Chase Ink Cash Sweetens Bonus to $500, In-Person Only
At NerdWallet, we strive to help you make financial decisions with confidence. To do this, many or all of the products featured here are from our partners. However, this doesn’t influence our evaluations. Our opinions are our own.

Update March 23, 2018: This offer is now available through NerdWallet.

The Ink Business Cash℠ Credit Card is popular among small-business owners for its $0 annual fee and 0% introductory APR offer, which set it apart from many of its competitors among cash-back credit cards for business. Now Chase has added another major differentiator: the biggest cash sign-up offer available on a no-fee credit card.

Starting March 12, 2018, new cardholders can earn a $500 bonus after they spend $3,000 on purchases in the first three months from account opening. That’s a 67% increase from the card’s standard $300 bonus offer for the same amount of spending. Chase says the new bonus is not a limited-time offer, but rather will be the standard offer from now on.

The catch: For now, the only way to get this offer is to apply for it in person at a Chase bank branch office.

The Ink Business Cash℠ Credit Card pays:

  • 5% cash back on the first $25,000 in combined purchases each year at office supply stores and on phone, internet and cable services
  • 2% cash back on the first $25,000 in combined purchases at gas stations and restaurants each year
  • 1% cash back on all other spending

There’s an introductory APR of 0% on Purchases for 12 months, and then the ongoing APR of 15.49% - 21.49% Variable APR. The annual fee is $0.
