IHG Platinum match follow up – 1,000 points just for watching a video

While this offer appears to be personalized only to me (I had a friend try it and didn’t work for him), it bears keeping in mind if you are taking advantage of the IHG free status match they offer to certain members and which I wrote about in this prior article. By using their status match, I was able to obtain Platinum status, which came handy during my stay at the Hotel Indigo San Diego Gaslamp Quarter.

A couple of days ago I received a mailing from IHG inviting me to apply for their Chase co-branded credit card, with an offer of 80,000 points after spending $1,000 in 3 months. Along with the mailing, came a unique code for me to enter at www.ihgrewards.com/selectmember for 1,000 IHG points just for watching a 90-second video.

IHGI watched the video and the 1,000 points posted immediately.

The 80,000 points offer itself is really good, and the card comes with a $49 annual fee (waived the first year) that gets you a free night certificate every year (after year 1) at any hotel in the world, well worth the annual fee. The card also gives you Platinum status. It’s just not an offer I’m personally taking right now since I have other travel plans. Regardless, the 1,000 free and easy points were a nice bonus to all the points I’ve been able to earn from my personalized Big Win promotion.

So if you’re planning on status matching from other eligible programs keep an eye out for this offer. Or if you just want an easy 1,000 points, try out for status match and hopefully you will get the same offer in the mail.
