It looks as if Chase is targeting holders of select Ink business credit cards for a nice bonus points offer that’s similar to an offer that we saw published earlier this year. If you hold a Chase Ink Business card, check your emails or read on to see how to check if you’ve been targeted.
Targeted cardholders are getting emails with the subject line “[your name] we’re excited to offer you extra points on your business expenses” which goes on to say the following:
“Earn an extra 5,000 bonus points for every $5,000 you spend—up to 15,000 bonus points—on all business purchases made with your Chase Ink® card between December 1, 2022 and February 28, 2023.”*
You need to activate this offer before you can earn the bonus points, but if you haven’t received the email with the activation button, you can check to see if your Ink business card has been targeted by visiting this webpage and filling in your details.
*If you have an Ink cash back card, your offer may refer to $50 cash back up to a total of $150 cash back.
- To be eligible for this bonus offer, you must activate by 02/28/23 11:59 p.m. E.T.
- You will qualify for and receive your bonus if you make Purchases with your credit card that total an amount at or above the specified target amount during the promotional period.
- Purchases posted to your account with a transaction date during the offer period are eligible for this offer.
- Please allow up to 8 weeks after qualifying for bonus points to post to your account.
- Eligible purchases do not include balance transfers, cash advances, travelers checks, foreign currency, money orders, wire transfers or similar cash-like transactions, lottery tickets, casino gaming chips, race track wagers or similar betting transactions, any checks that access your account, interest, unauthorized or fraudulent charges, and fees of any kind, including an annual fee, if applicable.
- The bonus can be earned 3 times during the promotional period for a total maximum bonus point accumulation of 15,000 bonus points.
- Eligible credit cards: Chase Ink Business Preferred Card, Chase Ink Business Cash Card, Chase Ink Business Unlimited Card, Chase Ink Cash Card, or Chase Ink Plus Card.
Full terms and conditions can be found on the offer page.
I’ve had this offer targeted to my legacy Ink Business Plus account (not open to new applicants) but not to my Ink Business Preferred® credit card and that’s a little disappointing as I have a LOT of spending that’s about to go on my Preferred card.
Still, I love a bonus points offer from Chase as much as the next person so I’ll be registering and watching for opportunities to stack this offer with the bonus points that my Plus card already offers me (I see a visit to an office supply store in my future!)
As I value Ultimate Rewards Points at 1.5 cents each (based on the value that I know I can get out of them with relative ease), this promotion is offering me an effective rebate of up to $225 on $15,000 of spending. And while that probably doesn’t seem like much, as long as I don’t spend any cash that I wasn’t going to spend anyway, that’s good enough for me.
In truth, the cash value of the points is just a guide for me so right now and I’m really viewing this promotion in terms of the World of Hyatt points that it can earn me (15,000 UR points = 15,000 Hyatt points), and that’s making it tempting to try to max this deal out.
15,000 points will pay for one night of a stay that I have planned at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego next summer and as the most expensive night of that stay costs over $400 (including taxes), that’s a night that I’d love not to have to pay for 🙂
If you hold one of Chase’s Ink Business cards, head over to the chase.com/mybonus page and input your details to check to see if you’ve been targeted for a spending offer. All Ink cards appear to be eligible (even if they’re no longer open to new applicants) so there should be quite a few readers that have been targeted.
