Current public offer as of April 2020: 100k for $10k spend in 3 months: https://creditcards.chase.com/busine...-business-card
This offer was originally scheduled to expire on April 2 but has been extended to an unknown date.
Note: This is now branded as the United Business Card, without the "Explorer" branding. It is believed that this is considered by Chase to be a new product compared to the Explorer Business Card.

Older offers:
New public 100K tiered offer: 50/$5K+50/$25K- offer August 2019: https://creditcards.chase.com/small-...lorer-business
Public offer: Now 50K miles. $3000 spend in 3 months & fee waived 1st yr.
Possibly targeted: 50k miles plus $50 statement credit, $3000 spend in 3 months, fee waived first year (thanks, DoctorofCredit)

For the complete list of all Chase Credit card public offers, see the Chase sitemap : https://creditcards.chase.com/sitemap


Can I apply for this card after earning a previous bonus on it?
Are there are any rules or restrictions to keep in mind when applying for an Ink card?
What is the Chase "5/24" policy? Does it apply to this card?
If my application isn't approved instantly, should I call in?
How can I determine the deadline for meeting the spend requirement to earn the signup bonus?
After being denied, how long should I wait before applying again for the same card?
How long should I wait after closing my card before applying again for the same card?
See the wiki at Applying for Chase Credit cards.

Can I have MileagePlus Explorer Business Card if I already have a MileagePlus Explorer personal card?Yes. They are different products.

If I earned a 50k bonus within last 24 months on a MP Explorer Business card with one EIN, would I be able to apply for and receive a new bonus with a new MP Explorer Business card with a different business EIN?No. Even if your businesses have separate EINs, you must wait the 24 months.

Once I meet the spending requirement, how soon will I receive my bonus points?Bonus points typically accrue at the close of the billing period in which you incur the corresponding charges. Points should appear in your United account within a day or two thereafter.

NOTE: If you complete your required spending within 7-10 days of your statement close, the bonus may not post until the following month's statement, even if the regular per-dollar points post on the first statement. This is normal behavior for Chase and is not worth a phone call.

Where can I find details on the travel & purchase-protection benefits for this card?Here: https://www.chasebenefits.com/unitedVW4

Q: I am guessing the answer is no, but - is the annual spend treated separately for personal and business card, even if its tied to same MP number?

A: chase rep said its two different spends/bonuses

Another question came up though - would I get two statement credits, ie one on each card?

this worked for me

Found this website that shows the screen shots of what to click on. After doing exactly what they described I was sent to the 50k business application page.

That's the route I used to see the offer.

I saw the offer first, then came here seeking help on how to modify my name in the application.

I don't include my middle initial on credit cards (so I can loan it to my dad as needed). The application page includes my middle initial. I cannot edit the middle initial field to remove it. Suggestions (besides my dad getting his own card)?

Ignore it? How often do people actually check the middle initial when you use a credit card?

How many is to many business apps for chase business? This is a nice deal, and I just signed up for the ink plus
Total of 4 cards
3 personal (sept-nov apps)
1 business (business was December app)

Maybe I should just go with the chase bold down the road and just transfer points if I want.

It really depend up to many factors - your credit history, business credit history, your usage and some solid reason.

Ink Plus has all features that you will find with Ink Bold, except Ink Bold is a charge card ( With flexible spending power ).

Only problem is that you've applied for 4 cards with chase in 6 months. Personally I think they'll probably ding you unless your business is pretty legitimate and you haven't gotten a bunch of other apps out there. Since this is business card # 2, you might get lucky.

I just got dinged for this card (first ding ever). Already had 3 personal, and 2 business cards though. They said I had too many credit checks in the past year (11), and too many new business credit cards with them (past 12 months). I had no chase apps in the prior 6 months, credit score of 760, high income.

You can go ahead to apply for 30K offer, then later send a Secure Message to match offer for 50k.

Would this really work? If you done it this way, when did you apply for the card?

A. Not sure when was the last time they offered the 50k point for this business card. I was told that Chase will only honor offers within 90 days.

B. I don't have a screenshot of the 50k promo.

Thanks

Last night, I applied using the instructions included in post#76. On the final application, I did not see anywhere any mention of 50k or 30k miles. I still took the chance and applied. Got a pending message. Called reconsideration line this morning. Was approved with $24k limit. Confirmed with the CSR the sign-in bonus offer and she confirmed that it is 50k United miles for $2k spend
