Overview

The Chase Ink Business Cash is the second of three business cards that Chase offers. A very strong 5% cash back on purchases at office supply stores, internet, cable and phone service providers gives a tremendous amount of flexibility and cash back opportunity.

Pros

  • The current sign-up bonus on this card is an impressive $750. TPG values it at $1,500, not including any points you may earn from the valuable bonus categories.
  • There is no annual fee, which is perfect for small business owners
  • You’ll earn 5% at office supply stores and on common monthly bills such as internet, cable and phone services up to $25,000 in combined purchases each account anniversary year. Plus, you’ll earn 2% cash back at gas stations and restaurants, up to $25,000 in combined purchases each account anniversary year.

Cons

  • 5% cash back earned on certain categories is capped at the first $25,000 you make in combined purchases each account anniversary year

Who is this card good for?

The Ink Business Cash Card is a solid choice for any small business that makes purchases at office supply stores and internet, cable and phone service providers. But the card tends to be particularly appealing to new business owners, since there’s no annual fee. Because you can earn cash-back rewards initially and then transfer your rewards to Ultimate Rewards points if you also have a personal or business card — like the Chase Sapphire Preferred — that earns Chase Ultimate Rewards points, the Ink Business Cash Card offers more redemption options than a cash-back card.

Earning Rewards

With the Ink Business Cash Card, you’ll earn 5% cash back on the first $25,000 you make in combined purchases each account anniversary year at office supply stores and on internet, cable and phone services. Plus, you’ll earn 2% cash back on the first $25,000 you make in combined purchases at gas stations and restaurants each account anniversary year. You’ll earn 1% cash back on all other purchases, including on spending over $25,000 each account anniversary year in the 5% and 2% categories.
