The major question everyone would ask is can anyone applies for this business card.
Yes, everyone can apply for this card. It is a business card for small business; however, you don’t have to own a small business to be qualified for this Chase Ink Business Preferred card. Here is why. If you earn income for performing a service, or selling goods for example on EBay, you could have a small business. This can include side jobs like driving Uber, babysitter, or selling real estate. You can apply with your Social Security number. When asked to enter the EIN (Employer Identification Number), you just enter your SSN. Remember, be sure to tell the truth about your income and your business income when fill-out the application.
So as you could see, there are so many ways you could use the Chase Ultimate points and with 80,000, you could definitely cross-off a lot of things that you would love do try but haven’t been able to.
