CHASE INK PLUS & INK CASH BONUS INCREASED – 60,000 & 30,000 points
HOT DEAL ALERT
Chase has just released a new increased bonus offer on both the Ink Plus Business Card and the Ink Cash Business Card. The Ink Plus has an increased bonus from 50,000 bonus points to 60,000 points. The Ink Cash is increased from 20,000 bonus points to 30,000 points. The normal offer for these cards is very good but with these increased bonuses this is a must if you don’t have these cards or haven’t had them recently.
The minimum spends is lower than in previous years. When I applied three years ago for the Ink Plus, I had to meet a $10,000 minimum spend. It was doable with all the creative spending tools available but it’s much easier at $5,000 for the Ink Plus and $3,000 for the Ink Cash.
If you were considering the Chase Ink Plus or Ink Cash now is definitely the time to pull the trigger on that application. Remember, if you have the Ink Bold, you can also apply for the Ink Plus. If you’ve had both like me, you might consider the Ink Cash Business card which is a great keeper card because it has no annual fee.
NOTE: The Ink Cash earns Ultimate Rewards points even though it says “cash”. They award this in the form of points. These can be combined together with points from your Ink Plus, and Chase Sapphire Preferred. You can also apply for the Chase Sapphire Preferred right now and receive 40,000 bonus points. So if you opened the Ink Plus (60,000 bonus offer) and Sapphire Preferred Card (40,000 bonus offer) that would be a total of 100,000 Ultimate Rewards points! Now there is an awesome combo! You can find the Chase Sapphire offer here.

You also do not need a tax identification number. You can apply using your own social security number. Even if you don’t have much income, you can still qualify as a start up business to apply for business credit cards as they based the approval primarily on your personal credit score even when you use a tax id.
So bottom line, if you are in a good place with your credit scores and finances to apply for a credit card, these are excellent offers. The flexibility of Chase Ultimate Rewards points and their program just can’t be beat!
