Chase has done a ton of branding of itself as very small business-friendly, through offering testimony and advice from business leaders and offering mobile apps for managing expenses in addition to very generous rewards (including targeted bonus categories that match business expense categories like telecommunications and office supplies).

So it’s not surprising that they’re making a big push with offers for ‘small business week’.

Here’s the hint they’re dropping:

Now, we don’t know what “additional cash rewards or bonus points when you apply for any Ink Business Card” will mean. But I have to assume that additional means bigger than usual. The current standard bonus for the Ink Bold and Ink Plus cards is 50,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after $5000 spend within 3 months. So “additional” must mean more than 50,000. At least that’s how I would interpret it.

The timeframe for whatever the offer will be — so we’ll know in just a few days — is “between June 16th – June 22nd.”

No card links in this post, given this new information I’d say it can’t wait to pay attention and plan to apply next week.

    Ouch, just applied and was approved a couple of weeks ago. What’s the likelihood that they would match?

    I was planning to wait until July 1 for my next batch of applications, but if this is significant I might have to push it up.

    I just hope US Bank approves me for the Club Carlson card. June 20 would put me at 5 inquiries in the past year, but none in the past 6 months.

    I am a slavish follower of your advice. And although savvy about some aspects of FF, I don’t understand how to combine different miles/points from 3 different airlines (even) when they belong to the same Group–as, for example, United, Lufthansa, Alaska Airlines. Can you help?
    Many thanks.

    Is this something that has happened in the past? Or is this a brand new marketing technique? Just wondering because I’d like to know what the increase was in the past if it had been done.

    Dumb and Dumber

    There is a thread on FlyerTalk where a couple of posters have already contacted Chase about matching the offer for their Ink cards….despite the fact that the promo hasn’t been released, and nobody actually knows what the terms will be.
