I’ve been asked to remove my affiliate links for the Chase Ink Bold which offers a 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points sign-up bonus after spending $5,000 within 3 months by 10:00 am EST on April 18, 2012.

I speculated last week, that Chase would soon ask me to remove my links since the offer on their own website is less generous than the offer available through affiliates.

The current offer on the Chase website for the Ink Bold is for25,000 points after your 1st purchase and another 25,000 points after spending $10,000 within 3 months.

Readers have confirmed that you can get the bonus on the current Chase Ink Bold for a 2nd time even if you had the old version of the Chase Ink Bold (which gave you bonus points for meeting certain spending thresholds) and which was discontinued around November 29, 2011.

The current Chase Ink Bold offers 5X points on telecomunications & office supplies and 2X points on gas and hotels.

Given what happened with the Chase Sapphire Preferred and the Chase Freedom, where Chase reduced the offer on their website before reducing the offer for affiliates like me, I’m pretty sure that my link to the Chase Ink Bold will be reduced to the version requiring $10,000 in spending after 10:00 am tomorrow.

See my earlier posts on how to qualify for a business card.  Chase usually lets you get 1 personal and 1 business card at a time, but you have to call to get approved.

Update: I just applied for the card and I called after applying.  I asked the agent to look up my application using my social security number and she asked me questions on my business (how long have I had it, what is my current and expected revenue, and verified my job and income from my job.

After that, she offered to move credit from my Chase Sapphire Preferred or Hyatt cards, but I asked her instead if she could close my British Airways card and move credit from there.  It took me about 5 minutes to get approved.

Chase has also asked me to remove links to the Chase Ink Business Cash Credit Card and to the Chase Ink Classic as well.

Bottom Line:  While this may seem like bad news, it could actually benefit folks who can now get 25,000 points after just their first purchase.
