New Chase Ink Card Designs

The three Chase Ink business credit cards are getting a new card design.

New applicants will receive the new card design beginning on August 16, 2021. Existing Ink members can request a replacement card with the new design too.

These three cards will have a revamped design that’s modern and sleek:

In addition to a new design, you can earn a handsome signup bonus of 100,000 Ultimate Rewards with the Ink Business Preferred (worth $1,250 in award travel) after spending $15,000 in the first 3 months.

The $0 annual fee Ink Business Cards (the Ink Business Cash and Ink Business Unlimited) have a signup bonus worth $750 in cash. New cardholders can earn $750 cashback after spending $7,500 in purchases during the first 3 months.

These are some of the best small business credit cards.

World of Hyatt

Hyatt has another way to earn bonus travel points. New applicants for The World of Hyatt Credit Card can earn a two-prong signup bonus.

The first bonus is the ability to earn 30,000 Bonus Points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in your first 3 months from account opening. Plus, earn up to 30,000 More Bonus Points by earning 2 Bonus Points total per $1 spent in the first 6 months from account opening on purchases that normally earn 1 Bonus Point, up to $15,000 spent.

Each tier-qualifying night credit gets you closer to upgrading to World of Hyatt Explorist loyalty status. You only need 15 credits in 2021 (normally 30 nights) to have Explorist status for all of 2022.

Additionally, cardholders can enjoy complimentary World of Hyatt Discoverist status for as long as their account is open.

Southwest Airlines

Now is a great time to go for a Southwest credit card.

Our favorite is the Southwest Rapid Rewards® Priority Credit Card because it comes with an annual travel credit of $75, 25% back on inflight purchases, plus you can upgrade up to 4 boardings annually (subject to availability).

New Southwest Rapid Rewards® Priority Credit Card cardholders can earn 50,000 bonus points after spending $1,000 on purchases in the first 3 months.
