Applied Thursday night; both me and the wife approved. No Chase cards in the last 6 months, but lots of pulls for Citi churning. Doesn't seem to have mattered.

If one is denied, does the auto application status system tell you so, or does it simply say that you will get a response in about two weeks?

Thanks.

OK, here's another wrinkle --

The 800-number message gives me the "we'll notify you in 2 weeks in writing" message, but I (and my wife) have received emails from BA welcoming us to British Airways Executive Club (we weren't members before).

So does THAT mean our applications have been approved? It would be kind of mean to deny us the credit card but sign us up for the ff program.

They came last night (Sunday). I applied on Friday.

The application says, "If you are not already an Executive Club member, you will automatically be enrolled upon approval for the Visa Card."

So I shouldn't be enrolled unless I was approved. Unless they screwed up and are being mean!

I applied right after the link opened but am still pending, so don't give up hope if you are a bit behind.

Note: I use the site www.creditkarma.com for a free estimate of my FICO score. Remember, it's just an estimate, but the number they gave me was awfully close to the FICO score I paid for, so it seems to be a reasonably good one.

In California, IME both Chase and Citi use Experian for their credit pulls.
That's good advice. I haven't received a response yet, and I'm thinking it's because I have one card with a $45k line and a lot of 2.99% life-of-loan money sitting on it.

If I get bonged because of Chase's total potential exposure, I could probably reel that limit in somewhat and take a different card's limit down to nothing (or to a couple thousand...or whatever they want).

j3brooklyn,

How do you know you were approved (email, call, etc)?

OK, for the impatient (like me), here's an auto application status to check the application status:

800-945-2006

then press #, the 1, then enter your SSN.

while i still have a dislike of BA because of the India fiasco...It was too sweet of a deal to pass up. i applied and was approved. A business class award ticket to S. America sounds nice. My first opportunity to sit up front. ^ surely makes up for everything else.
