This is a quick post because these two deals are time-sensitive.
1) Amex has released an offer on Staples.com where you get $20 statement credit on purchases of $100 or more. The easiest way to maximize it is to purchase a $100 Visa gift card with $7 fee and free shipping. Of course, check out various online specials. Staples usually has good deals on paper towels and other household supplies. If you have several Amex cards, make sure to open separate tabs before saving the offers in your profile. You can also save them via Twitter by sending out #AmExStaples hashtag. Make sure to connect card to your social networking profile first.
Valid online only. Valid only on US website. Not valid on purchases shipped outside of the US. See merchant website for shipping policy. Some merchants may not ship to all areas.

2) An update: According to Doctorofcredit, the official application links are dead, but personal referrals are still working (for now).
It looks like the application for Chase Ink Plus business card may be gone today or tomorrow. So, this might be your last chance to pick up the sign-up bonus of 60,000 or 70,000 points (the last one is available in branch). Keep in mind, it’s subject to 5/24 rule.
Here are the details of the offer:
- Earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $5,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. That’s $750 toward travel when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards®
- Earn 5 points per $1 on the first $50,000 spent in combined purchases at office supply stores and on cellular phone, landline, internet and cable TV services each account anniversary year
- Earn 2 points per $1 on the first $50,000 spent in combined purchases at gas stations and hotel accommodations when purchased directly with the hotel each account anniversary year
- Earn 1 point per $1 on all other purchases—with no limit to the amount you can earn
- No foreign transaction fees
- Annual fee of $95 is waived for the first year.
The minimum spending requirements are quite high, but it’s definitely a very good deal. I recommend you only apply if you have a legitimate business. If you stop by a branch, they may have an offer of 70,000 points. The online offer is 60,000 points and does pay me commission. Many reported success in getting Chase to match to branch offer via secure message, but YMMV. (hat tip to DoC)
