The Ink Business PreferredSM Credit Card from Chase is a small business card with a generous rewards program that rewards spending in certain common business categories, including travel, communications, digital advertising, and shipping. Though its $95 annual fee isn’t waived during the first year, it has a juicy sign-up bonus offer that’s worth up to $1,000 upon at least $5,000 in spending within 3 months of account opening.
Chase Ink Business Preferred is great for small business owners who travel frequently, buy online advertising, and ship physical merchandise often. It replaces the Chase Ink Plus business card, whose rewards scheme was similar, if slightly less generous. It represents a step up from Chase Ink Business Cash Credit Card, a no-annual-fee small business card that rewards spending at office supply stores, communications companies, restaurants, and gas stations.
