There have been many reports online and via DM/PM to me of people saying they’ve been approved for the new Chase Ink Business Preferred® Credit Card bonus offer for 100,000 bonus Ultimate Rewards points when you spend $8,000 in 3 months, down from the old $15,000 minimum spend requirement, while being over 5/24.
Of course, 5/24 refers to having opened 5 or more personal credit cards in the past 24 months, in which case Chase won’t approve you for most credit cards, though Chase has notably made some other exceptions to the 5/24 rule in the last year, allowing some co-branded cards to bypass is.
We’d also previously heard of some people getting approved for the Chase Ink Business Cash® Credit Card and the Chase Ink Business Unlimited® Credit Card during the last big bonus offer for 90,000 points, which has since ended.
And don’t forget that you don’t need a traditional business to apply. Side hustle income counts as long as you know how to apply for a business credit card as a sole proprietor in the right way.
All of that said, with people reporting success at getting approved for the Ink Preferred 100,000 point bonus offer while at or over 5/24, so, if you want to give it a try, will you please be so kind as to comment as to your success or failure?
You can either be the data point you want to see, or, well…. I guess you can wait for data points 😉
