JP Morgan Chase recently increased their sign-up bonus for the Chase Ink Plus credit card to 70,000 points. Even at the standard 50,000 point bonus, this is a must-have credit card for any business owner. For qualification purposes, the definition of “business” can be loose.
The best features of Chase Ink Plus card include:
– 1:1 points transfer to a list of leading partner programs, including United Mileage Plus, British Airways Executive Club, Singapore Airlines Krisflyer, Hyatt Gold Passport, and Marriott Rewards.
– 5X points earned per $1 spent at office supply stores and on cellular phone, landline, internet and cable TV services.
– 2X points earned per $1 spent on purchases at gas stations and hotel accommodations when purchased directly with the hotel.
– No foreign transaction fees and chip technology (**both are absolutely critical for international travel**)
Once you are approved for the Chase Ink Plus card, spend $5000 within the first 3 months to qualify for the 70,000 point bonus. Note that Chase does not offer a first year waiver of the $95 annual fee with this current increased offer. Regardless, 70,000 points directly translates into $875 of free travel when booked through Chase Ultimate Rewards. The value could increase to as much as $2000 in free travel when the points are transferred to a partner program like Hyatt Gold Passport or United Mileage Plus. Ask me how!
