in Chase, Thursday Giveaway

The big news today from Chase was that all its Ink cards for small businesses, including the Ink Plus and Ink Bold as well as the Ink Cash and Ink Classic, will now be Visa Signatures.

The Ink Plus and Ink Bold will now be Visa Signature cards.

The Ink Plus and Ink Bold will now be Visa Signature cards.

While those of us who have had any of these cards for a while now will keep the World MasterCard versions of them until they expire, all new Ink cardholders will receive Visa Signatures. For the most part, I don’t see this as a major upheaval since many of the value-added travel benefits such as trip cancellation insurance, travel accident insurance, car rental insurance and purchase and warranty protections are pretty much equivalent between World MasterCard and Visa Signature. However, there are some unique Visa Signature benefits like Visa Signature Hotels and the network’s partnership with Sonoma Wineries, which are great side benefits.

And the Ink cards will maintain all those other benefits and perks that make them such potentially lucrative travel credit cards including earning 5X points at office supply stores and on telecommunication expenses, 2X on hotel and gas purchases, no foreign exchange fees (on the Plus and Bold) and more.

So for today’s Thursday Giveaway, I wanted to keep it simple and ask you what your favorite benefit of the Chase Ink Plus or Ink Bold cards is – and the winner will get 10,000 Ultimate Rewards points transferred to their travel partner of choice.

I ask about those cards specifically because their annual cap on the bonus spending categories is higher, they waive foreign transaction fees, and because they are the premium Ultimate Rewards cards for businesses, they allow cardholders to transfer their Ultimate Rewards points to any of the program’s 10 transfer partner airlines, hotels and Amtrak.

But hey, I don’t want to list my favorite perks, I want to hear yours!

Ultimate Rewards' airline partners include 5 great carriers.

Are the Ultimate Rewards transfer partners your favorite thing about the cards?

How to Enter

It’s simple – just leave a comment below telling me which of the perks of the Ink Bold and/or Ink Plus is your favorite and why. It can be anything from being able to transfer to United for a first class Lufthansa redemption, to racking up tons of bonus points at Staples. Whatever it is, I want to hear it and I want to know why it’s your favorite perk.

You have until 5pm ET on Sunday, September 15, to enter. Then Team TPG will choose a winner at random and announce it on Monday. The winner can then designate the travel transfer partner of choice for the 10,000 Ultimate Rewards points prize.

    I used my Chase Ink card to buy a new computer and got 6,000+ points
    thanks to the 5x bonus, more than enough to fly one way from DC to east
    coast destinations on Southwest. I also love that I was able to transfer
    the 50k sign up bonus points to Southwest, where I have a companion
    pass, essentially doubling the value of the points (a perk I also
    learned about from The Points Guy!). If I’m picked for the 10,000
    points, I will celebrate my 30th bday (which is Sept 15th) by treating
    myself and my companion to a free roundtrip flight to Portland, ME!

  • Angela

    I love transferring to United and redeeming flights with Star Alliance partners with low taxes/fees (generally)

  • Rob

    5X on GCs are the best feature by far, especially since I value UR @f7f0ae1355c79649ad7d42ac67179ab0:disqus around 2.2 cents each.

  • Mike R

    I convinced my father to get this card for our business. He has the Sapphire and Sapphire Preferred and recently paid for a whole vacation using miles he had accumulated on those cards. I explained to him that with the Ink cards you can earn 5x the points on our office supply purchases, 5x points on cable/internet/phone, and 2x points on gas purchases and hotels, plus get the 50k bonus simply for using the credit card for purchases he already makes. When I said he could pretty much use the points to finance a trip each year, he jumped all over it!

    I love the ability to transfer points quickly to Southwest to use with our companion pass

  • Ernest S.

    Love the 5X bonus categories. Not only do I get a large chunk of points from my wireless phone and internet bill, but I also “treat” myself every month to a $100 gift card from Amazon. I find that it only only maximizes my points, but also keeps me from overspending at Amazon.

  • Mark Rota

    Since I have had the SPG AMEX for years, I love the fact that you can transfer miles to UAL at par. (As you know the SPG card transfers at 2 gets you one rate.) This card is a perfect match for the SPG AMEX.

  • Sapan Shah

    definitely 5X bonus category

  • Brian

    Transferring to UA! Awesome deal!

  • egwg

    Ink Bold/Plus is great for earning ultimate rewards points bc of the program’s flexible transfers.

  • dasman

    While 5X points @ office stores has to be what most ppl love about this card, my opinion is that the best feature is the numerous INK card options available. It enable numerous multi-browser sign-up bonuses to be transacted simultaneously. I combine that with BlueBird and I meet every spending threshold in a single month.
    Apply, Charge, Deposit and say thank you! (the real thanks goes to TPG for showing us all how to get the deal done!)

  • Mark

    5x on office supply stores

  • Ray

    Favorite is 5x on office stores. Buying everything at Staples!!!

  • Shawn

    The two free Lounge Club visits and no foreign transaction fee are the best benefits!

  • Docklander

    For me it’s the ability to transfer over to Hyatt. Sure, the transfers to UA are good but there are lots of good ways to get airline miles but getting good quality hotel points (if you’re not racking up stays via business) is much harder. I’m part way to earning enough points to take my partner to the Maldives on a holiday of a lifetime (she doesnt know about this!) and there’s no way we’d be able to afford such an amazing place without the Ink 5x categories and the option to transfer to Hyatt.

    It’s gotta be 1:1 with Hyatt points. I would love to use those UR points to help cash in on a rewards night at the Andaz Maui for my honeymoon next April

  • william goozdich

    5x points at office supply stores!

  • Kira Cao

    My favorite perk is the ability to instantly transfer to United Airlines, where I have more points than other airline accounts. I can use those points to book better seats for my parents, both of whom are more than 65 years old.

  • Gerry

    With a new home this year, we buy a LOT on Amazon. Thanks to Chase’s Ink cards, we’re going to Park City Utah to ski over Valentine’s Day, courtesy of 5x on gift cards bought at Staples.

  • JG

    Flexible points transfers and no FOREX fees!

  • Matt

    5x at office supply stores is my favorite, but can’t beat the transfer partners!

  • Spencer W.

    Definitely the 5x telecom–makes it worth the annual fee right there–plus a whole bunch of points for United flights or the occasional Southwest redemption.

  • Jonathan

    Love being able to transfer points to UA for redemptions on TG to BKK in F.

  • HNM

    Tie: the introductory bonus points and the ability to transfer points to United MileagePlus.

    Has to be 5x on office & telecommunications

    The ability to transfer to United is my favorite perk

  • WJB

    Being able to transfer to Hyatt and use for nights in Paris and London!

  • boxedlunch

    It’s the 5% on all of my office supply and telecom purchases…offsets the annual fee easily.

  • Ally

    My favorite part of the Ink? Exploring Guatemala last month: swimming in Lake Atitlan, watching volcanic steam rising from the top of Mount Pacaya, and walking the cobblestone streets of the ancient city of Antigua; and not having to spend big bucks to manage it all. Earning enough points for free airfare is a pretty nice perk!

