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)

Just applied. Do not have a 5/24 issue, nor a card benefit within the last 24 months. 805 credit score. Said it needs more time to review? Should I call? Is this normal?

targeted for the SW Priority card, 30% bonus for >/= 6K spend. If math serves well using FM’s RRVs, this works out to be 1.82% return for everyday spend. seems like would still do better with the Chase Freedom Unlimited (with CSR) which is 2.25% return. Thoughts? correct my calculations? The only advantage is that the miles count towards Companion pass.

I Upgraded to this card because Chase won’t give me one anymore .Does an Upgrade count on the 5/24 rule ?
