5 Days Left (My “Cromance”)


You have 5 days to get some extra tax-free cash.  I’m talking about $300.00 – $500.00+!!

Chase bumped the sign up bonus on TWO cards for a limited time.  This offer expires Monday (that’s Memorial Day, folks).  Dilly not, nor dally.

  • The Ink Plus Business card increased to 60,000 points (worth $600 cash) when you spend $5,000 in the first 3 months your card is open.
  • The Ink Cash Business card increased to $300 when you spend $3,000 in the first 3 months your card is open.

Why Get These?

Let’s face it.  I’m smitten with plastic.  My cromance (card romance) compels me to take advantage of these bonus signup offers.  I use the resulting bonus free cash to splurge on otherwise frivolous things.  Personally, I’m eyeballing a new grill and picnic table.

How To Achieve The Spending Requirement

Check out my post 11 Ways To Meet A Spending Requirement for easy, frugal ideas to help meet the spending requirement.  Once you meet “the spend” and your statement drops, your points show up (like mine did).  The points can be converted to cash.  You can have them credit your statement or send you a check.


Am I A Business?
28. Chase Ink Bold $250.StillSmall-VocationsSolePropChase Ink cards are for businesses.  But that doesn’t really mean much since you don’t have to have a corporation or LLC to get this card.  If you just said, “A what?”, don’t worry about it. You’ll apply as a “sole proprietor”.

The IRS defines a sole proprietor as “someone who owns an unincorporated business by himself or herself.”  It’s completely legal.

If you have a little business on the side, you are a sole proprietor.  Are you a babysitter, nanny, handyman?  Heck, in Hollywood, I can’t swing a cat without hitting a dog walker… or a stand-up comedian or actor for that matter.  Or maybe you sell stuff online.  Congrats you’re a sole proprietor!

In the application, for “Type of Business” choose “Sole Proprietor”. Put Your name as the business name and Your Social Security number where it asks for Tax ID.

Think about it.  If you and your significant other do this – you’ll be loaded!

  • If you get denied or want an answer after you apply, call the Reconsideration Line (800) 453-9719
  • Will your credit score drop if you apply for new credit? FICO says, “If it does, it probably won’t drop much.”