  • Adriano Gomes

    It has to be the 5x points that we as Mileage enthusiasts know how to take advantage of it very well =D

  • Richard Shin

    I love 5x bonus points on internet/cable/cell phone charges on my Ink Bold card! Also, no foreign transaction fee is a plus!! :)

  • Jeremy Spencer

    5x points on paying phone and wireless!

    no foreign transaction fees and transfer partners are great, but you can’t beat the 5x points benefits for the specified bonus places.

  • Earl

    The 5% bonus on office supply stores is my favorite benefit.

  • Andrew

    the ability to transfer to multiple airline partners and 5x bonus catagories!

  • BeachMiles

    5X at office supply is Great.

  • Jake J.

    Getting 5X pts on monthly bills like TV, Electric & Internet where I was only getting 1pt before. Gets me closer to a biz class redemption to South Africa.

  • tshark42

    My favorite perk of both cards is simply the flexibility. With so many transfer partners, it makes the points that much more valuable to me instead of being always tied to one program.

  • chawk866

    My favorite perk of the Ink Plus is transfers to Hyatt!

  • Ramsey

    The ability to transfer points to United for *Alliance flights in Biz class to Africa.

  • Ron Tongbai

    being able to buy amazon gift cards at staples for 5% off

    Clearly the 5x rewards on certain categories

  • aptsguy

    5x purchases at staples!

    With flights to Ireland every month or two to visit my girlfriend, the ability to transfer to British Airways is great. With Aer Lingus as a BA partner and 5x points on the Ink Plus, the flights become very affordable and feasible!

    I like the ability to transfer to multiple programs. Thanks

  • The Points Master

    Being able to get five times the points at office supply stores.

    Being able to transfer to UA for long haul F and to avios for short haul awards for only 4,500 miles.

  • Tara Buss

    i love the no foreign transaction fees!

  • Nathan E

    My favorite benefit was the phone number given to me by the cute teller when I used my Business Ink Bold card at my local Chase bank. She really thought I was a big time business owner and didn’t realize that I got the card only for the 60,000 miles.

  • Tim Howell

    I love the 5x points on internet and phone service because I get about 1000 points per month without thinking.

  • lelumpolelum

    5 points in Office Depot & Staples on giftcards to stores and restaurants

  • Emily D

    The 60,000 bonus was the reason I first signed up, but because of the 5x miles at office supply stores I have started shopping at 3 of them almost weekly and pay a lot more attention to their ads.

  • Abby B.

    I love being able to combine the ink points with the personal chase card reward programs (freedom and sapphire preferred) because I can pick and choose which card to use to maximize points on any given purchase, and then combine the points from all cards to redeem…If you have all three cards you can get multiple points on almost anything!

  • Joanna

    5x bonus points at office supply stores, for sure – love being able to get giftcards there!

  • Elijah Nouvelage

    It’s hard to choose just one, but I guess it would have to be the 2x on gas. My Ink card is my go-to card for gas when it isn’t in the Freedom card’s quarterly bonus category.

  • Julie Smith

    5 points per dollar on my cable, internet and cell phone, all year long!

  • OberBoberGrober

    I like the 5x on telecom and office supply stores.

  • Namaste-Duniya

    Ability to make transfers instantaneously to most partners. You can have all the points in the world but if you can’t move them in time then they’re no use. Love UR points earned through Chase Ink Plus and Ink Bold.

  • Rebecca Duvall

    Ultimate rewards mall!

  • Sonny

    Definitely the 5x bonuses they run and the fact I can use the card without foreign transaction fees when I travel abroad!

  • Eric P

    The 5x office category bonus! Along with the signup bonuses, it helped me earn enough points for 8 nights (two rooms for 4 nights) at the Park Hyatt Paris Vendome this fall!

  • Timothyprice

    I love the 5 times on office supplies and cell phone purchases!

  • dundili

    Love the 5X at office supply stores and 10X at Kohls through the ultimaterewards website!

    5x points in those categories like office and telecom is awesome!

  • Mt

    I really like the look of the card. Earning 5x at office supply stores is terrific.

  • JHL

    Most valuable perk is the transferrable Ultimate Rewards Points. I will be going on a trip to Asia in a month and half, stopping at 4 different countries. Half of my flight will be on Business Class and other half will be on First Class. Those include flight on Asiana’s OZ Quadra Smartium and Kosomo Suite on Korean Air’s A380 flight. I could not have booked those flights without transferring Ultimate Rewards points to United and Korean Air.

  • sammy

    Hyatt all the way baby :) 5x helps with that. Matter of fact just transfered few earlier today. Love Ink
    and my 1st post here…long time follower

    ability to transfer to United and Hyatt

  • Carrie

    Definitely the transfer partners!! LOOOOOOOVE Hyatt!!

    5x points at office supply

    I love 5x at staples. Just came back from an awesome trip to the south of France where I spent 4 nights in Hyatt hotels all with points earned on my ink.

  • Elteetrav

    Ultimate rewards with instant transfer to Hyatt and other fabulous travel partners. Thanks to Ultimate Rewards (and you) I’m sending you this massage from the Hyatt at Waikiki.

  • schmerj

    I love that there’s no foreign transaction fee…

  • Ben

    Love the sign up bonus!

  • gxc949

    The 5x bonus on the category spend the most on; cable/internet

  • Lea

    Amazon gift cards at Staples (5x) and instant Hyatt transfers.

  • Senthil Ramasamy

    Office supply 5x is the most rewarding offer from ink bold for me.

  • Matt S

    Sign up bonuses and 5x are great benefits

  • Nick

    I am a fan of the great point transfer options from Ultimate Rewards!

  • hc

    I love using the Ultimate Rewards Shopping Mall. They often have higher point bonuses than the airline and hotel point shopping malls. A couple years ago thanks to TPG I found out about their temporary 10X point bonus on and was able to rack up a ton of points buying my Ipad!

  • Ed

    5x on giftcard!!! Im addicted to it. I even ask others to give cash and i go buy gift card for them.

  • lycidas1

    Earning UR points for short-haul trips around OZ (using Avios) or flying back home to the US (with MileagePlus miles). AND the spending isn’t factored into my credit score calculation!

  • Magua

    No foreign transaction fees. I make a lot of trips to Ghana and partly due to the instability in the currency and information asymmetry, getting good exchange rates for dollars is a shot in the dark. The ability to use the cards which by the way give excellent exchange rates is a blessing

  • Yaokai Jiang

    5x in office depot lol. gift cards are your friend

  • 9 UP HK

    Ink Plus as no foreign transaction fees means I can save 2-3% for foreign transaction.

  • G. Roger

    transfer points & voila topped up tank on miles

  • Dustin

    5x bonus is my favorite, just between the cell phone bill and directv, i get an extra 1000 or so points a month, which helps a lot

  • Benny

    Racking up points while not being charged foreign transaction fees

  • CollegeKid

    The reason this card is great is not due to its sole existence.

    Chase Ink
    Chase Sapphire Preferred
    Chase Freedom

    The combination of the cards above is surely a force to be considered with.

    For a college student like me who occasionally travels, the combination of these cards just about covers all my categories of spending rather well.

    Currently waiting for another 60K+ sign-up to come around to pull the trigger and complete what in my opinion is the perfect credit card setup.

  • Bender

    I love how easily the Bold allows me to rack up points; mostly due to 5x on telecom and 2x on gas. Plus I can focus more on one card with this rather than swapping in other cards for similar category bonuses.

  • DK

    Two Free Lounge access a year.

