I recently wrote about how Chase was having an offer for a 70,000 Chase Ink Plus card last week.
It appeared to be a public offer that was available in the local branches, so I decided to write to Chase via the Secure Message center and see if they would match my current offer of 60,000 points.
Thank you for contacting us about your credit card account. We appreciate the opportunity to ensure you receive any promotional offers available for your account.
The new offer provides 70,000 bonus points after spend of $5,000 on purchases in the first three months from the account open date, however the offer does not provide an annual fee waiver of $95.00 for the first year. The offer you were booked into is a different offer of 60,000 bonus points after spend of $5,000 on purchases in the first three months and no annual fee in the first year.
If you have any further questions, please reply using the Secure Message Center.
Unfortunately, they were unwilling to grant me the 70,000 point offer, the first time around, since it has an annual fee the first year and my offer had it waived.
However, I think I’m gonna write back and ask them to switch it cause even for $95 for 10,000 extra points since I value Chase points at more than .95 cents a point, so I’ll see what they say.
Did you write Chase about upping your bonus? What was your response from them?
