Update: This 100,000-point offer will be sent on a limited, targeted basis as a test.
If this is true, this will be the best sign-up bonus EVER for this card!
Ink Business Preferred May Get an Improved Sign-Up Bonus!
The Chase Ink Business Preferred currently comes with a sign-up bonus of 80,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after spending $5,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening.
But there’s a rumor that Chase may increase the bonus to 100,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points within the next 5 months! That’s good news for folks who aren’t restricted by the Chase “5/24 rule”.
The card also comes with:
- 3X Chase Ultimate Rewards points for every $1 you spend on travel, shipping purchases, internet, cable and phone services, advertising purchases made with social media sites, and search engines
- 1X Chase Ultimate Rewards points on all other purchases
- Up to $600 in cell phone insurance when you pay your cell phone bill with the card
- Primary auto rental insurance (CDW) when renting for business purposes, plus purchase and extended warranty protection
The card has a $95 annual fee, but it’s waived the first year if you apply in-branch.
If you’re considering the Ink Business Preferred, it might be a good idea to wait and see if this rumor is true. And if you’ve recently (within ~90 days) received the card with the 80,000 point bonus, it could be worth calling Chase or sending them a secure message to see if they’ll match you to the better offer.

Earlier today we told you about ANOTHER 100,000-point offer, this time from American Express.
Chase MAY be increasing the sign-up bonus of the Ink Business Preferred from 80,000 points to 100,000 points. If this turns out to be true, folks who have recently applied for the card can try secure messaging Chase to ask them to match the new bonus.
Cross your fingers that this is more than a rumor!
