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:

Feel free to leave your link in the comments.

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