CHASE offers of Freedom card AND Slate card

Recommended Posts

I applied for the Chase "Freedom" card last week after being getting a pre-approved letter from them and now waiting for a reply and today I received an offer from them for the Chase "Slate" card. I received it exactly 7 days from applying online to their "Freedom" offer. Are these 2 offer linked together in some way you think? Does me receiving this Slate thing a week after applying for the Freedom mean anything?

Do you think I should call them and see if I've been approved for the Freedom card? Do you think I should apply for this Slate thing right now? When I applied for the Freedom last week my BofA secured visa was right at the limit, but since then it's gone to UNsecured and my limit has been raised to $500 AND I paid it off and it's at $0 now. Will me paying off my visa and it being at $0 help my situation? That's a dumb question I suppose though. :)

I would wait until I hear approved or denied before applying for the Slate card.

If you are denied for the freedom you will most likely be denied for Slate.

I was curious about the status of my pre-approved Chase Freedom offer and decided to call them and whoa, I was approved and they gave me a $5,500 CL/credit limit.For some reason I was thinking the Chase Slate card was something special, but after reading the this site, CIC, I found out it doesn't impress me. I will NOT be applying for this ... SLATE thing. I see no reason why with the Freedom card and its $5,500 CL.

yay!! Glad you got an approval.

I think what is different about Slate is the blueprint. I think you get to choose from 3 different ways to pay your bill.

Hi and thanks. I'm glad I got approved too! I'm glad to have a "real" credit card or rather a "real" limit other than the little $500 CL on my Bank of America card. Once I read about Slate some online I decided to just put everything back in the envelope and not deal with it. I found it funny that some said that a person is sure to get screwed by Chase having several ways for a person to pay/carrying a balance. I tend to agree with that. :) I'll just go with my soon to be delivered Chase FREEDOM card. xdancex I've never had a card with such a high-limit before. I'm already thinking about how disciplined I'll be with it, so I won't mess up again.

yay!! Glad you got an approval.
