Via Reddit Churning there is an excellent new 70,000 bonus points offer on the Chase Ink Plus Business Credit Card.

Similar to last year, Chase is increasing the sign-up bonus by 10,000 points (normally 60k) as a National Small Business Week promotion.

The catch is that the offer is only available by applying in-person at a Chase branch. The offer is valid until May 15, 2016. Also note that the $95 annual fee on the card is not waived the first year.

70,000 Point Chase Ink Sign-up Bonus

To get this offer you must go into a Chase branch and apply in-person before May 15, 2016. As of now there is no application available online, but you can always try to secure message Chase and request for a match of the current higher offer (read more here).

Chase Ink Plus 70k Offer Details:

  • Earn 70,000 Ultimate Rewards points after spending $5,000 within the first 3 months.
  • $95 annual fee is not waived.
  • 5X Ultimate Rewards points per $1 spent on office supply, phone, and TV/internet purchases (up to $50,000 spent annually)
  • 2X Ultimate Rewards points per $1 spent at gas stations and hotels (up to $50,000 spent annually).
  • 1X points on all other purchases.
  • Offer expires on 5/15/16

This 70,000 Ultimate Rewards points bonus is the highest bonus ever offered on the Ink Plus. The Chase Ink Cash ($0 annual fee) is also offering an all-time high bonus right now of 30,000 Ultimate Rewards points.

Both of the Chase Ink cards are business credit cards, but you can likely qualify even if have a simple business and have never previously had a business credit card. Check out this post about the ways to qualify and apply for a business credit card.

If you have recently signed up for the Chase Ink Plus 60,000 point offer if may be worth sending Chase a secure message requesting an offer match. The best case scenario is that you score an 10,000 extra Ultimate Rewards points, the worst case is that you spent 2 minutes and they don’t match it.

  • I went into my local Chase branch today to open up a business account, and was surprised to find the 70,000 UR bonus + 1st AF waived offered by my banker. Applied on the spot, awaiting decision.
