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.

As i thought...
I ain't no pro, but just to elaborate: IP will give you more available credit thus lowering your utilization ratio, while IB has no CL so the CBs estimate your CL based on your largest reported balance. So unless you do lots of spending one month, and drastically decrease it thereafter, it won't improve your credit score.

Do they still match the UA explorer Biz card to 50K from the publicly available 30K offer? haven't see any reports recently.

Anyone have a screenshot of the offer? Was it a public offer?

Never matched to the business before. Just want to know what I'm talking about exactly.

They don't ask for a screenshot.

Do it the exact same way as with a personal card, just 50k instead of 55k.
