New Limited Time Increased Bonus: Ink Cash to 30,000 Points!

I’ve already shared that the Ink Plus temporarily raised its sign-up bonus in honor of Small Business Week, but now the Ink Cash has also temporarily raised its sign-up bonus until 5/25/15!  For many of us the Ink Cash may actually make more sense to get than the Ink Plus, so read on for full details!

Ink Cash® Business Credit Card: 30,000 points after spending $3,000 in the first three months, no annual fee (THIS OFFER IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE).


The limited time bonus offer gives $300 bonus cash (aka 30,000 points) after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months.  This is an increase over the usual $200 in bonus cash after you spend $3,000 in the first 3 months.  What is absolutely great about this card is that it has no annual fee and it still gives 5x points at office supply stores and on cellular phone, landline, internet and cable TV services just like the Ink Plus.  The only difference in that respect is that the cap with the Ink Cash is 5x on the first $25,000 spent each year instead of the first $50,000.

It also gives 2x points at gas stations and restaurants on the first $25,000 spent in those categories each anniversary year.  You will see this card advertised as a cash back card, but the reality is that if you or your spouse also have the Ink Plus, Ink Bold, or Chase Sapphire Preferred card that you can use the points earned as transferable points to Ultimate Rewards partners like United, Hyatt, Southwest, Singapore, Marriott, and more (just like with the Chase Freedom).

This card can make more sense for some than the Ink Plus since it has no annual fee, still earns 5x, and the points can transfer to hotel and airline partners as long as you also have a card that earns full Ultimate Reward like the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card.  To put it another way, while the Ink Plus clearly has the higher sign-up bonus, but the  Ink Cash® Business Credit Card ( THIS OFFER IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE.) is actually better for many of us to keep for the long term thanks to having no annual fee – just be sure to get in on the increased bonus by 5/25/15!

  1. Sent a secure message this morning and they gave me another 10,000 points since I signed up for it last month.

  2. Is this easier to get than the Ink Plus for pre-revenue startups? From what I understand, Chase is less welcoming nowadays to businesses without much income.

    • Juno, you pretty much universally never get sign-up bonuses with downgrades. What you can do is apply for the Ink Cash to get the sign-up bonus and then cancel the Ink Plus, if you wished.

      • Thanks.. I’m pretty maxed out with 6 cards with Chase (biz and Personal) so I’m hesitant to apply for a new card… what to do.. what to do.. 🙂 When is your baby due?? Would you let your readers send gifts through Gift registry or something?

  3. Hi Summer, I’m in a similar situation to Juno. Right now I have 8 personal cards with Chase plus 1 business card- the Ink Plus. I was intending to replace it with the Ink Cash around August when the annual fee kicks in, but certainly don’t want to miss out on the higher sign-up bonus. Chase just approved me for both the IHG and the United MileagePlus Explorer card at the end of March. I guess Chase really likes me! (of course I have my mortgage with them too).

    Any thoughts? What would be the chance that Chase would approve me for the Ink Cash card? Should I even apply? I do have one card in my portfolio that I wouldn’t mind giving up (Amazon card) to get this one.

    • No way to tell it probably worth a shot if this was on your list to get soon. May require a call but certainly not impossible.

  4. Thanks for the alert – I used your link and, after a few days’ delay, was approved today. Having no annual fee is quite a feature.
