Application Tips

Chase Application Tips

  • Shut-Down Caution: Signing up for new Chase cards can lead to Chase reviewing your accounts. This may lead to Chase shutting down all of your accounts if you appear to be a credit risk. See this post for details and recommendations: Why Chase shutdowns have increased and how to avoid them.
  • 5/24 Rule: With most Chase cards, you won't get approved if your credit report shows 5 or more cards opened in the past 24 months. Details here.
  • 24/48 Month Rule: With most Chase cards, you can get the same card and bonus again 24 months after having received the bonus as long as you no longer have the card open. With Sapphire cards, you must wait 48 months. No wait is required for Chase Ink cards.
  • 30 Day Rule: It is tough to get approved for more than 2 Chase cards within 30 days
  • Get Same Card Again: You can get the same exact card and again if you first cancel the older card and follow the 24/48 month rule. Ink cards are OK to get again without cancelling previous card if you apply with a new business.
  • Better Offers: You may be able to get a better offer than the best available public offer. Details here.
  • Hard inquiries combine into 1 when approved same day (not always true when mixing business and personal)

I can not find a way to use/get a referral for a/any SWA business card. All links generated by holders of personal AND biz only offer ref bonuses for personal cards- and I missing anything here? any way to give SOMEONE 10,000 points in the process?

Jim

I just received this card and the recap sheet that the card was glued to included a couple extra perks that you did not mention in your article:
– Four upgraded boarding per year when available. (I don’t know if this means early bird check in or not)
– Global Entry or TSA Pre Fee Credit
– Inflight WiFi Credits

Jim

Upgraded boarding is A1-15, and retails for $30-$50 per flight. So this is another $120 – $200 benefit: https://www.southwest.com/html/travel-experience/upgraded-boarding/index.html?clk=GFOOTER-PRODUCTS-UPGRADED-BOARDING

Jim

Open Question: Are these upgraded boarding credits per calendar year or card year
