With "getting $1000 in 3 months" is that in the first 3 billing periods? Or actually 90 days? My january bill is on Jan 6th. But i won't hit my spending requirement for another few days here...

I think its 3 months from the day you were approved. At least this is the case with Citi credit cards, and they're pretty strict with not giving grace periods.... You may want to call/write Chase to get a definite deadline.

Consider pre-paying your bills to meet the spending limit... I find that I can do this for my electric, water, phone, cable/internet.

Does the 80k offer count for both the Visa Signature AND the Visa Platinum? My last Chase approval was for a $5k limit at the beginning of November so I'm not sure if I will get approved for another Visa Signature.

Call or write Chase to confirm your exact date. For my new Chase Sapphire, I was given 103 days from the date of approval. I don't know if it is the same for the IHG rewards card.

With the 10% rebate on redemptions, I assume it's after you actually complete the stay? Not after you book them? Is it an unlimited amount of points (i.e. if use 1mm points do you get 100k back?)

You get the rebate after you complete the stay. In my experience the rebates have usually come about 3-4 weeks after my stay. I have no idea if there is a limit on the rebates.

So has there been any confirmation that the new IHG card is different from the old PC card? Can I get the 80k signup bonus if I already have a PC card?

I got approved for the card and for the 80k pts (confirmed) late in December. My first statement just closed and I had $900 or so in spend. Just met the $1000 spend requirement today. I am assuming I will have to wait until the close of my 2nd statement to receive the bonus points? If so, that stinks and I should have done a better job of meeting the spend sooner.....

Welcome to FT!

The wiki at the top of this page (and every page in this thread) answers this question & various other FAQs. In general, the wiki for any given FT thread (or the first post, if there's no wiki) is a good source of collective wisdom.
