FlyerTalk Forums Thread Wiki: 60k/70k points, no fee 1st yr, IHG Rewards (Priority Club) Visa/MC
Please read: this is a community-maintained wiki post containing the most important information from this thread.
 
Last edit by: beltway
Q. How do I obtain the 70K offer?

A. There is a new offer--allegedly available through March 31, 2015--for 70K. Landing page; application.

Benefits:
  • 70,000 bonus points after spending $1000 in first 3 months
  • Starting on the first anniversary of account opening, a free night every year at any IHG hotel. (Cert may be redeemed online.)
  • 5 points per $ spent at IHG hotels
  • 2 points per $ spent on gas, groceries and dining
  • 1 point per $ on everything else
  • 10% points rebate on any redemptions. ("Please allow 4 to 6 weeks after Reward Night stay for rebated points to be deposited into your account")
  • No fee 1st year, then $49.
  • No foreign transaction fees.
  • IHG Platinum status for as long as you hold the card.

The best long-term offer for the IHG MasterCard is as follows:
  • 60,000 bonus points after spending $1000 in first 3 months
  • $50 credit after first purchase
  • Starting on the first anniversary of account opening, a free night every year at any IHG hotel. (Cert may be redeemed online.)
  • 5 points per $ spent at IHG hotels
  • 2 points per $ spent on gas, groceries and dining
  • 1 point per $ on everything else
  • 10% points rebate on any redemptions. ("Please allow 4 to 6 weeks after Reward Night stay for rebated points to be deposited into your account")
  • No fee 1st year, then $49.
  • No foreign transaction fees.
  • IHG Platinum status for as long as you hold the card.

There is also a standard 60K offer. This is different from the 60K offer above only in that it lacks the $50 credit.

There is a Mastercard application (per post #1615) for 80K. expired on 1/22/15

(The former 80K Visa offer is no longer available. All links in post #1 of this thread are dead.)


Q. Where can I learn more about the annual free-night certificate associated with this card? How long are the certificates good for? Are the certificates revoked if you cancel your Chase card?

A. See Annual Free Night Cert from PC Visa.

Q. Once I meet the $1000 spending requirement, how soon will I receive my bonus points?

A. Bonus points typically accrue at the close of the billing period in which you incur the corresponding charges. Points should appear in your IHG RC account within a day or two thereafter.

NOTE: If you complete your $1000 required spending within 7-10 days of your statement close, the bonus may not post until the following month's statement, even if the regular per-dollar points post on the first statement. This is normal behavior for Chase and is not worth a phone call.

Q. Can I apply for this card and earn the bonus after doing so previously?

A. Possibly. If you currently hold an active IHG MasterCard, you will not be approved for a second one. (The available anecdotal evidence indicates this is also true if you still have an IHG Visa card open.)

If you have no open IHG cards
  • and your previous bonus was from an IHG Visa, you may apply for the MasterCard (and earn a bonus) with little or no waiting period.
  • and your previous bonus was from an IHG MasterCard, you must wait 24 months from the date you received the previous bonus. (NOTE: Waiting 24 months from the previous application or approval is not sufficient.)

(These complex rules flow in part from the fact that Chase has traditionally treated Visa & MC versions of a given card as different "products.")

For further information, see the wiki and related discussion in Applying for Chase Credit Cards [Consolidated].

Enter your login information and the PGFTNHNAD3 or SAMPN3YAA39. These codes may only work for targeted accounts, but they worked with with my login credentials and I already have the Visa. After watching a 90 second video you should get a screen showing 1,000 bonus points applied to your account (if you are eligible) and an offer for the 80,000 point MasterCard from Chase with the annual fee waived for the first year.

Here's a direct link to that application (it shows the MasterCard) with no mention of any bonus points:

https://applynow.chase.com/FlexAppWe...ID=&PROMO=DF01

I also was offered the MasterCard with 60,000 bonus points and a $50 statement credit when I was booking a room with IHG this morning.
Thank you!

"SPID=F7RX&CELL=6CXW" is for the 80k bonus link. It is not targeted although we can't find it on Chase's website. It works like the UA50k link.
"SPID=F7RZ&CELL=6H90" is for the 60k bonus which can be found on the Chase website.

I decided to bite the bullet to see what happens. I have the Visa version, applied last year and still under year 1. I got a "Thank you for applying. Your application requires further review before making a decision."

Some of me wonders if you should have closed the other card and then applied for the MC. Let us know, and thanks for biting the bullet

I have a few award stays coming up in May which might/might not be upgraded based on my Platinum status. So, I wanted to keep it for that remote chance. I also wanted to see if this(having Visa while applying for MC) was possible or not. I guess someone had to do it at some point, might as well be me as my contribution for some of the knowledge gained from here. I might call in tomorrow and see what they say.

Yes, but some of us are greedy that we want 2 free nights every year.

My credit report wasn't even pulled.
Did you put in the same IHG number as the previous Visa?

No, I left it blank just in case it made a difference. It didn't. They still denied me.

Data Point:

I went through the video with the codes (said they had already been used for both of them) and then got the apply now page, but it was for 60K Master Card. Clicked on the apply link, and got this:

https://applynow.chase.com/FlexAppWe...ID=&PROMO=DF01

No mention of bonus or anything on that page, but it is 60K.

Can anyone else confirm that SPID=F7RX&CELL=6CXW is 80K?

I used both codes and after each video it ended up saying 60K both I'm the video and at the end after. No sign of 80K anywhere.

Can you post the link you got for the 60K MC? Just so people can be aware when applying?

Thanks.

I just applied for the IHG credit card through the 2nd link:

https://applynow.chase.com/FlexAppWe...ID=&PROMO=DF01

I was given an immediate approval, but it didn't say for which sign up bonus. I called Chase told them I believed it was for 80k. The person told me I will get 80k points when I spend $1,000 in 3 months. Easy to do right?

So the 80k is still alive it seems!

I just followed the instructions from the visa1000.priorityclub.com link in the first post. I'll have to go through the process again to get to the link, but not at a computer right now.

Is this your first Chase IHG card? If not, do you still hold the visa version?

FWIW, I sent an SM to Chase after applying for the 60k offer and they gladly offered to match me to 80k.
