Ink Plus 70K

On the heels of its blockbuster new personal card, the Chase Sapphire Reserve, Chase has introduced a new business card — the Chase Ink Business Preferred.  According to an article in Bloomberg, the new card will roll out “later this year”.  That means soon. As we previously reported, the new card will offer an 80K signup bonus, and 3X Ultimate Rewards points for travel, telecommunications, shipping and advertising on social-media and search engines.

The Dining Everywhere Visa. Is 5X or 2.65X worth the headache?

Dining Everywhere Visa

A new Visa gift card has appeared in many Office Depot stores: the Dining Everywhere Visa.  On the surface this card appears to be limited to use in restaurants and bars, but Travelling Well for Less has found that it seems to work pretty much anywhere.  And, the card’s cardholder agreement does not say that the card is limited to restaurants and bars, so I think that it’s safe to assume that the card’s use…

Ink Plus success with Chase’s Special Consideration form

Over a month ago, I applied for a targeted United Mileage Plus 75K offer and an Ink Plus 60K offer.  Both applications were initially pending.  After calling the personal and business recon lines to request immediate decisions, the United card was approved, but the Ink card was denied.  I called again about the Ink card and my application was re-opened and submitted for further review.  I was promised a decision within 2 weeks, but in…

United 75K

When a targeted 70K United MileagePlus offer first appeared, I logged into my United account but was disappointed to find that I wasn’t targeted. Then, a better targeted offer appeared with the addition of a $50 statement credit after first purchase.  Happily, I was targeted for that one. I checked the spreadsheet I use for tracking credit card applications.  I last signed up for the United card in March, 2013.  Since signup bonuses are usually…

Chasing 395,000 points

Chasing 395,000 points

In January, I recommended applying for Chase Ink cards before March (see: Credit card junkies: it’s time to apply for Chase Ink).  And, in February, I suggested applying for Chase co-branded cards before April (see: Chase calls an end to the game. Should we seek quick wins or long term benefits?).  Both recommendations were driven by the dreaded 5/24 rule… Chase’s 5/24 rule In the past year or so, Chase has frequently denied applications for…
