Update: Chase has clarified with me that:
- The 3 month extension applies to accounts that were actually approved in January, February, or March.
- The extension does not currently apply to card offers that had a 2 tier offer (such as Southwest and United). The extension applies to the first tier only, but Chase is looking into adding the extension to the 2nd tier as well.
- Chase is looking into adding this offer for April applications. However you can always call Chase to request an extension on your account.
Chase has confirmed to me that everyone who applied for any Chase consumer or business card in January, February, or March will have an additional 3 months to meet their spend threshold.
The extension is automatic, so there is no need to call or message Chase to request it. Chase is going to start informing customers of the extension starting tomorrow.
That’s not quite as generous as the December-May window provided by AMEX, but is a generous gesture nonetheless!
Did you apply for a Chase card in Q1? Will this help you meet the spending threshold?
