Update: The Chase Ink Plus 70,000 point offer is no longer be available, but check Hot Deals for the latest offers!
Did you know that by registering your Chase Ink Plus card with the Visa SavingsEdge program, you can save an up to 5% at certain hotels?
You can currently get 70,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points with the Chase Ink Plus when you spend $5,000 within 3 months. This is the best offer we have EVER seen for this card!
Note: The Chase Ink Plus 70,000 point bonus offer ends on October 19, 2014.
You’ll also earn 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points at office supply stores, internet, and phone, along with 2X points when booking directly with hotels.
Another reason I like the Chase Ink Plus card is because it qualifies for the Visa SavingsEdge program, saves you money!

Where Can You Save?
Visa SavingsEdge gives discounts in the following categories:
2. Business Services
Note: Each store has their own savings policy. For instance, at Staples you get 1% back when spending at least $200. But at Texaco and Chevron there is no minimum purchase required. So read the terms carefully!
3. Dining & Entertainment
How to Sweeten the Deal!
Combining Chase Ultimate Rewards points you earn with the Chase Ink Plus with cash back you get through the Visa SavingsEdge program is great! But you can make this deal even better by using shopping portals and coupons!
Here’s how the discounts can add up!
Finally, you can search sites like RetailMeNot for more discounts and coupons at Staples. With a quick search, I found a coupon for $15 off $150.
When shopping at Staples.com for
Visa gift cards, toilet paper, soap, snacks, etc., you could use a $15 off coupon found on RetailMeNot.
AND get 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points because you used your Chase Ink card at an office supply store.
AND get 1% credited back to you because your Chase Ink card is enrolled in Visa SavingsEdge.
AND get 2X Chase Ultimate Rewards points because you clicked through the Chase Ultimate Rewards portal to get to Staples.com!
All those “ands” add up to more savings!
When you book a stay at Ramada hotels through their website, you will earn 2X Chase Ultimate Rewards points with the Chase Ink Plus card. And if you’ve registered for Visa SavingsEdge you will get 5% cash back.
You can also earn 3% cash back with Mr. Rebates.
If you redeem you Chase Ultimate Rewards points for cash back, you will save a total of 10% (2% with Chase Ink Plus + 5% with Visa SavingsEdge + 3% with Mr. Rebates) on your stay at Ramada.
You already earn 5X points at office supply stores and 2X points booking directly with hotels with Chase Ink Plus. And Visa SavingsEdge will save you an additional 5% at select hotels and 1% at Staples.
You can boost your savings even more with shopping portals, coupons, and store discounts!
