What's the best current offer?
  • 80,000 Chase UR points after $5K spend in 3 months, with $95 annual fee (not waived the first year)

May 2018: A 100,000 points offer is available from the Business Rep at your local Chase branch office. This is not available online and Chase will not retroactively up-match to this offer, even if you were recently approved via an online application. The 100k in-branch offer was previously available, then discontinued, and now seems to be back at least for Small Business Week 2018. Additionally, for those who may be automatically excluded due to 5/24, the in-branch Business Rep can submit the application by Mail on your behalf (this avoids the application going through the computer check that would automatically exclude those who are already at 5/24.) First year's annual fee is not waived.

October 2018: 100,000 points offer is no longer available. Best offer is 80,000 points after $5,000 in first 90 days.

July 2017: Some members may have a referral link and would be very grateful if you would use it. See this thread: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/credi...ost-first.html

1) Should I apply using the link above or go to a nearby brick and mortar branch?
Sometimes there are better offers to be had in the branch (as referenced above). Some in-branch apps had/have the $95 AF waived 1st yr (ymmv). You can also have your banker check to see if you are pre-approved for this card (green screen on the banker's log in). However, it is likely simpler/easier to do a Chase business credit application Online as applying in-branch often requires providing documentation (proof of business, etc).
2) How do the rewards differ from other INK cards?
The bonus categories on this card are different than other cards in the INK family, notably, this card does NOT get a bonus at Office Supply stores, but DOES get the following:

3 Points per $1 on the first $150,000 spent in combined purchases in the following categories each account anniversary year:

- Travel; including airfare, hotels, rental cars, train tickets, and taxis
- Shipping purchases
- Internet, cable and phone services
- Advertising purchases made with social media sites and search engines

- 1 Point per $1 on all other purchases (with no limits on the number of points you can earn).

Also, notably, it follows the Sapphire Preferred personal card in offering a bonus when using points to book travel using the Ultimate Rewards web site: Points are worth 25% more when you redeem for travel through Chase Ultimate Rewards®. For example, 80,000 points are worth $1,000 towards travel.*

See discussion on using the UR portal, here: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/chase...ts-2017-a.html
3) What are the insurance and other benefits provided by this card?
The Benefits Guide is here: https://www.chasebenefits.com/inkpreferred
4) Can I product change from a different INK Card?
Since this card is newly released, options may change in the future, but, at this time, Chase is not permitting product change to Ink Preferred at this time (reported on 11/23/16).

Don't think so. The card just hit its one year mark...very few DPs. See this thread: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/chas...e-reserve.html

Is there any reference link for 100K for this card? Instead of 80K, I would like to find one for 100K. I saw some discussion about some referrals being able to give extra 20K on top of the publicly available 80K. Is that still available? if so, I am happy to find one

I have the Chase ink business preferred (just received it about 3 weeks ago). Is there a bonus available for adding an authorized user who does a purchase(s)? Thanks

Do I have to input the last 4 digits on all of my Chase cards to see if a referral is available? Thanks

Send me a PM and I'll get you the info for a BRM who can get you a 100k CIP bonus (that bypasses 5/24, if needed).

"Advertising purchases made with social media sites and search engines"

Why doesn't a LinkedIn premium membership give me 3x points on this card? It is a paid "advertisement" of my business/resume on a "social media site", right?

No, it's a membership.

Technically, but the purpose of the membership is to generate exposure and leads, which is a form of advertising. Seems like a very stingy distinction to be excluded.

Category bonuses are based on the merchant classification, not on the specific product or service that you happen to buy.

Would it be correct to assume that my ink business plus offers the best electronics protection for a phone / drone purchase? Other cards I have are the CSR, Prestige, and Plat. I'd primarily be interested in the loss,damage, and extended warranty protection.

Secondarily, would loss/damage/theft protection cover items purchased outside of the US?

Thanks!

In branch only, through a Business Relationship Manager.

Do you need a certain level of assets with Chase to qualify? Or do you have to have your business checking acct with Chase?

Anyone having success getting 100K bonus with this method recently and what other Chase products do you carry?

Doesn't seem so.

Plenty of DPs on r/churning of people using this method with no other Chase relationship, though it seems very dependent upon getting a knowledgeable and cooperative BRM. (Some reports that a BRM paper app can even bypass 5/24.)
