Applied For Chase IHG Card? Don’t Forget To Ask For A Match To 80,000 Points
A lot of readers have recently applied for a Chase IHG card due to it disappearing from the Chase website and the fact it looks like they are launching a new Premier card. The best public sign up bonus is 60,000 points & a $50 statement credit. There is another offer for 80,000 points, anybody can see the landing page but clicking apply now will error out for most people. Chase has matched people to this offer (and a higher 100,000 point offer) in the past. It looks like they are again matching people to the 80,000 point offer (100,000 no longer available) so if you’ve applied recently then it’s well worth sending in a secured message and asking for a match. Datapoints of successful matches: 1, 2, 3. 4, 5, 6, 7, 8,
A few other things to note:
- When matching they will say you won’t get the $50 statement credit. In practice sometimes you still get it. I think 20,000 IHG points is better than $50 anyway, so might as well match and hope for the best.
- If you see the 80,000 offer when logged in, try doing a dummy booking and you should see the 80,000 + $50 statement credit offer.
The worst thing they can say is no, asking for a match is always worth it.
