A few readers have asked me if different partners or managers can get the 50,000 point sign-up bonus for the Chase Ink Bold for the same business using the same business tax ID number.

I don’t know what Chase’s official policy is, but Emily and I were both able to get the 50,000 point sign-up bonus for the Chase Ink Bold using the same Million Mile Secrets Tax ID number.

Over the past few months we both applied for and were approved for the Chase Ink Bold and the 50,000 point bonus posted to our accounts!

Of course, we also had to enter our social security numbers, since most small business cards require an individual to guarantee the credit extended to a business.

I like the Chase Ink Bold because of the great airline (United, British Airways & Korean Air) and hotel partners (Hyatt, Marriott, Priority Club, Ritz-Carlton) and because there are no foreign exchange fees for using the card outside the US.  And 5X points on office store purchases can be quite useful too!

  1. That’s great, but can I get two Ink Bold cards for myself using two different business tax id’s?

  2. Tom: I’ve heard from people who have more than 1 Ink bold for themselves. Yes, they used different business tax ids. YMMV.

  3. I can vouch for the fact that you can get 2 Inks with the same business tax ID number. My wife and I both applied last December using the same TID# for our LLC and were both approved without problems.

  4. I have one old version of Ink Bold and one new version of Ink Bold both in my name as sole prop and my SSN. I anticipated closing my Ink Old when I applied for the new version but I wasn’t necessary.

  5. the question is if i have INK BOLD BUSINESS CARD, Can I apply and have the INK CASH and the other INK card?

    I believe there are 3 separate Chase INK cards.

  6. My dad has 3 separate businesses and received 3 ink bolds and got the bonus, plus extra, for screwing around to deliver them.

  7. For the Ink Bold, how do I get to spend $10K within 3 Months? I do have a tax ID.

  8. Can you use the same United Mileage Plus account number so the points for Ink Bold post to your existing frequent flyer program?

  9. @ Jason,

    Look at the link under “Credit Card Resources” at the top, then select How to Meet Minimum Spending. D has a lot of good tips in there.

  10. Does that mean if I have only 1 business with tax ID, I can still have 2 ink bold under my name : one under my own SSN for sole prop and one for my business

  11. @Brent Smith,
    I don’t think so, but in any case you don’t want to. Transferring from Chase Ultimate Rewards to United is an easy, quick 1 to1 operation. Most people store up their UR points until they know where they are going to use them and then transfer, but if you want to store them in UA miles just transfer them over a couple days after they show up each month.

  12. Hi I have a question! I just started a Day Trading business and wanted to know if we would qualify for the Chase Ink Bold Charge Card. We haven’t started generating revenue yet, but we have a lot of capital and so generating profits in the future won’t be too difficult.

    Please let me know!

    • @rob – You should be able to get each separate version of the Chase Ink cards, including the upcoming card.

      @Brent Smith – You can’t do that, but you can transfer the points from the Chase Ink Bold to your United account very easily.

      @Paula – I believe you can.

      @LC – I can’t comment on your specifics, but in my experience I’ve been able to get approved with low revenue after explaining to the reconsideration department.
