Chase Ink® Business Credit Cards Increase Signup Bonuses
Just as it did last year, Chase is temporarily increasing the signup bonuses on its Ink business credit cards in anticipation of National Small Business Week. Under this promo, both the Chase Ink Bold and the Chase Ink Plus are offering 60,000 bonus points when you spend $5,000 within the first 3 months of opening your account. That’s up from the normal 50,000 points that are offered. In addition, the Chase Ink Cash card is offering $300 cash back when you spend $3,000 in your first 3 months of cardmembership. That’s also up from the $250 cash back that is normally offered.
Both the Chase Ink Bold and Chase Ink Plus carry an annual fee of $95, which is waived for the first year. They also do not charge any foreign transaction fees. Both cards earn 5x points per $1 on the first $50,000 spent annually at office supply stores, and on cellular phone, landline, internet, and cable TV services. In addition, the Chase Ink Plus card earns 2x points per $1 on the first $50,000 spent annually at gas stations and for hotel accommodations when purchased directly with the hotel. The other key distinction between these two cards is that the Bold is a charge card, which requires balances to be paid in full every month, while the Plus card is a credit card.
The Chase Ink Cash is the cash rebate version of the card. It has no annual fee and earns 5% cash back on the first $25,000 spent annually at office supply stores, and on cellular phone, landline, internet, and cable TV services, 2% cash back on the first $25,000 spent annually at gas stations and restaurants and 1% cash back on all other card purchases with no limit to the amount you can earn.

Update 5/20/14: These increased signup offers are due to expire on June 1, 2014.
Note: If you recently applied for any of these offers with a smaller bonus, Chase is usually very good about matching current offers. You can log into your account and send a secure message, telling them that you saw the current small business week offer and ask if it can be matched. Usually if you have applied for the same card within the past 90 days, Chase will credit you the difference.
