Another great card that earns you Ultimate Rewards points is both the Chase Ink Bold Business card
and the Chase Ink Plus Business
. Both of these cards come with a great sign up bonus of 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points
. The power of these two cards is the ability to earn 5 points per dollar on the first $50,000 spent annually
at office supply stores, and on cellular phone, landline, internet, and cable TV services. This would total 250,000 Ultimate Rewards
points per year if you max out this benefit. All business owners would be very wise to run as many of their expenses through this card. I was just discussing the power of this card with a friend at a party this weekend. Little did she know that her husband with his concrete business could be using a card like this to earn a huge amount of points each year; 250,000 points to be exact. Or 500,000 points
per year if she also had a Chase Ink Bold
or Chase Ink
Remember creative people are the winners in most things in life. The same applies in the mile and point hobby. So you might be wondering how does a concrete contractor maximize his earnings with a card like this? Well, the Chase Ink Bold
or Chase Ink
Plus are a contractors dream. Every contractor I know shops quite often at a big store called Home Depot
. Now most every office supply store I’ve ever been in sells Home Depot gift cards
. Are you following…….? The contractor simply goes to Office Max, Staples, Office Depot, etc. and buys X amount of Home Depot cards that he needs that week for supplies with of course his Chase Ink Bold
/Plus card. This earns him 5 points
per dollar and all materials his company buys at Home Depot. Then he takes those cards to Home Depot and buys his supplies. Keep in mind, retail gift cards
like a Home Depot card or other retail store cards have no additional fee like Visa/AMEX gift cards do. There you have it! A match made in heaven. So always think outside the box and you’ll see the gems in life!
Now is also a great time to get the Chase Ink Bold
Ink Plus because Chase has recently reduced the minimum spend required to receive the 50,000 bonus points to only $5,000. In the past, the minimum spend has been $10,000. This minimum spend is much quicker to achieve and especially with the creative tools I talk about here.
The Ultimate Rewards program is quite superior to many other programs right now even it’s big competitor Membership Rewards through American Express. If you aren’t collecting Ultimate Rewards points, you definitely should be because of the redemption flexibility this program offers. You are in a box with so many other programs but not the Ultimate Rewards program.
