Hyatt Credit Card now 5/24? BA as well? Maybe 5/48? Something is afoot at Chase.
Something is happening over at Chase. And I’m not sure what exactly yet but something is definitely happening.
This is news for two reasons:
- The World of Hyatt Credit Card was not previously subjected to the 5/24 rule.
- They are indicating a denial based on the number of new cards in the last 48 months. This is a confusing data point because the 48 month rule has started being applied to Chase Sapphire Reserve and Chase Sapphire Preferred cards (no bonus if you had received a bonus on any Sapphire product within the last 48 months) but the 48 month rule had not been applied to any other product and, also, these people didn’t have a previous Hyatt card that I can tell.
As a reminder, the current bonus on the The World of Hyatt Credit Card is up to 60,0000 Hyatt points. 40,000 when you spend $3,000 within 3 months and 20,000 more as long as you spend a total of $6,000 within 6 months.
One datapoint suggests this may apply to the British Airways card as well.
Something is afoot. I’m not sure *exactly* what yet. More data points would be greatly appreciated. At this rate, people who love travel credit cards will not be able to get any Chase credit cards, ever.
