LOWER SPEND FOR CHASE INK BOLD, INK PLUS, INK CLASSIC & INK CASH


Well, folks Chase is on a roll right now with hot credit card offers.  You’ll have plenty of great bonuses to choose from this fall with the Southwest Airlines 50,000 point offer that was just launched and now today the new Chase Ink card offers.  Who knows maybe they’ll roll out more fun bonuses before the year is out!  Gotta love all these points!  So much fun!

Be sure to check out these offers because they are excellent.  The minimum spend on the Ink Bold® Business Card & Ink Plus® Business Card has been $10,000 and is now $5,000; making this offer a little easier for average folks like me and you.  They lowered the minimum spend earlier this year and that is when I grabbed my Ink Bold® Business Card.  I’ve been banking huge points ever since.  I think I’ll be getting the Ink Plus® Business Card this round.  Here are the links and a card comparison sheet I made up for you to see the benefits of each card.

These Chase Ink cards are probably the most popular credit cards in the mile and point world right now.  The reason being is because of the high value that most collectors place on Ultimate Rewards points.  If you don’t know much about Ultimate Rewards points and want to understand why they are so valuable, check out my recent series here

Ultimate Rewards Points 101 – Part 2

This will give you a real good grasp of the program’s features and how to use the features.  After you’ve read that over, if you still have questions feel free to shoot me an email. I’d be happy to answer any questions you have.  I’m always available to you.  I highly recommend getting one or a couple of this cards.  Remember if you have one version, you can get another bonus for a different version.  Even though they have very similar benefits they are all separate cards with separate bonuses to be earned. Remember you always want to keep open a Chase Sapphire Preferred Card, Ink Bold® Business Card or Ink Plus® Business Card to be able to use the very important point transfer feature with the Ultimate Rewards program.  Only these cards have that feature available.  Though the other cards earn Ultimate Rewards points they don’t have access to the point transfer feature in their Ultimate Rewards account.

The earning potential with these cards is the best available from any lender.  Combining one of these cards with tools like the American Express Bluebird Prepaid card or American Express Target Prepaid card or many other creative options can really create a points earning machine.  Read more here about using the American Express Bluebird with the Chase Ink cards to really maximize the 5x points earnings.  If you have any questions, please email me

    1. @Lucy. Great question! Sorry my comparison chart wasn’t clear. I was trying to keep it from being wording but in doing that I can see it wasn’t clear. I have updated it for you & others. To answer you question, for Ink Bold & Ink Plus it is $50,000 annual spend for 5x pt. category & $50,000 annual spend for 2x pt category. For Ink Classic it is $25,000 annual spend for 5x pt category and $25,000 for 2x pt category. For Ink Cash, it is $25,000 annual spend for 5% cashback category and $25,000 annual for 2% cashback category.

    1. @Rahul – Yes in theory because they are different card products. I would go for both especially right now with the min. spend at only $5,000. I is expected to increase back up to 10,000 at the end of the month. You have nothing to loose but 2-3 points for the 2nd app but everything to gain…..50,000 extra points plus all the benefits of have two cards that you can maximize and earn 5x everywhere.
