Greetings from Istanbul!  While I am been using miles and points to fly my husband around the world for his 40th birthday, it looks like Chase has a surprise of their own for us….increased sign-up bonuses for the Ink family of small business cards!

They did this last year for one week to celebrate Small Business Week and some increased sign-up bonuses are back again!  I don’t know how long they will be around, but I know these are the best offers I have seen for these cards in a long time, and I know they didn’t last long last time.  Both the Ink Bold and Ink Plus have increased from 50,000 to 60,000 points after you spend $5,000 in the first the months.  The Ink Cash has increased to a $300 bonus after you spend $3,000 in the first three months.

I love the Ink cards as they pay out 5x per $1 on the first $50,000 spent annually at office supply stores, and on cellular phone, landline, internet, and cable TV services and they earn Ultimate Reward points that can transfer to some of my favorite programs such as United, Hyatt, British Airways, and many more.

Both my husband and my dad were approved for the Ink Plus recently for their small businesses, and I hope many of you are able to get in on these great cards, too!

  1. You MUST get a Turkish bath while in Istanbul. I recommend the Gaia Spa inside the Hyatt. Istanbul… not on my top 10 list. The traffic is brutal. Have fun!

  2. I have the MC version of the Chase Ink & Bold cards.
    If I get the Visa versions, will I get an additional sign up bonus? If I want the Visa versions, how would I get?

  3. I opened a new Chase Ink card two months ago and quickly met the 5k minimum spend. I messsaged Chase this AM asking for the additional 10k points and got approved in less than an hour! The adjustment will show up on my next statement but it’s “available for redemption now” 🙂

  4. Thanks, I used your link to apply. Got deferred and had to call the reconsideration line which was painful: Why do you need so many credit cards with us? (forgot that I’ve opened 4 with Chase already in the last 9 months). Anyway she finally approved me. 🙂

  5. Yes, the reconsideration line is painful. I hate calling. I hate getting my husband to call even worse. LOL! I applied for the ink bold last week for hubby as a sole proprietor for a second business that he has (using just his ssn). Was not instantly approved. He already has the Ink Plus. I have a feeling that they just may want to ask him some more questions about the nature of his business but I think he will probably get approved. He does have alot of credit open with Chase though. We’ll see.

  6. Finally pulled the trigger on this one. Was pretty easy. Called in reconsideration line first thing the next morning and closed my United card that I needed to get rid of anyway and just moved the credit line over. Card should be here tomorrow as it was expedited this morning. Piece of cake. I think i’ll stay calm for a good 6-8 months with Chase.

  7. I signed up using your link and got approved! Thanks for the heads up on this offer. I had already been considering getting the Ink for myself (wife already has one) and this made my decision easy. I had to call in but they just asked a bunch of security questions using credit report info to verify my identity. Love your blog, it is especially helpful as a fellow Houstonian! 🙂

  8. What does it take as far as a business to get these cards? It seems like a lot of people have them. Are you all small business owners or do you simply use it for business expenses? I would like to get one of these cards but I’m not sure what is required to prove your business exactly. Any info on this is much appreciated!

    • Alexis, many small/side businesses seem to qualify. So, if you do anything on the side for money it may well be enough. No guarantees, but has worked for many!
