Can You Upgrade a Chase Card to Ink Business Preferred?

The new Chase Ink Business Preferred card has fantastic perks like 3X points for travel purchases and up to $600 of cell phone protection insurance.

Because of Chase’s tougher application rules, most folks who have opened more than 5 cards in the past 24 months will likely not be approved for the Ink Business Preferred.

Instead, you can consider a product change.  This way, you’ll get the ongoing perks of the card.  But you will NOT earn 80,000 point sign-up bonus.

Depending on your spending habits, it might make sense to change to Chase Ink Business Preferred.  I’ll explain!
