Statement just hit. 80k points listed on it. Just checked the IHG website and I'm still listed as a Platinum member, so the churn is complete.

I assume that when you canceled the Visa in March, the card was not converted to MC yet?

I canceled husband's Visa on March 27th when it was still a Visa showing online. Yet, overnight, a MC showed up albeit displaying the message of "this account is closed...." Just a day short in taking action.

Correct. I got the cancellation in just before the conversions hit.

We got screwed on wife's, as I went to cxl the end of month and saw new MC acct already there. Shouldn't have believed the date they told me as they converted online a few days early and cost us 80k

Did you create a new IHG #. I used my same IIHG number.

Any idea how long we keep Plat status after closing the card?

Used the link last week for my husband's account. He was approved and confirmed the 80k bonus through secure message.

It depends. Bear in mind that one used to be able to earn status via earning points, including Chase signup bonuses. I earned an 80K bonus back in late 2012(ish) & still have Plat status despite closing my card account last year.

Interesting. I canceled my Priority Visa 5 weeks ago, hoping to get the bonus for an IHG MC in the near future. So I assumed I would no longer be Plat. But I just checked, and I've got just under 7K points, and the website still lists me as Plat. I rarely pay to stay with IHG, I mainly use our 2 free nights from our ccs, and my wife couldn't be bothered to cancel her card in time to avoid being converted to MC. Since she will be staying Plat due to her cc, it's not really a concern for me. It does make me feel good about IHG that they didn't just dump me from status though. IHG is so much nicer than Hilton.

[QUOTE=AnInfrequentFlyer;22498261]The 80,000 point offer exists for the MasterCard here:

https://visa1000.priorityclub.com/

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.

Used your link for video and SAMPN3YAA39 promo code. Stated i already received my 1k bonus points. 80k bonus MC application popped up, applied and received instant approval.

Approved today and checked my chase account. Already have my credit card number in new account.

Cancelled my IHG visa in late March just before my Visa card was supposed to be converted to MC.

Will let you know if I receive the 80k bonus.

How long for rebate on redemptions to post?

How long should it take for the 10% rebate on redemptions to post?

I redeemed 70000, but there was no rebate on redemptions (7000 expected) with the next IHG Chase statement.

Or, is there a requirement to first complete the reward night stays before the rebate is made? My stays are not until October 2014.
