Chase Ink Offers Increased – 60K Bold/Plus

From June 16 – 22, in support of National Small Business Week, Chase is increasing the sign up bonuses for their Business cards!

  • Ink Bold: 60,000 Bonus Points after spending $5,000 in the first 3 months of opening the card.
  • Ink Plus: 60,000 Bonus Points after spending $5,000 in the first 3 months of opening the card.
  • Ink Classic: 25,000 Bonus Points after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months of opening the card.

These are the best offers for these cards to date. Click here to go directly to Chase’s site to apply for the cards. Note: No affiliate links here!

I’ll personally be going for another Ink Bold card using my LLC’s Tax ID. Previously, all my Business cards have been applied for using my SSN, which is a viable option as well.

Differences Between the Cards

Ink Bold & Ink Plus

Ink Bold is a charge card.It has no preset spending limit. The balance must be paid in full each month.

This should be happening anyway. If you aren’t doing this, then you should probably stop messing around with credit and get your finances straight!

Ink Plus is a credit card. You will get a credit limit like any other card. You can carry balances with this card. Obviously, don’t do it!

Both Ink Bold & Plus have no foreign transactions fees. Also, their annual fees are waived for the first year. $95 thereafter.

Ink Classic

Ink Classic is a credit card as well. Also, the Ink Classic does not have the ability of the Bold & Plus cards to transfer 1:1 to Chase’s travel partners: United Airlines, British Airways, Korean Air, Southwest, Virgin Atlantic, Priority Club, Hyatt, Marriott, & Amtrak.

Ink Classic WILL incur foreign transaction fees, but there is never any annual fee with that card.

How To Apply for a Business Card When You Don’t Have a Business

For info about how to apply for a Business card even though you don’t really think you have a legitimate “business,” click here.

Basically, you’ll have to speak to an adviser who is generally going to ask you a bunch of questions about your business. The usual ones that I’ve gotten are as follows:

  • What is your title/position in the business?
  • How long have you been in business?
  • What is your annual revenue?
  • How much profit/loss?
  • What other assets would you like to be included in this consideration?
  • What is your annual gross income?

Wrap Up

If you were waiting for a time to apply for a Chase Ultimate Rewards Business Card, wait no longer! This is the best bonus that Chase has ever offered for these cards and it is very limited time only.

Credit card sign up bonuses still remain the easiest way to big miles & points balances and we continue to leverage them often. It’s the best way for us to feed our hunger for premium cabin travel!
