It seems that in my post-ER-shift delirium, I forgot, while writing this article, to write about HOW to apply for SCRA benefits for Chase cards. My thinking at the time was probably that you’d read the article about how to get them for the Amex cards. Anyways – How do you get your fees waived on Chase cards?
That is easy – either call the number on the back of your credit card, be it personal or business, or (since I omitted it the first go-around, I’ll make it easy), call 1-877-469-0110. Or, finally, you can send a secure email through the website – the email tab is located in the upper right hand side of the webpage. Just tell them that you’re in the military and wanted to qualify for benefits under the SCRA.
It takes about a month to hear back from the credit card companies regarding your benefits, both from Amex and from Chase, but the nice thing is they will credit your accounts for any past fees since the SCRA was passed, which is really cool. I’m not quite sure how they verify that you’re in the military (both phone reps did not know), but I have a friend in the reserves that was able to get this benefit, so I’d try it no matter whether you’re active duty or not.
If you have any other questions, please reply in the comment section.
