– Chase has released the public offer for the new 80,000 Bonus Points Chase Ink Business Preferred Card

This is an excellent offer and if you have a small business you should certainly try to get this card. Chase only lets you get 5 cards within 24 months but until now this does not apply if you walk into a branch and ask if you are pre-approved.

Warren Buffett’s company took 6.33 million shares of Delta stock, according to a regulatory filing made Monday and cited by Business Insider. Forbes reported that the shares are worth about $300 million.
