For a limited time, Chase is offering an increased sign-up bonus of 70,000 Ultimate Rewards points on the Ink Plus Business Credit Card after spending $5,000 within three months. This is an incredible offer, as the highest sign-up bonus Chase has offered to the general public has been 60,000 Ultimate Rewards points.
The offer was made available earlier this summer, but you could only get it by going in to a Chase branch, so this is much more convenient for many of us.
The catch with this bonus is that the $95 annual fee isn’t waived, which it otherwise has been for the first year. With an extra 20,000 Ultimate Rewards points, I would say that it is definitely worth paying the $95 annual fee.
The Ink Plus Business Credit Card comes with great benefits that include the following:
- Earn 5x points per $1 on the first $50,000 spent at office supply stores and on cable, internet, TV, and cell phones.
- Earn 2x points per $1 on the first $50,000 at gas stations and hotel accommodations
- No foreign transaction fees
- 1:1 point transfer to many frequent travel programs

For me, this makes it a great card for everyday spend. I have an outrageous cell phone bill, so getting 5x points there is fantastic, not to mention the other bonus categories.
In addition to being an extremely rewarding small business credit card, the Ink Plus® Business Credit Card also offers several tools for managing small business expenses. Additional employees can be given cards for no fee, and the card administrator can set individual spending limits on each card, which is a nice feature.
It’s also worth noting that you’re looking for more of a rebate towards travel, you can always redeem your points towards travel through the Ultimate Rewards mall. It’s typically not as great a value as you’d get by transferring points to travel partners, but even when redeeming through the Ultimate Rewards mall you’re still getting a 20% discount on travel.
This is a great offer, actually the best offer that has ever been made publicly available for this card. In terms of the value from everyday spend and the new sign-up bonus, this card is top notch. If you don’t have it already, hopefully this bonus is enough to make you “bite.” It should be a no brainer.
