The highest sign-up bonus ever for the Chase Ink Plus business card is now available online!  You’ll get 70,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after you spend $5,000 in the 1st 3 months.  But this offer is only available for a limited time.

Note: The Chase Ink Plus 70,000 point bonus offer ends on October 19, 2014.

In the past, Chase has offered 70,000 points for this card, but only through targeted offers or if you applied in a branch.  Now, anyone can apply online!

And if you already have the Chase Ink Plus, you may be able to refer someone and get a 10,000 point bonus!

If you missed out on the 60,000 point increased sign-up bonus earlier this year, you’ve got a 2nd chance to earn even more points!  70,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points will get you at least ~$875 in travel (or more if you transfer points to airline and hotel partners).

Where Will YOU Go With 70,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards Points?

And even if you’ve had the Chase Ink Plus in the past (when it was a MasterCard), some folks report being able to get the sign-up bonus again.  That’s because it’s now a Visa card and is considered a different card product.

Why This Is a Great Deal

The sign-up bonus on the Chase Ink Plus is normally 50,000 points after meeting minimum spending requirements, with the annual fee of $95 waived for the 1st year.

With this offer, you’re getting 70,000 points!  But the $95 annual fee is not waived.  Still, I’d happily pay $95 for an extra 20,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points (worth at least ~$250 in travel).  And worth much more if you transfer those points to airline and hotel partners.

Here’s what you get with the Chase Ink Plus:

You’ll also get extra perks and benefits, including airport Lounge Club membership and VisaSavingEdge discounts at stores such as Staples.

Even if you don’t think you have a business, you can still apply.  Many folks qualify for business cards even though they don’t realize it!  If you sell items on eBay, provide childcare for others, have a blog, or are just starting your business, you might be eligible for this card!

Chase Ultimate Rewards points are worth 1.25 cents each when redeemed for travel on the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal.  So 70,000 points is worth $875 in travel when used this way.

But in my experience, you get the most value out of Chase Ultimate Rewards points when you transfer them to airline, hotel, and rail partners, like Hyatt, United Airlines, or Southwest.

Creative Ways to Spend $5,000 in 3 Months to Get the Bonus

The easiest way to put the $5,000 on your Chase Ink Plus is if you have a big purchase coming up.  But what if that’s not the case?

You could:

  • Pay some bills in advance (if you can lay out the money) such as phone, cable, internet, insurance, etc.
  • Load $1,000 per month onto your AMEX Serve card and use your Serve card to pay bills, send money, or withdraw cash.
  • Go to an office supply store and purchase gift cards you’ll definitely use.  You could buy gift cards to Amazon.com, chain restaurants, department stores, and more.  These can be for yourself or for upcoming holiday shopping.
  • Consider ChargeSmart to pay bills such as your mortgage, auto loans, and student loans.  There is a fee to use your credit card but it could be worth it to get the 70,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points!

  1. Just applied. The application was shown as pending. I called the consideration line 1-800-453-9719, spent 10 minutes with a customer service rep. and got approved for a $5,000 line!

  2. if people just get some exercise and walk to the bank, its on every desks in the bank, so I dont know whats the big deal is. it has been in the branch for almost 3 months and nobody seem to care.

  3. How long will this be available?

  4. I applied for this perhaps 2 months ago and was required to sign up for a business checking account to even submit an application. I was denied because my business was too new. Do I have to wait a certain amount of time before applying again?

  5. @Joseph No you do not have to wait a certain amount of time. I got approved with a brand new business earlier in the year, so you could definitely try again. The Chase business reconsideration line was very easy and helpful for me. The referral links say you can only get credit for 5 referrals for this particular offer, and since I know Daraius will get way more than 5, if you wanted to apply with my link I’d greatly appreciate it: https://applynow.chase.com/FlexAppWeb/renderApp.do?PID=CFFD2&SPID=FBGY&CELL=6LDJ&MSC=1511816529

  6. i signed up for the ink plus in april
    is it possible to apply again for the bonus and have 2 ink plus cards?

  7. Really want to take advantage of this sign up offer, but I’m worried that I’ll have too many annual fee credit cards. I currently have: Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase SW Business Plus, and the Chase SW Personal Premiere. I opened the CSP about 2 years ago and the two SW cards this year to get the SW Companion Pass.

    How easy would it be to cancel some of these credit cards? Which would you suggest canceling? Of course, I also wouldn’t want to be blacklisted from Chase offers in the future… Thanks!

  8. FYI I was just approved four weeks ago under the 50k bonus offer. I sent a message on the secure message account requesting to be changed to the 70k offer. Since the 70k offer does not waive the annual fee for the first year (my 50k offer did) so they were unable to change the terms (Dodd-Frank prohibits credit card fees increasing in the first 12 months of an account) but they gave me 10k extra points just for asking. 60k and waived annual fee is pretty awesome!

  9. I currently have a chase ink bold (opened ~4 months ago) and have had a chase ink plus (back when it was mastercard). Does anyone know if I would still qualify for this offer?

  10. Considering the Ink card? The referral links say you can only get credit for 5 referrals for this particular offer, and since we can easily imagine that Daraius will get way more than 5, please consider applying with this link: https://www.chasereferafriend.com/ReferFriend.aspx?d628b557bf4c4ea09a41491af904d37e Just enter your name and email, confirm the not-a-bot code at bottom right, and the offer will come to you. Thanks, I greatly appreciate the referral!

