[Rumor] Chase to Offer INK Preferred 100,000 Points Signup Bonus for Small Business Week
Chase runs an annual Small Business Week in late April – early May, and this year’s National Small Business Week runs from April 29 – May 5 with Chase as one of the sponsors. It’s a time when there may be increased bonuses on Chase small business credit cards.
Back in 2016, they ran a 70,000 points bonus (with fee waived) on the INK Plus and a $300 bonus on INK Cash. Then in 2017 there were rumors of 100,000 bonus on the Preferred and $500 on Cash, though not much ended up coming of that.
The bank has a regular 100k offer on the Preferred card for those with businesses which have revenues of more than $1M annually who apply with a Business Relationship Manager. Reddit member chanu99 was told my their banker that during Small Business Week the 100k offer would become available for everyone in-branch.
Chase is currently offering their best-ever offer on the INK Cash card with a $500 online signup bonus, so not much chance of an increase there. Hopefully the 100k Preferred in-branch offer will materialize during small business week. Maybe we’ll even get lucky with an online 100k bonus at that Special Offers link mentioned.
All these offers will still be subject to the 5/24 rule, as well as the ongoing added scrutiny Chase applies to new card applicants, which will knock off most of us from being able to take advantage of these offers.
