I applied about a week ago and the cards came in the mail yesterday. I called to activate and was told it was the 80k offer for $1000 in 3 months. I have had the card before and cancelled almost a year ago. still have to spend the money to see if I get the points or they pull the you had the card before and are not eligible for a second bonus.

Please report back with a follow up on this. May we assume you used the same PC (or IHG now) number?

It looks to me like the evidence supports that the IHG credit card is considered to be the same product as the Priority Club one, and so those of us that signed up to the PC one before the change are unlikely to be able to apply (successfully) anew. Has anyone evidence to the contrary of this?

Did your rewards details happen to show in your chase account before your first statement closed? Just wondering, I entered my PC number when applied but shows no account details online in Chase. I did get approved just a few days before it became IHG, so maybe it's just flaky in the system.

I have both cards and did receive the 80k points bonus with the new card a few months back. Two things that may have caused that to happen:
1 The old card was opened back in 1999 in my maiden name (obviously same ssn though)
2 I did not include my priority club number on the application and they assigned me a new number. Basically I now have 2 accounts but the old account has very few points so its not an issue for me. I've been using the new one going forward.

I canceled my first Chase Priority Club card (in 2011; had to: in order to get approved for a different Chase card), reapplied less than 18 months later, was approved, and got the sign-up bonus points again. But YMMV. (Used the same Priority Club member number.)

I totally agree. No need to churn it; just keep it.

It is.
I'd rather churn it ( if possible) and rotate it in with my Marriott, Sheraton , Hilton churns

My goals may be different as I only want to get 7 -8 free nights a year in the Clearwater Beach area the first week of April every year. Staying one night at several different hotels would be a waste as I would spend half my vacation checking into and out of hotels, waiting for the room to be ready, etc

80K points for spending $1000 and no annual fee vs 1 free night ( that I have to use within one year) and paying $49 is an easy choice for me

I am going to pay the $49 this year but only because I have 3 nights booked for April and (Hopefully saying rewards are not solld out) can add a free 4th night

I agree that this card is a keeper. Me and the wife have been able to do week-long stays at some very nice Intercontinentals using a combination of 2 free night certs, 3 nights on points (mainly earned, some bought at a discount), and 2 nights cash. On average it saves us around 65% of the going rate for a week-long stay.
