The sign-up bonuses on the Chase Ink Plus and the Chase Ink Bold cards have increased to 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points (up from 50,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points) after spending $5,000 within the 1st 3 months. And the $95 annual fee is waived for the 1st year.
There was a 60,000 point offer for the Chase Ink Bold and the Chase Ink Plus cards last June for Small Business Week, but it lasted for ~1 week. It was 1 of the most popular offers of last year!
The sign-up bonus for the Ink Bold once was $10,000 within 3 months, so the special offer for 60,000 points after spending $5,000 within the 1st 3 months is a good offer!
The Chase Ink cards used to be issued as MasterCards, but are now issued as Visa cards. Folks are reporting that the Visa cards are considered different products and it may be possible to get the Visa version of the Ink cards as well. The Visa versions get you additional discounts in the Visa Savings Edge program.
But When Will the Chase Ink 60,000 Point Offer End?
Readers have been asking when the 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points sign-up bonus offer on the Chase Ink Plus and the Chase Ink Bold cards will end. And the answer is no one really knows. It’s marketed as a limited time offer.
But we can make some educated guesses
However, last year’s 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points offer lasted ~ 1 week. Because this week, May 12, 2014, to May 16, 2014, is Small Business week, it could be that the 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points offer will end on May 16, 2014. And reader Brennan commented that he was told by Chase it would end this week. That said, I doubt that it will end within the next two days because there is no warning that the offer is ending soon.
But other folks have been reporting different end dates. Some readers like Adam have commented that the 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points offer will last until the end of the month (May 31, 2014). While folks on Flyertalk have received targeted offers that end on June 16, 2014.
That said, I’ve heard unofficially that the offer will end on May 31, 2014…
You can get 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after completing the minimum spending on the Chase Ink Bold and Chase Ink Plus card.
But it’s a limited time offer. And no one really knows when the offer will end. The 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points sign-up offer might end on May 16, 2014, May 31, 2014, or June 16, 2014. But I’d guess it ends on May 31, 2014.
If you were going to apply for the cards, the extra 10,000 points on the Chase Ink Bold and Chase Ink Plus cards could make it worth applying before this offer ends.
