The Ink Plus® Business Credit Card is one of my favorite all around business cards, given that it offers:
- A generous sign-up bonus
- Extremely rewarding bonus categories, including 5x points on office supply stores, and on cellular phone, landline, internet, and cable TV services
- No foreign transaction fees
For the month of May the card offered a 60,000 point sign-up bonus in celebration of Small Business Week, which is the highest we had ever seen.
However, it looks like it has gotten even better for a limited time. The card is now offering a 70,000 point sign-up bonus, but only if you sign-up at a Chase branch.
The other catch is that the $95 annual fee isn’t waived with this offer, which it otherwise is for the first year. Of course it’s totally worth paying $95 for an extra 20,000 Ultimate Rewards points.
This is an awesome sign-up bonus, though you do have to go to a branch to get it. As usual, the big question is whether it will become publicly available, meaning you don’t have to go to a branch to sign-up.
I don’t know the answer, but I guess time will tell. In the meantime, if you want the 70,000 point sign-up bonus as a “sure bet,” head to your nearest Chase branch.
70,000 Ultimate Rewards points is enough for a one-way Singapore Airlines business class flight
The cards benefits are virtually identical, the only real difference is that one is a credit card and the other is a charge card, and you can’t finance charges on the latter. You never should finance charges on a credit card, though, so as far as I’m concerned it’s mostly a marketing distinction (some people don’t even want the option to finance charges over time, so that they’re not tempted to take advantage of it).
Has anyone successfully taken advantage of this offer?
