The Chase Ink Plus card is now offering 60,000 bonus points after $5,000 in purchases within the first 3 months through March 1, 2015. The standard offer on the Ink Plus is for 50,000 points, so it’s nice to see an increase of 10,000 points. However, Chase did raise the offer up to 70,000 points last year. The $95 annual fee is not waived for the first year like it has been in the past. Although if you go into the branch to apply you can get the fee waived the first year!
With the Ink Plus Business Card you’ll earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $5,000 in 3 months from account opening. Plus, you’ll earn 5X points per $1 on the first $50,000 spent annually at office supply stores, and on cellular phone, land-line, internet, and cable TV services. You’ll also earn 2X points per $1 on the first $50,000 spent annually at gas stations and for hotel accommodations when purchased directly with the hotel. This card has a $95 annual fee, and it is NOT waived for the first year with this offer.
There are no foreign transaction fees, so this is an excellent for travel to foreign countries. You can transfer points you’ve earned to participating frequent travel programs at 1:1 value.
Ultimate Rewards are the most valuable rewards points. You can use these great points for statement credits, or to book travel through the Ultimate Rewards section of the Chase website. You get a 20% discount when redeeming travel through the Chase website. The real value in UR points is found through transferring them out to one of their travel partners. You can transfer 60,000 Ultimate Rewards points out to United and then book a one-way ticket to Europe using one example. Another great thing to do is keep your mileage programs from expiring using this 1:1 transfer.
You can also earn a $200 bonus with the Ink Cash Business Card which is another offering directly on Chase’s website and not have to pay an annual fee applying online. You’ll earn $200 bonus cash back after you spend $3,000 in 3 months from account opening. Plus, get 5% cash back on the first $25,000 spent annually at office supply stores, and on cellular phone, landline, internet, and cable TV services. You’ll also get 2% cash back on the first $25,000 spent annually at gas stations and restaurants, and 1% cash back on all other card purchases with no limit to the amount you can earn.
