Since May 1, Chase has been offering increased sign-up bonuses on their Ink Business Cards. This is a promotion they run in celebration of National Small Business Week. They offered the promotion last year for a week, while this year they’re offering it for an entire month. Chase has just confirmed that they’ll be offering the increased Ink sign-up bonus until June 1, 2014. The sign-up bonus for each of these cards is 10,000 points more than usual, so that’s a 20% increase in the sign-up bonus for the Ink Plus and Ink Bold, and 50% increase in the sign-up bonus for the Ink Cash.

So if you haven’t yet gotten in on the bonuses, you have a bit over a week to do so. The Ink Plus and Ink Bold are in my opinion the two best business cards on the market, for two reasons in particular:

  • 5X points on the first $50,000 spent annually at office supply stores, and on cellular phone, landline, internet, and cable TV services
  • No foreign transaction fees

And the Ink Cash is a great no annual fee alternative to the “premium” Ink Plus and Ink Bold Cards.

As a reminder, here are the offers and marketing bullets for the cards:

Bottom line

  1. Have Bold and Plus. Chase changed my Bold account number and sent letter stating the switch to Visa but to keep using “old” card until new one arrives. Card set to arrive sometime in June. Is there a way to get in on the 60K offer?

  2. I have (well, had) about 10 Chase cards, including Ink Bold and Ink Plus. A few weeks ago, in anticipation of the MasterCard-to-Visa transition) I called Chase to close my Ink Bold (at the same time I also closed an old Chase United MP visa card I had not used in ages).

    I was planning to wait a couple months before signing up for the Ink Bold (as a Visa card, a new product, I expect to get the sign-up bonus).

    My question: Do you think it would be a problem to apply for the Ink Bold visa so soon (say, on May 30) after closing my Ink Bold MC? It would be less than a month between closing the old one and applying for the new one..

    Thanks.

  3. @ Aldo — In my experience the closing date of another card doesn’t really impact whether or not you’ll be approved for a new card. I don’t think that should be an issue, personally.

  4. Lucky. You sure it’s not ending on May 31 as June 1 it’s not back to normal? If it’s to celebrate small business month, wouldn’t make sense to have it June 1… No?
