Does the chase 5/24 rule apply to rental agreements too? I currently have a Discover it Secured card, Capital One Card, Amazon Store Card and I am an AU on Best Buy. I do have a Rental Agreement which I closed in April of this year (I paid it off). My question is, will this be included in the 5/24 rule?
Every account on a credit report include how it's coded, such as "revolving credit" or "installment loan" or whatever.
Chase counts new accounts that are coded as credit cards towards 5/24, not installment loans or other accounts.
Metro 2 codes most rental agreements as "code 29" which is a "rental agreement" and shouldn't count towards 5/24. Some leases are coded as "Open" installments, and those also shouldn't count towards 5/24.

Credit Karma doesn't say.... Where can i see what type of account it was?
The other commenters (ABCD, BBS) are assuming that you mean that the Acceptance Now account does appear on your EQ and TU reports, but that it's not showing the account type.
I'm not 100% certain that is what you mean by "Credit Karma doesn't say". You may mean that Karma doesn't say anything about that account -- meaning you don't see it on the Karma reports.
Can you clarify?
If an account doesn't appear on your reports, then it can't apply toward the Chase 5/24 rule.
OK. We expected that it was likely reporting as a loan. Loans don't count toward the Chase 5/24 rule. Here is an exhaustive resource for the Chase rule:
BTW, many people experience that Chase pulls their EX report, rather than EQ or TU.
So I suggest you see what your EX report says as well. You can get a free monthly Experian report and FICO 8 here:
