It appears the $200.00 signup bonus link is toast, but I did find a $100.00 signup bonus version:

HARD credit bureau pull – Experian
So says the credit monitoring alert service that I use
Chase had this on my master profile inside a few hours. I have already set my monthly payment method.

AARP Visa instantly approved but at 40% CL of my other Chase cards. (in total, I applied for five cards in a week – this was number three) I was debating calling in about that, but do not want to screw with my other two Chase Freedom cards. The card has arrived about five days after applying. I paid five utility bills upon receipt and security wanted to know what was going on. I have yet to manufacture any spending.
Any idea how much risk that I would be taking if I called in an asked about the CL? IF I wait six months, would I stand a better chance of a CL?
I am sitting on five hard pulls on two credit bureaus … all this year. Possibly a couple more this week. I have two rejection snail mails from other issuers coming. FICO8 about 720+

Some links to this offer have expired. Some only offer a $100.00 signup bonus. So keep any evidence that you signed up for the $200.00 signup bonus.
Just in time for tax payments – 0% APR one year of purchases.

This is the link that I was successful processing and instant approval:

Hi, has anyone received the cash back bonus yet? I got approved in mid Feb and met the 500 within that first week but nothing yet.

Never mind, I found it: “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.”

I am open to advice here about this card ’cause I would love to have this bonus.

I most likely will use it to prepay a utility bill which I find valuable as I only pay the convenience fee of $2.35 ONCE (to Chase, ironically) AND I can forget the bill for a couple of months especially as spring approaches and use of electricity is lower. With $500 spent, I might be able to make it through 3 months. Much easier than a GC.

So, with 15 inquiries on my record, anybody have an opinion whether I can achieve an approval on this one. Score: 780+ minimal guess.

Current Chase cards open: 3 (IHG, Slate, WN). Chase cards closed in 2015: 3

The inquiries:

Chase: probably 7, within 2 years. Auto: 1 or 2, with Chase being one, I think, Oct., 2014. Total: 15

“We’ll let you know of our decision through U.S. mail within the next 30 days.” With a 760 FICO I’m not used to non-instant approvals lol

Patience JB, patience 🙂

I take it “restaurants” includes all fast-food joints as well? Our annual spend in “real” sit-down and serve restaurants is close to nothing but fast-food is a different story 😉

JB maybe want to look at the US Bank Cashplus Visa with 5% at fast food joints. but only 2% at sit down restaurants. I am NOT aware of any signup bonus offers for that card.
