Targeted Chase IHG 80K Link Found – My Approval Story
I wrote about the speculation surrounding Chase’s IHG card earlier today. I was debating whether or not I should sign up for the card. The bonus was only 60,000 IHG points plus a $50 statement credit. I was clicking around IHG’s website when I located a link for 80,000 points but no statement credit.
I value 20,000 points at around $120 so I will take the points over the $50 but you have to make your own decision on that.
The offer came up when I was logged into my IHG account and was on IHG’s front page. Make sure to attempt the offer while signed in or go to IHG’s home page and see if it shows up there.
See John’s comment below. He says it is possible to call Chase and get the 80,000 point offer over the phone if you aren’t targeted. People have reported success being matched to 80,000 if they recently signed up for the 60,000 point card.
The offer is as follows:
- 80,000 Chase IHG points after spending $2000 in 3 months of cardmembership
- The $49 annual fee is waived the first year
This is superior to the 60,000 point plus $50 statement credit offer I talked about earlier.
Finding the increased offer pretty much got me off the fence and I applied right away. I was instantly approved but with only a $2,000 limit. I already sent Chase a secure message to move $8,000 from one of my other Chase cards to make the limit $10,000.
This card puts me at 3 personal cards and 2 business cards with Chase.
This is a great offer if you are able to get it to come up. If you were debating whether or not to sign up for the card at 60,000 points this should help make that decision a little easier.
