- Update: Denied for Chase Freedom Unlimited – DIAF!
UPDATE 3/31: I was denied. 🙁
Chase will soon (in April 2016) extend their restrictive 5/24 rule to all their card offerings, including co-branded and small business credit cards. And presumably to the new Chase Freedom Unlimited card when it launches online.
The 5/24 rule means if you’ve opened 5+ cards within the previous 24 months, you’ll be instantly denied for a new Chase card. I’m suddenly no longer their target market.
It’s the last week of March, which means this is my last crack at opening up that Chase Marriott Premier card or a Chase Ink Cash, for example.
Instead, I went with the Chase Freedom Unlimited, which will be available for online applications on April 7th, 2016.
However, you can apply in-branch or over the phone right now. (Or at the bottom of this page.)
So today, I strolled over to the Chase bank 2 blocks away on my lunch break (I still haven’t grocery shopped since getting back from Vipassana) and applied in-person for the new Chase Freedom Unlimited.
I love how the acronym for this card is, endearingly, FU.
