Update:   This offer is no longer available, but check the Hot Deals for the latest offers!

Update:   The Chase Ink Bold card is no longer available for new sign-ups.

The sign-up bonus on the Chase Ink Plus and the Chase Ink Bold has increased to 60,000 Ultimate Rewards points – from 50,000 points – after spending $5,000 within the first 3 months.  The $95 annual fee is waived for the 1st year.

There was a 60,000 point offer for the Chase Ink Plus and the Chase Ink Bold in June last year, but it lasted for about a week.  And the sign-up bonus at one point for the Ink Bold was $10,000 within 3 months, so the special offer for 60,000 points after spending $5,000 within the first 3 months is a good offer!

The Chase Ink cards used to be issued as MasterCards, but are now issued as Visa cards.  Folks are reporting that the Visa cards are considered different products and it may be possible to get the Visa version of the Ink cards as well.  The Visa versions get you additional discounts in the Visa Savings Edge program.

Why I Like the Ink Plus and Ink Bold

Emily and I both have the Chase Ink Plus and the Chase Ink Bold and they are among our favorite cards!

The Chase Ink Plus & Ink Bold are among my favorite cards because:

  • You earn 5X points for cable/internet/telecom purchases and for purchases from office supply stores
  • You earn 2X points for gas & hotel purchases
  • There are NO foreign transaction fees
  • Points never expire and can be transferred to United Airlines, Virgin Atlantic, British Airways, Hyatt, Marriott, Priority Club, Ritz Carlton, Korean Air, Southwest, and Amtrak
  • The main difference between both cards is the Chase Ink Plus is a credit card while the Chase Ink Bold® is a charge card.  This means that you have to pay the balance on your Chase Ink Bold in full (which you should be doing in any case!), but can roll over the balance on the Chase Ink Plus (not recommended because of the high interest fees).

We’ve used Ultimate Rewards points to have lots of Big Travel with Small Money.  We’ve been to Paris, Maui, Kauai, Switzerland, Italy and many other places thanks to Ultimate Rewards points!

Chase Ink Business Cash Credit Card

The sign-up bonus on the Chase Ink Cash has increased to 30,000 Ultimate Rewards points – from 20,000 points – after spending $3,000 within the first 3 months.  This is one of the largest sign-up bonuses which I’ve seen for the Chase Ink Cash card.  You get 30,000 Ultimate Rewards points which you can redeem for cash back (which is why the offer says $300 below) or transfer to airlines or hotels if you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred®Chase Ink Bold or the Chase Ink Plus.

The Chase Ink Cash has NO annual fee, but you get 5X Ultimate Rewards points or 5% cash back at office supply stores and for cable/internet/telecom only for $25,000 in annual spending per year at Office Supply stores.

The Ink Cash offers 2x points for spending at gas stations and restaurants.

You can’t transfer points from the Ink Cash directly to airline or hotel partners.  But you can transfer the Ultimate Rewards points to the Chase Sapphire Preferred®Chase Ink Bold or the Chase Ink Plus card and from there to airline or hotel partners such as Hyatt or United.

Bottom Line

If you were going to apply for the cards, the extra 10,000 points on the Chase Ink Bold, Chase Ink Plus and Chase Ink Cash could make it worth applying before this offer ends.

Are you going to apply for the Ink cards with the higher sign-up bonus?

After a year, if i dont want the membership fee with the ink bold, what should i do? I was going to transfer the line of credit but was told that I would not be able to transfer the line of credit since it is a business card. If I cancel it will it hurt my credit score? Ideas?

Hi, does anyone know if sub/employee accounts are part of the 5k spend to get the bonus of if all spend has to go on the master account?

@Pete – Spending on additional cards will also count towards the minimum spending requirements.

Hi MMS.

Do you have any knowledge of bank employees churning business credit cards? Does the bank even know about which credit cards their employees have?

@Tiffany Heidenthal – Congrats! All spending by the authorized user will earn points which go to YOUR account!

@Lucky Charms – Congrats!

Called the reconsideration line and after many questions about my income and new business, got denied. Called right back and the second agent told me the first had recorded my 2012 and 2013 incomes were wrong even though I told the 1st the correct amt. Got approved for 5k

I got mine in the mail today! If I added my husband as an authorized user (technically, an employee) on my Chase Ink Plus card, will all the points go to the same account? I only ask because our credit card numbers are different which seems strange.
