A few months back I wrote about a very nice targeted offer that Kim received from the IHG Rewards Club Mastercard.
Kim had received a replacement IHG card from Chase. To entice her to start using it they sent her a bonus offer of 2,000 points after making her first purchase. This seemed like a very nice offer and easy enough to earn. I charged .25¢ to a NYC parking meter and her bonus posted to her account soon after.
At the beginning of August I also received a replacement IHG Mastercard from Chase. This replaced my existing Visa version.
I was hoping to get a 2,000 bonus points offer for making my first purchase but ended up a bit disappointed.
Along with my card, came an offer for 1,000 IHG Rewards Club bonus points.
Still not bad but half as good as what Kim had received a few months back.
I decided to hold off on activating my new card for a while in hopes that a better offer might come my way. However, with the date of my bonus offer soon coming to a close, it was time to activate and make that first purchase.
In the end, 1,000 bonus points for making a small purchase is still a solid offer, I just wish it was as good as what Kim received.
Did you receive a bonus offer from Chase when you received your new IHG credit card? If so what were you offered?
