Ongoing Benefits

Both of these cards offer a signup bonus of the ability to earn $750 cash back after spending $7,500 in the first 3 months.

The better card depends on your earning preference. The Chase Ink Business Unlimited earns 1.5% back on all purchases.

Chase Sapphire Redemption Bonuses

If you happen to have the Chase Sapphire cards, these cards also have several benefit extensions that add value to the Ultimate Rewards for the Pay Yourself Back categories.

There are also benefit extensions for the Peloton and Chase Dining benefits.


The Apple and gift card redemption bonuses can be a great opportunity to upgrade the office and get more value from stacking Ultimate Rewards. These points are usually worth more for award travel. But as business travel is still relatively sluggish, these redemptions can be a great alternative.
