    Default New Chase accounts = Success!

    So I've had my Chase Slate card ($4,400 limit) for about 11 months now. I previously had it along with a Freedom, but merged the 2 cards into a single Slate card for a promo of 0% APR for 15 months as I had some large purchases I needed to make. I rarely used my Slate card as I use my Delta AmEx whenever possible. I do travel for pleasure a few times a year and saw the sign up bonuses for the British Airways visa and decided to go ahead and apply. Approved for $6,500 limit. Then a few days later I saw the CSP card with the sign up bonus, and thought it over for a few days. Decided to pull the trigger. Got approved for $5,000. So, 50,000 BA Avios & 40,000 points on the CSP = cheap travel in 2013! Sure have come a long way from my original Chase issued Sheetz MasterCard in 2010 with a whopping $200 limit at opening. Yes, $200. Back in 2005 no one would even dare approve me for anything. Took a while, but with discipline I sure have brought my credit way up from what it used to be.
