1. 60,000 Points Chase Ink Bold & Chase Ink Plus Ends Monday
Update: This offer has ended.
The 60,000 point sign-up bonus on the Chase Ink Plus® and the Chase Ink Bold® and the 25,000 point sign-up bonus on the Chase Ink Cash® and Chase Ink Classic ends very soon.
You have to spend $5,000 within 3 months on the Ink Plus and Ink Bold and $3,000 on the Ink Cash & Ink Classic to get the sign-up bonus.
I don’t know the exact time when the offers will end, so apply by tomorrow (Saturday) if you’re interested in the offer. See this post on how to evaluate limited time credit card offers to see if it makes sense to apply for the cards sooner or later. Banks are offering limited time offers and increasing and decreasing sign-up bonuses because they don’t want to be predictable.
An extra 10,000 points on the Chase Ink Bold and Chase Ink Plus are worth ~$100 to $167+ depending on how you value Chase Ultimate Rewards points. And 65,000 Ultimate Rewards points are worth at least $650 to $1,085. Here’s a post on what to do with 65,000 Ultimate Rewards points.
You don’t need to be incorporated to apply for a business credit card. You can also apply for a business credit card as a sole proprietor and even as a start-up business with little to no revenue.
But don’t lie on the application form!
2. 55,000 Miles Delta Platinum
Rapid Travel Chai links to a 55,000 mile Delta Business Platinum card (offer expired). You get 25,000 bonus miles (5,000 are also elite qualifying miles) after your 1st purchase and 30,000 miles (15,000 miles are also elite qualifying miles) after spending $5,000 within 3 months.
As always, I updated the Airlines credit card tab with this offer, which is the best offer I’ve seen on the Delta Business Platinum card.
The $150 annual fee is not waived with this card, but you will get 20,000 elite miles and 55,000 regular Delta miles which you can redeem for a Delta flight. Delta’s Silver elite status requires only 25,000 miles, so you’d only have to earn 5,000 more elite miles to get Delta silver status.
The terms say that you can’t get the sign-up bonus again if you have ANY Delta business card open within the last 12 months.
3. 50,000 Miles Citi American Airlines
dhammer53 emailed me yesterday with a new link for the 50,000 mile American Airlines Visa card after spending $3,000 within 3 months. Citi has been cleaning up the 50,000 mile offers quite aggressively, so I’m not sure how long this will last.
This is better than my affiliate link which offers only 40,000 miles for the MasterCard version.
4. 40,000 Miles Barclaycard Frontier Airlines
Million Mile Secrets reader Samuel links to a 40,000 mile Frontier Airlines card after spending $500 within 3 months. This is better than the regular offer fro 35,000 after spending $750 within 3 months.
Unlike other banks, Barclaycard sometimes will let you submit an application for a credit card but will later tell you that the offer had expired. Keep that in mind if you don’t hear back from Barclaycard ~2 weeks after you applied.
