You’ll earn 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after you spend $5,000 on purchases in the 1st 3 months of opening your account.  And you’ll get:

  • 5 points for every $1 you spend at office supply stores and cellular phone, landline, internet and cable TV (to a maximum of $50,000 in combined purchases per account anniversary year)
  • 2 points for every $1 you spend at gas stations and on rooms booked directly with hotels
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Chase Ultimate Rewards points (that never expire) and can be transferred to partner airlines and hotels or used for cash back

The annual fee of $95 is NOT waived for the 1st year.  But it’s worth paying $95 for 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points!  I’ll explain!

Insider Tips for Applying for This Business Card

The Chase Ink Plus is a business card.  But 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 online, teach lessons or provide childcare for others, have a blog, or have just started your business, you could be eligible.

You can apply as a sole proprietor using your Social Security Number.  You’re NOT required to have a business EIN (Employer Identification Number) to qualify for the card.

However, it can be tricky to apply for a Chase personal and business card on the same day.  Business cards are harder to get, so I’d apply for the personal card 1st, then the Chase Ink Plus.

Note:   If it’s been more than 24 months since you last received the sign-up bonus on the Chase Ink Plus card, you can get the bonus again.

And you’ll get additional discounts through the Visa Savings Edge program.

What Can You Do With 60,000 Points?

I love Chase Ultimate Rewards points because they’re easy to use and you can get LOTS of Big Travel with Small Money!  Emily and I have used our Chase Ultimate Rewards points for trips to Paris, Maui, Kauai, Switzerland, Italy, and many more.

Ciao, Bella! We Traveled to Italy Using Chase Ultimate Rewards Points

Chase Ultimate Rewards points are worth 1.25 cents each when redeemed for travel on the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal.  So with 60,000 points, you could get $750 in travel!

It’s very easy to book flights this way because there are no blackout dates.

But in my experience, you’ll usually get more value from Chase Ultimate Rewards points when you transfer them to airline, hotel, and rail partners, like Hyatt, United Airlines, or Southwest.

For example, 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points could get you:

That’s an amazing deal from just 1 credit card sign-up bonus!

And the Chase Ink Plus is of 1 of the 3 cards (Chase Sapphire Preferred and Chase Ink Bold are the others) that allow you to combine all your Chase Ultimate Rewards points together to transfer to partner airlines and hotels.  Even points earned from the Chase Freedom and Chase Ink Cash!

Chase Adds New Transfer Partner More Options To Europe

By Having the Chase Ink Plus, You Can Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards Points From Your Chase Freedom and Chase Ink Cash Cards to Travel Partners

That makes the points you earn with the Chase Freedom and Chase Ink Cash card more valuable!

Is It Worth Paying the $95 Annual Fee?

The regular offer on this card is 50,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after meeting minimum spending requirements, with the $95 annual fee waived for the 1st year.  With the 60,000 point increased bonus, the annual fee is NOT waived.

But I’d happily pay $95 for an additional 10,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points.  That’s because 10,000 points is worth at least $125 (at 1.25 cents per point) when redeemed for travel, and potentially more when transferred to airline and hotel partners!

For example, you could get a night at the Hyatt Place Tampa/Busch Gardens for 8,000 Hyatt points per night (transferred from Chase Ultimate Rewards).  A paid stay could cost $159 plus taxes (~$178).

Or you could transfer 9,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points to British Airways and have enough British Airways Avios points for a short-haul, round-trip coach ticket on American Airlines or Alaska Airlines.  Sometimes these tickets are worth $300 or more!

That said, some folks report the annual fee IS waived for the 1st year when you apply for the card in person at a Chase branch.

Bottom Line

For a limited time, the sign-up bonus on the Chase Ink Plus card has increased to 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after you spend $5,000 on purchases in the 1st 3 months of opening your account.

The points are worth $600 for cash back, $750 in travel through the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal, or even more when you transfer them to airline, hotel, and rail partners for flights and luxury hotel rooms.

  1. oh..no 🙂
    From now on, all the blogs will be focusing on only one thing : how can you make best use of 65K UR points with boat load of referral links. I’m okay with referral links, but same thing repeated for a month on all major blogs….Ugghhhh !!!

  2. Dang! Just this week I got my 50K points on this card. You win some, you lose some I guess.

  3. I have a question. I currently have an active Chase Ink Plus card — can I apply for another business card that’s for a diffferent business? Will I still get the 60K bonus? Thanks for all your help!

  4. This is not a good deal. Chase has always in the past done the 60k bonus with no annual fee the first year. I think they are testing the waters to see if they can still get people to sign up with the annual fee not waived. We all need to hold off and wait for them to give us back the 60k offer with annual fee WAIVED. 10k points for 95$ is basically a trade-off. So you might as well just wait.

  5. Looks like chase is on a roll, when are they going to offer increased signup on the csp ?

  6. @Karen P. Call Chase and ask them if they can retroactively credit you with the extra miles. I did that last year with Citi AAdvantage when they changed the bonus a month after I got my card. The customer service folks knew exactly what to do, had a memo of authorization already at their desk for that sort of call, and credited my account without any hassle at all.

  7. @Karen, send Chase a SM and see if they’ll match the increased offer. They are usually really good about matching if it’s with 90 days of you opening the card.

  8. I applied for the Ink Bold in 12/13 under my actual business, though I used my ssn. Would they let me apply for this Ink Plus offer under the same business?

  9. I currently have an Chase Ink Plus bussiness card as a sole proprietorship . I converted my Sole Proprietorship to a Corporation. Can I apply for same ink plus business card as a corporation ?

  10. I currently have an Chase Ink Plus bussiness card as a sole proprietorship . I converted my Sole Proprietorship to a Corporation. To get the points, Can I apply for same ink plus business card as a corporation ?

  11. Applied and said needed further review, called and got it approved. This would be my first ink card, but i have had the southwest cards 4 times already! Recently just closed my southwest business card.

  12. I got the further review for the application as well. What’s the number to call?

  13. My Ink card is expiring in June. I got 60K points for it. My cc only says Ink on it as well as my statements only say Ink business on it. Does this mean that this is not a Ink Plus card? If so, I would l am closing my account in June and applying for the Ink Plus. Thanks.

  14. 1. heard in branch the 1st yr fee is waived.
    2. i have CSP which i’m looking to cancel. Should I can that 1st, then apply for Ink? How long to wait after canceling to apply?

    THx

  15. Longest rehash of someone else’s blog post evar!

  16. Hello – I have an Ink Bold and Ink Cash (2 cards) for my business… I would like to apply for the Ink Plus to get the 60K miles bonus… any ideas how to negotiate in the reconsideration call? Would they allow me to have 3 business cards for my business? Has anyone done this prior?
    Would they for example, ask me to close my Ink Bold first?
    Thanks in advance for any pointers!
    Alex

  17. Are you positive that you can only get the bonus every 24 mths – I’ve heard via Dans Deals, that specific rule does not apply to business cards? Can anyone confirm this?
    The reason why I ask is because I got the Ink Plus bonus back in 11/2013 and was looking to reapply again for this one. I also recently got the Ink BOLD bonus back in 5/2014 and am going to be cancelling it very shortly, in order to avoid the AF. Any help would be appreciated!

  18. I applied for this card and after talking on the phone I was denied. They were very friendly and said its because my business did not have enough revenue at this time and that I had opened 3 new accounts with Chase since February.

    Do you recommend applying again in three months? I really could use this card and have a great credit score and history with Chase. Thanks for your help!