  • Mark R.

    5x Staples to rack up points!

  • MaxC

    Lufthansa first class via Nited

  • Annette

    5x bonuses are great!

  • Chris Duck

    Easily for me, it’s the flexibility of having great transfer partners, at fair transfer rates. United and Hyatt, I’m looking at you

  • Jimmy

    Can’t beat the 5% back at office and telecom!

  • creed thoughts

    5x points on office spending!

  • P K

    Double Bonus (read: but not limited to!) – Travel the world without foreign transaction fee and 5X rewards on Office supply stores. Said.

  • Toby

    5x at office stores = free 250k UR points per year for me

  • Milo Minderbinder

    I like the 2x gas rewards and the UA transfer.

  • David

    5x bonus is my favorite, just between the cell phone bill and Fios, i
    get an extra 1000 or so points a month, which helps a lot

  • Nadine

    I love being able to buy Panera and Starbucks cards at Staples and get 5X points rather than just 2 points if I paid directly at the stores.

  • Steve

    While a great feature are the airline transfer partners, the best feature of this program is the ability to transfer points instantly. Now you can wait until an award is available before transferring the points.

  • Robyn

    5x on gift cards at office supply stores and utilities like my cell phone bill!

  • SteveL

    5X Points at Office Supply Stores!

  • Rob D

    I love the huge 50k sign up bonus.

  • Pat

    Flying primarily from Indianapolis, Southwest is frequently the best choice. My favorite feature is that the points transfer seamlessly to Southwest.

  • cathn

    5x on stupidly high fees like cable and cell phones, then transfer for travel to Oz!

  • Brian

    5x bonuses are the best in the game…and thanks to TPG advice, I was able to get my wife to sign up with me.

  • Alex

    5x Amazon via Staples!

  • Brett Albertson

    The 5x bonus categories are the reason the ink and bold cards are great.

  • Ken

    The flexibility of UR points

  • Jacob

    Chase’s excellent UR web interface and the ease of use of UR points makes these cards a total winner for a business owner like me.

  • Gina

    The transfer partners! Ultimate Rewards give you great flexibility!

  • flyguy

    transferring 22k UR points for a night at the park hyatt paris…and only ‘spending’ $4,400 at office supply stores

  • John

    I like being able to transfer point to United and then booking on Singapore Air.

  • Jenny

    The sign up bonus!

  • Uncle Billy

    5x on stupidly high fees like cable and cell phones!

  • Kevin

    5x at office supply stores is nice, but I honestly don’t use it much. For me the biggest perk is actually the annual membership to Lounge Club and two free annual lounge passes. I love this perk because it’s something I wouldn’t normally get to experience, and that to me makes the most valuable travel perk.

  • Bryan Jordan

    It’s so nice to be able to transfer my points wherever I want. Much easier than other programs and cards!

  • Jeff

    5X points on my cable and cell phone bill rocks!

  • Cambridge50

    oh, ink plus you stand alone,
    Though you are not metal like Sapphire
    Nor do you gleam like Gold.
    But when I call 1-800
    After just one ring, a human answers your phone.

  • Rick

    Versatility of UR points and 5x on cable and cell is a huge plus!

  • JB

    Love the Chase Ink family due to 5x on cable and cell bills. Right there that can easily add up to more than 2000 to 2500 UR points a month! Helps redeeming those Lufthansa first class awards to Europe!

  • PrateekJain2012

    great list of partners to transfer to. I love to transfer to united and fly with one of the star alliance partners!

  • Todd

    The free Lounge Club membership is my favorite perk. It allows two free passes per year and after that I can use it for $27 a visit when I have a long layover.

  • Scott C

    My favorite benefit at the moment is the ability to transfer to Hyatt. I topped up my account for a trip to San Francisco over Labor Day for a quick family getaway.

  • railingk

    5x on cable bills, transferring to United, getting a biz-class flight on a strange Asian partner airline for my honeymoon!

  • JoeBob Frank

    It’s all about the transfers to Southwest!

  • Zila

    “There once was a guy,
    “TPG” was his name
    Donating points-
    That was his fame,
    Bonus points or exchanges,
    It really don’t matter,
    ‘Cause in MY case, There is
    A ticket to claim!”

  • jmartin

    I lie to go to Office Depot or Staples to buy Starbuck’s gift cards for the 5x points. If I just used my Sapphire card at Starbucks, you only get 2x points. It’s little things like this that help to rack up points quickly

  • TA

    I love the ability to transfer them to Hyatt and book stays…And, also, book airline tickets paying with points and earn miles on their redemptions.

  • Nicole

    Oh please oh please oh please, I could really use these!
    Easy transfer to United has been lovely and wonderfully useful! :)

  • FW

    Being able to transfer reward points to United.

  • Eric S

    50k sign up bonus

  • AnnieLovesParis

    Oooh, great giveaway! Also great: ability to buy Amazon cards at Staples and get 5% back.

  • Hao Tran

    I like redeeming them for travel on Star Alliance, via MileagePlus transfers.

  • Scott Lehto

    I use it for my phone/cable bill since the sapphire preferred doesn’t give me extras on those…as well as buying Starbucks gift cards at staples to get 5x points

  • Kim@Eyesonthedollar

    I love all the Chase cards because it’s so easy to transfer and combine points.

  • Nick

    5x bonuses at stationary shops

  • Sol

    5X bonus at office stores is awesome!

  • J McLean

    I like the extra earnings for shopping in particular categories (cell phone & internet is the best)

  • Chaim

    5X points on telecommunication expenses and no foreign transaction fees!

  • Eric

    Convincing everyone at my company that they should ask the boss if they can upgrade their cell phone data service knowing that I can get free Hyatt stays with all those extra points.

  • aliebs

    5x at office supply stores and the transferring to Southwest Airlines. Add in the companion pass and it’s much easier to buy tickets for the family

  • Alford

    I love the ability to transfer points to partner airlines, especially United. I was able to top off my account and book awards for the World Cup 2014. So. Excited.

  • Ryan from MA

    5x bonus on Office Supplies!

  • Claire

    5x at OfficeMax, phone, cable, internet: nothing can beat all that!

  • sundk

    I like the 5x points at office supply stores where I can stock up on Amazon giftcards!

  • Sam

    5X points on categories like office supply! Load up on gift cards for any store your planning on shopping at, it’s like a discount. Then use gift cards paired with other discount offers. Rock on.

  • Fabio Povoa

    Hands down, the 50K sign up bonus are a killer perk. I just got the Chase Ink (already had the Sapphire Pref) from your post.

  • IH

    Chase INK UR since you can transfer 1:1 with so many different programs = very flexible & 5X phone bill & office does not hurt either :)

  • LC▲

    My favorite per is receiving the 50K sign up all year long and the use of the Ultimate Rewards

  • Felix D. Arauz

    My two favorite perks are the No foreign transaction fees and the 5X points. I have having to deal with making purchased and having to figure out not just the exchange rate but having to also worry about the foreign transaction fees. After time those small $1.25, $2.60 foreign transaction fees add up and can put you over budget specially when you dont want to be dealing with carrying local currency and/or having to worry about finding a money exchange office. As far as the 5X points well… the sooner I can earn points the sooner I can plan a family vacation!

  • Nickerss

    My favorite perk is the ability to transfer UR points to various airlines and Amtrak.

