Update:   This offer is no longer available, but check the Hot Deals for the latest offers!

Update:   The Chase Ink Bold and Chase Ink Plus cards are no longer available for new sign-ups.

You only have 1 week left to apply for the Chase Ink Bold and Chase Ink Plus 60,000 point sign-up offers, and the Chase Ink Cash 30,000 point offer.

Chase has let us know this offer will definitely end on June 1, 2014.  So if you’re considering these cards, this is a good time to apply.  That’s because the regular offer is for fewer bonus points with a higher minimum spending requirement.

The Chase Ink Plus and Chase Ink Bold are some of my favorite cards.

At the beginning of the month, the sign-up bonus on both cards increased to 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points.  Usually, the sign-up bonus is only 50,000 points.  With these cards, you get:

You Could Travel to Key West With 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards Points

At 1 point, the spending requirement for the Ink Bold was $10,000 in the 1st 3 months, so this offer for 60,000 points after spending $5,000 within the 1st 3 months is a good deal.

If you don’t want to transfer to airlines and hotels, the 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points can also be used for at least $600 in gift cards and $750 towards travel through the Chase Ultimate Rewards portal.

I like the extra perks and benefits, including Lounge Club membership and Jot for expense management.

The Chase Ink cards used to be issued as MasterCards, but are now issued as Visa cards.  Readers have reported 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.

There’s also the Chase Ink Cash card, which has a 30,000 point sign-up bonus (usually it’s 20,000 points).  This is 1 of the largest sign-up bonuses which I’ve seen for the Chase Ink Cash card.  You get:

  • 30,000 points after you spend $3,000 in the 1st 3 months
  • 5 points (5% cash back) for every $1 you spend on cable, internet, and telecom
  • 2 points (2% cash back) for every $1 you spend at gas stations and restaurants
  • 1 point (1% cash back) for every $1 you spend on everything else
  • No annual fee

You can NOT transfer points from the Ink Cash directly to airline or hotel partners.  But you can transfer the Chase Ultimate Rewards points to the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Ink Bold or the Chase Ink Plus card and from there to airline or hotel partners such as Hyatt or United Airlines.

If you’re still considering these cards, don’t leave it until the last day.  Sometimes banks take offers down early!

Bottom Line

The increased Chase Ink sign-up offers will end on June 1, 2014.

This is a good deal because the offers are normally lower (50,000 for the Ink Bold and Ink Plus, 20,000 for the Ink Cash) after meeting minimum spending.  And you can do a lot of Big Travel with Small Money with Chase Ultimate Rewards points!

  1. I had asked in the original post of they would match the 60k offer, after I had unfortunately just gotten the ink card a week before the new offer started. Sent a message through secure messaging to chase, and they immediately matched it once I met the minimum spending. Yay!

  2. If you transfer the points to Southwest do they count towards the companion pass?

  3. If I have had the ink bold before can i get the 60k this time? The card was cancelled. Also can i get the chase plus and qualify if I have had the bold? Thanks!!

  4. I applied yesterday for the Ink Plus through your link. I received a pending email, I was wondering if that was because of the weekend? I have no prior relationship with Chase and my EX report is frozen.

  5. Hi Darius,

    Can I get the bonus points for applying Sapphire Preferred but I already have a Sapphire card with no annual fee?

    Thanks,
    Tsui

    • @Michael – Congrats and thanks for sharing!

      @ Kari – Not directly, but only if you transfer via Hyatt or Marriott and from there to Southwest. But you lose half your points that way.

      @ Simon – The Bold and Plus are different versions so you can have both versions. The new Ink cards are Visa cards which are considered different from the older MasterCards.

      @ Adrian – Thanks for using our link. It could be because your EX report was frozen. You could call them to process the app…

      @ tsui – I believe you can!

  6. Hi Darius,

    Can I triple dip on earning cash back from sites like eBates, TopCashBack and additional miles from MileagePlus Shopping network and bonus point/miles categories by using Chase Freedom or Chase Ink Plus or Bold? If so, any tips I should know about? Thanks!!

  7. What the the recon phone number? I unfroze my report to allow the app to process. I’m wondering if by calling I can help influence the decision.

  8. I applied for the Chase Ink Plus card, but did not get approved immediately. If Chase approves my application after June 1, do I still get the 60000 points promotion?
