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.
If You’ve Opened 5+ New Credit Cards in the Last 24 Months, You’ll Find It Tougher to Be Approved for Certain Chase Cards
While there’s no official word from Chase about this change, I’ll share what I know and what this means for you.

Marriott Rewards Elite Members Can Get a Dedicated Concierge During Their Stay
The Elite Concierge Service will at first be available ONLY to a select group of Marriott Rewards Elite members but will be expanded. You’ll get a dedicated concierge to help with anything you need during your stay, like on-site restaurant reservations, spa appointments, and special requests.
The Guaranteed Late Check-Out perk will be available to Marriott Rewards and Ritz-Carlton Rewards Gold & Platinum Elite members starting May 16, 2016. You’ll be able to check-out as late as 4:00 pm at participating hotels.
