Business card and 5/24 info:
This is a business card, but you may already have a business that needs a card to keep track of expenses. For example if your name is Joe Smith and you sell items online, or if you have any other side business and want a credit card to better keep track of business expenditures you can open a business credit card for “Joe Smith” as the business. You don’t need to file any messy government paperwork to be allowed to do that. Just be sure to select “Sole Proprietorship” as the business type and just use your social security number in the Tax Identification Number field.
If you have business paperwork you can apply under your business name. Otherwise, it’s critical to just write your own name as the business name if you are just applying for your own small business as a Sole Proprietorship that doesn’t have any business paperwork. You can then send in bills in your own name for verification.
If you’re like me and you run more than one business, you can signup for multiple of the same card for each business to manage each businesses expenses separately.
All Chase cards appear to be subject to 5/24 restrictions, meaning that you are not likely to be approved if you have been approved for 5 or more consumer credit cards in the past 24 months. Note that the Chase system automatically counts cards like authorized user cards and store cards as cards that count towards 5/24, but if you explain to Chase that those cards are merely authorized user cards or store cards they can manually approve you for a new card. You can check your credit report for free at the federally authorized annualcreditreport.com to check how many accounts are shows as being open in the past 24 months.
However, it’s important to note that business cards from most banks, including Chase business cards, do not get added to your 5/24 count of recently opened cards. That’s because business cards from most banks don’t show up on your personal credit report and the 5/24 count is based off of your personal credit report. That means that applying for these cards won’t “hurt” your 5/24 count.
Another benefit of the card not reporting on your personal credit report is that when you spend money on personal cards your credit score will be hurt even if you pay your bill on time. A whopping 30% of your credit score is based on credit utilization. You can pay off your card bill before your statement is generated to avoid that, but that takes effort and laying out money well before you have to. Additionally it’s good to have the statement close with a couple dollars to show the card is active and being paid every month. On an business cards from banks like AMEX and Chase it’s just not reported, so you can wait until the money is due without it having a negative effect on your score. That also means if you close the card, it won’t have an effect on your credit score.
You’ll need to spend $10,000 on this card within 3 months.
You can pay your federal taxes for a 1.87% fee. If you overpay your taxes you can request a refund or apply it to your next year’s taxes.
That’s a no-brainer as you’ll earn 2.5% on a tax payment that’s $5,000 or more, so you’ll come out ahead on that, not even counting the signup bonus.
My local natural gas company allows me to prepay up to $1,000 on a credit card for a $1.65 flat fee. That’s a great way to earn miles and help meet a spend threshold. My electricity supplier allows me to pay with a credit card for free as long as I am enrolled in autopay.
See this post for more ideas on meeting a credit card spend threshold.

If you pay your cell phone bill on the card you cell phone will be insured from damage, theft, or involuntary and accidental parting until the end of the calendar month following the payment.

Visa Savings Edge:
All Chase Ink cards are eligible for additional cash back via Visa Savings Edge.
That means you can earn points plus cash back at ParkWhiz, Chevron, AutoZone, Boost Mobile, MailChimp, Microsoft, MGM hotels, Wyndham hotels, and more.
Dan’s Quick Thoughts:
If you make large purchases or tax payments and want cash back without jumping through any hoops, the Chase Ink Premier is an excellent card to have.
If this would earn transferable Ultimate Rewards points, it would be a must-have, but sadly the cash back and points on this card can’t be transferred to other cards or redeemed at a higher value.
If you want to earn a large signup bonus on a business card with points that can be used for cash back or mileage transfers, consider the Chase Ink Cash (75K points or $750 for spending $7.5K in 3 months), Chase Ink Unlimited (75K points or $750 for spending $7.5K in 3 months), or Chase Ink Preferred (100K points or $1,000 for spending $15K in 3 months).
While the Ink Premier’s $1,000 signup bonus is obviously worth well more than the fee, in subsequent years you’ll need to spend $39,000+ on large purchases annually to come out ahead of no annual fee 2% cash back cards like Citi Double Cash, though that is a consumer card that may also have a smaller credit line and spending will count against your credit score on that card. Plus, the Ink Premier card has no foreign transaction fees, versus 3% on the Double Cash card that makes it worthless for spending abroad.
In the business card space, the Capital One Spark Cash Plus has a $150 annual fee with no foreign transaction fees, though you’ll only earn 2% cash back with that card, making the case for Chase Ink Premier fairly easy if you just want to maximize cash back.

