Huazzah! I Just got two Chase Cards despite having 20 new accounts in the last 24 months. Turns out there are 5 exempt Chase cards: RC, BA, Hyatt, Amazon, and IHG. I applied for Hyatt for my wife to capture the 2 free nights to book at the Park Hyatt Paris or NYC both valued at $700+ a night. Her application went to review, but was approved confirmed by its appearance on her chase account website the next day. When I applied to IHG, same thing, but it never showed on the site. I had to call 888-270-2127 (personal credit analyst, 7am-10pm EST M-F; 8am-10pm EST Sat. and 9am-9pm Sun.). Just be ready to answer with the last 4 of an existing card and its credit limit for verification. I called and all they just wanted was to shift some credit around. IHG got approved that very second! I was also able to match to the 100k offer for $2k spend, just in time for summer wedding season which will be half that spend alone. Here is therei reply to the secure message online:
