Perhaps others already knew this, though it’s news to me.

The Ink Bold® Business Charge Card and Ink Plus® Business Credit Card are among my favorite credit/charge cards (in the interest of full disclosure those are my affiliate links), especially since they offer 5x Ultimate Rewards points on the first $50,000 spent annually at office supply stores, and on cellular phone, landline, internet, and cable TV services.

I have a Gogo monthly internet pass (which is $34.95 for American Airlines), and up until last month had it billed to my Starwood American Express, since I assumed it didn’t qualify for bonus points in any specific category.

Last month I asked myself whether Gogo would qualify in the 5x points bonus category under “internet,” though I figured it wouldn’t be coded as such since Gogo isn’t a “traditional” internet service provider. Nonetheless I changed my credit card on file to the Chase Ink Plus, just out of curiosity.

My statement just closed and I’m happy to report that I received 5x Ultimate Rewards points for my Gogo monthly fee. Wohoo!

So to those of you that use Gogo but don’t pay with your Ink Bold or Ink Plus cards, you’re missing out!

  1. Sweet! Still using up my comp passes from AA but once those are up I will switch! Thanks for the tip. Anybody have an idea if stamps.com purchase for postage would count?

  2. @ UnitedEF — I don’t believe so, but you never know!

    @ Grant — They also sell passes on a per flight basis, though the price varies.

  3. @grant Yes, free.
    I was suprised to learn that you can actually get gogo free by bypassing it. It’s apparently an issue gogo is aware of and doesn’t feel like fixing. If your interested in learning how to get it and have some minimal comp skills, just google gogo hack.
