Awesome offer, worth using a 5/24 slot. With travel not happening anytime soon, the 5% at grocery stores effectively translates into 7.5% cash back with my sapphire reserve.

Just be careful with debt everybody. Learn from Dave Ramsey on YouTube and never look back on plastics. Use it and pay it off every month. Don't spend more than you make and give money to the banks on interest. Have a budget and live debt free.
Yup. That's common sense of course.

Call them and get a quick answer
I just did because I'm baffled. I called and they said the reason was "negative mark on my credit" and "negative history with chase bank". I then told him I am literally looking at my credit report right now, and I have zero negative remarks and a 800 credit score. Also, the only other Chase card I have is a amazon card that I pay in full every month and have never missed a payment. I asked him to explain. He said he could not. So now I'm afraid if my identity has been stolen. I'm hoping this is just an error on their front, because the reasons they listed are simply untrue. Is there any way to figure out what those message mean besides the vague two sentences he told me, that he said he couldn't elaborate on.

Hi, does this one good for building credit?
Typically, chase cards are approved with good credit. But definitely help to improve your score if you use it wisely. I won't put more than 20% on any card and always pif.

Ramsey offers great advice for people who don't understand why their check bounced when they still have checks left in the checkbook.

He gives terrible advice for responsible people to actually build wealth.

We make a lot of profit annually on credit card signup bonuses... thousands to tens of thousands per year depending on the offers and various statues for a given year...on top of the rewards for the routine spend you'd miss if you paid cash like Ramsey wants.

All without ever carrying a penny of debt or paying a penny in interest.


That's all wealth Ramsey would've told us not to bother acquiring because CREDIT CARDS BAD. DEBT AND CREDIT BAD. ALWAYS PAY CASH.


Debt and credit are excellent if used by responsible people who know how math and interest work.

We currently have both a mortgage and a car loan we could've paid off in cash, but it made no sense to do so when we could earn a ton more than the ~2% interest we're paying on that debt by investing the cash elsewhere.


That is certainly not everybody- and for those who that doesn't describe- sure- Ramsey.

I'm guessing the letter might say about the same. Might be worthwhile to drop into a chase branch and speak with an advisor, ask the same.

There's 3 credit bureaus-they don't all reflect the same data- possibly you checked a different one than Chase did?

I filled in the application. But it showed me that it was being processed and it never finished processing. I am super confused. Anyone knows how to deal with it?

Does anyone know how long this offer lasts? I want to sign up for it to get a discount on the Xbox Series X but that comes out around November and this card only works when its used within 90 days of opening an account. Any info on how long it lasts?

Call Chase and find out if it went through. They can look it up via your SSN.

What's the number? When I call card services it asks me for a reference number, which the rejection hasn't given me yet
