I applied back in March and was denied due to not having another CC with a similar credit limit of the $5000 minimum on the Sapphire Preferred. Back then my FICOs were EQ704 and TU709. After 6 months of working on my credit and getting new cards with larger limits, and getting increases on current cards, I applied last week and was approved!! I was approved with FICOs of EX715, EQ729. My AAoA is 3+ years, utilization of 1%, and my other CLs were $4250, $4000 and 2 $1250. They instantly approved me for $5000! Called the regular customer service number and had them overnight it to me for Friday because I wanted to book a trip. It didn't end up arriving. Ended up calling the Sapphire specific line and had them overnight it to me for Monday. I did receive it Monday but not at my business address as I had requested. O well, atleast it wasn't stolen out of my mail box(I live on a busy street)

So far I love it. It's a beautiful card, and has some heft to it. I've already received many compliments on it. The 40,000 bonus points(after spending $3k) surely doesn't hurt as I have already almost reached $2k spending on it.

Booking flights through Ultimate Rewards mall isn't cheaper in my experience. It does give you 3 points/dollar. But you can book through another travel website via a link on the site, and it will give you 4points/dollar, and its cheaper.

This card gives you 2 points/dollar when spent on travel(including taxis and tolls), 7% dividend on points earned in the year, no forex fees. Also if you have the Chase Trifecta(a chase checking account and the Freedom cards) the rewards really start adding up!

Having spent the summer time forking over a couple hundred bucks to Lexington Law, I ended up with a perfectly clean EQ file.  A bit thin, but luckily for me, I paid off a $40K Chase car note a decade ago.

Applied last Thursday (it's now Tuesday).  Wasn't auto approved because of fraud alert.  Called Recon, told I needed to speak to Verification.  Verification sent me to local branch to show my DL, they asked me a bunch of questions.

Voila.

Told them to send expedited.  Arrived UPS today.

$34K credit line.

Game on Europe!

I'm new to CK and was given a 713 score with Experian giving me a 749.  I only have a few cards with limits not exceeding $3k.  I wanted a card that gave me travel benefits and rewards and had a Fair Approval Odd, according to CK. I decided to go for it and was instantly approved for $12k. Still a bit shocked I got a limit that was this high as I previously never had anything above $3k.  Thanks to this my Utilization is under 10% and my scores went up.

I applied on line and was instantly approved.  

Chase is the only issuer I know of that lets you take credit line from one Chase account, and add it to another.  I had been using a Chase Southwest Rapid Rewards Visa, and since this card fits my needs better, and has even better rewards, I closed that.  I was able to take the credit line from that and add it to my new Sapphire Preferred account, with just a phone call.  This allowed me to close the old account without lowering my overall available credit. 

Also, the day after I applied, I called and they were able to overnight my new card to me, which was extremely helpful. 

I'd been using the SW Rapid Rewards Card from Chase, and had been impressed with the customer service with that card.  However, this one is even more impressive.  Live person answers anytime you call, and they are always knowledgeable and helpful.

The customer service is excellent! Their automated phone menu is very efficient. Customer service representatives are very friendly. When being transferred to another department on the phone, the original representative stays on the line, on hold with you if necessary, then introduces you to the next department rep, WOW!
