You're all dreaming.

indeed one can get the mastercard and visa versions of both the ink bold and the ink plus... that gets you $200k potential spend

then there is the ink cash... which has 5x up to $25k spend... mc and visa gets you to $250k

and ink classic etc....

that's a lot of ultimate rewards

problem is you'd spend so much time chasing the points you'd never actually have time to redeem any

i meant plus in my first sentence. my bad. either way there are plenty of incarnations of the card. and yes if you redeem for cash equivalents it's great. i am looking for travel, and with only four weeks of vacation time a year, there is an upper bound on redemptions!

Yes, there is.

Go to the Visa website and you can find Ink Visa cards, and if you go to the MasterCard website you can find Sapphire MasterCards.

I don't know why Chase doesn't promote both versions on their own website.
