Update: Just to clarify, the 70,000 point offer is only for the Chase Ink Plus and not the Chase Ink Bold.
The Chase Ink Bold & Plus cards are my favorite business credit cards on the market earning Ultimate Rewards points that are transferable to many great travel programs. Not to mention their awesome 5x and 2x spending categories that can help you earn thousands of additional points and allow you to reach awesome redemption value like their newest UR partner: Singapore Airlines. Normally, the cards have a 50,000 point sign up offer and most recently, Chase upgraded that offer for a limited time to 60,000 points. The latest news on the card is that many people have found a 70,000 point bonus being offered to them inside the Chase bank branches. Others have mentioned that they have been able to get 50,000 and 60,000 offer with a waived annual fee.
If you recently signed up for the Chase Ink card and have had the card for 90 days, I highly suggest that you send a private message in your Chase Account regarding your “Rewards Activity” and request that Chase matches the 70,000 point offer. I’ve written in the past about how great Chase’s private messaging service and that I’ve had 100% success rate when it comes to having credit card sign up offers matched! I just sent my message and I’m eagerly awaiting a response to see if it works. If you recently signed up for the 60,000 point offer last month, you should definitely try your luck to get matched.
Earn up to 5x points with Chase Ink cards:
Earn 5x points for every dollar spent on:
- Telecommunications (cell phone, cable, internet, and satellite TV bills).
- Office supply stores such as Staples, OfficeMax, and Office Depot. These stores carry gift cards for many stores that can help you rack up a ton of points. Instead of using your credit card to make purchases directly with stores like Macy’s, Sephora, AMC movie theaters, restaurants, or even Amazon.com, go to an office supply store and buy gift cards there with your Ink card to receive 5x points!
Earn 2x points at gas stations (many gas stations also carry gift cards) and 2x points for hotels for up to $50,000 worth of spending in bonus categories each year, which equates to a potential 250,000 bonus points!

Ultimate Rewards is by far one of the most valuable travel reward programs in existence. Chase UR Points are transferrable to multiple airlines and hotel chains giving you the freedom and flexibility to transfer your points instantaneously to make a booking of your choice. Travel programs include British Airways Executive Club, Korean Air SKYPASS, Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards®, United MileagePlus®, Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, Amtrak Guest Rewards®, Hyatt Gold Passport®, Marriott Rewards®, IHG® Rewards Club and The Ritz-Carlton Rewards®.
United is a valuable program to transfer to as they have amazing award availability and don’t have fuel surcharges on flights overseas. Redeem 25,000 points for a free round trip ticket from Los Angeles to New York, while 60,000 points can get you a free round trip ticket to Europe and a free stopover. Or redeem points for flights at as little as 4,500 points using British Airways Avios! British Airways is an amazing award partner with an award chart that goes according to the distance that you fly. Read my post about why British Airways Avios points are so valuable and how you can redeem free trips for only 4,500 points.
Korean Air has leading first class service to Asia with first class flights redeemable at only 80,000 points each way! United will charge up to 120,000 points to fly to Asia in first class with their partner airlines. Read about Korean Air’s leading first class service and about transferring your UR points to Korean Air, a member of the Star Alliance network.
You can redeem nights for as little as 5,000 points or if you’re feeling luxurious, use 30,000 points for a category 7 Park Hyatt hotel in Paris, Tokyo, or Sydney among others that go for over $1,000 a night! Hyatt has the best value of any hotel reward program in my opinion and you can combine cash with points to stay more nights for less.
Also, if you like to make online purchases at your favorite stores, you can earn up double, triple or up to 15x or even 30x points when using the Chase Ultimate Rewards shopping portal to shop through online retailers such as Kohls, Macy’s, Amazon, Sephora, and Groupon.
