DDF user yakov116 first reported a few weeks ago that the Chase Ink Bold card was being discontinued based on what a manager in a Chase bank branch told him.
The card was still available in branches after that, but I just called around to a few branches that have Sunday hours in various cities and they all confirmed that the Ink Bold card is being phased out and is no longer available in-branch.
But if you want to get an Ink Bold card this may be your last chance to get while it’s still being offered online. The difference between Ink Plus and Ink Bold is that the Plus card is a credit card and the Bold card is a charge card.
Being a charge card, the Ink Bold offers a flexible spend limit that adjusts based on your usage. You can also exceed that flexible line by a lot and still not have an issue running a charge through.
Sad to see another option go, but it seems like this may be the last chance to get a charge card from Chase.
