I went ahead and decided to create a separate thread merely as curiosity to see what other folks have experienced regarding some recent Chase Amazon Visa approvals bypassing 5/24.
Although, it is way too premature to consider whether the 5/24 restriction has been somewhat relaxed (or removed altogether) for this particular card, but a recent number of approvals and discussions appear to indicate that some profiles have been able to circumvent the 5/24 restriction. These appear to be cold applications vs the pre-qualification available through the Amazon site. Thus far, DPs have shown the pre-qualification can still bypass 5/24.
This thread is merely a compilation of DPs to determine whether this is something temporary (perhaps a glitch) since we know Chase has had this happen in the past with green/black star offers. Or, perhaps something that could change in the future.
This particular topic isn't about conspiracy theories or rumors about the fate of the Chase Amazon Visa CC portfolio (which is still unknown + there's a separate thread for that discussion), but rather compiling DPs around scenarios that may be indicative that the 5/24 restriction can be overcome in the absence of a pre-qualification offer via the Amazon website.
The thread below was introduced earlier this year about pre-qualification offers via Amazon:
The thread below highlights some issues with the above tool:
The thread(s) below are recent approvals which bypassed 5/24 (no pre-qualification):
For any DPs where declined applications are still citing 5/24 as a reason, please post them here as well (such as the one(s) below):
While my DPs do not directly involve an approval over 5/24, they might have some merit to this thread. In September, I tried the prequalification tool at 5/24, and was not prequalified. I tried it again in October at 4/24, and was prequalified. I followed through with the app and was instantly approved. In my case, it looked like 5/24 may have been a factor in the prequalification process.
glad I was able to give some info at least. I suspect they are more lenient with 5/24 to 7/24 than for lol/24.
Awesome thread, @FinStar!
It was about time for Chase to shake things up, but I admit I never saw this one coming!
i think if you are slightly over 5/24 you will be approved but if you are way over 5/24 you won't. it seems to be that way based on dp
@FinStar If official - 5/24 decline.
And they did a DOUBLE PULL
Eqx this morning attached to this letter
Read alot of DP's recently on other sites and certainly appears 5/24 doesn't apply to Amazon and SW.and possibly united card? Tons of approvals I have seen on amazon cards well over 5/24. Be interesting to grab our DP's from this site as well.
im currently 6/24 and i did the prequalify link and it said unable to approve me at this time. I didnt want to cold app and burn 2 inquiries. I wanted the 200 amazon gift card sub to pay for my airpods 3 and then close after 2 years and move the limit to my cff.
