Bypass Chase 5/24 Online With “Selected For You”/”Just For You” Offers [Check For Updated Offers]

Update 2/7/20: More people targeted.

Update 1/12/20: More people targeted, including offers for the 75,000 Southwest deal. Hat tip to reader Mac

Update 11/16/19: More people targeted. Hat tip to reader Leonardo M

Update 7/12/19: Worth checking for more targeted offers.

Update 5/20/19: Reader Jeff reports seeing a selected offer for you under the balance information section of one of their credit cards. Offer wasn’t showing in the regular just for you section, so worth double checking your accounts.

Update 4/22/19: Another round of offers has gone out, this time for 60,000 points on the Chase Sapphire Preferred with the annual fee waived.

Update 4/7/19: All offers should now have been loaded. Even if you checked on the 2nd I’d recommend doing another check.

Update 4/2/19: More offers have been loaded. As I understand more people will be targeted through tomorrow as well.

Update 3/18/19: Some people are seeing a 70,000 point offer on the Chase Sapphire Preferred. Annual fee is not waived, but this is still a fantastic deal.

Update 1/18/19: Lots of people are seeing offers for the Chase Sapphire Preferred currently. Worth looking to see if you have this offer. Keep in mind the 48 month Sapphire language still applies. Given the number of people targeted, I’m somewhat worried that maybe these aren’t bypassing 5/24 anymore. Please share your datapoints in the comments if you pull the trigger. Confirmed to still bypass 5/24.

Update: It’s working again, yay!

Update: No longer working unfortunately.

Update: It looks like United cards are now showing up under “Selected For You” offers. This is consistent with the fact that they also show up for in branch pre-approvals that also bypass 5/24. Hat tip to reader Wizmanison.

Today I read an interesting post on The Travel Sisters about seeing Chase offers ‘selected for you’. It seems that some people are seeing ‘selected for you’ offers in their account and these offers are bypassing the Chase 5/24 rule. To see if you have one of these offers. The offers are appearing in a banner on the left hand side of your screen, under your Ultimate Rewards balance on the Accounts page (this link might also work) (might also be under ‘explore products’).

Note, if you see a link that says ‘explore Chase credit cards’ and then displays all the cards and doesn’t say ‘selected for you’ with the green check mark then you don’t have any of these offers. It will also only show up if you see the new website design (and this won’t show if you have business cards).

These offers are different to the Chase pre-qualified offers (e.g it’s possible to have these selected for you offers and not pre-qualified offers). I’m wondering if these are the online equivalent to the Chase in branch pre-approvals? It seems only Chase branded cards will show up (e.g Chase Sapphire Reserve) and not co-branded cards (e.g Chase IHG).

Obviously this is relatively new, so if you find these offers in your account and apply please share your datapoints. Might also be interesting to know if you’ve been pre-approved in branch or not (or at least have/don’t have in branch offers).

Thanks again goes to The Travel Sisters for making me aware of this, their post has more pictures that might be useful to readers.

Data Points

  • Successfully bypassed: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
  • Declined due to 5/24 or other reasons: 1, 2

I think it might show up under your offers from Menu bar. Your Offers page have selected for you section. I have usual car payment offer shown there. I recently got CSR in branch so don’t think anything will show up there for next 6 months

i got a preapproved ink online but had just made a huge purchase hours before

this Chase offers ‘selected for you’ section has been around since the new website was launched.

this is where CPC invitations and other offers show up. i even have a CSP offer here of 50k when I already have one. IMO nothing to see here and assume this was just a pre-qualified (NOT preapproved) offer from Chase but glad the sisters got it. good for them.

i believe its YMMV although interesting hypothesis. i guess we just need more DP.

Data points: I don’t have a current UR account, and no ad is displayed at all in that section of my account. Two of my coworkers with UR accounts (both over 5/24) did not have a ‘selected for you’ ad there (one had a different ad, one had no ad).

Ryan

I’m still seeing the old Chase interface…. anyone know of a way to force it to the new UI?

NinjaX

is it cuz u only have the ink?

