Chase Hyatt is one of the cards that wasn’t included in the 5/24 rule, meaning that you could get approved even if you have more than 5 new cards in the last 24 months. But seems like that has changed now. There’s a few data points showing the people are getting turned down for the Chase Hyatt card for being over 5/24. The change has probably happened this week.
It was rumored a few months back that the 5/24 rule might be expanded to include all cards. As of now, these is the list of cards that are affected or not from 5/24:
Cards Under 5/24 Rule:
- Chase branded cards such as Freedom, Slate & Sapphire Preferred
- Chase Ink Business Cards
- Marriott Co-branded personal card
- United Co-branded cards
- Southwest Co-branded cards
- World of Hyatt
Cards NOT Under 5/24 Rule:
- IHG Rewards Club
- British Airways
- Air Lingus
- Marriott Co-branded business card
It looks like the rumors were true, and if so, more cards should start falling under 5/24 soon. It might be best to go for some of the cards you have your eyes on sooner than later.
Let me know if anyone has come across this issue in the last few days.
