The Chase Ink Preferred bonus categories are travel, shipping, advertising purchased on social media sites and search engines, internet service, and cable/phone services. Cardholders earn 3 points for every $1 spent in these bonus categories, up to a combined $150,000 spent every year. All other purchases net 1 point per $1 spent. Points never expire as long as your Ink Preferred Business account remains open and in good standing.
Only certain purchases within each of the Chase Ink Preferred bonus categories qualify for rewards. For example, internet, cable and phone services do not include related equipment purchases. Shipping purchases are limited to specialized merchants such as couriers and freight shipping companies. Purchases at office supply stores that also mail packages do not qualify. Social media and search engine advertising purchases must be made directly from the specific platform. Subscription or app purchases are not included.
The travel bonus category is much broader and includes everything from airlines to hotels, cruise ships, limousines, toll roads and more. Tourist attractions and boat rentals are among the purchases that will not earn rewards. Chase Ink Preferred rewards are worth 25% more when you redeem them for travel through Chase Ultimate Rewards.
