Many folks are excited about the perks of the new Chase Ritz-Carlton card offer. Like earning 3 complimentary nights after meeting minimum spending requirements to use for luxury stays at hotels in the US, Caribbean & Mexico, Europe, or Asia.
Because this card is issued by Chase, many are wondering if the bank’s stricter application rules apply.
Based on several sources, even if you’ve had lots of new cards in the past 2 years, you CAN still get approved for the Chase Ritz-Carlton card. But this doesn’t mean it’s automatic.
The Stricter Chase Application Rules Don’t Appear to Apply to the Ritz-Carlton Card. This Means You Might Be Eligible to Earn 3 Complimentary Nights at Luxury Hotels Like The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe!
I’ll explain more about this exciting news!
