Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are willing to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

Are you talking about 5/24? Chase won't give you a new card if you've opened 5 new personal cards of any bank within the last 24 months.
7/10, I'm not familiar with.

Thanks for responding, is there any rule for business cards regarding opening too many business cards in a short period? And what is the ideal wait time to wait between  opening chase business cards (if I'm not 5/24 yet

Thanks

I don't know.
But business cards don't count towards 5/24, but are governed by it. ie If you're already 5/24, you won't be approved, but if you're not, each biz card won't add to the count.
Keep in mind that other banks may have an informal tally similar to chase, but they're the only one I know of who's count is set in stone, so they get the first apps in each round.

Yes. I believe this was specified on the MS post.

Yes, the Barclay Arrival Plus is offering 70000 , I applied for it for my brother last week, was instant approval, but he was at 0/24 . He has all the Chase cards he wants for now.
