Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here: Ink Plus

Earlier this week we announced that the Chase Ink Plus card featuring a limited time only sign-up bonus where you’ll earn 70,000 points when you spend $5,000 in 3 months. Obviously this is a great deal not to be missed, especially when you consider all of the partners within the Ultimate Rewards network (United, British Airways, Southwest, Korean Air, Virgin Atlantic, Singapore Airlines, Hyatt, Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, IHG/Priority Club and Amtrak), so the 70,000 point bonus is worth at least $1,470 to me.
