Chase Matching Ink Preferred 100K Offers & 80K Offer Is Still Available

Yesterday Chase updated their offer on the Chase Ink Preferred.  The offer was increased to a massive 100,000 point welcome offer but it comes with an equally massive $15,000 in spend within 3 months.  That is not a reachable goal for many small businesses, especially in these trying times.  I have some good news though, the 80,000 point offer after $5,000 in spend is still available via referral.  And if you recently opened the Ink Preferred for the 80K offer but want the 100K offer Chase has been matching people to it.

Update 4/8/20

Nick at FM puts together some interesting points on why the 80K referral offers may be going away.  So if you preferred that offer to the larger spend 100K offer then you may want to grab it sooner rather than later.

80K Offer Via Referral

If your business does not have the bandwidth to complete the new 100,000 point offer you can still get the 80,000 point offer via referral.  I am not sure how long the referrals will stay at 80K so take advantage of it sooner rather than later if you had been considering signing up for the card before these changes.  The new 100K offer is not a limited time offer so it will be here to stay for a while.

Chase Is Matching People To 100K Offer

Reader Ryan in our MtM Facebook Group let us know that he was able to get matched to the 100K offer.  The cool thing is Chase said to reach out when you finish the additional $10,000 in spend within the first 3 months. They will then add the additional 20,000 points.

It seems that this may be the best route to go.  There is a risk they stop matching people but I would sign up for the 80K offer and then ask to be matched after meeting the spend.  That way if you don’t make it all the way to the $15,000 in spend you should still get the 80,000 points from the initial offer.

Final Thoughts

This is good news for anyone that had their sights set on the old 80K offer or anyone that is sad they just missed out on the new 100K offer.  It appears signing up for the 80K offer and asking for a match to the new offer is the way to go.  You get the best of both worlds.  Unless you know that you can easily reach the spend then you can just apply for the new standard offer.
