carlock4's review: Callout Comment I applied for this card almost 2 weeks ago and got the "Your application is under review and you will receive a letter in the mail in 7 to 10 days explaining our decision" and I took that as a denial and went about my happy way. But today I was curious as to what really happened and called the underwriting department and spoke to 'Dave' and he asked me a few questions to verify my address and phone #, and said that he would put it in for a $2000 limit. After I got off of the phone I immediately called the application dept. And spoke the Chalise(sp?) and she asked a couple of questions and told me that I would receive the decision in the mail but I could call the automated number if I would like. I did and "Congratulations, you are approved with a credit limit of $2500 with a variable APR of 15.99%" I am calling tomorrow to combine my chase Visa with a $1000 limit and a 23.24% APR to the Freedom card.

Remarks If you think they will keep your initial rate you have another thing comming.

Chase will let you do all of your balance transfers then they will have a reason to raise your rate although they will never tell you what the reason.

I suggest you do not fall into the Chase games they pull because if you do, you may find that you have a 30% interest rate 6 months down the line. With Chase you should do what I do. I have a zero balance on it and it is burried in my underwear draw LOL. I only keep the chase card open as it it is my oldest open tradeline 24 years 9 months. Credit line on my chase is $48,000 rate is 12.99% uh huh, if I used the card the rate would go to over 25% I know Chases games.

Remarks Well unfortunatley I was denied for this card. I got the 30 day thingy, and I had forgot that I applied for it until the actual denial letter came in the mail over one month alter. Congrats on your approval, I will meet you on the approval end when they merge (or buy out) with cap one... Lol

Remarks I'm doing what porgy is doing right now..

after the introductory 0% for 12 months which ended Jan 2008, I stopped using the card, I'm just maintaining it for credit bureau reporting.

it's hard to ask for a credit limit increase with them..

RE: Eric User Icon on 2008-02-12

Remarks That's what the rumors are. I hope it's not true but what seems more realistic is that Chase will buy WAMU. I'm glad I don't have any WAMU cards. Lol
