PSA: Chase Is Matching To 80,000 IHG Offer – But It’s Slightly Different
Earlier in November we posted that some people were struggling to get matched to the Chase IHG 80,000 offer (see below). It turns out that it is still possible to get matched to this offer, but it requires $2,000 in spend instead of the $1,000 previously needed. People that tried to get matched to the 80,000 point offer with only $1,000 have been the ones being denied. Glad to see this is still around!
Update: Please read the comments, it looks like you can still get matched but the new offer requires $2,000 in spend instead of $1,000.
It’s been possible to sign up for the Chase IHG offer with a 60,000 point bonus and then ask to be matched to this 80,000 point bonus for awhile now (although you wouldn’t get the $50 statement credit), simply by sending a secured message. Reader JCM commented to let us know that he was denied for his match, I asked on Twitter and had another confirmation on denial for getting matched.
I don’t want to say that this is 100% dead as we only have two data points, but I did want to give people a quick warning. If you’ve asked to be matched on or after November 1st, 2016 then please let us know your results in the comments below. Hopefully these are just isolated cases and matching is working just fine.