  • Pr

    We have both the Ink Bold and Ink Plus and there are two reasons–extra points for cell phone expenses and transfer options. Good cards!

  • Ali

    The bonuses!

  • Felix D. Arauz

  • Chuck

    I have to agree with the ones who said 5X on telecom and internet along with the Office supply stores.

  • benstephens

    Simple – 5x at office supply stores.

  • Fat Ted

    The 5x categories and the 60,000 sign up are the best things bout the Ink card. Waiting for that signup bonus to post soon and would love 10,000 more!

  • Espan

    Multiple, useful and easy transfer partners…

  • John D.

    For sure the 5x on telecom and the shopping portal bonuses.

  • rick

    5X beats 2X beats 1X any day at office supply stores and telecom

  • Jeremy

    5x rewards on Staples Free After Easy Rebates are my favorite feature

  • dean

    Stacking points at Staples. Great path to great trips!!

  • Joe

    1:1 transfer to United which is the most generous airline mileage program out there. With one free city layover and open-jaw route….it’s hard to beat

  • J

    5x bonus!

  • Ruth

    can earn UR that combine with my Sapphire card

  • cotoneloc

    Def 5x for at office supply stores! Who’s to say whether my new 14 piece non-stick pot and pan set, which earned me 1000 points, is actually for the breakroom!

  • Atomz4Peace

    By far the best benefit of the ink mastercards are the 60k bonus offers plus a little spend transferring to Hyatt for 3 nights at the Park Hyatt Maldives! Three nights for nothing? Priceless….

  • Mitesh Amin

    Earning 5x in the “office supply” category is easy and fun! The points are also extremely valuable and flexible. Maybe one of the best reward programs out there.

  • Jasanna

    I just rather love the 5x bonuses and the extra bonuses at gas stations. I swear, we’re always driving all over the place, it just makes it so worth it when we travel by car to see family and friends, it helps us out when we fly someplace else to enjoy ourselves. Win win!

  • Matt T.

    I love being able to transfer to Hyatt, one of the best redemption rates out there…for now, lol.

  • SM

    The 5x bonus on cable and telecom is great because using the card to pay my home cable/internet and cell phone bills alone make up for the annual fee. Any way to earn United miles at a faster rate is great.

  • Jay

    Transferring 1 to 1 for United is easily my favorite perk, especially after SPG devalued its transfer policy for Continental/United.

  • drbubba

    5x points on telecom and office supplies.easily good for 5,000+ points/month

  • Diane

    I am new to Chase Ink MC. Wow they offer so many easy to get perks! First came my bonus miles for signing up, then came the best – NO Foreign transaction fee when I go visit my grandkids in Canada, then I went to Off ice Max and bought gift cards What fun I am having spending money! Now I use the cards for everything Gas to gets extra points. I am looking forward to using the points on several of the 10 airline partners. This is one of the best cards ever! Ink is at the Head of the Class! I keep it in the front of my wallet. I just keep on swiping! DK

  • Cheryl

    The ability to transfer to multiple hotel and airline programs.

  • morriswt

    I like the No Foreign Transaction fees and the redemption opportunities with United, BA, and Korean. No foreign transaction fees have saved me tons of $ as I have traveled overseas for fun and work.

  • Mark D

    5x on telecom and internet are fantastic because they are no-brainers. Just set your bill to autopay and watch the points pile up.

  • catmando

    Hard to choose only one!
    Ultimate Rewards program rocks!
    2 Complimentary Lounge Club passes per year with discounted prices after complimentary visits is worth the annual fee!
    5x on office supplies is awesome!
    No foreign transaction fee creates big savings when outside US!

  • Narayana

    I like the card for the 5x at office stores and also the combination of the UR mall which make the points add up very quickly.

  • Amanda

    I like the bonus points at office supply stores!

  • Randy

    The 5X bonus at Office Depot is one of the greatest perks of the card.

    Love getting 5x on gift cards for Shell gas , or even stamps. Every wedding/graduation/housewarming gift I give is some combo of gift cards purchased at Staples. Easy & lucrative!

  • Peter

    No foreign transaction fees is a huge perk for me!

  • Sean

    The 5x UR points on office supplies, Internet, and cable services!

  • Winnie

    5x on gift cards at Staples!

  • Bjorn

    I like being able to transfer points to many different reward programs!

  • Thomas Kim

    5x on gift cards bought at staples

  • JasonD

    I like the ability to transfer to Amtrak!

  • Jessica

    I love the ability to transfer between rewards partners.

  • P L

    I LOVE the ability to transfer point to BA Avios, best redemption for short haul domestic!

  • Ian Wittman

    60k signup bonus was my favorite perk. The card itself has some good 5x categories too, but the signup couldn’t be beat.

  • RICK


  • Jane

    5X everything at office supply stores – all the great gift cards !!

  • Chris

    60k sign-up bonus, 5x on gift cards (so all my Amazon purchases) and a consistent 2X on gas.

  • Lor

    The 5x points can’t be beat especially when ordering online thru numerous portals than buying from an office supply store.

  • TimmyD

    The 5x bonus categories are great!

  • Alexandra

    I like the ability to amass points quickly using office supply stores. Those nice points are a easily converted to perfect first class ticket or a top of the line Hyatt!

  • Orly

    no foreign transacting fees are FANTASTICO!!!

  • Rick

    Honestly, I receive directions from the minister of travel…my wife. She is a fiend on what card to use when. I love the card because she hands it to me when I need to spend and the Ink is a fav of her with directions to go to OD. We go on amazing vacations for free!

  • Carl Cheng

    My favorite thing is the amazing 5x points for all my cable and phone bills and for getting gift cards at Staples, and especially doubling up with the Ultimate Rewards Mall for an extra 3x on e-gift cards.

  • JF

    I have Ink and Sapphire. Planning on transferring to United for a trip to Europe next spring.

  • ChasingThePoints

    I love the Ink for the constant 2x on gas

  • Phil

    I like that with Ink I can collect points at office supply stores and that the points can be converted to first class air tickets
    or Hyatt nights.

  • Carl H

    My favorite benefit is being able to transfer to United and then using the points for United first class. However, what really makes the card great is all the benefits and how they work together. 5x wouldn’t be much good without good transfer partners, that wouldn’t be any good without high credit limits for fast business spending, the ability to turn Freedom points into United and Hyatt points though Ink Bold adds to it as well. It’s really the whole package that makes this card special.

  • CJ

    being able to transfer to united on 1:1 point basis

  • skdelta

    5x telecom

  • David

    Earning 5x points on telecommunication and office supply stores is my favorite peek!

  • mco

    love the high points that show up on the statement for the phone/cable/internet….. and the gift cards at the office supply stores…. oh, and the 5x…. and the possibilities and the dreaming of where to go!!

  • Sheila Hall

    I like to travel to Europe quite a bit so my favorite perk is being able to transfer United for a first class Lufthansa.

  • herringtonb

    It would have to be the 5x bonus at office supply stores. My wife loves Nordstroms and goes through Starbucks like water so we order a lot of gift cards through Staples and pay with our Chase Ink card.

  • Kris Abad

    I buy my Shell gas cards and amazon gift cards in Staples to get 5 points per dollar then transferring the points to my favorite UR partners: Star Alliance’s United and Hyatt hotels.

