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 just used the link: https://applynow.chase.com/FlexAppWe...VP9&PROMO=DF01 for the Plus card and was approved. (see post 4094 & 4248)
I called to verify what the actual offer was for just to be sure.
I was told it is $2,000 spend 50,000 points.

Help please ;-)
What number did you call to verify? How do you reference this particular application to the CSR?

Thanks!

So if I get the Personal Plus Card (50K) and the Business Card (60K), that alone would get to the 110K required for the (good, two year version) Companion Pass (after minimum spend), right?

Yes.

Just to clairify... rest of this year once you actually get it and all of 2020. Slightly less than two years, but great deal!

Thanks!
After my application was approved there was a splash screen with a phone number and "application" number. I called and referenced the application number.

So I applied 2 SW personal and business CC from Chase back to back. Both did not get instant approval. In the end, business was approved and personal card was declined. I'm pretty sure I have applied less than 5 cards in the last 24 months. I called for reconsider the personal but it's been over 30days so they said they have no record and I need to reapply.

Should I apply for the personal card at a local Chase branch or online? I there anything I should check before applying for the personal cc this time to increase my chances of getting approved? Thanks

So there is a new limited Chase promo to get Companion Pass just by applying 1 card

https://creditcards.chase.com/travel-credit-cards/southwest-plus?CELL=6TKV&F42G=Y538C4

Edit: uhmm, looks like this promo is only for 1 year in 2019 companion pass. I already have 60k points, should I apply for this or another card that gives me 50k points for 2 years companion pass? Thanks

Has anyone applied for this care to share the rules and experience? Thanks

If you have 60k points from THIS YEAR, then yes, get the other card (business) and go for the pass for all of 2019 and 2020. If those 60k are from last year, then they will not apply.

Has anyone else done this? Sure have..this thread if full of discussions. Scroll back.

Yes my 60k is from THIS YEAR. I got 60k from a business card applied in end Nov last year, a 50k personal card was rejected. Can I apply another business card again or should I apply for personal card? Would 30 days wait time between application be enough? Thanks

I don't know. Never heard of anyone doing that. Can you overcome the reason the personal was denied or worth applying again.

I will apply for the personal which was unapproved last time again. How long do I need to wait between application? It's been more than 30 days, would it be safe to apply again? Thanks
