[Expired] How To Get The Chase IHG 80,000 Point Offer

Update: The phone offer no longer works, but you can still secured message to get matched to this bonus. More information here.

The current best public sign up bonus on the Chase IHG card is $50 statement credit after first purchase and 60,000 points after $1,000 in spending within three months. In this post we will show you how to get 80,000 points after $1,000 in spending within three months. In the past it’s been possible for some to get 80,000 points + $50 by doing a dummy booking on the IHG site, so give that a try first (or log into your account and try this link).

Call & Request Offer

This was originally posted on /r/churning by 2131andBeyond. But I found an even easier method via Flyertalk user prech. Here’s what you do:

  • Call 8772740851
  • Press 1 to apply
  • It’ll repeat the offer details

Warning: I assume this is a real Chase number, but I have no way of confirming.

Apply For Lower Offer + Ask To Be Matched

This has been working for awhile now, you basically just apply for the best public sign up bonus and then call/secure message Chase asking them to match you to the higher 80,000 points. Some people have been able to keep the $50 statement credit and others have had that portion of the offer removed.

Our Verdict

80,000 points is about as good as it gets for public bonuses, some of you may want to hold out for 80,000 + $50 offers but if you have a plan for IHG points I’d just grab this offer now. I think the phone option is a much safer bet, but asking for a match might be worth the risk if you can get the extra $50. Again, personally I’d just go for the phone offer.

I saw the offer page. But when I clicked apply now, I got this:

Thank you for your interest in becoming an
IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Cardmember.
This offer is not available, but you are now being
redirected to another great IHG® Rewards Club
Credit Card offer!

Then it become 60000 points and no statement credit.

The chase “limits” on recently opened accounts apply now to co-branded cards, right?

Nope. I had opened 3 new accounts last month and several more the months before that and still got approved.

But you didn’t have to call recon right? I think my problem is because of the chase ritz carlton with its jumbo sized cl, im going to have to call. Going to call and reduce it first then hope for the best to be auto approved.

Nope. Auto approval for $5000 credit line

I know Chase has a history of matching recent applications. Any data points on this? If I opened a IHG card for 60k in late Nov 2015 is it worth calling to ask for a match?

Had some points in my account. Was trying to book a hotel in kerala,india and it showed me the 80K + $50 statement credit offer.Bummer since i already have a IHG card.
But wife account with 0 IHG points showed only 60K points. Anyways went ahead and applied for wife over phone. Hope it gets approved. Thanks Doc!

Just tried the phone number. It was for the 80,000 point offer. I got sent to pending.

About 10 minutes earlier I successfully applied for the Freedom (getting in before 5/24!), so I’m assuming that’s why? My score is in the 760’s.

Without logging into my account, I was able to get the 80k plus $50 statement offer to pop by just clicking on the link.

I called the number expecting an automated system. Slow process applying with a young woman on the other end, but she did quote 80k, annual fee waived 1st year. Now, unfortunately, I have to wait up to 10 days for their response…
