I apologize for all the Chase Ink Bold/Plus coverage lately, Chase just has a thing for me. In today’s mail, they sent me a targeted letter to sign up for the Chase Ink Plus Business Credit Card (currently I have 2 Ink Bold cards only). The offer is identical to the currently available bank offer of 70,000 Chase Ultimate Reward Points offer after spending $5,000 in 3 months. The $95 annual fee is not waived for this offer.
From the back of the letter, there is a way to apply for this offer online, but you need a specific invitation number to access the application. The application number has my home address attached to it, so I cannot share it unfortunately. According to the offer, I have until September 15 to apply, so it looks like this offer (hopefully public soon) will be around until September 15. You should see a sign up link come online soon.
In other credit card news, US Bank is following in the footsteps of Chase and American Express by offering referral bonuses for referring your friends and family members to sign up for a US Bank FlexPerks credit card. The offer is pretty low tech. Your friends and family member need to enter your FlexPerks number on their application and you will receive 5,000 bonus FlexPerks. Since 20,000 FlexPerks = $400 in travel, this referral is essentially worth up to $100, not too shabby. If you are interested, please click here. If you are interested in using my referral link, please enter FlexPerks number 400005503422. If you do apply, I greatly appreciate your support.

There are 2 personal FlexPerks offers and 1 business FlexPerks offer. Please note, if you do not qualify for the FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature Credit Card, you will be automatically considered for the lesser FlexPerks Select Rewards Visa Credit Card. The sign up bonus and the bonus categories differ. Also, the business FlexPerks credit card has different 2x categories than the personal FlexPerks credit card. You will get 2x on gas, office supplies, and airline purchases. You can combine FlexPerks into one account, so it might be a good idea to go for a personal and business credit card (if not just for the sign up bonus).
I was unaware that you could register multiple business credit cards to the same Visa Savings Edge account, but it looks like you can (obviously). That saved me a few minutes from creating separate accounts for my Chase Ink Bold authorized user cards. If you are unfamiliar with Visa Savings Edge, please read What is Visa Savings Edge?
Let me leave you with a sweet treat. $10 statement credit for dining at Cheesecake Factory.
