Thanks to the many readers emailed to let me know of a 60,000 point Chase Ink Bold offer found by sun_aa in this FlyerTalk thread.

This is 10,000 points more than the regular offer for 50,000 points after spending $5,000 within 3 months.  I don’t know how long this will last, because yesterday’s link to the $300 Chase Freedom stopped working within a few hours.

The 60,000 point version doesn’t earn me a referral, and is better than the 50,000 point version which earns me a referral, and which I’ve written about in the past.

Emily just applied for the Chase Ink Bold in her last app-o-rama, so I sent Chase a secure message asking them to match her to the 60,000 offer.

Update:  Emily was denied the extra 10,000 points via secure message, but did get an extra 10,000 points after calling the number on the back of the card and asking to be matched to the 60,000 point offer.  I’m not sure if this will happen to everyone, but it doesn’t hurt to call and ask!

As always, I’ve updated the links in the Hot Deals tab as soon as I found out last night, so that they always list the best offers which I can find.

I also added a note (in bold red font) in my review of the Chase Ink Bold indicating that there is a better offer available.

60,000 Ultimate Rewards points can get you 1 return coach ticket to Europe or South America on United,  a 1-way business class ticket to Europe or South America using United miles, or lots of short flights on American Airlines (if you transfer the miles to British Airways).  Or close to 3 nights at a top rated Hyatt hotel (and of course much more at the lower level Hyatt and Marriott hotels).

Bottom Line:  If 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points for the Chase Ink Bold was good, 60,000 Ultimate Rewards points is even better!

Was denied for chase plus 4 1/2 months ago for too many inquiries (11 in a year) even tho great credit score , payment, steady income etc... I am so tempted to apply for this 60000 offer that will soon disappear, but should I listen to reason and wait 6+ months?

Million Mile Secrets

@BFD - It may not be around in a few months.

Success on the SM sent to Chase last night! This came after being denied over the phone (go figure). Oddly enough, I got success on the Ink Bold bump, but I was placed in the "your request has been submitted to our Marketing Dept" when requesting a bump from 60k to 60k+$50 statement credit on the United Explorer card. Go figure! (I'm still panning that the Explorer Card request will go through).

Million Mile Secrets

@Gabriel - You can always send them a reminder for the United card.

Thanks Daraius !

That's 110K (Ink Bold) UR bonus points in 6 months for me !

Got an "old" Ink Bold in October with 50K. Without cancelling, got a 2nd one (new one with 5x points on office supplies) in Feb with 50K offer. Just got this from Chase after reading your post and sending them a secure message...

Original Message Follows:


I just got a new Ink Bold card for my optometry practice

and I love the fact that I get 5X points with office

supply purchases, and I have a lot of those. It is the perk I

have been waiting for all along! I'm excited that it s a full

time perk and not just a rotating catagory, although I do

love my Freedom card, and I try to hit the catagories that are

giving 5X points on that.

After applying for the new Ink Bold, I saw an offer for

60,000 bonus points - I received 50,000 . I hit my head

like in the V 8 commercial, that I should have waited a

little longer to apply.

Is there any way I could get the upgraded bonus, as I just

recently got the card ?

In any event, thanks for adding the office supply bonus.

The Ink Bold card has replaced my Amex card on all of my

office supply store accounts ! "

Million Mile Secrets

@PatMike - This is perhaps one of the best secure messages which I've seen! Very nicely done. I loved the line "I hit my head like in the V 8 commercial, that I should have waited a little longer to apply."

@jrey- can you give us the name and number of the agent who responsed to the secure message and gave you the 10k bump? chase seems to be very inconsistent about this.

Thanks, Daraius. This is what I got today:

"Thank you for your recent inquiry regarding the 60,000

point enrollment bonus offer.

I am pleased to advise that I did add 10,000 points to the

account so that it receives a total of 60,000 points for

an enrollment bonus. You will see this adjustment on the

next statement. This adjustment is available for

redemption now.

If you have any further questions, please reply using the

Secure Message Center. "

Million Mile Secrets

@Kevin - Yes, you can combine Ultimate Rewards points across Chase accounts!

@Jrey - Glad it worked out and thanks for sharing.
