It’s amazing how sometimes we overlook some card benefits that have been there all along and are extremely lucrative. I already love both the Ink Bold® Business Card and Ink Plus® Business Card, which offer sign-up bonuses of 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points after spending $5,000 within three months. In addition to that, the cards have no foreign transaction fees and earn 5x points on the first $50,000 spent annually at office supply stores, and on cellular phone, landline, internet, and cable TV services, and 2x points on the first $50,000 spent annually at gas stations and on hotels.
Anyway, they’re both MasterCards — hands down the most lucrative business MasterCards out there — and I hadn’t realized that MasterCard actually has a special savings program for those with one of their small business cards.
In addition to the points you usually earn on the card, you earn cash back with the following retailers:
Those are some really awesome bonuses — 5% cash back at Avis and Budget, 5% cash back at FTD (in addition to all the miles you usually earn by going through an airline portal), 1% cash back on gas at over 19,000 gas stations in the US, etc.
Anyway, to “opt in” to these savings you have to register your card.
