    Hey all. First post here. I've been lurking for awhile but now finally have a question. So I just started getting into all of this in the last month or so. So here's my question.

    I know there's a common conception that Chase has a 6 month policy when it comes to getting cards from them. A couple months back I signed up for the Chase Priority Club Visa with the 80k signup bonus. Shortly after that I learned about the 100k Avios points offer and just figured I'd wait 6 months, cancel my couple year old (no rewards) chase card and sign up for the Avios offer. Then I saw that the Avios offer was going to be canned on the 7th. So I did some more reading and found that apparently their 6 month rule is a bit of a misconception. So I bit the bullet and apped just so I wouldn't miss the offer (then of course it was extended).

    So of course I got the "we need to review your application" message and was told to stay tuned and that I'd either get a denial letter or a card. Fast forward to this morning, I get an email from British Airlines thanking me for joining the Avios program. I assume this means that the card was approved and they auto-enrolled me Avios? Is that assessment correct?

    And that's my first question!

    Call Chase & ask? =) but from the email asking you to enroll most likely you got the card.

    But yeah 6M rule is a myth I believe; from my own reading of things around the interwebs it seems 90days is a good buffer between cards; but even then if you can justify it and your history/credit w/Chase is good it doesnt seem to matter. I got the SW Rapid Rewards & Chase Sapphire 12 days apart. Then 2 weeks later applied/approved for the Ink card. I don't wanna push my luck and I myself will be waiting ~90 days before I apply for my next one. Either the United or the Hyatt. Don't know yet.

    Look online in your Chase account to see if the card has been added there. Or call the automated status update number: 800-945-2006, wait for the prompt and then press "#", the "1", then enter your SSN. (No, I didn't just direct you to my SSN harvesting number... I got the # from here and used it myself a few times)

    And welcome to MP!

    Or you can also call 888–609–7805 to talk to a human for app status. Good luck! I am currently awaiting status on my two chase apps (BA & PC) from a couple of days ago. I will likely have to call consideration next week and barter as this would make my 6th & 7th card with them.
