Here’s to Earning Extra Chase Ultimate Rewards Points With the Chase Ink Cash!

My favorite part of this deal is once you’ve registered your card, you don’t have to think about it again.  And sometimes you get surprise miles and points when you’ve eaten at a restaurant you didn’t even know was on their list!

This is also a great way to keep your miles and points from expiring!

2.   Sign-Up for Visa SavingsEdge

Link:   Visa SavingsEdge

Because the Chase Ink Plus and Chase Ink Cash are Visa business cards, you can register them with Visa SavingsEdge to get automatic discounts at certain retailers, restaurants, car rental companies, and hotels.

The discounts are generally small (usually 1% to 5%), but they’ll show up as a statement credit when you make a purchase at a participating retailer once you’ve registered your card.

Get Automatic Discounts When You Use Your Registered Visa Business Card at Certain Retailers With Visa SavingsEdge

For an even better deal, 1st shop through an online portal like Chase Ultimate Rewards, then use your registered Chase Ink Plus or Chase Ink Cash card to get Visa SavingsEdge discounts!

I always check evreward to find out which portals are offering the most cash back or points.

For example, I checked evreward to search for discounts at Super 8 Hotels.  Currently, you’ll get 2.5% cash back from Ebates when you book a Super 8 Hotel stay through their portal.

By paying with your Visa SavingsEdge registered card, you’d save a total of 7.5% on your Super 8 Hotel stay (5% from Visa SavingsEdge + 2.5% from Ebates).

And if you use your Chase Ink Plus card, you’ll earn 2 Chase Ultimate Rewards points per $1 you spend, because you’re booking directly with a hotel!

Note:   You can register any Visa business card with Visa SavingsEdge, not just the Chase Ink Cash and Chase Ink Plus.
