Letter sent to cardholders without an existing membership (Thanks MC):
The Chase Ink cards come with a free Lounge Club membership that gives 2 free annual lounge visits. Here is a link to find valid lounges worldwide. Lounges include the Dan Lounge in Tel Aviv and the Art & Lounge in Newark which both have kosher food.
Unfortunately that relationship is being discontinued. As the letters above that were posted by DDF members show, existing members can use their card until the expiration date. Existing memberships will not be renewed past that point.
If you have any primary or secondary Ink cards that aren’t yet enrolled you can enroll them here by 04/30/15 and they will each get a free 1 year membership.
If you don’t yet have an Ink card yet there is still time to take advantage of this benefit. You can add free additional users to your account who can each get their own membership.
Or you can apply for a new Ink card.
The Ink Cash and Ink Plus cards are business cards, so after clicking on “business credit card offers” just scroll through the pages until you find the card offer that you’re looking for.
Of course the main benefit of the Ink cards (aside from the 20K or 50K signup bonus) are the 5 point per dollar categories good for shopping at office supply stores and on wireless, landline, and cable bills. Staples sells everything from Amazon to Whole Foods gift cards and $200 Visa gift cards that can be loaded onto a REDcard while earning 5 points per dollar.
Oddly enough in my experience you also get 5 points per dollar when using Paypal to purchase gift cards via GiftCardMall on eBay or Paypal Digital Gift Cards. If there are other places where you find yourself earning 5 points per dollar please post a comment!
Another benefit of the Ink cards is that spending on business cards (aside from Capital One business cards) doesn’t hurt your credit score when you don’t pay off your bill before the statement generates.
