Card-Smart Tips & Advice
  • Credit: Good credit needed
  • Step by step guide how on to apply without an LLC or C-Corp
  • Chase 5/24 rule: Chase will decline an applicant that has opened 5 or more cards (other issuers included) in the past 24 months. Hence, 5/24 rule
  • Max cards: You can get approved for up to 2 Chase credit cards in 30 days. Business cards and personal cards are counted separately
  • Apply for two cards: If you apply for one Chase card and get approved, it is recommended to apply for a second card since Chase is very good about approving for two cards, even within the same day. If the first application is still pending, wait for it to be approved before you apply for a second card.
  • Not reported on personal credit reports: Chase Bank will not report business credit cards on personal credit reports
  • Credit bureau: Chase Bank will usually pull your Experian credit report
  • Combining same-day credit inquiries: Some data points suggest that credit inquiries for all Personal Chase cards for same-day applications will be combined; also, credit inquiries for all Business Chase cards for same-day applications will be combined. Credit inquiries for Personal and Business card applications will not be combined. 
  • Check application status: You can check your application status at  / Customer Center / Check my app status or call 1 800 453 9719
  • Reconsideration: If declined you can call 1 888 609 7805 to be reconsidered
  • Quickest way to get my card: You will be able to add your new card to your mobile wallet immediately after you get approved (it can sometimes take up to an hour for it to show up in your online login).
