Signup For The Chase IHG Premier Card And Get 140,000 Points

Limited time signup bonus:

For a limited time, Chase is offering 140,000 points for signing up for the Chase IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card and spending $3,000 within 3 months.

Comparison to previous signup bonus:

This IHG Premier card normally offers 80K signup points for spending $2,000. The previous limited time offer was for 125K points for spending $3,000.

Annual fee:

There is a $89 annual fee.

Welcome bonus terms: 

You can receive the bonus on this card if you haven’t received a bonus on the IHG Premier card in the past 24 months and don’t currently have an IHG Premier card.

You can get the bonus even if you have the IHG Select card (The Select card was discontinued last April) or received the bonus on that card in the past 24 months. Having both cards means you’ll get 2 annual anniversary nights and you’ll be able to stack unique award discounts that both cards offer as explained below.


All Chase cards appear to be subject to 5/24 restrictions, meaning that you are not likely to be approved if you have been approved for 5 or more consumer credit cards in the past 24 months. Note that the Chase system automatically counts cards like authorized user cards and store cards as cards that count towards 5/24, but if you explain to Chase that those cards are merely authorized user cards or store cards they can manually approve you for a new card.

You can check your credit report for free at the federally authorized to check how many accounts are shows as being open in the past 24 months.

Cell Phone Insurance

Pay your monthly bill on your card and you can get up to $800 per claim and $1,000 per year in cell phone protection against covered theft or damage for all phones on your plan. Maximum of 2 claims in a 12 month period with a $50 deductible per claim.

Elite status for all cardholders:

Having this card gives you Platinum elite status, which gives free internet, 50% bonus points, upgrades, welcome amenity, late checkout, and more.

Non-expiring points:

Cardmembers IHG points will not expire for as long as they remain a cardholder.

4th award night free:

When cardholders book an award stay, every 4th night will be free!

That means a 4 night PointsBreak hotel stay will start at just 15K points or 3,750 points per night!

If you have both the discontinued IHG Select card and the IHG Premier card you’ll get every 4th award night free AND a 10% rebate on award nights! That means a 4 night PointsBreaks hotel stay will start at just 13.5K points or 3,375 points per night!

Global Entry/TSA Pre-Check:

Cardholders will get reimbursed for Global Entry/TSA Pre-Check charges every 4 years. Those programs make flying so much easier!

Card earnings:

You’ll earn 25 points per dollar, which consists of 10 points per dollar on the card, 10 points per dollar from IHG for the stay, and 5 bonus points per dollar from IHG for being a Platinum elite member, which is automatic for cardholders. Bookings must be made directly on

You’ll earn 2 points per dollar on dining, gas stations, and restaurants, and 1 point per dollar everywhere else.

There are no foreign transaction fees.

Spend Threshold:

You’ll need to spend $3,000 on this card within 3 months to receive the bonus.

You can pay your federal taxes for a 1.87% fee. If you overpay your taxes you can request a refund or apply it to your next year’s taxes.

My local natural gas company allows me to prepay up to $1,000 on a credit card for a $1.65 flat fee. That’s a great way to earn miles and help meet a spend threshold. My electricity supplier allows me to pay with a credit card for free as long as I am enrolled in autopay.

Annual free night:

Update: IHG now offers dynamic pricing in the US, in general most of the hotels below are still valid with anniversary nights. Many additional hotels also work for anniversary night usage when they are bookable for up to 40K points!

I signed up for this card when it was 125,000 do you believe they would match it?


Just spoke with Chase. They would not match. Opened my Card December 10, 2019 with a sign up offer of 125k


Hey Dan,
Do these points have the same value as reserve points? And are they transferable to the reserve card?


Can these points be redeems for account credit or transferred to another card. What are these points worth if I don’t stay in hotels


So say someone would for some silly reason want to actually pay for Global Entry, this card’s annual fee is $11 less than Global Entry cost and will cover your cost of Global Entry.
…And you get some free hotel nights

That’s not a bad deal.


you pay for global entry once in 5 years. annual fee is every year………


I’m jealous of this offer and love this card. I get 4 nights at intercontinental century city (LA) for 50k a night but with the free night it’s 37.5k a night on avg. (plus with select I get 15k back)
Also an amazing indirect perk is to use the platinum status to match with Wyndham/Caesar for Atlantis deal.


will these points/ program take me in any way to high end 5 star hotel?

