If you’ve already booked tickets for winter travel, check back to see if the fares have dropped for your trip.  You can always cancel and rebook at the lower price, and won’t pay a change fee.

What Can You Get With the Ink Plus Card’s 70,000 Point Bonus?

Update:  The Chase Ink Plus 70,000 point offer is no longer available, but check Hot Deals for the latest offers!

The increased sign-up bonus on the Chase Ink Plus business card is now available to everyone online!  You’ll get 70,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after you spend $5,000 in the 1st 3 months.

Note: The Chase Ink Plus 70,000 point bonus offer ends on October 19, 2014.

Folks are excited about what they can get with all those points!  When used for merchandise, gift cards, or cash back, 70,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points is worth $700 (1 cent per point).  If redeemed for travel through the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal, they’re worth $875 (1.25 cents per point).

But in my experience, the best way to get the most out of Chase Ultimate Rewards points is to transfer them to airline, hotel, and rail partners.  You can get thousands of dollars worth of travel by transferring them to partners like Hyatt, United Airlines, or Southwest!
