A. As of early March 2014, the status of the 80K Visa offer is uncertain. Although the first link in post #1 of this thread (https://www.mychasecreditcards.com/ihg/inhotel80k) still takes you to a working application page, the latter is not the original application page for this offer. Further, the current application page contains no details of the offer to which it relates, and some FTers reported in early March 2014 that they received a 60K offer when applying through this link. If you apply through the link above after March 8, please report in the thread which offer you receive.
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?
[Update: $1000 spend now required. Seen on PC website & personal reports in this thread.]
I know Chase has been targeting people with 80k points offers and there has been a public 60k points offer since the crack the case promotion. I created this thread because I think I found a link for what might be the non-targeted
The application page doesn't say anything about 80,000 points. The link is what I got after watching the visa promo video.
80,000 bonus points after first use.
Free night every year at any of our hotels. (You need to call 1-877-318-5890 after your anniversary date to redeem it)
5 points per $ spent at our hotels
2 points per $ spent on gas,groceries and dining
1 point per $ on everything else
10% points rebate on any redemptions. (These post automatically after the statement date)
No fee 1st year, then $49.
No foreign transaction fees.
If you are thinking of applying for the PC card it might not hurt to try using this link. In case, this is a targeted offer you can always ask for Chase to match the public 60k offer: Landing page and Application page
Edit to add: Read posts 62 & 72. Two have applied and received confirmations that they would get 80k.
You can send a secure message to bump the bonus if you got the card within the last 3 months. Sending a secure message with the links works better than calling. This was my experience with bumping the CO card bonus too. Read post 79 for a confirmation of bonus bump.
As pointed out in post 27, you must click the legal disclosures button before you can submit the application.
Make the first purchase during a statement cycle which ends on/after 1/1/2012 and get platinum status until 31/12/2013.

Programs: Priority Club Platinum & Ambassdor, Hilton Honors
Thanks for the links. I was planning on getting my wife a card in the next month to take advantage of 60K points and pretty much Platinum status for 2 years as she would 1st use it in January so might use the link if she doesn't get a targeted offer within the next month.
The free night a year definitely pays for the annual fee of $49 (waived 1st year)
You can convert 10,000 points into 2000 miles but its not a good value. Also you can earn tons of points for every stay if you register for the promo codes mentioned in the master thread in the IHG forum.
