Chase Ink Business Preferred Application
Back in August a couple of weeks before the Chase Sapphire Reserve was set to come out, an application link briefly surfaced for the card before getting pulled. During the brief hour or so that app was widely known about, many people (including myself) applied and were approved despite 5/24. Initially there was no landing page showing the bonus, so it was a bit of a gamble and those who took it ended up winning.
Fast forward to today and a link for the new Chase Ink Business Preferred card has surfaced as well. It too does not have a landing page nor a guarantee of a bonus. I would suspect it will have the same 80K bonus as has been announced, but there is no way to guarantee that. Here are the app links via Reddit:
5/24 Being Enforced?
As of now several people on Reddit have reported that their applications have gone into pending status. In fact, I didn’t see one case of an instant approval which could indicate that 5/24 is being enforced, but it is too early to tell. One poster did say they were denied for having opened too many new cards in the past two years so my hunch is 5/24 is in play. I highly suggest reading through that thread if you are interested in applying.
The Ink Business Preferred is supposed to be released on November 14 according to leaked information, so this app has surfaced a full 11 days in advance. No doubt Chase will have another popular card on their hands, especially with the 80k bonus, but it remains to be seen if this will be a repeat of the Sapphire Reserve craze! I personally would wait for a landing page before applying since there doesn’t appear to be a reason to jump on these early links if they aren’t avoiding 5/24.