Different route than cap1……spark cash plus had insane SUB so everyone got it chase offering 2.5% but nothing close to the SUB wonder which one wins out
Short-term vs long term.
Also, Spark cash plus required $50K spend for that bonus.
Cap one is transferable this is straight cash back…
Sticking to my capital one card…
Yup, just depends on what your goals are.
If you want transferrable points that can be cashed out, stick with Double Cash or Spark.
If you just want cash back and make large transactions, get this card.
What kind of credit limits do they give for this? I have the American Express Platinum and the Capital One Spark and the limit fluctuates between 40k-70k on the Amex and the Spark it fluctuates from 5k to 50k. Will this card be more stable with the limits and what range are people getting? I need high.
What is SUB?
Sign up bonus
Did you specifically write $1000 because this doesn’t convert to UR points?
Why wouldnt it convert, is this the only chase card that does not earn UR points? Never heard of such a thing with Chase. Do you think they might allow transfers in the future?
Yes, this is a special carve-out that doesn’t allow conversions.
No idea if that will ever change, but if it does I’ll be sure to write about it.
Can you post a link where it shows TC that they don’t convert? Not doubting you, it just is not implied in the offer link. Seems the same as the others
JJ got the card and confirmed that there’s no combine points option for this card.
Chase has confirmed this to me as well.
This should be the first line in your post. It’s sort of buried below. Not good for the A.D.D. crowd.
“If this would earn transferable Ultimate Rewards points, it would be a must-have, but sadly the cash back and points on this card can’t be transferred to other cards or redeemed at a higher value.”
The entire post talks about cash back, not points.
Every other card post with transferable points mentions points.
Can this be product changed or downgraded to a different flavor INK to thereby make the points transferable?
Good question. Following…
If anyone tries, let us know.
Though most reps won’t allow changes within the first year, so it may be a while until we get a useful data point.
Hi, Dan are you sure the points are not transferable. I called and ask if it can be transferred to the sapphire reserve and they told me it can
First you wrote 2.5% everywhere the next line 2.5% everywhere on $5,000+ is it any amount or $5k+?
Where did I write that?
The title said (up to) 2.5% back but did not mention on $5k+, so maybe that is why
Can’t put an entire post in a title, that’s why it says up to and there’s a post to explain.
Can points from other Chase cards be transferred to this one to cover large travel purchases?
This card’s points are worth 1% cash back. There would be no reason to ever do that.
Is the cash back in form of a check or it’s a refund to your card?
If you value Amex points at 2% or chase points at 2.25% this card blows it out of the water for very large purchases, correct?
If you just want cashback, sure.
What I understand this card is only worthwhile if your transactions are 5000+ otherwise stay with the business unlimited and transfer the points to sapphire reserve
To be covered on the Cell protection do you need to pay the entire bill with this card or can you just pay a portion?
Hi, Can the points of this card be transferred to the sapphire reserve credit cart and when redeemed for flights receive an additional 50 percent on top of the 2.5 percent?
“the cash back and points on this card can’t be transferred to other cards or redeemed at a higher value.”
Being that the strong benefits outlined in this post regarding this card is the 2.5% cash back on purchases $5,000+, can anyone confirm that they are actually giving high credit limits. My credit score is 775. I signed up for a CO Spark card with you Dan, that had a 50k spend bonus and 2% on all other purchases. It turned out to be a scam deal, as they never gave me high enough limits at once to reach the spending threshold. When I have a vendor to pay for 50k, I can’t split up the purchase into 3 credit cards. So I never used the Spark card as I intended. Will I have this issue with this card as well or do they actually give very high credit limits?
I know multiple people/businesses that got very high limits over 50K.
for me they allowed by now over 100k
I applied for this one. Got approved on the spot – 24k. I also applied for Ink Business Unlimited and got approved – 16k. I then took off 9k from the Ink Business Unlimited and put it on the Premier leaving me with a credit limit of 35k. However they declined a 30k charge. Really embarrassing to get declined by vendors. Anyway I called them and they have no idea what is going on because the credit line is saying 35k in total but the available credit limit has not updated from 24k to 35k. Dan, I asked before I opened the card specifically about these credit lines. Please advise me.
Do you recommend this card over business Unlimited Ink for regular purchases?
I just applied. Chase pulled my credit.
If I already have a Chase Business Plus Ink card and I cancel it, hw long to I have to wait to reapply for the Ink Premier card to get the bonus ?
You don’t need to cancel that to apply.
I think you can transfer points from this card from the research i did can you confirm this
Dan – Correction to the math in the post. (I think you multiplied 19,500 x2, instead of dividing by 2).
2% of $9750 is $195.
2% of $39,000 = 780.
to justify/cover the $195 fee you need to spend $9,750 (not $39,000).
Given that you can’t get 1.25 or 1.5 cents of value per point received, this is still equivalent
to getting 1.33 UR pts/dollar (1.33 * 1.5 = 2) or 1.6 UR pts/dollar (1.6 *1.25 = 2) UR points per dollar, spent, on all purchases (after the first $9,750).
That said, Ink Business unlimited offers 1.5 UR points/dollar on all purchases, with annual no fee, (so seems likely to be more attractive to many).
Math is correct comparing with other cards that do not have an annual fee that give 2% vs this that gives 2.5% on large purchases

Is there a limit on the cashback?
