Get Matched to the New Chase IHG Rewards Premier 100,000 Point Sign Up Bonus

Good afternoon everyone.  Doctor of Credit wrote an article this morning about a great sign up bonus on the Chase IHG Rewards Premier Credit Card.  By using this link, you can get 100,000 IHG points after spending $3,000 in 3 months + $50 statement credit after first purchase.  Last week, I signed up for the Chase IHG Rewards Premier Credit Card during my Mini July App-O-Rama, but the sign up bonus was only 80,000 IHG points after spending $2,000 in 3 months + $50 statement credit after first purchase.  The only difference between these 2 offers is the extra $1,000 in minimum spending to get an extra 20,000 IHG points, that is basically 20x IHG points / $ on the last $1,000 in spending.  I like that earning rate.

Chase is pretty good at matching increased sign up bonus offers if you ask to be matched within 3 months of getting the credit card.  Since I was approved for the credit card last week, I decided to send a secure message (SM) to Chase this morning.  I was hoping for a quick approval to my request.

Hello, a few days ago, I signed up for the new Chase IHG Rewards Premier Credit Card. The sign up bonus was for 80,000 IHG points + $50 statement credit. Here is the link I used: https://creditcards.chase.com/a1/ihg/premierplus?CELL=6S5G&cm_sp=OSMAM-6C-US-EN-RR-AI-MNR-80K-FRPN-S5G-ChasePremier

This morning, I see that the sign up bonus has increased to 100,000 IHG points + $50 statement credit. Here is the link to that offer: https://creditcards.chase.com/a1/ihg/premierplushundred?CELL=6S5W&cm_sp=OSMAM-6C-US-EN-PG-AI-MNR-100K-FT4K-S5W-ChasePremier

Can you match me to the 100,000 IHG points + $50 statement credit offer? I would really appreciate that. Thank you for your help and have a great day.

2-3 hours later, I got a response from Chase.  According to the secure message, my card is enrolled in the 80,000 IHG point offer… but if I spend $3,000 before the 3 month period ends, I can respond to the secure message and Chase will match the 100,000 IHG point offer.  So instead of directly matching me to the new / higher offer, I have to complete the higher minimum spend requirement and then tell Chase.  They will then manually credit the extra 20,000 IHG points to my account.  I guess that is not too much work.

I haven’t received my new Chase IHG Rewards Premier Credit Card yet, but I have a few large bills in mind that I could pay to meet the $3,000 minimum spending requirement.  If you signed up for the Chase IHG Rewards Premier Credit Card in the last 3 months, ask Chase to match you to the 100,000 IHG point offer.  If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.  Have a great day everyone!

    I got my card about 6 weeks ago. I’ve already spend the minimum spend of $2000 and have already received 80000 sign up bonus. Do you think they can still match??

    Do you know if they would approve even if you had the old card? I don’t want to close in case Chase doesn’t approve.

    What are the typical high bills that you pay to here to this minimum spend? Do you use giftcards.com or simon mall?

      My girlfriend is getting her masters, so I’m going to pay some of her tuition bills. That will take care of the $3,000 minimum spend requirement.

      Also, as a data point, I had not yet met the 2000 spend. They alerted me to that fact and told me that as soon as I hit 3000, to ping them back using their email confirming the upgraded offer. This is one of those rare times where I got a card and didn’t hit the low spend threshold immediately in order to take it off my to do list. Maybe that is why they approved the upgraded offer.

      Grant: do you know if you’ll get the $50 credit?

          Strange, but the language in the response to me didn’t mention the $50 even though I brought it up in my request. My wife’s response, which was based on the exact same written request, was that she’d qualify for the 100K but expressly not for the $50.

          I do have to commend Chase on the speed of the responses. Both came within 18 hours.

            The $50 Statement Credit should post on the first statement, so I will let you know if I get the $50 Statement Credit.

        They confirmed today that both of us got the extra 20K points. And confirmed NO CAN DO on the $50. Well worth it anyway. As always, thanks for the great tips. Too bad I’ll have burned through our family’s two companion passes by February. No window with school kids to take advantage of it by then. That would have been sweet.

          Bummer on the $50 Statement Credit. I’m still holding out hope that the $50 Statement Credit posts automatically. I’ll let you know if it does. My girl friend got the SWA Companion Pass but she is a teacher, so we are tied to the school schedule too.