DS

My UR balance is on the right, so I’m not sure what is going on.

Mine Also. We have the old interface and cant acess the new one until Chase upgrades “all platforms.” A rep told me one of the reasons may be I have both personal and business cards on there but i guess YMMV

NinjaX
NinjaX

yes. that is the reason thats why. anyone who has INK has the old website. thats all.

PD

Yes, I have the Southwest business and old interface.

I saw the offer, Applied for CSP and application went pending, after few days it was rejected due to 5/24. so its not a bypass for 5/24

NinjaX
NinjaX

yup. YMMV. i dont think it bypasses anything, but i guess some do. who knows. not consistent enough.

Sa

Let me throw my theory here: their server did not decide on your application because of other data in your credit report or because of errors in the entries you made, and so it forced a human to look at it and he declined you.
If that is the case, bad news since Chase will plug the hole soon. Or worse ……

Ryan

That section, for me, shows no “selected” offer, though that is understandable as I have absolutely abused Chase prior to the 5/24 rule (my wife and I got two CSR cards EACH within 6 months and we went through about 8 Southwest cards over 18 months).

I’ve resigned myself to the fact that Hyatt, IGH, Ritz, etc. are going to have to be enough for me from now on.

I’m not leaving literally 1000s of dollars on the table so I can get the CSR.

gman

Hey,
How did you pull off multiple CSR’s? Cancelled and re-opened? Was it in-branch pre-approval?

turnip

I think he means “each within 6 months,” not “two CSR cards each.”

Dusty

I’m 99% sure he meant CSP’s.

Ryan
Ryan

This is correct. From 2014-15, my wife and barreled through literally dozens of Chase cards as quickly as we could.

I was sad when 5/24 got instituted, but Chase still has enough co-branded cards that I’m not too upset (e.g.- we can spend three nights per year in a Ritz, two nights per year in a Hyatt, 2-3 nights per year in IHG, two nights in a Fairmont suite and 50000 Avios PER YEAR between the two of us).

Leaving that all on the table for 100k UR or maybe 50k SW points seems insane to me.

What are you talking about

you’re the reason for 5/24. it is entirely your fault.

I see FU, Slate, CSP, CSR, United MileagePlus® Explorer, The Hyatt card. Already have CSP and just PC’d Slate to Freedom so not sure if these are really targeted. Also see 2 business cards, Ink Business Preferred and INKCash

ChurningForDays
ChurningForDays

Highly unlikely, although I’d love to be proven wrong. Chances are your looking at the main cards page, can you confirm whether or not the cards you listed specifically say ‘SELECTED FOR YOU’ with a green check mark?

Replying to my own post–clicking on Your Offers just takes me to the generic page to explore Chase Auto, Credit Cards, Mortgage. Therein lies the confusion as clicking on “explore credit cards” doesn’t mean anything special, instead, they should just say there are no CC offers.

My wife’s acct. shows the exact same cards. I don’t think these offers are legit if you’re over 5/24.

Jeff H

No in-branch preapprovals.
No offers currently in my account, but did have BT offer in the spot you refer to last summer.

Az F

I see everything – the CSP, CSR, Slate, the freedoms as well as the Southwest, Ritz, IHG, and Hyatt + the business cards. Total of 22 cards. Of note, I got the CSR, CSP, and Hyatt in the past year.

No offers selected for me and I have also been unsuccessful with my 1 attempt at in-branch pre-approval. Very interested to see how this develops.

Jonathan

I did not see the banner on either of my accounts. If I go into “your offers” I see a link to “explore chase credit cards”. This is definitly not targetted though and is just a listing of chase credit cards (both branded and co-branded).

Jonathan
Jonathan

You may want to clarify this point in your post, so that people dont start applying for cards in the “explore chase credit cards” section unnecessarily (and thus get hit with a hard pull because of the confusion).

PedroNY

I have no pre-qualified offers in branch, checked last week. I have all of these cards show up. I actually have Hyatt and Freedom Unlimited, so I am a little suspect of these being approved.

