Frequently Asked Questions about Rapid Rewards Visa

1. What are the different card types?
non-business Plus, non-business Premier, business Plus, and business Premier.
Premier cards have a higher annual fee but give 6000 anniversary bonus points vs. 3000 points for the Plus cards. It is generally agreed that you will get the bonus for a new account if you have not had that particular type of RR Visa card before, but Chase appears to be in the process of changing their policies (see below).

Note that prior to RR-2.0, the two types of RR Visa cards were "Classic" ($29 to $39 annual fee) and "Signature" ($59 to $69 annual fee). Plus and Premier are new products for purposes of the (soon to be retired?) "One bonus per product" rule.

2. Is there a zero annual fee version?
No.

3. Can I "churn" these cards? How often can I reapply for the same type card and get the signup bonus?
The official rule has recently changed more than once. Closely check the T&C of your offer as different rules may apply to concurrently available offers. The Inflight offer linked above states:
This bonus offer is available to you as long as you have not received a new cardmember bonus for this product in the past twenty four months.
Referral offers have been seen with a limit of one individual and one business bonus per lifetime (although T&C read by the CSR taking the application differed from those printed on the referral offer).

Actual results sometimes differ from the official rule. People have reported receiving the bonus a second time on the same card type at various intervals even when the bonus was officially once per lifefime per product. Please post your results here.

As of mid-May 2015 Chase has cracked down on applicants who appear to have much less than average attachment to their cards. Specifically, more than 5 applications within the past 24 months is the approximate cutoff: Chase crackdown on churners: Please report your RR Visa approvals/denials here

4. Can I cancel the card and still collect the anniversary bonus?
Yes. Reasonable people disagree on whether this crosses the line of exploiting the card issuer. The anniversary bonus is described a reward for having been a cardmember for the past year, not as a reward for paying the next year's annual fee. Based on that description, the bonus has been earned even if you then cancel the card. As a practical matter, there is a window of only a couple weeks to accomplish this. The bonus points will post on the billing date of the statement containing your new annual fee, which will have posted earlier in the billing cycle. You have 30 days from posting of the annual fee to cancel the card and have the new fee refunded.

5. Does the annual fee count toward the spending threshold for the signup bonus?
No.

6. When will my signup bonus post to my Rapid Rewards account?
If you have met the spending threshold at least several days before your statement date, the bonus will normally post 2 days after your statement date, not when you actually spent the money! Cutting the timing or the spending amount too closely is not advisable. Mistakes can happen.

7. My statement shows sufficient purchases to meet the spending threshold. Why didn't I receive the bonus?
This can happen if you met the spending threshold just a few days before the statement date. It appears that accounts are flagged for meeting the spending threshold independently of the statement generation process and less frequently than daily.

8. How can I determine my statement date?
You should call Chase (phone number on back of card) to check your next statement date. Credit card companies are now required to have payments due on the same numerical day of each month, which means closing dates vary throughout the year. (Before reforms enacted after the financial crisis, RR Visa cards had constant closing dates rather than constant due dates.) The closing date should remain within the same small range unless you request a change of your payment due date. When you request a change, Chase normally can delay your next statement but cannot accelerate it. If you are unwisely taking the risk of cutting your timing too close, you should call Chase more than once to confirm your next statement date.

9. I accidentally crossed the spending threshold in December rather than January. Can I return a large purchase to bring my spending back below the threshold?
Unlikely. It appears that the sweep to check spending threshold does not un-flag an account previously flagged as meeting the threshold. It's not even clear whether the sweep counts returns at all. If you realize the error before the statement closes and you have a payment due date change available, you might be able to push the December closing date into January.

10. Can I apply for a credit card in my wife's name but my Rapid Rewards number, so that the points funnel into my account?
People have tried this. Some have succeeded. Others have reported that Chase closed the account and posted no Rapid Rewards points. Do you feel lucky? Programs can become very aggressive when they suspect members of defrauding the program by using non-matching names. When you game the system you are only on solid ground if you follow the rules to the letter. Breaking the rules means that the program can penalize you if they want to, and believe me: They want to.

11. Can I scam this system in any other way? I just had a clever idea.
There is nothing new under the sun here on FlyerTalk. If it relates to established program rules and it isn't discussed here you can be confident your idea will not work.

Thanks for your advice, I went to open a Credit Sesame account, and I can't find where to find number of inquiries. It says I have 0 credit monitoring alerts.

I just got UMP and currently have Csp and freedom. I don't think both chase offers are an option.
I also got the email. I've been casually monitoring the SW card for about a year, and this is the first $100 statement credit I've seen.

I've been trying to take it easy lately, but the App-O-Rama temptation is strong.

Was about to apply for this card yesterday! Good thing my day got too busy.


So my question is.... why don't they just waive the first year annual fee rather than give a $100 refund?

Weird.

Can you post more about this offer? I just got approved and would love a $100 statement credit bump up!

My mom got a Premier card using my referral link. She received it today and my statement closes in 10 days, so there will be at most 10 days between first use and my statement closing. Will it be enough time for my 5K referral bonus to be posted at stmt closing? Reason I ask is I would like to close my card soon and need the referral bonus posted before then.

Agh! I can't believe I left out the word "not". I am getting too old for this stuff.

I will edit my original post. The fee is not waived the first year. I do hope everyone read the Pricing and Terms page of the offer.

Very sorry about that.

Always carefully read everything on an offer I or any blogger mentions before accepting it. We all try to be careful in our descriptions, but sometimes we screw up.

So, I have a Premier card I've had for many years (my oldest credit card) that I don't want to cancel. I'd like to work for a companion pass for next year, which means getting a card now and working to get the spending limit met in the first week of January, so it posts in January.

That probably means the Southwest Premier Business 50k right now.

I'm having a hard time finding a link to get a Premier Business 50k deal though. The only thing I see is @pgary's post, which doesn't say 50k anywhere in it.

Does anyone have a working link or can they confirm?

800-278-4370 is the magic number to apply for a SW Business Premier 50K offer. I have called to confirm this offer and submitted my application over the phone. You can also use the link provided a few posts back, but the page has no offer details specified. I'd be reasonably confident that the online link is valid though. The poster is legit!

I was able to call into the 800 line and I directly asked the phone operator about what promotions they had for sign ups. The operator read a "script" regarding the 50k offer. I went ahead and applied. I am not sure regarding the "online application".

This did the trick! 50k Premier Business card on the way. Let me know if you hear of anything on the Plus in the next few months I'm running for a companion pass in 2015.

Thanks so much!

Hello all, may i ask someones opinion on the following.

To get the companion pass in 2015, would this be the best way of doing so?

1) Apply for the premier now
2) Meet minimum spend in January
3) Apply for the plus (When it becomes available) and meet spend + point minimum


Thanks!
