If you’ve considered applying for the Chase Ink cards 60,000 point sign-up offer, you’ll need to decide soon.
Chase has let us know this offer will definitely end on June 1, 2014.
I speculated that the deal might end at the end of the month, but now we know for sure! That’s because the banner ads for the Ink cards now show that the offer ends on June 1, 2014.
Why Should You Consider a Chase Ink Card?

Link: Chase Ink Plus
Emily and I both have the Chase Ink Plus and Chase Ink Bold. They’re some of our favorite cards!
The sign-up bonus on both cards increased to 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points – from 50,000 points – earlier this month. With these cards, you get:
- 60,000 points after you spend $5,000 in the 1st 3 months
- 5 points for every $1 you spend on cable, internet, and telecom
- 2 points for every $1 you spend on gas and hotels
- 1 points for every $1 you spend on everything else
- No foreign currency fees
- Points never expire and can be transferred to United Airlines, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Hyatt, Marriott, IHG, Ritz-Carlton, Korean Air, and Southwest.
- $95 annual fee, waived for the 1st year
The sign-up bonus for the Ink Bold once was $10,000 in the 1st 3 months, so the special offer for 60,000 points after spending $5,000 within the 1st 3 months is a good deal.
The 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points can also be used for at least $600 in cash back and $750 towards travel through the Chase Ultimate Rewards portal.
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.
If you’re still thinking about applying for these cards, I wouldn’t leave it until June 1, 2014. Sometimes banks take offers down early! But check the bank’s website if you can’t find the offer listed on the Hot Deals tab on Million Mile Secrets.
The 60,000 point Chase Ink sign-up offer will end on June 1, 2014.
This is a good deal because the offer is normally 50,000 points after meeting minimum spending. And you can do a lot of Big Travel with Small Money with 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points!
Emily and I already have these cards.
