In honor of Small Business Week, Chase has increased the sign up bonuses on two of its popular business credit cards by 10,000 UR Points each!  Keep in mind, that you do not need to have an officially registered business to obtain these cards.  If you sell items on eBay, mow lawns, do handyman work, or even write a blog, you can qualify for a business credit card.

Simply fill out the application using your social security number instead of the tax ID or employer ID number.  Make up a name for your business, and assign an appropriate level of income.  These cards can be very lucrative, and the limited time bonuses are only offered until 5/25/15!

Chase Ink Cash – No annual fee business card

  • 30,000 Ultimate Rewards (UR) point sign-up bonus if you spend $3,000 in the first 3 months
  • 5pts per dollar on first $25,000 annually in office supplies, cable, and phone services
  • 2pts per dollar on first $25,000 annually in gas and restaurants
  • 1pt per dollar on everything else
  • NO annual fee

Both of these cards provide excellent value to the small business owner.  I love the ability to transfer UR Points to 13 travel partners on a 1:1 basis.  This is a benefit of the Ink Plus and the Sapphire Preferred cards.  If you choose only to apply for the Ink Cash as a business card, you will need the Sapphire Preferred for the ability to transfer your points.  Otherwise, they can be redeemed for cash at a rate of 1 cent per point.  I value Chase UR Points at slightly over 2 cents per point given the flexibility they offer.
