[Targeted] Chase INK Preferred 100,000 Points Signup Bonus

The Offer

Link to terms (remember, this is a targeted offer)

While Chase has not made any public signup bonus increase on their business credit cards for Small Business Week, they are now sending out targeted emails with a higher offer on the INK Preferred card:

  • Get 100,000 Ultimate Rewards points when signing up for the Chase INK Preferred business card and spending $5,000 within three months

The offer is valid through June 3, 2017, and the application needs to be done through the targeted email link.

Card Details

Chase INK Preferred main post

  • $95 annual fee, not waived the first year
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Points Are Worth 25% More In Travel Rewards (won’t matter if you have CSR which gets 50%)
  • Primary rental car insurance
  • Cell phone insurance

This card earns at the following rates per $1 spent:

  • 3x points per $1 spent on the first $150,000 in combined purchases on travel, shipping purchases, internet, cable and phone services, advertising purchases made with social media sites and search engines each account anniversary year
  • 1x points on all other purchases

Our Verdict

Seems like this email is being sent out to select Chase business cardholders, specifically those who hold another version of the INK card like INK Plus.

The bonus is excellent and worthwhile, though it’s not entirely groundbreaking for a lot of people being that referral bonuses are up to 20k now, and if you have a friend/family with a referral you’ll end up, collectively, with the same 100k with the 80k + 20k. Still obviously a great deal to have the 100k targeted link.

Most of us won’t be eligible for this card to 5/24, in any case (5/24 wouldn’t be waived for this kind of targeted offer). Also check out these Things to Know about Chase before applying.

If you recently applied for the the INK Preferred at the lower 80k bonus, send Chase an SM and they should match it for you, but only if you were targeted for this 100k offer (they might have to research to affirm that), you can’t match if you were targeted.

I have only seen one report on Reddit about this, are there others? In other words, is it true?

Yep! I received the email this morning. Current Ink Plus cardholder. Too bad it doesn’t bypass 5/24

Seems like a few ppl are targetted but the whole $1000 toward travel rewards kinda makes it feel like someone faked it. who knows.

One important comment on benefits for Ink Preferred – specifically Primary Car Rental protection.

The car rental protection is primary on this card ONLY if you rent a car for the business. If you rent it for personal use – this protection becomes secondary – excess to your other personal car insurance. Very important, as many of us would rent a car for ourselves… Either use Sapphire cards for personal rentals, or make sure to make the rental business related.

As a side note – trip cancellation/interruption insurance in its turn is going to work the same whether you are on a personal vacation or business trip. It will cover you the same way.

Good luck
