Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are willing to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

They won't give you the cc number over the phone. The quickest way to get the cc # is to ask them to overnight you the card.

 i think 6 is the cutoff time so call them before 6 to get by tomorrow.

Best way to do it is to add an AU and ask them to overnight the AU cc.

Does it cost money to overnight it?

Why is the best way to do it by adding an AU? Why not ask them to overnight the main card?

The main card takes about 10 days to get processed and then mailed out.

You can ask them to send you a duplicate of the primary cc, but if they realize that you haven't received the original cc yet, they probably won't do it.

Just use smart wording. . .

not really, if you ask for an overnight right after appeoval.
But it could also depend on the type of card, as I didnt have luck expediting 2 BA cards, all with the same answer that it takes time to process, but never had a problem with any other Chase cards, even co-branded like United or Hyatt.

I know to open an SP you need at least $5k to open it..what about other chase cards?

And also after its open does it still need $5k to stay open?

Is it possible to get approved for SP then HUCA for a different card right after and transfer some CL to get new card approved and leave SP with less than $5k?