  • Marc

    5x bonuses and the transfer partners.

  • Liz

    5x points at office stores for gift cards and great sign up bonus. 10,000points on British Avios will let me go to New York for FREE to see my soon to be twin grand babies.

  • FFlyer

    I like the 5x bonus on office supplies

  • BrownLunchSack

    I love the ability to transfer points to Hyatt. It’s great staying at top tier hotels for free!

  • md9802

    5x bonus on office supplies is great

  • Patrick Mc

    My favorite perk of the Ink Plus card is the 5X points on Cable/Internet/Phone bill that I pay every month anyway!! The variety of transfer partners is pretty great too.

  • shonuffharlem

    Oh by far and away the 5x points at office supply stores – no other deal is that good, as its stackable with shopping portal offers!

  • David

    5X categories are the best benefit (though the 50k signup bonus of ultra-transferable points is great too!)

  • gw1754

    My favorite perk has to be the transfer partners, especially Hyatt and United. Earning the points and bonuses is great, but being able to instantly transfer those points can’t be beat!

  • GordonOH

    I love my INK Bold card because I rack up 5x points for my purchases at Staples and 2x points at gas stations.

  • Duane

    I love the transfer partners, especially United and Hyatt.

  • ride2climb

    I love the 5x bonuses at Office Depot.

  • MooeyJC

    My favorite perks is to be able to earn 5X on all the phone bills and internet,
    also able to earn 5x at office supply stores!

  • bsheern

    Nice! We were there last week and it’s an awesome hotel!

  • bsheern

    My favorites are the 5x on telecom because that’s a large expense that would be made regardless and transfers to BA because it got us to Maui! Can’t beat that!

  • KevinMG

    The value of this card is twofold: the impressive number of avenues for points redemption (solving all traveler needs through spending points) and the the impressive number of ways to earn points for redemption in combination with the rest of the Chase Ultimate Rewards points all star roster of cards (solving all traveler needs through earning points).

  • Sarwar Mazid

    My main reason is the “ability to transfer to United miles”. I am a frequent flier based out of Atlanta and have been defaulted to taking Delta flights since it offers non-stop flights to most of the major US destinations where I travel for work.

    But when it comes to mileage redemption, Delta Skymiles is a really bad fit for me personally. I have family members who live in Bangladesh and Australia, who I visit on a yearly basis. Only United allows me to book the following one-way trips with the least mileage needed for award redemption:
    ATL->DAC = 32,500
    DAC->MEL = 30,000
    MEL->ATL = 40,000
    Total = 102,500 miles only for the whole trip!

    I can even squeeze in free stopovers at places like Frankfurt, Istanbul, Singapore, Bangkok, Sydney, etc.

    When I combine the Ink with Sapphire and Freedom that I already have from Chase, instant ultimate reward point transfer to United miles without any fees is by far the best value that I have been able to get out of all the loyalty programs that I belong to (Delta, United, Starwood, Marriott, Hertz).


  • Elena Garcia

    For Ink Bold I like the 5x points/@ at office supplies and using the Lounge Club for 2 free pass per yr

  • bufito

    The synergy between Chase cards: Ink, CSP, and Freedom makes it the most powerful and versatile combination available

  • Guo Yi

    I love Chase Ink Bold because I earn tons of points by using it to purchase a lot of Amazon gift cards at Staples. Then I transfer to my UA account. And I am able to spend those Amazon gift cards very quickly on online shopping. Yeah!

  • Daniel Rudov

    Definitely the 5x bonus categories. I was living at a student co-op for a while, and being able to pay our U-verse bill for 5x was great. But also, when we needed to get windows installed, I could buy Home Depot gift cards at Office Depot to cover it. Then the immediate transfers to Southwest and United give me the flexibility to get places quickly when things pop up.

  • Gary

    Because it’s just one more way to earn and transfer points into UR!

  • Yong

    The ability to keep expenses separate per AU, since each has its own number, and the 0% forex fee.

  • Miles Matter

    Teh 5x points on office supply stores makes it a winner.

  • Simon

    The 5x for staples and telecom by far is my fav perks.

  • Sean

    5x points at office supply stores is an amazing perk for any of us with small businesses

  • Wing tips

    Saving 5% on my cable bills!

  • Oliver Palley

    Favorite benefit of the card is 2 free Lounge Club passes annually, because with all the points you get from the card, you’re doing a lot more free travel!

  • The Wanderer

    Office stores discount

  • Taking the Points

    UR make it a keeper

  • turgutbey

    Transfers to United and the 5x at office supply stores for my amazon purchases.

  • Yati

    5x categories!!!!

  • MilesMan

    Saving on my outrageous cable bill.

  • aureo11

    I love the fact that I get 5 point/dollar for my phone and internet! Obviously not the best perk moneywise, but I like it.

  • Dave P

    Flexibility! 5x on cell phone and cable = flights and hotels galore.

  • Thea Dwelle

    My favorite perk of the INK cards has to be the 5x category bonuses. I use that for filling my BlueBird, but also gift cards for regular spend, and office supplies. When I’m not filling a minimum spend, I only use INK and Sapphire. Addictive!

  • Karl Humble

    I love the united miles transfer for premium international flights. I recently flew Lufthansa business class from Frankfurt to Vancouver and it was an amazing experience.

  • road2elysium

    5x at office supply stores. It’s how I get my Amazon on!

  • David Schadov

    Ink Business Bold: main advantages for me – good sign on bonus and ability to tranfer points to United.

  • 2ruse

    loved the signup bonus – also that there are no foreign transaction fees – amazing that so many cards still have the nerve to charge them

  • omar

    I love the transfer partners like United and Hyatt.

  • dwh

    I like being able to transfer to multiple partners. KE 1st and LH 1st in my future cuz of Chase cards.

  • Matt

    My favorite perk is points transfers to United. I was able to book 3 award flights for my family to Israel at 80k/each.

  • Paul S.

    I like the card because of the ultimate rewards program. Arguably the best points program available.

  • fotobrad

    I like the ability to use my Ink Bold or Ink Plus to buy Vanilla Reloads at Valero gas stations. I buy a $500. reload and get 1000 points since it registers as a gasoline purchase!

  • Taryn

    I love the ability to transfer to Hyatt for a great deal on tier 6 redemptions!


    5x points on phone bill

  • Claire

    The Best thing about the Chase Ink Bold is the 5x earning power through office supply stores/utilities bills! hands DOWN

  • Eugene

    Yeah, like so many others, it’s the 5x on telecom bonus that’s so nice. It’s money I will have to spend every month anyway, cellphone, internet, why not get 5x points back? and I have it auto pay every month, effortless.

  • FormerHoosier

    I like the transfer partners!

  • Christina

    Getting 5 points per $ on my cable & phone bills, it really add up! Enjoy staying with some fine Hyatt hotels thanks to the Chase Ink program.

  • Carol Westerman

    My favorite thing is that I can purchase airline tickets on the airline of my choice, using Ultimate Reward Points, and I still get the chosen airline FF miles/points for the flight! For those long hauls, this can be a terrific perk!

  • Peter5

    5x at Staples! Just bought $4K of Lowes gift cards to purchase a new range. That’s 20K UR points!

