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.

I'm trying to help my girlfriend get her Companion Pass (for me to travel with her), but it isn't going very well. Here's what's happened:

1. She canceled her SW Premier Personal card on January 10th (had received the bonus well over 2 years ago).
2. She was auto-approved for the Plus by phone on January 25th.
3. She applied for the Business Premier a few days later and got a denial letter.
4. Around Feb 4th, she called recon, answered some questions about the business and was told they'd send it to someone to review again and she would either receive the card OR a denial letter in 7-10 business days.
5. It's been about 14 business days and she hasn't heard anything.

Any ideas on what to do next?
A. Call in to check on reconsideration status?
B. Try for the Premier Personal now (it's been well over a month since canceling the old one)?
C. Continue waiting for denial or the card itself? If ultimately denied, try for the Premier Personal - or wait a certain amount of time? How long?

But... We're running out of time to get the CP for travel this summer; considering a trip at the end of May! I'd appreciate your thoughts on what to do now. FYI, she has great-excellent credit, but she doesn't have a business. She has a business idea and plan, and she applied for the card based on that (to start tracking business expenses separately, etc.). Thanks!

I'm pretty much in the same boat other than never having any of the cards previously. Quick online approval for the Premier card followed by a denial letter for the Business Card. I spent about 20 mins on the phone with the recon group about 2 weeks ago and was told by the rep that she was recommending approval. I have been away for a week and was hoping to come back with the Business Card waiting for me as I have a couple of large purchases that I need to do soon. No card and no 2nd rejection letter. I will call them tomorrow am for an update.

Applied on 2/8 for the Premier (got the PLUS in early December). Got a pending message so called in right away, talked to recon and answered agent's questions. He told me he was recommending me for approval but because I had several other cards open (I have 5) it needed to go through a secondary approval which should only take a day or two.

Fast forward 3 weeks and I still haven't heard anything. The automated line just says I will hear in writing in 30 days.

Should I call again and offer to close one of my cards - or just wait it out? If I wait it out to the 30 days and find it's been denied, will they do another hard pull if I call again to have it reconsidered?

I called Chase again this am. Gave the rep my reference number and explained I was following up on initial recon call. She put me on hold and came back and told me that "she" had taken care of getting me approved and that I should see the card in 7-10 business days. I'm not sure what went on in the past couple of weeks, but just happy to get the card.

Also just finished calling and getting approved on a biz app applied for on 1/25. They finally pushed it through after an initial denial for too many recent apps.

So I checked my online account today and the new card showed up (23 days after initial application and recon phone call.) So I guess they are just really slow!

I am in the same situation (recommended for approval; 24-48 hours pending secondary approval). Hopefully it will go through. I am guessing that since a lot of people are applying to avoid the 5/24 co-branded rule in April, they are taking their time.

Can anyone PM me the recon line? Just wondering if I should call that, since the only # I have is the automated status line that tells me I'll hear by mail in 30 days from my 2/16 (or was it 2/18) application date?

Phone referral worked. Wife wasn't instantly approved--was told 7 to 10 business days for review. She checked her Chase Online account 3 days later and was approved.

Chase Southwest referral bonus limit

For those who have two SW RR cards (Plus & Premier) is the max amount of referral bonus points per year still capped at 50k or is it 50k per account (for a total of 100k)?

I applied for the Premier (50k) and Plus (40k) offers on the same day. Premier auto approved, Plus was pending. Called reconsideration line and was approved, although I had to transfer credit from my Hyatt.

Met minimum spend for both cards by the closing date. Plus card points and bonuses posted fine. Premier card was delayed a few days from the statement date, and only posted the points from the spend, but not the bonus. Should I give it another week to see if it'll post on Tuesday? Or SM Chase now?

Never had either card previously.

How long before your statement date did you reach the minimum spend? Usually this occurs when someone "hits" their minimum spend too close to the statement date and the bonus points get delayed until the next one.
