You can get 70,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points from the Chase Ink Plus card when you spend $5,000 in the 1st 3 months.

The Chase Ink Plus is 1 of my favorite business cards because you get:

  • 5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points per $1 you spend at office supply stores, and on cable, internet, and wireless purchases
  • 2X Chase Ultimate Rewards points per $1 you spend at gas stations and hotels (booked directly with the hotel)
  • NO foreign transaction fees (great for using outside the US)

Getting 2 Chase Ink Plus Cards

If you have 2 different businesses, Chase may allow you to sign-up for another Chase Ink business card for your other business.  Some folks on Flyertalk (as have I) have gotten 2 Chase Ink Plus cards for separate businesses.

However, a reader wrote in that he was denied the bonus on 2 separate businesses for the Chase Southwest cards because he had received the bonus in the past 24 months.  The terms for the Ink card say:

Previous cardmembers of this business credit card who received a new cardmember bonus for this business credit card within the last 24 months.

So if you didn’t get the bonus on the Ink card within the last 24 months, you should be able to get it again.  If you did get the bonus for a different business, it is unclear if you will get the bonus again.  You used to get it historically, but I don’t have any recent experience.

The previous version of Chase Ink cards were MasterCards, but the current versions are Visa cards.  Folks report being able to get the bonus again if they previously had a MasterCard, but applied for a Visa version.

To help increase your chance of approval, you should:

The 70,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points on the Chase Ink Plus is a great sign-up bonus.  But be careful that you don’t get your Chase cards shut down.

  1. Is there a rule of thumb about the maximum frequency you can apply for Chase cards? Does Chase consider business and personal applications to be connected?

    I recently signed up for Explorer and intend to apply for the Hyatt in the next few months. Would an application for the Ink business card impact those applications?

  2. How do I find the travelisfree chase ink referral link for the 70k ink sign up offer? I can find your link all over your website in literally every single post but can’t seem to find one for him anywhere on his site. Thanks in advance.

  3. What’s the chance of applying under SSN if there’s already one under an EIN? I had an ink bold under SSN (closed 2 mos ago) and an existing ink plus under an EIN from last year.

  4. I did a app-o-Roma on Aug 12th, got approved for 2 chase personal cards, but denied for a marriott business card. I also already have a ink bold mc version for 2 years, and closed a ink plus mc on Sept 12th. Would the chance for approving the ink plus this time be low for me?

  5. Regarding statement : “So if you didn’t get the bonus on the Ink card within the last 24 months, you should be able to get it again.”
    Do you know if it is 24 months from application approval or cancellation?
    THANKS as always!!!

  6. I was actually denied the Ink card on Friday. The rep asked me a few questions regarding my address, business revenue for past, this & next year; profit in the past, projected this and next year. I didn’t know there was a revenue requirement. The rep stated the min amount of credit given is $5k on the card and your business needs to sustain that. If a person has a small side business, it is quite reasonable for one not to reach over $5k in revenue per year. Any suggestions or thoughts for a reconsideration phone call? Thanks.

  7. I just wanted to say thanks once again for your blog. Thanks to your perfectly thought-through posts on multiple business cards and reconsideration conversations, I had the confidence to boldly apply for my second Ink Card (70k!!) and was perfectly prepared for the Reconsideration discussion. The rep said I would have to have it officially signed off by his Manager tomorrow but that he was recommending me for approval (despite my business being a start-up with no prior revenues).

    All this x2 since I was able to convince my parents to apply for a card as well. Really appreciate you and these blogs that flesh out the burning “what ifs” and how to best go about pursuing them. Thanks so much!!

  8. From my recent experience there are no revenue requirements etc – I have now twice been approved for a business card and none of the companies, Amex and Chase, have asked for any info on my “business” which is right now just a thought and not up and running

    Just another method for getting credit out the door

  9. I’ve had success with this offer still being live! No need to use the link below, but I’d greatly appreciate it!
