Three Ways You Can Get Big Ultimate Rewards from 70k Ink Plus Offer


Just Another Points Traveler reports that the 70,000 point sign up bonus on the Ink Plus is back.

That’s fantastic news because the Ink Plusis already one of the best cards on the market for business when it has its normal 50,000 point sign up bonus.

Offer details of 70,000 point offer from Just Another Points Traveler:

  • LIMITED TIME BONUS OFFER: Earn 70,000 bonus points after you spend $5,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. That’s $875 toward travel when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards.
  • Named “Best for Travel Rewards for Small Business” MONEY® Magazine, October 2013
  • Earn 5X points per $1 on the first $50,000 spent in combined purchases at office supply stores and on cellular phone, landline, internet and cable TV services each account anniversary year.
  • Earn 2X points per $1 on the first $50,000 spent in combined purchases at gas stations and hotel accommodations when purchased directly with the hotel each account anniversary year.
  • No foreign transaction fees.
  • 1:1 point transfer to leading frequent travel programs with no transfer fees.
  • $95 Annual Fee

The big difference other than the extra 20,000 bonus points is that this offer does not waive the $95 annual fee for the first year. That’s a bummer, but it is worth paying $95 for 20,000 extra points.

There are three ways you can get big points from this new offer:

  1. Folks who don’t have an Ink Plus can get one and get 70,000 bonus points after spending $5,000 in three months
  2. Folks who got an Ink Plus in the last three months can try to get matched to the new better offer to get 20,000 more bonus points.
  3. Folks who have had an Ink Plus for a while can refer friends and get 10,000 bonus points per approved friend.

Keep reading for more information on the three ways to earn extra Ultimate Rewards today.

1. Apply for the Ink Plus for 70,000 bonus points.

Remember that the Ink Bold and Ink Plus are two separate products, so if you have one and not the other, you can apply for the one you don’t have if it would help your business.

The Bold is a charge card you need to pay in full each month. The Plus is a credit card on which you can run a balance and pay interest each month. If you plan to pay interest on a credit card, don’t get a rewards card because the interest rates are higher.

2. Ask to be matched to 70k offer.

If you applied for an Ink Plus in the last 90 days, you can ask Chase to match you to today’s better offer via a Secure Message on

There’s no guarantee you will be matched, but it’s worth a try. Many people have earned many Ultimate Rewards this way.

3. Refer a friend for 10k Ultimate Rewards.

If you are an existing cardholder, you can refer friends via email, twitter, or facebook to earn Ultimate Rewards.

Start here and input your name, zip code, and last 4 digits of your Ink Plus. You can then get a link for Facebook or Twitter or send emails to friends.

Here is my link, embedded in this tweet, to apply for an Ink Plus and earn me 10,000 Ultimate Rewards on top of 70,000 for you:

You can earn a maximum of 50,000 Ultimate Rewards from referrals.

  1. @milevalue
    -i just received the 70k ink+ offer in the mail. but.. i last had the ink+ feb 2013 – jan 2014.
    -has chase been enforcing 24 months in order to churn?
    -i recently opened the UA personal 55k bonus.. but also received a LETTER saying i would NOT get the bonus since ive received a similar bonus in the past 2 years. awful.
    -BUT, ive gotten the CSP bonus twice in the last less-than-2-yrs.
    -seems chase actually started enforcing churning this past summer?

    • I got the Ink Plus for two separate businesses within two years. Chase has always, to my knowledge, been enforcing the 24 month rule. Possibly the reason you got two CSP bonuses is that the card switched from a MasterCard to a Visa, so it was considered a new product for you.

  2. I have an Ink Bold that is ~15 months old. Can I still get an Ink Plus for a minor business. I was just about to do a set of applications for Chase Sapphire Preferred cards for myself and my wife. Is that too many applications at once?

    • You can have an Ink Plus and Bold at the same time for the same business in my experience. You can be approved for one personal and one business card from Chase at the same time in my experience. If you can handle the $11k spending in 3 months (2x CSP + Plus), then this will net you a lot of points.

  3. @Scott Grimmer
    -hmm.. if you receive to ink+ bonuses in less than 24mos, then chase isnt enforcing the 24mo churn, right?
    -i received 2 CSP bonuses in less than 24mos..both CSPs were visa, not MCs.
    -ive churned many identical chase cards in less than 24mos before… this UA bonus denial is the first ive ever encountered. sucks…what if i switched my freq flier # tied to the UA card.. you think that might work?

  4. Scott:
    Is the current Ink plus card Mastercard or Visa? How would I know? It does not say on the to pof the card. I got a Visa version in May but most wholesale clubs do not accept Visa and I need a Mastercard.

  5. does anyone know if Chase really tightened its rule for posting the bonus, strict 24 months? Or they just say that but actually don’t care?
