The Chase Ink Business Cash Card is a great card to add to your collection. With incredibly high rewards to be earned, any small business owner would benefit from the perks. And remember, you may have a business even if you don’t actually think you have one. Here are 5 reasons why you should have this card in your pocket:

An Outstanding Welcome Offer

The sign up bonus for the Chase Ink Business Cash Card is advertised as $900 cash back after spending $6,000 in the first 3 months. A $900 welcome offer is just about the highest welcome offer I have ever seen for a card with no annual fee. Yes, the spending requirement is higher than average, but if you have the ability to meet it, it’s a big bonus. Another way to look at the spending requirement is that it’s only $2,000 per month for three months.

But it’s actually 90,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points

This is a great savings for any business owner. But the real value is that really they just give you 90,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points. If you have a premium Chase card such as the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Ink Preferred or Chase Sapphire Reserve, you can combine your points and then 90,000 Ultimate Rewards could be worth over $1,100 when redeemed for travel or transferred to Chase Ultimate Rewards transfer partners.


Awesome bonus categories (5% and 2%)

After earning your bonus, now comes the REAL savings! The Chase Ink Business Cash Card has the following earning categories:

  • 5% cash back on the first $25,000 spent at office supply stores and communication services such as internet, cable, and phone. If you maximize this, it ends up being a $1,250 savings per year.
  • 2% cash back on the first $25,000 spent at gas stations and restaurants. If you maximize this, it send up being a $500 savings per year.
  • 1% unlimited cash back on all other charges.

As you can tell, there is immense savings to be had with the Chase Ink Business Cash Card. While you might not be able to get all the way up to the limit, having the ability to get 5x Ultimate Rewards on internet, cable and phone bills as well as take advantage of Visa / Mastercard deals at Staples or Office Depot is a nice perk.

Primary Rental Car Coverage and Travel Protections

The Chase Ink Cash card also offers primary car rental coverage in most countries around the world, as long as you are renting the car for business purposes. Renting a car using a credit card that has primary car rental coverage can be a big time and money saver if you happen to get into an accident or cause damage while renting.

The Chase Ink card also offers travel and emergency assistance services.

No Annual Fee

So many high earning or travel rewards credit cards now have annual fees attached. You can make up for that cost if you maximize your card properly, and there are a few credit cards I will pay the annual fee on. But the good news with the Chase Ink Cash card is that it doesn’t have an annual fee, so there’s no need to justify any fees at all for signing up for or keeping the card.

Other Chase Ink cards

The Chase Ink Cash card is one in a family of Chase Ink cards – here are 2 of the other cards in that family if you’re interested

  • Chase Ink Business Preferred® Credit Card: 100,000 points after spending $15,000 in the first 3 months – read our full review here.
  • Chase Ink Business Unlimited® Credit Card: 90,000 points after spending $6,000 in the first 3 months and 1.5x Ultimate Rewards on all purchases – read our full review here.

There’s also the old Chase Ink Plus card which also offers 5x on office supply stores (with a $50,000 annual limit) but it is no longer available for new signups.  All of these Chase cards are subject to Chase 5/24. So if you’re over 5/24, you likely will not be approved for any of these Chase credit cards. One other thing to note is that this is a business credit card, and typically business cards do not count towards increasing your 5/24 count.

The Bottom Line

If you have a qualifying business and are looking for a card with an excellent signup bonus and solid perks with no annual fee, the Chase Ink Business Chase is an excellent option to consider. If you have other Chase premium credit cards, it makes the value of the rewards you get from the Chase Ink even more valuable, since you can potentially combine them to get up to 50% additional value.
