In late April we wrote a post regarding a rumor that Chase would be offering increased bonuses of 100,000 points on the Chase Ink Preferred and $500 on the Chase Ink Cash card for small business week. Chase then reached out and told us that “[N]o new Ink offers for National Small Business Week” and it looked like our original sources had been confusing this with the ongoing promotions available for business relationship managed customers (these are due to end on 8/27/17).
Then Angelina Travels posted that one of her readers was able to see the 100,000 point/$500 cash offers in branch. They received this flyer:
Apparently this person was a Chase Private Client and applied with a business relationship manager. Gary at View From The Wing also had a similar post with a reader being able to get the increased offer, I suspect they also applied with a business relationship manager. Reddit user bbrown3979 was also able to find this offer in branch, they didn’t speak to a business relationship manager but the branch did have one.
So it looks like there isn’t a new offer at all, if you go to a branch that has a business relationship manager and apply with them (this isn’t new) you might be able to get the increased offers otherwise everything is just business as normal. I think the confusion around this is really due to the national small business week branding, but they also have that same branding on the regular $300/80,000 point offers.
If you do go in branch hunting for this offer, keep in mind the $300 checking & $200 savings bonus currently available as well. Also don’t forget if you’re going to apply for the regular 80,000 point offer to use a readers referral link!