  • Jerry

    5x at office supply stores

  • Allen

    5X @ office supply stores

  • tresgatos

    My favorite perk is definitely the ability to transfer points to United and IHG. Since we live in Hawaii, paying for airfare is always expensive and being able to use miles on United instead makes more vacations possible. And being able to use IHG points on hotels is icing on the cake.

  • Jtse818

    Extra points for Staples purchases

  • Geri Jeter

    I really like the “no foreign exchange fees” option. Those can really add up when you are traveling, so it’s nice not to have to calculate that into the cost of an item.

  • pat d

    5X @ office supply stores

  • Tricia Lew

    We live in the middle of the desert and many of the things we eat or use come from By stocking up on Amazon gift cards at an office supply store the few times a year we get to the “big city” with our Ink Bold/Plus cards, we’re able to earn 5 times the Ultimate Rewards. Careful planning (booking through United to access the Star Alliance) and shopping have given our family the best of both worlds – living in a small town, rural environment while still getting the chance to see and interact with the world at large.

  • Bark Mulch

    As far as benefits, there are the usual suspects but It has also been quite a chick magnet for me and it is great when I lock myself out of my house! Cheers!!!

  • Sandeep B

    5x at office stores…what else!

  • houstonmama

    I love being able to transfer my Ultimate Reward points to Hyatt. Only 22000 points for their top tier hotels can’t be beat!

  • Stuart

    5 X bonus at office supply stores!

  • David Liang

    Definitely the 5x points on office supply stores!

  • Helen S

    I’ll cheat. 5x on office supplies/Internet/phone plus 2x on gas. Hard to beat.

  • Sean King

    Chase Ink is great because of it has X5 miles bonus at office supply stores!

  • Nancy Taylor

    5x points on Office Supply and phone/internet is my favorite perk of the Chase Ink card.

    5x in points for purchase at office supply store, of course.

    5x bonus points!

  • Michelle

    5x points on cell phone and internet services? Take THAT Comcast, and thank you for sponsoring my next trip!

  • Nicole

    5x Amazon!

  • Alex Parets

    It’s definitely the flexibility that comes with them. I can transfer to so many different partners!

  • Michael Macken

    Flexibility with hotels and airplanes are superb.

  • Amy

    Anything that makes travel a little less expensive is the “Why”. The 20% off travel when redeeming Ultimate Rewards gets my vote.


    I use the transfer to Southwest to travel with the family to Vegas. Best deal out there!

  • Antoin Glenn

    5x pts @ + 3x pts thru UR portal on Southwest gift cards!

  • Dan

    United! For travel to Thailand via Lufthansa First and Thai Airways.

  • Matt Poljak

    flexibility, flexibility, flexibility… Ultimate Rewards points are the most transferable points out there, allowing us to top off accounts for rewards bookings quickly!

  • LLuo

    5x bonus on Amazon gift cards via Staples along with 5x on utilities. I use it to pay for my parents utilities bills even… =)

  • ashley

    transfer to hyatt is the best

  • RHarraka

    A transfer of Ultimate Rewards points over to Virgin got me a First class seat from LAX to Chicago for less than 50,000 miles RT. Can’t go wrong with that.

  • Fiona

    I don’t have many expenses so I love that for the few I do have (internet, phone) I can get 5x the miles on them! Yes, it’s not much but it all adds up!

  • Rachel

    I just spent a weekend with friends in Zurich. We stayed at the Park Hyatt which cost…$0. A really fun weekend in an amazing hotel for only 22,000 points/night (transferred 1:1 from Chase)…meaning that the whole stay was less than the signup bonus alone. Great redemption value!

  • Yetta

    Using the Ultimate Rewards web site to book travel that still earns me miles and points!

  • Marib

    Hard to pick but the 5x points on telecom and the ability to transfer points are awesome!

  • Rachel

    I’m going there for New Years this year. So excited! I’m getting 2 nights for free from the Hyatt credit card bonus.

  • caitlinfinnegan

    Favorite perk: The ability to transfer points to Hyatt Hotels at 1:1 ratio. Am doing a mini-round the world trip October-January. Chase Ink Ultimate Rewards points has paid for 2 nights @ Andaz Amsterdam, 2 nights @ Park Hyatt Zurich, and 4 nights @ Park Hyatt Vendome (well, that one had a little help from the Chase Hyatt card, but still)…

  • gpuzzi

    Amtrak is still a great transfer partner for last minute train rides. No need to head back to NYC from Philly after an Eagles game until you are ready!

  • The Conductor

    Because-all rewards aside-they’re a genuinely useful way to build business credit. Chase plays well with businesses, where many other banks don’t.

  • Chris

    The spend bonus on this card is amazing… but the top bonus, for me, is the 5% point back at office supply stores! Great earning potential there. I spend alot at office supplies for our office so its a great way to rack up some points from otherwise everyday spending. ::hope I win!::

  • Katey M

    My fav perk is that I automatically earn 5 x bonus points every month for my cell phone, internet and cable autopay payments. Love it when you don’t even have to think about it!

  • Jeremyh

    ability to earn at 5x and then transfer to Hyatt at 1:1!!!

  • John Ellison

    Favorite Perk: Transfer into Hyatt for vacation stays at top-tier properties.

  • David

    I love the ability to transfer to Hyatt!

  • Paolo Beltran

    The best perk is the 5x points on Amazon from Staples since I shop on Amazon all the time!

  • Jason

    Chase Ink for 5x on business expenses. I’m trying so hard to get enough points to go to Hawaii for a honeymoon and making purchases at office supply stores is really helping me accumulate points.
    And of course 10,000 points would be suuuuuper helpful. Thanks!

  • Cheryl

    The best perk is being able to transfer points to any of five airlines frequent flier accounts of you or your spouse.

  • SK

    My favorite perk is being able to pay my cell phone bill and health insurance on it, and getting 5x points for something that no other card would reward me for!

  • George Iversen

    love the 5x points on telecommunications and the ability to transfer to United and Southwest – Ultimate rewards has become the top rewards program

    5X phone, internet services

  • Ahmed

    the 5x @ office supply stores is awesome

  • Matt

    5x on telecom

  • Michael

    Buying Home Depot gift cards from Staples through Chase UR Mall at 5+3=8 points. I spend thousands at HD!!!!

  • Russ


  • Russ

    Transfer to United

  • @ashan087

    The ability to use for both business and personal expenses, managed by a reliable & established firm, with many redemption options, that are quickly available, the most significant of which is to convert UR points to United’s Mileageplus at 1:1 ratio, that can be leveraged by Star Alliance partners….

  • suzsy

    5x categories and transfer partners!

  • Sandeep

    The best perk is 5X Internet and Cell phone which is a necessary expense and no artificial spending. Another best thing is to combine the Chase Freedom points with Ink card and transfer them to any partner of your choice when you need them.

  • Dina

    The best perk is the ability to earn 5x at internet, cable, phone and office portals. You can use it to get 5x on many other places due to giftcards.

  • artezd

    Definitely 5X categories are my favorite. I even managed to move some of my household purchased to office stores when they offer big discounts to take advantage of it. Of course, clicking through the UR Mall to take an additional 2-3x points:)

  • KR

    5x at office supply stores and 2x for gas

  • Spacetime17

    Chase Ink is in my AOR planned for this weekend! Looking forward to the 5X categories on Internet and phone.

    best feature – two words: lounge club

  • Paul

    I transfer my miles to United and use them for trip (in coach, alas) to and from France. I’ve done this three times so far.

