Folks on Reddit say there’s an offer to earn 70,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points with the Chase Ink Plus card when you complete the minimum spending requirements.  That’s worth at least $700 in statement credits.  Or $875 when you book a trip through the Chase Travel Portal.

You can also transfer them to airline and hotel partners like United Airlines, Southwest, and Hyatt!

The offer runs through May 15, 2016.  But it’s only available in-person at a Chase branch.

Chase is celebrating Small Business Week with extra incentives on their small business cards.

Through May 15, 2016, you can earn 70,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points when you sign-up for the Chase Ink Plus and spend $5,000 in the first 3 months.  The $95 annual fee is NOT waived.  This is the best offer I’ve seen on this card!

You can also earn 30,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points ($300) when you sign-up for the Chase Ink Cash and spend $3,000 in the first 3 months of account opening.  And there’s NO annual fee.  That’s the highest offer for this card, too!

Both of these cards earn 5 Chase Ultimate Rewards points per $1 spent on TV, internet, and phone bills.  And at office supply stores.

How to Get the Offers

Small Business Week runs from May 1 through 7, 2016.  But both of these offers are available right away!

To get them, you must apply in-branch with a Chase banker.  They are NOT available online.

You don’t need lots of revenue to get either card.  As long as you aim to make a profit with your small business, it’s worth putting in an application.  Here’s how you might already qualify.

Keep in mind Chase has been tightening its application rules.  If you’ve had more than 5 applications within the past 24 months from ANY bank, you may NOT be approved for either card.

That said, you can generally get 2 Chase cards within 30 days.

If you apply for either card, let me know about your experience!

  1. Do you know if they will match if you recently received the card?

  2. @Josh, some people had luck asking Chase to match the 70K offer to their Ink Plus card if they had recently opened it, others did not. It is worth contacting Chase to give it a try.

  3. @Josh – I agree with @NoonRadar, it’s certainly worth a try, especially if you’ve opened the card in the past 3 months!

  4. i already have 5 personal chase cards, would chase approve for the inkplus business card?

  5. @nramos02 – It depends on your credit profile. But lots of folks report having more than 5 Chase cards:

  6. If there are no Chase branches in your state, can you call a branch in a nearby state and apply over the phone with a branch employee?

  7. @John Doe My guess would be no, sine they have national (centralized) phone lines for over-the-phone bank and credit card applications. But I haven’t tried either, so you can give it a try. If they say no, call the regular over the phone credit card application and mention the 70K bonus, they will prob match you for it if you mention it before applying.

  8. Thanks @noonradar and Daraius! Will give it a shot.

  9. Anyone know how applying in-branch is affected by 5/24? Are you more likely to be approved if you apply in-person or is it the same thing (since underwriting is probably handled centrally and not in-branch)? Does a branch manager (or branch staff) have any influence over approvals?

  10. Two questions for the experts out there:
    1) I already submitted an application for this card a few weeks ago- I was called by someone from Chase asking all about my business (I have an LLC for an actual business), but have not been told if I have been accepted. Has anyone had luck going in to complete an application at a branch and getting the extra points?
    2) I applied for the Chase Sapphire card and was denied. The reason it supplied was, “Too many requests for credit or opened accounts with us.” I have an 800+ credit score, pay my credit cards off every month, have only signed up for two cards in the last two years (the Chase United business card and the Starwood Amex), and have a six figure income. I do have one other Chase card- the Chase Freedom, which I’ve had for 15 years, and I’m an authorized user on my mom’s Sapphire. Any tips for talking to them about reconsidering? I was pretty surprised that I wasn’t accepted.

  11. @Josh – No problem! Thanks for reading. Good luck if you decide to apply for either card! 🙂

    @Gerry – In my experience, it doesn’t help that much. The banker can make a call on your behalf, but that’s about it.

    @Tyson – I’d definitely call back and ask them to reconsider your applications. And be sure to follow-up about the Chase Ink card. Let us know how it turns out for you. My fingers are crossed!

  12. I stopped today and was told it doesn’t start until 5/1

  13. I cancelled this card last month, how long does Chase make you wait until you can get a card again?

  14. @Karen, to get the sign up bonus again you have to wait 24 months from the date when you got the last sign up bonus. Look at statements or ask Chase if you’re not sure when that was.

  15. @Andrew – Thank you for the info!

    @Karen P – Typically, it’s 24 months, as @NoonRadar noted.

  16. My mom went in yesterday to a branch and they said the best current offer was 6o,000 points and had no idea about the 70,000 offer.

  17. Went in to one branch, and they had to refer me to another branch where a person was authorized to complete business applications. I talked to her over the phone and let her know it was part of a Small Business Week special Chase had going. She found it and had it all ready when I got there.

    OH. And the $95 fee WAS waived for the first year. She even showed me the promo sheet that said that on it… That’s $700 net in rewards. Approved right away, will get my card in 5-7 business days. Thanks for the heads up! 🙂
