    The threads got kinda long, so I will address the question again. Please forgive the redundancy. Who was approved or denied for a chase card . When did you apply? And which card(classic,gold,or plat) did you apply for. Also if you dont mind, how is your credit? Smoochies.

    RE: Upgrade talk

    You mentioned the 6 month upgrade. I thought I remembered you saying in a previous post to pick your card wisely, because they don't do upgrades/product changes. You have to apply for a whole other card.

    Please let us know if you were told/found out different.

    Applied for Chase Platinum 07/00 and was approved. Not instant approval though. Took about 14 days to get card. Have never checked credit score but I guess can't be too bad.

    RE: Upgrade talk

    ???. Yes, you do have to pick them wisely. But A rep told me that a review would be done in 6 months. They do upgrade. Oh I remember, I said that I could not upgrade like Citibank. I called and they told me to apply for a whole new card. I was trying to get a reg classic instead of the card.

    Just looked over hubby's TU, he did apply in July of this year and got denied, I would assume b/c of the unpaid collection.

    RE: correction

    Thanks sam,
    Sound like unpaid collections are not getting past them.

    I dont know where you keep getting this info, but paying the debt can not restart the clock, especially for newer debts (1997 or newer).

    I applied for the Classic card last month and got the big "NO BUZZER." I have a judgement (which I have made a settlement on and am currently paying), some paid collections (some of which went away in my last round of disputing!), and two annoying unpaid collections (which I am in the process of settling on). Like you, I am fairly sure that these are the big problem.

    Since July 1997, I have never been late on any of my tradelines. I was an authorized user on a Chase account in 1997-99 for credit building purposes....but they apparently didn't take that into account.
    I guess I'll stick w/Cap One and Marin for now.

    RE: Also Sam

    Well my debts are all 96 or older, i guess im going by the old book :)

    I'm not touching a single creditor, since they all drop by 05-2003. I dont foresee needing to buy a house any time soon,(nor can afford), and with $6500 of credit lines, im more than satisfied.

    crap with citi and aria worked good i'll be over $10k in credit within a year.

    I think i owe $1100 total right now on all my cars due to crimmas, and that scares the heck out of me interest wise.

    Denied, of course. I had a BK 7 - 05/93. I talked to customer service - "As long as a BK shows on your CR, you will be denied. Please feel free to re-apply in 2-1/2 years"

    Completely paying off (or settling for less as full settlement) will not "restart (any) clock", regardless of age.

    The "clock" referred to here is the seven year time period (+/- 180 days depending upon age of delinquency) that a derogatory item can be reported by a creditor on any of your (three) credit bureau histories. The "clock" begins at what is referred to as the 'original delinquency date' -- the date on which the account first became delinquent /b{and never again became current}. By paying it off, it's not "current", nor does it change the original delinquency date. The STATUS of the account will be changed to something similar to "PAID/WAS CHARGE-OFF" or whatever the previous status was, but the original delinquency date WILL NOT CHANGE. This goes for any debt that was settled for less than the orignal amount (i.e., a $5k debt for a repossession on a car that you agreed to pay $2500 as the settlement in full) as well.

    HOWEVER -- making payment ARRANGEMENTS for an old debt CAN restart the clock, because you are essentially bringing the account "back to current status" (no longer delinquent) -- and therefore it's considered current, but the old history (depending upon age) of the SAME account can remain.
