Chase Special Consideration [Now for business cards only]

Update 8/23/2016: Chase has eliminated the Special Consideration Form for Personal Card Exceptions. The following post has been updated accordingly.

If you apply a Chase credit card and are denied, you may have luck calling their reconsideration line for help (details here).  You may even have luck calling multiple times until you find someone willing to help.  And, if that doesn’t work, you may have luck asking to have your case escalated to Chase’s Resolution Department.

If none of the above works, there is another option for business card applications.  If you have $10,000 or more on deposit at Chase, your Chase banker can submit a special reconsideration form on your behalf:

Special Consideration Form for Business Card Exceptions

Chase Special Consideration

Most of the details that have to be filled out are the same details that were on the application (e.g. your SSN, income, etc.).  Some info is new such as your “Other Chase relationships”, “potential relationship with Chase $”, etc.  Most importantly, I think, is an open field for your banker to fill in “Other information (reason why an application decline should be overturned, additional information, current card spend, etc.)”.Chase Special Consideration

It’s a good idea to develop a relationship with your Chase banker so that they’ll be willing to go to bat for you with one of these forms.  And, hopefully, your banker will be good at filling out those key fields.  You do need to sign the form in person, so this option is only useful for those with a Chase branch nearby.

5/24 Rule?

Reports have been mixed as to whether or not this helps with overcoming Chase’s 5/24 rule (where they deny applications from those who have opened 5 or more accounts in the past 24 months).  Some have reported success, but not all.

Do you seriously consider a mortgage to be a deposit account?

A mortgage is the opposite of having money.

if your mortgage is 10k you need 20k in deposit.

No success in overturning 5/24 – “too many credit cards opened in the last two years”

Where do you find the forms? Are they just at the bank or can you download them online and take them into the bank? Thanks for the info!

It doesn’t help with 5/24…tried this exact thing with my personal banker for Chase Sapphire Preferred and it failed. Was worth a shot I guess, and outcome may (highly doubt it) be different if you have a substantial relationship, but at that point you’d probably just go Private Client.

Wondering if being a Chase employee helps the cause. Do their employees also fall under the 5/24 limit?

It doesn’t help with 5/24 rule. I am a private client, that is, having more than $200k with chase. My private client banker tried his best to help, but no luck.
