't decided whether or not to keep yet).

I got approved for $5,000 w/ 0% intro APR although I always pay in full. Kind of nice because 2 years ago, when I was approved for the Chase Amazon card, they'd only give me $400 and I denied a CLI after taking a 2nd hard pull a few months after opening and using faithfully.

I don't love the look of the card (although I haven't seen it up close) but the cash back structure seems nice and I know people swear by the card. Plus, I pre-ordered a Coin so not too much of an issue.

They told me it should be a Visa Signature, which I hope is the case.

This card looks much better in my opinion up close than the pictures do. I think you'll like it. It's actually a beautiful card.


Congratulations on your approval!

Congrats. Mine was only a regular Visa although all my other cards are a signature. Not a huge issue I guess for me as I only use the Freedom for the categories that give a bonus. It's a great card.

Thanks for the info.

They said it should be delivered today so I'll see when I get home. Question, since Starbucks is one of the 5% categories this quarter, do I have to pay for drinks using the card or does re-loading my Starbucks card suffice?

Reloading your card should count. It says it counts all Starbucks.com and Store purchases.

What is online:
Offer limited to purchases at participating Starbucks® locations, at StarbucksStore.com, and through the Starbucks mobile phone application (including Starbucks Card purchases and reloads).

Yup, it showed that on the Chase site when I activated my card. And my new card is definitely a Visa Signature, says so right on the front. Nice.

It's also much better looking in real life than in pictures. Pretty excited. Can't wait to start using.
