Just Applied for a Chase Ink Bold Card

…and not the Chase Ink Plus. There are rumors that the Ink Bold is going away, and I’ve never had a Chase Ink card, so I figured I might as well try for the Ink Bold.

Yes, everyone is screaming about the Ink Plus right now. 70k UR points is a lot. But they’re not quite as valuable to me as they were in the past since United has devalued, which is why I haven’t rushed to get any of these cards. And while I don’t have any foresight into whether or not the 70k points offer will come back for the Ink Plus, I’m pretty confident that we’ll see 60k point bonuses again, so getting an incremental 10k isn’t that important to me rather than getting an incremental 50k if the Ink Bold were to disappear as a product prior to me ever getting it.

After applying, I got a decision pending screen, so I called the business reconsideration line (1-800-453-9719). The rep didn’t ask any questions–she just put me on hold for a couple of minutes and then came back to say that I was approved. This is possibly because the only Chase card that I have left is the no annual fee Chase Freedom, which I scarcely use unless the 5% category is something that I normally spend lots of money on (i.e. only when it’s restaurants).

And no, I didn’t use anyone’s referral link. Does that make me a bad blogger?
