Our Take
Our Take

The Chase Slate is a great card for those of you looking to do a balance transfer or simply looking for a 0% APR intro deal on purchases. The intro period of 15 months is generous and very competitive. This card stands out because they waive the balance transfer fee if you transfer within 60 days of your account opening. Having said that, it is best to pay off your balance within the introductory period as the interest rate after that is not the lowest and actually quite high. The other thing to take note of is that this card has no reward program. You might also want to consider the Chase Freedom, which has a reward program and also comes with a 0% for 15 month introductory offer.  

According to our readers reviews, the average score they got approved for is 711. The lowest score our reader got approved was 596 while the highest was 804.

I have a chase freedom with $5000 limit. I wanted to do a balance transfer but decided to apply for a new card like Slate because there was no BT fee. I keep getting 0% offers from Freedom but I still have to pay the BT fee. I was shocked when I got only $500 limit only when Chase has me on $5000 for the Freedom card. I wasted a hard pull on this as I could have applied for another card from another issuer.

This card was an absolute waste of time for me. My credit score was about 746 (EQ) when I applied. All I got was a measly $4000 in credit lines. Most of my other cards are anywhere from $10,000 to $15,000. How am I supposed to do a decent balance transfer. They advertise their no balance transfer fee feature and then do not give you enough to do the transfer amount that you want.

This is one of the most deceptive ads and cards. They advertise 0% for 15 months and no BT fees. When I applied, I put down that I wanted to transfer $5000. I got a $500 limit instead. So I essentially wasted a hard pull on a card that I will not use and does not serve any purpose. It seems like you need really great credit to get the BT deal. My score was 690 and I have cards with $4000 limits so $5000 was not a pie in the sky thing. Unless you have really great credit, I would stay clear of this card.
