From Chase SM:
Please be advised that the additional 5,000 bonus miles
for adding an authorized user is not available for
business accounts.
When somebody thanks you for a favor you've done, respond "my pleasure", not "no problem".

Yes

How about if I apply for a Chase Bold (1 business & 1 personal) , would it still be one pull ?

There's no such thing as a "chase bold" personal card. The ink bold is a business card.
With chase, if you apply for 1 consumer + 1 business, it'll be 2 pulls.

As Saver2000 said, there are no Bold personal cards, but you can apply for the Ink Bold and Ink Plus (50k UR points each).

Thanks for the information!

Which is considered the better card, ink or bold?

I'm probably going to apply for the United biz card as the first choice, because of the lower spend requirement and then get it matched to 50k.

Ink Plus is a CC, Ink Bold is a charge card.

Usually with Chase, personal + biz = 2 pulls.

Which would be better for my credit then? I'm thinking maybe Bold, because there's not credit line attached ?

I'll let the pros answer that. But your assumption seems counter-intuitive to me.
