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.
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!