Shaul Yaakov Morrison

The Intercontinental line are 4.5 star hotels, though many are a bit dated.


compare to the mariott program, like st regis, etc.?


There are some very nice Intercontinental properties in Asia. IC DaNang is not dated. Very much a premium property.


I signed up for this just now and was approved. Can’t wait to spend that sign up bonus!


Application site crashed. Started working again and then crashed after submitting application 🙁 I don’t know status and don’t want to apply again.

Mo Mo

Call Chase’s recon line


how long do these “limited time offers” usually last? when do we find out when it will be pulled?


if I’m waiting for a card I opened on 2/1/18 to move off of my 5/24, can i apply on 2/2/20? or do i need to wait for March?


I opened this card two days ago on the 21st, for 80,000 points, sent a match request waiting for response. Will update bl”n.


When is the annual free night reset date?


If I have the IHG Select card (49$) are you sure I’m eligible for the bonus on this card?


How does one match to other hotels or other places if this gives the highest i want my hyatt and other cards or places i go to be highest. is that possible?


Is there anyway to know when this offer will end?


im going to apply but its so annoying that they dont offer this signup bonus when you try booking a hotel on their sight. they just have the offer of a $200 statement credit. I want to book a hotel on it for this coming sunday.


Can anyone tell me if these perks include card additional card holders? Do they also get 5th night free redeeming and perks?


I don’t see any mention of the IHG® Rewards Club Traveler Credit Card with no annual fee. If you have it does that preclude this offer?

Also, if it doesn’t, does it make sense to get this as well?



Yes, i have an IHG MasterCard “Rewards Club”. Is that select? If not can i apply for this card?

Mo Mo

It’s 2 separate cards. You should be eligible for this card as well.

Adrian w Rose

Dont see any mention of air miles…..

Adrian w Rose

I found that they are worth 10000 points =2000 points for many airlines eg Jet Blue,.I called, takes 6-8 weeks to get into Jet blue, 28,000 trueblue points for $85.


How much do you value these points at?


Can I sell the points


Am I able to transfer these points to chase reserve points to get 1.5?


No! Credit card points transfer to hotels/airlines, not vice versa

beth karas

can you use the IHG points for flights? for what airlines? can you sell these points? for how much?

I Love Dan

Is this Chase points or it’s a different “currency”?


Can this card be downgraded to the free Club Traveler Credit Card

Mo Mo



How does this card compare to Marriot Bonvoy card, and it’s 100k point promotion?


Hi Dan, I saw you wrote on one of your comments to send an SM. How do you send it? I only see phone numbers on the website

Mo Mo

Log in to your account online. Click the three horizontal lines in top left (hamburger menu). You’ll see option for secured message.


What does last chance mean? Is today the last day?


@Dan Can you Re-post the article about all the deals i think with Amex platinum that are expiring by the end of the month it was posted last week i cant find it
Thank you


As someone who has a number of hotel credit cards, I’m mixed about whether or not to go for this even with the high sign up bonus. I’m seeing that a lot of hotels are often blacked out, especially the higher end ones, like Intercontinental or Indigo. I’ve also heard that they’ll be discontinuing their Point Breaks program. Still can translate to some free nights, just debating if it’s worth the pull and using up a 5/24 opportunity.


Does anyone know how easy they are with suite upgrades if you have the status from the credit card?

Mo Mo

Dan, it’s $600 cell phone insurance, not $800. I just checked it up. (I have the card.)


Thanks Dan, New to this whole points thing but just got approved for $15,000 credit line, can’t wait to take my wife out for our anniversary


POINT BREAKS discontinued


how do I know I applied on May 2 did I get 125 or 140k




We have received your request for a Chase credit card. We’ll let you know our decision as soon as possible.“
I called Re-con
And they said just pending nothing they can do
Is there anyway to push an approval before it’s marked declined?
