Though I know it’s not true, that would certainly change things if it was 😀

Wonder how many people will never in their lives be able to get a United card because of 5/24? Wonder if United knows how many there are?

Is business card (Explorer Card for Small Business) also scrutinized under 5/24 rule? I am seeing 50k offer for Explorer Card for Small Business in my United account. I was recently(2weeks ago) declined for chase sapphire reserve card due to 5/24 rule.

Are mailer offers exempt from 5/24? Can’t remember. Got a mailer offer for 50K Explorer. Not sure whether or not to go for it.

Just checked and my wife is showing no annual fee but no 75 bonus points.

She was just approved for the card last month – is she able to request to match the annual fee via SM?

Also can she request to match the 75k miles even though she is not targeted for it?

Certainly can’t hurt to ask!

I got in on this card last year with an 80k targeted offer. I am going to cancel this year though as I have no need for the card after the points are gone.

to echo others, if targeted, does that provide any leeway in 5/24?

DP: Targeted; over 5/24; Private Client; rejected. This was the second time since early December 2016 that I’ve been rejected by Chase due to 5/24 despite being Private Client. Both times I asked for reconsideration due to Private Client status and they told that they no longer did that.

Thank you for a great article! Could you please clarify one thing for me? I read earlier today on this website that it is possible to stack different offers for the same card(it was in the article about maximizing the sign up bonus and the example given was with the IHG card). I was wandering if it would be possible for me to stack the two offers I am receiving for the UnitedPlus Explorer Personal card. I got an offer in the mail for 50k after spending 3k in the first 3 months, af is waived the first year. When I do a dummy booking through MileagePlus, I am getting an offer for 40k after spending 2k in the first 3 months, af is waived the first year +$100 statement credit after the first purchase. Is it possible for me to get the 50k points AND the statement credit? If it is, how do I do it?

Probably not, but here’s what you could try:
1) sign up for the 40K + $100 offer, and meet the spend requirement
2) secure message Chase to ask if you can be matched to the 50K targeted offer that you received (give them the offer code)
If you’re lucky, they’ll match you to the 50K offer without taking away the $100 you earned.

So all the comments dating to January, 2017, seem to indicate this is either last year’s offer repeated or last year’s post recycled or both. Some other reason I didn’t notice?

Greg The Frequent Miler

I’m not sure what you mean. This IS an old post. Did it get re-posted somewhere?

Mike

Seems so. Got Shawn Coomer’s mugshot and byline. Russian interference in US travel hacking? Now they’ve gone too far.

What I mean is: where did you see this post resurface? Was it sent to you via email? Twitter? RSS?
