Recently, the travel forums and blogosphere exploded with “hot tips” for a short-lived special promo from Chase — 60,000 bonus points for the Chase Ink Bold business card. Just a day or two after the buzz, the offer disappeared. This represented a rare chance to get 10,000 bonus points MORE than the already coveted 50,000 point bonus for the Ink Bold card. But since the offer closed so quickly, few people were able to actually catch the short window.

But here’s the good news…

If you got the Chase Ink Bold anytime during February, March, or April, (possibly even as far back as January) it may benefit you to try and contact Chase to get an extra 10,000 bonus points via their secured message center.

That’s what I did. And it worked!

First, I logged into my Chase.com account and went to the Secure Message Center. Then, I wrote a simple message to the Ultimate Rewards Program help desk. I mentioned that I just got the Ink Bold business credit card during the 50,000 bonus offer and that I noticed a recent 60,000 bonus point offer. I basically explained that I felt like I *just missed* a better opportunity and asked if I could have the extra 10,000 bonus points since I barely missed the special offer.

My message only took a few minutes to write and send. Then, only a few hours later, I received a very friendly response confirming my request…

And just like that, I got the extra 10,000 Ultimate Rewards points. And here’s the amazing part — the extra 10,000 bonus points posted to my account immediately! Apparently, in order to qualify for this extra 10,000 bonus points, you have to contact Chase Ultimate Rewards within 90 days of opening your account. (I’m actually beginning to wonder if I missed out on any other bonus offers???)

I’m really impressed with Chase customer service these days. I also had a similar VERY good experience with my Chase Business Banker here in San Francisco. My hat is off to these guys and gals for working hard to make Ultimate Rewards an amazing program.