  • R.

    5X bonus.

  • Jake

    This card is the only thing that makes getting office supplies fun.

  • Philip

    The best perk for me is instant transfer to Amtrak, with that I could get a bedroom from Chicago to LA for 40,000 points which would have cost around $2,000 cash.

  • DanR NYC

    The ability to transfer, at will, with many options. Points transfer instantaneously !!

  • heavenlyjane

    Best part of having the card is te ability to create a bucket of extra points to use to make up small deficisies in other program baances.

  • snakedoc1

    I love the 2 Lounge Club passes I get each year with Ink Bold.

  • Keaton S. Taylor

    I have to say I’ve been doing massive amounts of research on the Chase Ink and other assorted cards like the Sapphire Preferred and the Chase Freedom.

    Currently I have the Sapphire Preferred and like others in the comments I’m planning on snatching up the Ink when the higher point bonus comes along.

    In my research just the 5X points for Cell Phone services, TV and Internet plus the 2X points for Gas is enough to grant myself one free roundtrip domestic flight each year. If you combine this with the Chase Freedom and the Sapphire Preferred it jumps up to almost paying for an roundtrip International Trip each year.

    I’ve always wanted to travel the world and see all that there is to see on the planet. The Chase Ink gives me the opportunity to do that without breaking the bank. I(‘m actually still a student who does software development on the side.)

    As I final note the chase card trio gives me the power to do something that I hold very close to my heart. My mother who is suffering from thyroid cancer has never once flew on a plane nor left the country. My main motivation for seeing out sites like TPG was to accrue enough points by the end of 2014 to pay for an international trip with her. I follow your site religiously and because of TPG my goal seems more realistic than ever. I sincerely thank you for sharing your knowledge with the world and helping me get one more step closer to my goals.

  • Michael

    My favorite perk is earning 5 points per dollar at Office Supply Store where I buy gift cards to spend other places.

  • Elenor

    I love the Ink Bold because it’s the card I got for the (app) miles to fly out to SFran for my best friend’s wedding. My husband died in 2011 and left me with a (very large) credit card debt, which I am paying off as fast as I can (3 more years {sigh}) — but Chase actually let me have this card, which gave me the miles, which got me to the wedding! I use the Ink Bold for business and personal expenses, and I love the feeling of getting points with purchases…

    (I know, I know, it’s a really low-end perk and not something most miles/points people care about — but for me? It’s a sign that life goes on, and I can pull out of this true low point in my life! I have relied on the rental car coverage and I love the ability to go through the mall and get extra points; for me? It’s the base/basic perks that mean the most right now — normality, carrying on, the glimpses of future travel as the points mount up.)

  • ken k

    The ultimate flexibility to transfer points to several ultimate rewards partners is the one reason that I like the card.

  • Skyler

    Ink Bold’s no foreign transaction fee makes it easy to keep track of business expenses while traveling in foreign countries without paying ridiculous fees.

  • Armando86

    The best perk is the no foreign transaction fee. This is always a great benefit while travelling abroad!

  • Larry

    The bonus categories are my favorite, it covers something other than dining or travel.

  • Kyle

    My favorite perk is combining mileage. The Chase Rewards points are easy to combine and we are using this card to combine with United miles to fly to Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney, and maybe Tokyo on the way!

  • AndyM

    Ultimate Rewards Transfers, Plus 5 points for internet, cable, phone/cell phone!!

    no foreign transaction fee which is a very huge deal for a person who flies overseas a lot.

  • Jackie

    I love the range of partners to transfer point to – including Southwest and Amtrak!

  • Opfitness

    The ink bold cards are great for my small business. I use it for purchases at office supply stores, for cable and Internet and my wireless service. No other card offers 5X the points for these purchases that I know of. I’ve been happy so far to add these cards to my business.
    Thank you

    I think the one significant perk between the cards is the lounge club access included with the Chase Ink Plus.

  • Rich

    Rolling bonus category on the freedom!

  • Peter

  • DaveWeemz

    The best perk is the transfer partners, and the fact that in most cases the transfers are immediate.

  • paddington bear

    5x at office supply stores and transfers to United!

  • Lisa K

    5X bonuses!

  • Marc T

    There is nothing better than 5X by purchasing gift cards in Staples with the card!

  • Jeremy

    Transfer to BA. Also can buy cats with them.

  • Linda

    I love it for 5x points at office supply stores and communication purchases.

  • Kim

    Thanks to the tip from TPG, I loved the recent Ink Bold and Ink Plus sign up bonus of 60,000 each! Will use that toward a flite to Germany for my Aunt’s 80th Birthday. We plan to go to the Matterhorn for her very special day. I am thrilled that I can use those points to easily accompany her.

  • Skip

    My favorite persk are cash back

  • angwu426

    The fact there’s not one but three of these.

  • Natalia

    My favourite perk is the no foreign exchange fees.

  • Trenton Murphey

    Transfer partners and big bonuses are why I love these cards!

  • James Laurette

    5x points on cellular!

  • Katrina

    With the amount of international travel I do the no foreign transaction fees are awesome! Bonus that my night SE Asian holiday will likely be from a points transfer to United.

  • Kurt

    My favorite benefit is the ultimate rewards with many travel partners.

  • AdventureTraveler

    Love Chase Ink because I can rack up so many points than with other cards. My husband is retired, so our income is more limited, but “Ink” is going to take us to Africa for a combo explore and volunteer vacation.

  • Andy

    5x bonus on Amazon.

  • bodphila

    I love the five times points for telecom and cable expenses, and I love being able to stay at the Park Hyatt Vendome!

  • bill twombly

    I like to transfer to Ua or AA for either tickets or to top off my AA upgrade certificates.

  • Leon Yuan

    love the point transfer perk! So i can top up to my United, Hyatt, or Amtrak to redeem awards!

  • Nathan

    The 5x bonus categories are the primary reason I keep this card

  • emily

    the combo of southwest, ba, and united as transfer partners is killer!

  • Dan R

    Being able to transfer Ultimate Rewards points to airlines (and hotels and trains for that matter).

  • Troy Dennis

    staples is my new go to store for everything now that I have ink bold

  • BevosAngryGhost

    My favorite perk is definitely the transerablility of Ultimate Rewards. I can save up toward international flights with United, or send them to Southwest for a short domestic hop.

  • Jivko

    I love the 5x rewards, the wide range of airlines/hotels that I can transfer across and the 60k sign-up bonus that helped me book a free round trip ticket to Amsterdam. Thanks TPG!

  • Jonathan Leung

    5X telecom and the 60k pts sign up bonus!!

  • Mr. Cool

    by far the BEST value is hyatt 22k cat7 reward by way of $5k/day spend @ CVS!

  • Aleks

    My favorite feature is being able to earn points fast with cable/phone/internet/office supplies and then instantly transfer to UA for tickets to Europe.

  • Neil Smith

    I just love the ease of transferring to SouthWest and international perks like no exchange fees and free insurance PRICELESS

  • Ayjay

    Love the lounge passes!

  • ryanzalewski

    Easy transfers to United and Hyatt!

