Tips
3/12 Rule: Difficult to get approved if you’ve opened 3 or more cards with any bank in past 12 months (7 cards in 12 months for those with deposit accounts) To get same card again, some cards require waiting 24 months from opening. Others require waiting 24 months from closing. Consumer card applications: Limit 2 per rolling 2 months, 3 per rolling 12 months, and 4 per rolling 24 months. Hard inquiries are usually combined into 1 when initiated within 30 days but there have been reports of TransUnion not combining. YMMV. BOA may enforce a 5 personal card limit

FM Mini Review: Similar to the Venture X consumer card, the business version offers annual rebates that easily mitigate the fee for those who travel often and could be worth it for the lounge access and travel protections given the cost/benefit ratio. Unlike the Venture X, free authorized users do not get Priority Pass access. The card earns 2 "miles" per dollar on most purchases just like the Capital One Venture X Rewards card, which are worth exactly 1 cent each toward travel. This makes the return on most spend similar to a 2% cash back card (though in this case you must redeem your miles to offset travel in order to get 1 cent per mile). One big advantage over cash back: Capital One allows transfering their "miles" to airline miles & hotel points.

Click for details. 5/24 Rule: Usually won’t be approved if you’ve opened 5 or more cards in past 24 months Hard inquiries combined into 1 when approved same day Usual max 2 new cards per month (but rule seems to vary)
Under very rare circumstances, signing up for new Chase cards can lead to Chase reviewing your accounts.

FM Mini Review: This is an almost 1 to 1 copy of Capital One's Spark Cash Plus card, but the Chase card throws in 2.5% earnings on very large purchases. Unfortunately, the Chase card also has a slightly higher annual fee. The biggest disappointment about this card is that, unlike other Chase Ink cards, the rewards cannot be moved to other Chase cards to improve their value. Even though this card technically earns Ultimate Rewards points, it's best to think of it as a straight up cash back card. Click here for our complete card review
