Aprroved for Discover IT, Too Soon to Apply for Chase Freedom?

Postby Piaffe3 » Fri Mar 28, 2014 3:00 pm

I was just approved today for a Discover It Card for $6,900. I would like to apply for a Chase Freedom card as well. My question is should I go ahead and do that now or wait for a few months? Would I have a decent shot now or is it better to not apply for a different card so soon?

My Transuion score is 768, Equifax is 740, and Experian is for some annoying reason sitting at 698. **On a side note I won a dispute (about 4 months ago) with experian where they incorrectly showed I had an account in collection instead of never in collection, paid in full** They still haven't raised my score. I have no negatives on my credit report. Just a high utilization rate which is the reason why I would like to get another card with no balance to help this utlization rate while I pay off my credit union card which has 9K in debt on it.

Thanks all!

I would try to lower your utilization for best chances. You might get it anyway but Chase doesn't like high utilization so if you want the best odds I'd address that first.

Since you're already took the hit, I think you should try the Chase Freedom also. Doesn't cost anything!
