Chase has been going back and forth between the 60,000 and the 80,000 best offer for the Chase IHG Rewards card.
Now Chase is sending emails about the 70,000 points version of this card after $1,000 in purchases.
The landing page makes no mention of the 70,000 bonus, but I'm very confident it will work.
Chase limits the bonus to cardmembers who have not had this product in the last 24 months.
I really like this card and have had one for some time. It has given me access to a free night ANYWHERE in the IHG Rewards syste (incl. the InterContinental Bora Bora) . Plus you get 10% back on all point redemptions (i.e. a free night).
The card also has no foreign transaction fees and the annual fee is waived in the first year ($49 after that).
