Don’t Miss Out on These 5 Sign-Up Bonuses If You’re Close to the “5/24” Limit

Update:   One or more card offers in this post are no longer available.  Check our Hot Deals for the latest offers. 

Million Mile Secrets reader, Myles, tweeted:

I’ve opened 4 new cards in the past 24 months.  If I get the Chase Amazon Prime card, will it count toward Chase’s “5/24” card limit and keep me from getting other Chase cards in the future?

Unless Myles gets certain small business cards, new cards from ANY bank will count toward Chase’s card limit.

Because Myles is just shy of reaching 5 new cards in the past 24 months, he’ll want to choose his next card wisely!

If you’re in a similar situation, the best choice for a 5th card depends on which cards you already have and your travel goals!

Million Mile Secrets reader, Seth, emailed:

If my application is denied for the Chase Sapphire Reserve, will Chase still count it against their “5/24 rule“?

Seth wants to know if Chase’s stricter application rules include all credit card applications you’ve submitted, including the unsuccessful ones.

The answer is NO!  As long as you weren’t approved for a new card, it will NOT affect your chances of being approved for other Chase credit cards.

Chase offers terrific credit cards with great perks and benefits to use for Big Travel.  But tougher application rules have made it more difficult to get approved for many cards issued by Chase.

But certain Chase cards are NOT impacted by the stricter rules.  Like The Hyatt Credit Card, which gets you 2 free nights at any Hyatt after meeting minimum spending requirements.

Reader’s Chase Small Business Card Approval Experience With 5/24 Rule

Million Mile Secrets reader Gerry sent us his experience applying for the Marriott Rewards Premier small business card.  Even with the stricter Chase card approval rules, he was approved, despite having more than 20 new credit cards in the past 24 months.

This is great news!  Because Chase has some of the best points and miles cards.  So finding an exception to the Chase approval rules might help other folks with card applications in the future!

Do Chase’s Stricter Approval Rules Now Apply to All of Their Cards?

Last year, Chase stopped approving many folks for some of their cards, like the Freedom and Sapphire Preferred, if they’d opened ~5 or more credit cards (from any bank) in the past 24 months.

Via Doctor of Credit and Reddit, these stricter rules now apply to more of their cards.
