Disadvantages

  1. $199 annual fee NOT waived the first year. Note that annual fee does not count towards the minimum spending requirement (and this is true for all credit cards)! 
  2. No annual free night certificates or elite night credits.

Recommended Application Time

  1. [5/24 Rule] If you have 5 or more new accounts opened in the past 24 months, Chase will not approve your application on this card, no matter how high your credit score is. The number of new accounts includes all credit card accounts, not only Chase accounts. See this post for details about how to possibly bypass this rule.
  2. Don’t apply for more than 2 Chase credit cards within 30 days, or it’s highly likely that you will get rejected.
  3. We recommend you to apply for this card after you have a credit history for more than a year.

Summary

This product is a bit perplexing beyond the signup bonus, as in almost all instances business owners would be better with the Chase Ink Business Preferred card that earns 3x transferrable Ultimate Reward points on most of the bonus categories. The primary reason to hold and put spend on this card will be for the elite nights/status and milestone benefits. Still, the value proposition for a $199 annual fee is not there for me to hold this beyond the signup bonus.

After Applying

  • Call 800-436-7927 to check Chase application status. This is an automated telephone line, and the information has the following meanings: Receive decision in 2 weeks means your application is probably approved; Receive decision in 7-10 days means your application is probably rejected; Receive decision in 30 days simply means your application requires further review and there’s nothing to tell you for now.
  • Chase reconsideration backdoor number: 888-270-2127 or 888-609-7805. Call it if you didn’t get approve immediately. Your personal information will be acquired and they will then review it. You seldom answer questions, instead, just enjoy the music and then you get approved or rejected, or further information is needed to be hand in to the branch or faxed.
