Will the New Chase Rules Change My Application Strategy?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Jill, writes:

You’ve reported about how Chase is denying applicants with more than 5 credit cards opened in the past 24 months.  I was turned down even though I have a 822 FICO score.

How many cards do you expect to apply for in a year?  Many months ago you wrote that you and Emily apply to between 12 to 15 cards a year.  Is that still your strategy (even after the changes with Chase)?

Chase is making it more difficult for folks with 5+ new cards (from any bank) in the last 24 months to be approved for the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Ink Plus, Chase Ink Cash, Chase Freedom, and Chase Slate cards.

Will The New Chase Rules Change My Application Strategy

If You Have 5+ New Cards (With Any Bank) in the Last 24 Months It’s Unlikely You’ll Get Approved for the Chase Freedom, Ink Cash, Ink Plus, Sapphire Preferred, and Slate Cards.  So Now What?

Find out more about the new criteria Chase is using and why it will NOT change my application strategy.
