Refer a friend Chase Ink is back! This is a promotion that Chase seems to do every couple of months with various of its cards. Currently the bonus for the Chase Ink card is up to 80,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points and if you already have a Chase Ink card, you can refer your friends and earn 20,000 Ultimate Rewards for each friend that signs up.  If you would like to support this blog by signing up for the Chase Ink Preferred card with the 80,000 Ultimate Rewards offer, you can do so here, and feel free to leave your referral links in our free miles and points Facebook group.

Benefits to Refer a Friend Chase Ink

The Chase Ink card is a great card to have and this is a great bonus.  The one downside is that its annual fee of $95 is not waived.  You do have to spend $5000 in the first 3 months also to get the 80,000 bonus point offer.

It claims that the 80,000 Ultimate Rewards bonus is worth $1000 towards travel, and that’s true if you are redeeming through Chase Ultimate Rewards, but by using their transfer partners, you can get MUCH more out of it.

We transferred 100,000 Ultimate Rewards points to Amtrak (back when Chase points transferred to Amtrak) and used that to book a roundtrip train ride for our family of 8, something that would have cost $6500 if we had paid out of pocket!  More recently I’ve had great luck transferring 8000 Chase points to Hyatt to book a hotel that would have cost $300

The Chase Ink is a business card

One thing to note is that the Chase Ink IS a business card.  But you very well may have a business even if you don’t think that you have one!

Benefits of the Chase Ink Preferred

This is a Chase Ink Preferred refer a friend offer.  I have a Chase Ink Plus card, but that card is no longer open for new signups.  The Chase Ink Preferred benefits include

  • 3x points on your first $150,000 in spend on travel, shipping purchases, cable and phone, Internet and advertising on social media and search engines
  • This is a premium Chase card, which means that it opens up transfers to Chase’s travel partners
  • The Chase Ink Preferred IS subject to Chase 5/24, so if you’ve been approved for 5 or more cards from any bank in the past 24 months, you will likely not be approved.
  • As mentioned, the $95 annual fee is NOT waived the first year, though personally the Chase Ink IS one of the 4 cards I will pay the annual fee on

Checking to see if you’re eligible

I believe anyone that has a Chase Ink card is eligible for this refer a friend offer.  You can check by going over to to get your own personal link.
