Rumor alert!

Via Doctor of Credit, Chase may increase the sign-up bonus of the Chase Ink Business Preferred to 100,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points!

Rumor Chase Ink Business Preferred Sign Up Bonus Will Increase To 100000 Points
100,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards Points Is More Than Enough for 2 Round-Trip Coach Tickets From the US to Peru!

If this is true, this will be the best sign-up bonus EVER for this card!

The Chase Ink Business Preferred currently comes with a sign-up bonus of 80,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after spending $5,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening.

But there’s a rumor that Chase may increase the bonus to 100,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points within the next 5 months!  That’s good news for folks who aren’t restricted by the Chase “5/24 rule”.

The card also comes with:

  • 3X Chase Ultimate Rewards points for every $1 you spend on travel, shipping purchases, internet, cable and phone services, advertising purchases made with social media sites, and search engines
  • 1X Chase Ultimate Rewards points on all other purchases
  • Up to $600 in cell phone insurance when you pay your cell phone bill with the card
  • Primary auto rental insurance (CDW) when renting for business purposes, plus purchase and extended warranty protection

The card has a $95 annual fee.

If you’re considering the Ink Business Preferred, it might be a good idea to wait and see if this rumor is true.  And if you’ve recently (within ~90 days) received the card with the 80,000 point bonus, it could be worth calling Chase or sending them a secure message to see if they’ll match you to the better offer.

You can read my full review of the Chase Ink Business Preferred here.

Earlier today we told you about ANOTHER 100,000-point offer, this time from American Express.

Bottom Line

Chase MAY be increasing the sign-up bonus of the Ink Business Preferred from 80,000 points to 100,000 points.  If this turns out to be true, folks who have recently applied for the card can try secure messaging Chase to ask them to match the new bonus.

Cross your fingers that this is more than a rumor!

FYIm DOC says this will probably be targeted (according to Chase social media team) http://www.doctorofcredit.com/rumor-chase-ink-preferred-signup-bonus-increasing-100000-ur-soon-ish/

just got the Chase Ink Bus Pref cc , with 80k offer.

Since the expected increase to a 100K offer hasn’t happened yet, do you suggest I wait for it to become public before asking Chase CS to do an offer-match?

I can see myself asking for it now, and t=Chase responding that the offer hasn’t been released yet.

My wife is 6/24 until next February 2018 when 2 cards go over 2 years opening 1 spot. Chase has mailed her 3 times in the last two months with an “invitation code” asking her to apply for Ink Preferred for 80000 pts. Is this invitation code a way to bypass the 5/24 curse or would it only be a trap & result in a 5/24 denial and a wasted hard inquiry. Who needs that kind of invitation and why would they send it out

I applied for this card back in Dec thinking I was under 5/24 but sadly I was declined. I know for SURE I will be under 5/24 by April, does Chase require a time limit in between reapplying for a card if you’ve already been denied it? I just cannot pass up 100,000 Chase points!
