Chase offers many terrific travel rewards credit cards, like the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card (my #1 card pick for beginners) and Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card (my #1 small business card pick).  But they also have strict application rules, which makes it difficult to get many of their cards if you open lots of new accounts.

Under Chase’s “5/24 rule,” Chase will NOT approve you for most of their cards if you’ve opened 5 or more cards (from any bank) in the past 24 months (NOT counting Chase business cards and these other business cards).

Applying for credit cards under this rule takes strategy!  Tell me yours, and you could win 6,000 United Airlines miles!

Link:   Comment on Our Chase “5/24 Rule” Post With Your Personal Strategy

To enter this giveaway, you must be signed-up for our free daily newsletter.  It’s the best way to ensure that you don’t miss out on amazing flight deals, big limited-time credit card sign-up bonuses, and any other important miles & points news!

You must also comment on this post telling me your credit card application strategy to deal with Chase’s 5/24 rule.

For example, if you’re already above the 5/24 limit, do you hold off on applying for personal credit cards just so you can earn Chase bonuses again later?  Do you apply for certain small business cards to make sure you stay under the 5/24 limit?  Or do you apply for credit cards infrequently enough that the rule doesn’t affect you at all?

The giveaway ends on December 24, 2017, (Sunday) at 9:00 pm Central Time.  Here are our sweepstakes rules.

We will notify the winner through email (NOT on the blog) within the next month.  So make sure you sign-up to our newsletter with an email you actually check!

Good luck!

I’m holding off on getting some Chase cards until a few drop off..then I’ll renew my efforts!

Since I REALLY want to have the Chase Ink Business card (and was recently turned down), I’m holding off applying for any new cards until I’m pass the 5/24 mark next April. I have quite a few cards already and some high points in a couple of airlines.

I was surprised to be turned down for the Chase Ink business card under this rule. My strategy for now is just to enjoy the benefits of my Chase Sapphire Reserve as much as possible and to keep an eye out for other great card offers in the meantime. I have enough points to travel on for now!

Right now I’m above the 5/24 rule but will have a couple of cards drop off in the next few months. Right now I’m focusing on maximizing my spending on the cards I have.

I have my wife do any applying until I’m under 5/24.
