Please explain how the $600 cell phone protection perk works with Chase Ink Business Preferred card.
Great question, Joanne!
When you pay your monthly cell phone bill with the Ink Business Preferred, you’ll get automatic cell phone insurance.
It includes up to $600 of protection against damage or theft, 3 times per 12-month period, after you pay a $100 deductible. That’s up to $500 back toward a replacement!

Remember, you also earn 3X Chase Ultimate Rewards points paying your cell phone bill with this card!
I’ll explain why the cell phone insurance and bonus earning makes paying your cell phone bill with the Ink Business Preferred a good idea!

Should I forego all credit card applications until I have my numbers below the “5/24” requirement? It would take me 8 months, meaning lots of missed opportunity.
Chase has some of the best travel credit cards available. But they also have stricter application rules, that is, if you’ve applied for ~5+ cards from any bank (except these business cards) in the past 24 months, it’s unlikely you’ll be approved for most Chase cards.
But there’s a way to still apply for new cards without impacting the number of credit cards on your credit report.

Via Doctor of Credit, if you want the Wells Fargo Propel World AMEX card, you can only apply in-branch. And soon, it might be available by invitation only!
The Sign-Up Bonus on the AMEX Wells Fargo Propel Card Is Worth ~$400 to Use on Travel Anywhere in the World! But Now, You Must Apply for the Card In-Branch.
Here’s what these changes mean for you. And whether you might consider this card.
Last month, I wrote about a potential new Wells Fargo cash back card.
You can now sign-up for the new no annual fee Wells Fargo Cash Wise Visa. It earns 1.5% back on purchases. And 1.8% back on Android Pay and Apple Pay purchases made during the first 12 months after account opening.
But there’s NO sign-up bonus.
Emily and I don’t earn a commission on this card, but we’ll always tell you about new deals!

For most folks this is probably NOT the best cash back card. I’ll explain and give you alternatives!
