I get the following offer in the email. I don't know how to get a public offer, since my name was in the application when I click on the offer link. You can try to call the CS or go to the bank and ask for it.

"Offer Details

Chase Freedom Unlimited Card
Before we approve you for a credit card, we will review your credit report and the information you provide with your response to confirm that you meet the criteria for this offer. Based on this review, you may receive a Visa Signature card or Visa Platinum card with different costs and/or benefits, or you may not receive a card. For pricing details, please see Pricing & Terms. For benefits details, please read your credit card benefits materials which will be mailed after your account is established.

$300 Bonus
This product is not available to either (i) current cardmembers of this credit card, or (ii) previous cardmembers of this credit card who received a new cardmember bonus for this credit card within the last 24 months.
You will receive 30,000 bonus points with this bonus offer, which can be redeemed for $300 cash back. To qualify and receive your bonus, you must make Purchases totaling $500 or more during the first 3 months from account opening. ("Purchases" do not include balance transfers, cash advances, travelers checks, foreign currency, money orders, wire transfers or similar cash-like transactions, lottery tickets, casino gaming chips, race track wagers or similar betting transactions, any checks that access your account, interest, unauthorized or fraudulent charges, and fees of any kind, including an annual fee, if applicable.) After qualifying, please allow 6 to 8 weeks for bonus points to post to your account. To be eligible for this bonus offer, account must be open and not in default at the time of fulfillment.

$25 Bonus
This product is not available to either (i) current cardmembers of this credit card, or (ii) previous cardmembers of this credit card who received a new cardmember bonus for this credit card within the last 24 months. You will receive 2,500 bonus points with this bonus offer, which can be redeemed for $25 cash back. To qualify for and receive your bonus, your First Purchase and addition of an authorized user to your account must both occur during the first 3 months from account opening. ("First Purchase" does not include balance transfers, cash advances, travelers checks, foreign currency, money orders, wire transfers or similar cash-like transactions, lottery tickets, casino gaming chips, race track wagers or similar betting transactions, any checks that access your account, interest, unauthorized or fraudulent charges, and fees of any kind, including an annual fee, if applicable.) After qualifying, please allow 6 to 8 weeks for bonus points to post to your account. To be eligible for this bonus offer, account must be open and not in default at the time of fulfillment.

Adding An Authorized User
All correspondence, including credit cards, statements, and notifications will be sent to the name and address on file for the primary cardmember. The primary cardmember is responsible for repaying all balances on this account. Authorized users will have the same charging privileges as the primary cardmember but will not be financially responsible. Chase provides account information to the credit reporting agencies for all account users. This information could impact an authorized user's credit score. When you tell us to add a user to your account, you're confirming that you have a relationship with the person or people whose name(s) and address(es) you've told us, that all their information is correct, and that you have their consent to add them. If Chase determines you've given us fraudulent name and address information or did not have such consent, Chase can close this account.

Cash Back and Points
Cash Back and Points: "Cash Back rewards" are the rewards you earn under the program. Cash Back rewards are tracked as points and each $1 in Cash Back rewards earned is equal to 100 points. When you use points to redeem for cash, each point is worth $0.01 (one cent), which means that 100 points equals $1 in redemption value. Redemption values for other reward options may vary. You may simply see "Cash Back" in marketing materials when referring to the rewards you earn. How you can earn points: You'll earn points when you, or an authorized user, use a Chase Freedom Unlimited card to make purchases of products and services, minus returns or refunds. Buying products and services with your card, in most cases, will count as a purchase; however, the following types of transactions won't count and won't earn points: balance transfers, cash advances, travelers checks, foreign currency, money orders, wire transfers or similar cash-like transactions, lottery tickets, casino gaming chips, race track wagers or similar betting transactions, any checks that access your account, interest, unauthorized or fraudulent charges, and fees of any kind, including an annual fee, if applicable. 1.5% Cash Back: You'll earn 1.5% Cash Back rewards for each $1 spent. This equates to $0.015 in Cash Back rewards, which is equal to 1.5 points, for each $1 spent. How you can use your points: You can use your points to redeem for cash through an account statement credit or electronic deposit into an eligible checking or savings account held by a financial institution located in the United States. Other redemption options include gift cards, travel, and products or services made available through the program or directly from third party merchants. When you use points to redeem for gift cards and travel, each point is worth $0.01 (one cent), which means that 100 points equals $1 in redemption value. Points expiration/losing points: Your points don't expire as long as your account remains open, however, you will immediately lose all your points if your account status changes, or your account is closed for program misuse, fraudulent activities, failure to pay, bankruptcy, or other reasons described in the terms of the Rewards Program Agreement. Rewards Program Agreement: We will mail you a Rewards Program Agreement containing additional rewards program terms once your account is established. If you become a Chase Online customer, your Rewards Program Agreement will be available online as well.

Zero Liability Protection
Zero Liability Protection does not apply to use of an account by an authorized user without the approval of the primary cardmember. If you think someone used your account without permission, tell us immediately by calling the Cardmember Services number on your card or billing statement.

Fraud Alerts
Delivery of alerts may be delayed for various reasons, including service outages affecting your phone, wireless or Internet provider; technology failures; and system capacity limitations.

Accounts subject to credit approval. Restrictions and limitations apply. Chase Freedom Unlimited credit cards are issued by Chase Bank USA, N.A.

It's Chase! Dogshit credit, or a credit history on par with bodily fluid or feces from any other vertebrate/invertebrate, will not help. Get'er fixed!

Easier said than done. I've had a secured card for 8 months now, and I've only gone up 80 points: 540 to 620. And it seems to be stuck there now, so that avenue is exhausted. I have 2 collections against me, one is some exhorbiant Cable bill from 10 years, and another, a department store credit that my mom ran up, again 6-7 years old. I don't understand why Collections are still affecting me, if they're so far behind in the past, shouldn't they have dropped off yet? I want to reach 700+ but I'm not about to pay over a grand in what is BS collection fees, that should've dropped off by now.

more than likely statue of limitations have expired, depends on your state laws... do investigate and do not agree to pay anything, as that resets it.
they might stay on your report even if "expired" but you should be able to press the bureaus to remove them

You're waiting for them to forget your debt? and wondering why you're stuck with bad credit? that's not how it works. Pay your dues!
