While doing some research for another post, I came across an offer for the popular IHG credit card on Chase’s website. The offer is for 2,000 points – just for applyingThis offer expires March 31,2015.

Chase IHG

Get an extra 2,000 points just for applying

Chase IHG 70,000 + 2,000 Point Application Link

Extra 2,000 Points

The sign-up bonus itself is still the new/normal 70,000 points but these extra 2,000 points are being offered as part of the current “Set Your Sights” IHG promo. To get the bonus, you must apply through the link on this page which specifies the extra 2,000 point bonus. Also, you must have a IHG Rewards number and enter it on the application! Sign-up for an account here

The sign-up bonus requires you to spend $1,000 in 3 months to receive the 70,000 sign-up bonus.

It is not too often that you see a bonus offered just for applying for a credit card. Of course, it is not worth a hard pull on your credit just for 2,000 points, but if you were planning on signing up for the card anyway, might as well take what you can get!

Tip: Many people have mentioned that they have still been able to get the 80,000 point sign-up bonus by messaging Chase and asking about it (there is still an advertisement page for the offer though the application link is no longer working). The good part is that the extra 2,000 points in this offer are offered by IHG, not Chase, so getting switched to the 80K IHG offer through messaging Chase will not mess up the 2,000 points offered on this link.