  • SatelliteInternet

    In My opinion about Ink Plus, UltimateRewards are the most valuable points out there – because you can transfer instantaneously to My favorite low-cost-carrier Southwest (for domestic travel) and/or transfer to United for My International travel (60k Business First class one way to Asia)…..and all this is after Chase gives me huge signup bonuses (one-time) followed by 5x points at Staples for my day-to-day spend at Amazon…..please show me just one other card issuer that can come close to this 360 degree comprehensive reward/award program….and I’ve not even talked about the UR Shopping Mall and it’s incredible features.

  • Reno Style

    My favorite benefits is being able to transfer Ultimate Rewards Points to United and booking a ticket virtually anywhere in the world on their Star Alliance partners.

  • Johnny B

    Can’t pick just one. The 5x category bonuses is the best perk.

  • Candy

    My favorite is transferring to United for a Lufthansa First Class redemption.

  • Troy

    By far its leveraging the 5x rewards at Office Supply stores

  • Zila

    So now you have to read them all,
    And then decide and make the call,
    You got yourself into a ditch,
    For all those airline deals you pitch.
    If I were you, I’d stop right here,
    “They are all the same, it’s very clear!”

  • J Brooks

    I use this card every chance I get because I was able to give my parents their dream trip. They have never flown first class and had never been to a top tier hotel. Using the Chase card for my everyday business expenses, I was able to transfer my points into Ultimate Rewards and book them a First Class suite on Asiana and also a Park Hyatt room, all for half the amount of points I might have needed with a different card. The flexibility of being able to ACTUALLY use points on flights and hotels is far better than any other program out there. I only asked them to put their phone and cable bills on my credit card so I could get X5 points!

  • Chuck

    Getting 5X spending on Amazon gift cards. I buy everything on amazon!!!

  • Rene Webb Miller

    We love that we can top off whatever account (United, Hyatt, Marriott, British Airways, Amtrak, etc.) we are close to earning a reward on with Ultimate Reward points earned with the Chase Ink cards.

  • Rachel

    I love being able to transfer points to United

  • Tatyana

    I like 5 points per $1 categories

  • Lance

    I looove my Ink Bold card because of UR and transferring my points to Hyatt! Using those to visit PH Paris during Thanksgiving!

  • Colin

    Transferring to United for Lufthansa First Class!

  • Desmond Lee

    Transferring points to United for almost free flight to Asia

  • Ethan

    The best perk are the transfer partners – such as Hyatt for hotel stays and United for flights. I love how they post almost instantly, too.

  • insanetravel12

    Ultimate Reward transfers to partners post almost immediately, allowing for quick flight redemptions

  • Bret

    I like the numerous transfer partners and big bonuses.

  • Phil

    The 5x point benefit on telephone, Internet and cable purchases is huge for someone like me. I can max out the benefit by running a residential property where I pay all utilities up front, so between United miles and Hyatt GP points at 1:1, I can take a week’s vacation to Park Hyatts each year. Milan is up next for me. Thanks TPG for keeping us all informed on how to maximize it all…ithe points really add up.

  • jfadds

    ability to top off accounts is huge

  • pc

    leveraging the 5x rewards

  • mja

    5x bonus categories are the cats meow

  • winnie

    Cant beat the 5x category bonuses

  • Hanny

    Well, the 5x bonus points on certain purchases on Ink Bold card surely a fantastic perk, but I found the ability to get 2 complementary lounge access through Lounge Club per year is a huge benefit. I often travel internationally with my baby and I don’t have elite status with any airlines so this card really helps me to get access to an airport lounge.

  • Cynthia

    I haven’t had a chance to apply for a Chase Ink yet (I’m working on spending for a Starwood AmEx), but I have a Chase Freedom and Chase Sapphire Preferred. On one of my next application rounds I will definitely be considering adding Ink to my arsenal. What appeals to me is earning 5x on cell phone, landline, internet and cable TV. After all, I’m paying for those things anyway, might as well get a boatload of points for them!

  • Cynthia

    I’m relatively new to the miles/points game. I don’t see Lounge Club on the benefit list for Chase Ink. Do you mind telling me how you get the access passes. Thanks!

  • Fred

    I travel abroad frequently, so the lack of foreign transaction fee is the best perk for me!

  • kodoma

    All the different partners and ease of transfer rocks.

  • Thinh

    The best perk is being able to transfer points to any of five airlines frequent flier accounts, esp. UA.

  • Ramsey

    My favorite is being able to transfer to BA so I can fly from DCA to Chicago on American for 9,000 points round trip and then transferring points to Hyatt so I can stay at the beautiful Park Hyatt Chicago! Can’t get a better deal to spend a few nights in Chicago!

  • Cindy

    My favorite perk so far was the 60k sign on bonus!

  • Cara

    Absolutely the 5x points on phone, internet, and cable! Or maybe it’s just the Ultimate Rewards themselves. I’ve used the points for an amazing variety of trips through their portal and by transferring to other airlines.

  • Dave

    5x points at office stores and being able to transfer to UA instantly

  • Sazzy

    My absolute favorite is transferring it 1:! to United. Now if only I could have taken advantage of that 0.00 mistake! ;)

  • sysphean

    Earning 5X points on communications is my favorite perk.

  • Huff Daland

    No brainer for me, the double points on travel related purchases is the best perk.

  • CC

    Mileage plus 1:1 is my fav.

  • Bryan

    60k signup bonus was great and the 5x points on cable/internet and cell phone are great

  • DavidLAX

    Gotta love 2x on gas!

  • jwh

    The best perk for me is the 1:1 transfer to airlines, especially United. I´ve already taken advantage of this perk this year going to Europe for < $200 !

  • Rock X

    The low annual fee for such a great card!

  • GregD

    For me, definitely the 5X points at office supply store purchases. But there are so many great perks I don’t know why everyone isn’t using all of these cards.

  • Skuba Steve

    50k sign on bonus!

  • AmyP

    Who could deny the 5x points?

  • DaniR

    5x on my cellphone bill is the best perk – because I get 5x!

  • Point Snob

    I love the free 2x lounge access per year! Gets me into the lounges in those random 2 airports that I fly through that don’t have the major lounges

  • Tina

    Love the 2 free lounge passes every year! Very nice!

  • Andrew P

    My favorite perk is 5X points at office supply stores

  • Eli Stoughton

    I would use the points to build my multi-use assets, so I don’t need to rely on one airline.

  • Nhrca1065

    Transferring to Hyatt Gold Passport, since as a Diamond member, the dollar/point value is increased significantly due to room upgrades, club access, and other Diamond benefits.

  • Jae Kim

    The best perk with the InK Bold Card that I’ve seen is indeed the 5x at Staples when purchasing gift cards. More specifically, I purchase Shell Gas gift cards for the 5x AND I discovered that when using the gift cards, the pump sets itself for the CASH price per gallon. Here in New York, gas stations have at least a 10 cent differential between the credit and cash price for gas.

  • yksmirk

    5x (+vanilla reloads) for paying my rent!

  • Maher

    TPG, I signed up for Sapphire and Ink after reading your site. I have a new found appreciation for ultimate rewards especially for the fact that they are transferable 1:1 to airlines and specifically Southwest. I live away from my elderly parents, who I need to check on often, because of work and ultimate rewards allow me to travel and check on them.

    Thank you for this great blog.

  • Ti

    You can multiple your points by using the Ultimate Rewards portal at Office stores.
