70,000 Point Chase Ink Plus In Branch Offer Extended

The usual sign-up bonus on the Chase Ink Plus card is 60,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after spending $5,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of opening your account.

With the in-branch offer, you get 70,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after meeting the same minimum spending requirements!

The annual fee on either offer is $95, NOT waived the first year.

But the annual fee is worth it, because by transferring Chase Ultimate Rewards points to airline and hotel partners, you can get Big Travel with Small Money!

How to Get the Offer

You must apply in-branch with a Chase banker.  You can NOT get this deal online.

For folks who don’t have a nearby Chase branch or prefer online applications, the 60,000 point offer is still a great deal.  But of course get the higher bonus if you can!

Remember, you don’t need millions in business revenue to get the card.  Having a for-profit venture such as selling items, blogging, or taking photos could qualify you as a small business!

As long as you aim to make a profit with your small business, it’s worth putting in an application.  Because this is a great deal!

Just remember, Chase has been tightening its application rules.  So if you’ve opened more than ~5 credit cards within the past 24 months from ANY bank, it’s likely you will NOT be approved for the card.

    Thanks for the update – I’d really like to grab this but am worried I’ll get caught by the 5/24 rule. Do you have any knowledge of whether business card applications count toward the 5? So I’m NOT asking whether the 5/24 rule applies to business cards b/c I know that’s been much discussed – rather I’m asking if business applications count toward my personal 5/24. Meaning if I applied for 3 personal cards and 2 business cards in the last 24 months, am I out of luck or in good shape? I always read that business cards initially ding your personal credit but then sit on the business’ credit or something to that effect? Thanks in advance for any advice!!

  2. @oldmanpeabody I signed up for the Chase Ink Plus card earlier this month and I have WELL over 5 new accounts open within the past two years. I applied online and confirmed that I am eligible for the 70k points. Just have to call in once the spend is met and they will honor the promotion. I did NOT call in to push through my application when it went into pending status. The next day I called the 800 number and got confirmation that I was approved. I THEN called and asked that they rush the card to me.

    I would say as long as you haven’t broken Chase’s rule of too many CHASE applications within a given time period (I think it’s more than one within 30 days is problematic), you should be OK. If you have other Chase business credit card accounts open, this may open you up to more scrutiny, but that all depends on how much credit Chase is willing to offer you/your business and how much of that credit you’ve already exhausted with other accounts with them.

    @anthony Very helpful, thanks! And you did the online and then PM’d to get the 70k confirmation, is that right? Any strategic benefit to that over going into the branch? Or just no branch nearby? Thanks again

  4. @oldmanpeabody Yes, I applied online, but I actually called in after I was approved and asked specifically about being matched the bonus. The promotion was running until a certain date and I wouldn’t have gotten my card (hence no way to send SM online without activating) until AFTER the promotion ended. I wanted to make sure I got my foot in before the offer expired. The rep told me that the date of my approval ultimately made me eligible for the promotion, even if I didn’t meet the spend until 80 days after the promotion ended. Obviously a moot point now.

    Strategic benefit? Nope. Just convenience. I assume there would be more questions to answer in the branch regarding my business which is really just on the side consulting and I don’t do it as a true business venture. Didn’t want to have to deal with “expected revenue in 2016/17” questions.

  5. Wondering if anyone knows if an in branch associate would be able to move credit from one chase card to another? I’ve got lots of chase cards and I’d assume they wouldn’t approve me for another unless I move some credit around. I’ve done this before over the phone, but don’t know if in branch associates can do this. Anyone have a clue? Thanks!

  6. Branch Manager in North Richland Hills, Texas did not know of any offer for in branch applications. Only the online offers, He recommended applying online.

  7. I wanted to confirm that this deal is still active because I live in California and called around the local chase bank, and all the associates kept telling me 60,000 points. However, when i applied, the paper said 70,000 with no annual Fee for the first year!! Awesome deal. Hopefully they accept my credit application. First off, wanted to say that i follow your blog everyday! Great tips and info.

  8. Still active. Just applied today in NYC, got the 70k offer and 1st year waived. August 15th.

  9. I went into a branch. I had my tax ID, my social security number, my 2 Chase personal accounts, and asked to apply for the business card. The employee told me I can not apply for a business card with only a federal tax ID, and that I have to have my “sole proprietorship” registered with the state. All I am doing is selling trinkets on ebay. Is it true there is no way to apply for a business card, if the business has only a tax ID and is not incorporated or registered as a DBA? It seems to me that other people have gotten the card with only the tax ID papers. Twitter @hartforth
