Chase IHG Premier Increased Offer

Chase IHG Premier Increased Offer – 140,000 Points Up For Grabs

This is a big week for increased offers from Chase it appears.  First they launched the new United Business card with a massive 100,000 miles offer and then this huge Chase IHG Premier increased offer. This is the highest the offer has ever been on this card.

Details of the Offer

Here are the offer details:
  • Earn 140,000 IHG Rewards points after spending $3,000 within the first 3 months of card membership.
  • The $89 annual fee is NOT waived

Chase IHG Premier Increased Offer

This card falls under Chase’s 5/24 rule.

Chase also has a 24 month rule for every credit card:

This product is not available to either current cardmembers of this credit card, or previous cardmembers of this credit card who received a new cardmember bonus for this credit card within the last 24 months.

Perks of the Chase IHG Premier Card

What Is The Offer Worth

I put the value of IHG points at around 1/2 cent a piece.  That would put this 140,000 point offer at a value of $700.  Once you subtract the $89 annual fee you are left with $611 in value which is a pretty good offer.  Any time you are getting over $500 in value I think it is a worthwhile offer.  That also doesn’t include the $100 TSA or Global Entry credit.  If you use that as well the offer gets a little better.

Final Thoughts

I have stopped actively collecting IHG points because they are too hard to amass. But this offer does have me considering dipping my toes back in the water.  Remember that it does stack with the old versions 10% back in points deal too.  So you could get 32.5% off 4 night award stays with both cards.

The Chase IHG Premier is likely going to be a long term keeper since most will get more than $89 in value (the annual fee) for the anniversary night stay.

What do you think?  Does the Chase IHG Premier increased offer have you considering a dive back into the IHG pool so to speak?


  1. I don’t want to detract from the links offered on this blog but for the road warrior, IHG types the IHG member mailer offer of 125k and 40x at IHG for 12 months might be a better play for this card.

    • I have not seen that offer but yeah if you have cash stays (especially ones the company pays for) that would be the better option.
