Chase Ink Plus Bonus Match
Yesterday I covered the details of a new 70K offer on the Chase Ink Plus card. For now it is available in-branch only, but for many it will be worth applying even given the added effort required. But what if you already recently opened a Chase Ink Plus card with the 60K offer? Can you get the bank to match?
In the past, Chase has been fairly good about matching bonuses if you are within 90 days of account opening. While it wasn’t guaranteed, I contacted Chase yesterday after learning of the increased offer. In my short message I mentioned the 70K offer and nicely asked them to match it. It took about a day to hear back, but this is what they wrote.
Thank you for contacting Chase regarding the 70,000 sign up bonus points offer.
We value our relationship and it is important to us that we address your needs as a customer.
I am pleased to inform that I added 10,000 points to your account so that it receives a total of 70,000 bonus points. You will see this adjustment on the next statement.
That works for me. Depending on how you value Ultimate Rewards points, that little bump is worth anywhere from $100-$200. I’ll definitely take it. If you recently picked up an Ink Plus or even an Ink Cash, I highly suggest sending Chase a message sooner rather than later. As this offer becomes more widely known, I am guessing they will start to receive more match requests. It always seems better to get in early with these sorts of things. Happy matching!
