Chase bumps the Ink Bold and Ink Plus cards sign up bonus to 60K (from 50K)!

People who read this blog know I love my Chase Ink Bold card.  It is one of the first cards I recommend after the Chase Sapphire Preferred card because the points can be combined together in one Ultimate Rewards account.  It makes me tens of thousands of miles every month with its 5X points on office supply stores.  The sign up bonus for these cards is typically 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points, but maybe two times a year, they bump it up to 60,000.  This is one of those times!Ink Bold

This is a business card which means it is targeted to small business owners.  But many times you have a small business and don’t even know it!  Read this article I wrote about how to fill out a business application for your ebay, garage sale, freelance writing, or buy and sell business.  You use your personal credit to apply for it!

You can use this card for buying gift cards at Staples or OfficeMax to earn 5X points on all of your spending!  I used this technique this to help me get 257 Miles by buying protein powder!20130823-152613.jpg

This bonus bump applies to both the Chase Ink Bold (which is a charge card and you have to pay off in full each month) and the Chase Ink Plus (which is a credit card which you can pay over time).

My sources tell me that this should last for the month of May.  We will probably see this bonus again in 6 months or so, but if you were considering getting this card soon, then now is the time! If you want an idea of how useful this card is, then check out this list of all of the Ink Bold articles we have written!
