Am I Eligible for Chase Ink? Is One Easier to Get?

Postby CalAlumnus13 » Fri Mar 07, 2014 3:47 pm

I'm a full-time employee as my day job, but around campaign season I do a little political consulting on the side. I basically provide advice to candidates, and then help manage grunt work like precinct walking and phone banking. Those two involve purchasing office supplies, which I'm reimbursed for. I'm paid as a 1099 contractor. However, I don't have any 1099 income from last year since it was an off-year. I will have some this year.

Do I meet the qualifications for a Chase Ink card? It would be great to get 5x UR points on reimbursed purchases. If I do, is one of the Ink products easier to be approved for than the others?

you'll have to use your own name as the business entity, but i don't see why not if you want the ink card. there's no hard requirement like an LLC
