I receive compensation for many links on this blog. You don’t have to use these links, but I am grateful to you if you do. American Express, Citibank, Chase, Capital One and other banks are advertising partners of this site. Any opinions expressed in this post are my own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by my advertising partners. I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).
I do not have a referral link for the Chase Ink Plus Business Card. Information about the product is not provided or reviewed by its issuer.
Last week there was a rumor that Chase would be removing 5 points per dollar earning on its Ink small business cards, but grandfathering in existing cardholders.
- 80,000-point signing bonus after $5000 spend within 3 months
- 3 points a dollar on the first $150,000 spend on “travel, telecommunications, shipping and advertising on social-media and search engines.”
- $0 annual fee the first year, then $95 when applying in-branch (Update: in-branch $0 fee the first year no longer available.)
That’s a strong signup bonus and I like the expanded triple points earning.
It’s not confirmed at this point whether changes will come to existing Ink cards, or whether those will be discontinued.
It seems highly unlikely to me that they would product change a no annual fee card to one with an annual fee. And if they did there would have to be plenty of advance notice.
In contrast, since the annual fees are projected to be the same, it’s easier to product change Ink Plus to this new card if they decided to go that route.
Since I have a Chase Sapphire Preferred Card, I don’t need the Ink Plus which carries an annual fee.
