Chase have upped their usual offer of 50K. Now you can receive 60K Chase UR points when you apply for a Chase Ink Plus card and spend $5,000 or more within the first three months. These has been a 70K point offer before as well, but this is also worth it. Remember that this is a business card, so it would be best to open it with a DBA at least or any other business.
There is a $95 annual fee on the card, and this time it’s not being waived automatically for the first year. You can apply online or at a branch, but it has been possible in the past to get the fee waived in-branch. If they don’t waive it, you might want to try out another branch. There’s been reports on both sides.
You can also apply for the regular 50K offer online (my referral link), which has the fee waived for the first year and then ask Chase to be matched for the 60K offer. This way you don’t have to go from bank to bank trying to get the fee waived. This method is not full proof either, but Chase has been known to match offers.
The 60K UR points are advertised as $750 cash but you can easily get much more value out of them. Also you might get an extra 25K UR points if you do the $5K spending requirement at a 5X qualifying merchant such as Office Depot or Staples.
