Chase Recon Could Not Give Me Answer - Am I done?

Just called the Chase recon line regarding my Sapphire Preferred application.


Called up and spoke to a really nice gentleman for about 15 minutes. I had a security freeze on Experian and I gave him the pin to lift that.


He asked me a few questions about my BK in 2010. He asked about my mortgage and income. Then put me on hold for about five minutes and came back saying that he had to send it up the ladder for further review because of the BK. He said in 7-10 business days I would either get my card in the mail or an explanation for the decline.


I asked him what his thoughts were and he said he was satisfied and he had been doing it for a long time and he had was good at reading credit... but yet it was forwarded for further review.


Anybody get this message before? I really need to stop applying for cards!

I got this exact same response for a chase freedon card. A little over two years post BK. Ended up getting the approval.



Good Luck! Rep said that she is recommending for approval!!!

Related question -- if you're shooting for a card that requires "excellent credit" like the CSP, and the rep on the phone is not sounding hopeful about approval, would it be possible to switch boats midstream? Switch the application to a "consolation prize" cc that still has decent benefits?


What if Lethargic would have read the tea leaves, and determined it was pretty unlikely the CSP would be approved. But, had he/she done a bit of homework ahead of time and had a backup card in mind, would the phone rep be able to handle a request like "Hey, it sounds like it may not go through. Do you think we could just change the application to a _____ Card instead?" (Like, Freedom, United, Amtrak, something that may have less stringent underwriting standards).


Otherwise, if the applicant waits for the letter in the mail, presumably Chase would need to do another Experian hard pull before filling out an application for the consolation prize card.


Or, a variation, would be to finish the CSP application, then call in again and apply for the lower card on the same day, and have two applications in the system at once.


creditcards.com lists the "Freedom" as only requiring "fair credit". http://www.creditcards.com/fair-credit.php Bob Wang had some charts on this a while back showing approvals by credit score by card by issuer, but I haven't been able to find them since.


Just curious.

Any update to this or anyone else experience this?


I just called for recon on a 7-10 notice for Freedom. Had a C/O they inherited over 7 years ago.


Spent over 20 minutes on the phone with him. At the end, he said my history looks great after the 2007 catastrophe but he needs to send my app up to the senior UW.


Said I can call back in 48-72 hours or wait for news by mail.


I wasn't sure if this was a blow off or I should still be hopeful.

      On my way to Atlanta yesterday I got a text. I was suspicious
      When I got home I checked out online banking, nothing
      I then checked my email, email from Chase Fraud
      I clicked the link in the email, page error
      I called today.
      Actual card was used to purchase $200 at a dollar store in Columbia SC. Chase said it was in in store purchase so someone had replicated my card.
      My Freedom card was used at Home Depot and Target.
      New account
      One more TL
      This is the 2nd CC of mine to get hacked in the last 2.5 years.

      Back in 2010 I filed ch 13 bankruptcy, converted to 7 in 2011 and discharged in Jan 2012. House was included and I never reaffirmed or paid the mortgage..stayed in home paying taxes and insurance waiting for them to foreclose. EMC and Chase sold the servicing to realtime resolutions. Debt for home was discharged and shows on report as included in bankruptcy. Last spring I recieved a lien release for 2nd mortgage and now yesterday I recieved a lien release for my first mortgage from Chase. Since the debt was discharged, did the bank just give me a house?

      Hey fellow CBers:
      I hope everyone is enjoying themselves during this time of year. I have a question. On December 15th I FINALLY embarked on my app spree after putting it off for longer than I had wished. Well it paid off (more to come on that in another post! )
      My question is, I checked my mail on Tuesday and had an Invitation to apply for the Freedom Card. Here is my dilemma/question:
      1) During my spree I app'd for and was approved on the CSP $22K and Ink Plus $10K (though I feel that I could have received more had I answered other usage questions with higher numbers). So will this Freedom Invitation be null and void with those recent approvals?
      2) If I can apply, do I apply NOW? Or wait til I B* TU and freeze EX? (I am worried if I do this the new accounts will be reporting by then (total 6) and as of right now only Barclay's is reporting with 6 INQ on TU, but I can't freeze EX via online, says I must mail in, so I will call Monday.
      Any and all recommendations are appreciated! Thanks to all again, I will be updating CPDB and posting my approvals in the next few days. I know they are baby steps, but I am very happy with results and have CB and all of the awesome members here to thank!!!

      A little background....
      I spent the last few years with FICOs bumping around between 650 & 680 as a result of several charge-offs and their associated late payments. The last one aged off in late October and when my scores didn't pop up at all I discovered there was a misreported delinquent account on all three reports. With the help of all you great folks here at CB I got that removed and BAM! 770s across the board in November!
      That left me with three cards in my portfolio-
      Merrick Bank @ $3100
      CapitalOne QS @ $1000
      DCU Visa @ $6000
      As soon as my scores popped up I went on a bit of a spree-
      CapOne CLI to $4000
      Sallie Mae @ $12,500
      Double Cash @ $8000
      DCU CLI to $10000
      BofA Better Balance @ $9000
      Planning a vacation soon I realized I could use Sign-up bonuses to cover some of the major expenses, so...
      Last Night - US Airways @ $10000
      Which left me looking for a hotel card. Decided to go for the Chase IHG Rewards because it seems to be the quickest to get some free nights and
      BOOM! Approved for $24000! Nearly double my highest limit.
      That's five new cards and $70,500 more in credit (a seven-fold increase!) in less than 5 weeks.
      Couldn't have done it without all the great info and advice shared by so many generous folx here at CB!

      Hello everyone. Happy Holidays. I received an invitation to apply for the Chase Slate card. Applied and received a decline. The decline is based on my TU, per the decline letter. I had no baddies, until Ocwen started reporting a mortgage that I lost in 2008, and stating that I was late in 2013, but now its current. I don't know if I should call chase and if i do, I don't know what to say. any advice?
      One or more accounts are not paid as agreed
      Length of time since oldest credit card was opened is too short
      Length of time since newest account was opened is too short
      Too many accounts opened in the past 12 months.
