Sorry if this is a newbie question or this is the wrong thread for this. I've gotten tons of credit cards and points but this is my first time "churning" a card to get a benefit for a second time.  I just closed my United credit card and now want to reapply to get the 60k point bonus.  If I closed my card today, do I need to wait a certain amount of time for applying for the new one?
With Chase you can get the bonus again 24 months after the last time you got it.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred/Reserve cards are once in 48 months after receiving the sign up bonus for either card. Can't have both

Thanks, I know that part and it's definitely been 24 months. I kept it a few years for the perks.  I meant more like if I closed it Yesterday, can I apply for the new card on Sunday or Monday.  I have an offer when I log into United.com for 60k bonus that expires May 16th.  Can you cancel a card and then apply for the new one the next day?  Do people generally wait a month or two?

Ok under a "don't" I guess a week wasn't enough between closing my United card (which the rep made clear it is now CLOSED and your benefits will end immediately) and applying for the new one as I just got a number that I was declined due to already having the card.

I know I've seen it elsewhere, but can't find, it.  Can one of you send me the phone number for Chase reconsideration, as its not on my letter.

On your credit report it will still show up so it automatically gets rejected when you sign up for that same branded card. I donít think recon will help.

So then how long do I have to wait until I can apply for another United card? How long does it take to go off your credit report?

I just got the Hyatt card a few months ago just a week after paying it off and cancelling.

Thanks!

So I called again and they said it now shows closed and should go through (unless there is another reason I don't know of for them to decline it) although good news is that she said they did NOT do a credit pull on that application, I guess because it never got there when they saw I already had an account still "open."