  11. @George I’d drop the SW biz card and tell them you like the flexibility of the Ultimate Rewards points for your business spending. This offer is too good to pass up. Since you can only get 5 referral credits for this get and Daraius is going to get way more than that, I’d be very grateful if you use my link: https://applynow.chase.com/FlexAppWeb/renderApp.do?PID=CFFD2&SPID=FBGY&CELL=6LDJ&MSC=1511816529

  12. @Justin I asked Daraius for a referral but notice your referral link. Decide to use your since you ask b4 Steve.

    Does addt’l user get any extra reward for business card?

  13. @TD thanks a lot! I really appreciate it. Did you get approved? And unfortunately there is no extra bonus for adding authorized users/employees on this card.

  14. Is it possible to get instant approval without EIN?

  15. Just used your link to apply! Thanks for answering all of my questions throughout the years. You’re terrific!

  16. Hopefully this last a few months.

  17. ahhh I reallllly want to do this deal, but Chase has already made me shift around credit limits on my other 4 chase cards to be able to get a new credit card last month, and I need to try to save room for the Southwest CC for a Companion Pass for 2015-16…. but 70,000 points is so tantalizing!!! What should I do!?

  18. @Daraius – I already have the Ink Plus, though coincidentally it was time to get the Ink Bold today so I did. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to use your link as I was unable to find it. I looked and looked. Hopefully this new card will show up in the Visa version since I already had the MC Bold.

  19. @Michael – I’m in the same predicament with the Ink Bold. I already had the MC version but I was just approved for a new one which is supposed to be the Visa version. We’ll see if it is in a few days. Reports say we’ll get the bonus so I went for it. I plan on secure messaging about the spending requirement and the bonus before I spend. What’s your experience @Daraius?

  20. If I transfer these points to Southwest after the start of next year will they count toward qualification for the companion pass?

  21. I have a Chase Ink business card, I wonder if that is a different product than Ink Plus.

  22. I applied and was just approved for this offer on Monday! I do not yet have the Chase Ink Bold and was planning on getting that one next, but I just heard a rumor that it will be discontinued soon. Can anyone confirm that? And if that’s the case, is it worth it for me to apply for that one right now so close to my other recent application with the Chase Ink Plus?

    • @choi – I’ve posted and linked to the branch offer previously. But Chase has branches in ~25 states, so an online offer is attractive.

      @John – Not sure, but the referral offer suggests an end date of October 10, 2014.

      @ Joseph – I don’t know of a specific timeframe, but you could consider it again.

      @john smith – Folks report having different cards for different businesses.

      @ George – I’d consider one of the SW cards, since you don’t need a business and personal version.

      @ Doug – Congrats!

      @ Michael – You could since the current Ink Plus is a Visa and not a MasterCard.

      @ Katie – Thanks for reading and for using our link!

      @Captian Hooks – I wouldn’t count on it.

      @matthewD – No worries! Folks report being approved for the Visa version even if they previously had the MC version.

      @Rebecca – Points transferred directly don’t count for the Companion Pass, but do count if you transfer them via Hyatt and Marriott.

      @Kelly – I’ve heard the same rumor and expect it to be discontinued. But I wouldn’t apply for it so close together unless you’re fine with taking the change!

  23. I applied in a branch about 3 weeks ago and was turned down. I called the reconsideration line and was grilled by a rep asking me where my income was going to come from after I sold the things I had at home? Denied again…. Fico score hit 31 points!

  24. @larry, Don’t worry it is only a temp drop. It will go backup in 2-3 months.

  25. Just applied using your referral link. I don’t have the biz registered yet so thinking about starting one as per your tips Daraius. Revenue field is not accepting “0” zero so I just put “1” $. Here’s the message I received:

    Thank you for applying. Your application requires further review before making a decision.

    Not so sure if I get approved….

  26. Hi, I want to apply for both personal card and business card. It seems suggest apply for personal card first in another article. But this 70,000 miles offer is going to end I’m a week. Should I just go ahead and apply got this business card first? I don’t have any utility bill with company name on it in the residential address that I am going to put in application. I do have a real company that’s in business for several years.

  27. I assume you can ‘double dip’ the 5x points earned when shopping at Office Supply stores like Stales or Office Depot via an airline shopping portal, getting miles for that online transaction as well? does anyone know if gift cards bought online count towards earning miles for eligible $$ spend as well?

  28. Does this link mean you won’t be able to redeem the full amount of points (75k after meeting minimum spend) as a statement credit or cash back deposited into an an account ? This page says you can only redeem 20,000 points.

    https://creditcards.chase.com/ink-business-credit-cards/compare-cards?CELL=6LPQ&jp_ltg=card_topnav

  29. I’ve added an authorized user/ employee to my account. Will their expenses on the card count towards the spending requirement?

  30. I applied a few weeks ago under the 70k link and just recently received the new card in the mail. But the material that came w/ the card doesn’t say anything about the 70k bonus. Is that typical / how can I be sure that I’ll get it if I spend $5k in 3 months?