Chase Freedom UnlimitedSM credit card
Chase Slate® credit card
Chase Sapphire Preferred® credit card
NEW! Chase Sapphire Reserve
United MileagePlus® Explorer card
The Hyatt Credit Card
Ink Business PreferredSM credit card
Ink Cash® business credit card

I hope I am wrong! I’d love to hear from others.

Cheers,

PedroNY

Did you click “explore chase credit cards”? If so, those are not the same as “selected for you” offers.

PedroNY

Nevermind, it was the next box over, not the “selected for you” box.

Carry on,

I get these same ones when I clicked on explore offers and it’s saying “Your offers”. But I already have two of these. Afraid to bite, but sure is tempting. Will wait for more datapoints.

Anyone know how to get the new UI to load? I can’t figure out how to get away from the classic site… and I tried the links above – I have both personal and business, 7 total.

NinjaX

anyone who has the INK has the old website. thats all. so FYI.

Ahh thanks, I do have the INK.

Just a random DP (that I have been unable to reproduce), I did manage to get the new UI even though I have an Ink during an AwardWallet account update. I was running an Update All Accounts on my AwardWallet and something seemed to error out on Chase and I was left with the new UI with my Ink and CSP showing. Unfortunately, no offers available.

Nothing for my wife. I still have the old version of the website so not sure how to check for it or if it is even offered on the old style.

Here is what i see… im guessing this means no offers?

correct. no offers.

Slightly different, if Chase Private Client upgrade is shown with a green check mark on the click through page, does that mean I’m eligible to upgrade the account? Even if balance is not met?

NinjaX
NinjaX

no. you need the balance added later.

Yes green check means you can bypass 5/24. It’s not guaranteed but it worked for me.

I have the Freedom, Freedom Unlimited, and the CSP there but at this stage I don’t want to test the waters as the only card of the three I want badly is the CSP and I’m holding out for the improved in-branch offer (if I ever get in-branch pre-approval).

Adam

sucks that Chase’s IT is so horrible. still stuck on the old platform due to having biz cards along w personal. not even my CPC stuff shows up properly right now. doesnt make sense why chase would do this shit piecemeal. if you’re gonna roll it out, roll it out to all customers.

honestly, how many of the folks (I see some heavy hitters like PedroNY etc above) who can see the new site yet DONT have any biz cards or accts linked? I find it hard to believe, but maybe they’ve closed em out.

Tom
Tom

To be completely honest, the new site is a piece of $h!t and I was extremely relieved when I was “downgraded” back to the old version of the site after getting approved for a business card. Figures, now that I finally got the old/better version of the site back, now I’m finally regretting it. Seriously though, the new version of the site is so awful. It’s like Microsoft, where they try to design one UI that works on phones/tablets/laptops… might look nice on a tablet, but it kills the functionality and efficiency of using it on a laptop…

Adam

interesting take. obv I havent gotten a taste of the new site so I dunno how it would affect me day to day. but I’d give up (some) convenience in order to have access to real pre-approvals & a way to bypass 5/24 online – just to get approved for new chase cards – it’s been so long.

I am currently at 6/24 and applied for the CSR in Branch. I wasn’t Pre-approved but thought I give it a try: my application was declined right away due to 5/24.

The very next day, I did see the Ad you posted in the article above. However, it doesn’t seem to be in any way filtered: it offered me cards that I currently hold (Freedom and CSP). It seems to be just a link to the general Credit Cards Chase offers.

I didn’t actually apply because I just got rejected and at this time I have no reason to believe that the approvals are any different from (random?) post-5/24 approvals that happened all the time.

I saw this yesterday and it selected I was selected for all three cards. I went ahead and clicked through for the CSP and got the 7-10 day message.

Let me clarify, I had offers for slate, CSP, and freedom unlimited. I’ve had the Freedom for a few years now. I am below 5/24 too. I tried applying to CSP in March and was denied.

Sa

Can you think of why you are cont denied?

I have FU Slate Sapphire with green check mark and Ink preferred without green check mark. 7/24. I applied for Ink and got a msg they need more time to process my app. Will see what happens.
