    I know Chase has been targeting people with 80k points offers and there has been a public 60k points offer since the crack the case promotion. I created this thread because I think I found a link for what might be the non-targeted

    80k offer

    which redirects to

    Application Page

    The application page doesn't say anything about 80,000 points. The link is what I got after watching the visa promo video.

    If you are thinking of applying for the PC card it might not hurt to try using this link. In case, this is a targeted offer you can always ask for Chase to match the public 60k offer: Landing page and Application page pc80k.png

    I believe it is still targeted. When I go to the Visa promo video page, I see an offer for 60K.

    Do you have the promotion code for the video?

    Thanks.

    I guess I didn't explain this in my post. It doesn't matter what you are shown after you see the video. Think of the link as a secret invite for a party. Once you know the location, you can try crashing the party.

    Here's a side by side comparision of the two offers you see at the end of the video:

    The source code is how Chase will identify which offer you applied for. Once you have the source code for the 80k offer you should be all set. Again, it doesn't matter what you see at the end of the video.

    Gary, there was a thread in FT where someone was offering the promo codes by PM. I think it was shut down because they were meant to be handed over to guests by the people at the front desk.

    Are you sure the codes aren't specific to the person?

    It would be great if they weren't. I have been waiting for my 80k offer.

    Are you talking about the video promo codes? Those are just one-time use codes and not tied to your acct in any way.

    A posted mentioned this in the FT thread. The legal disclosures on the application page have some interesting codes on pages 3 and 4. Page 3 deals with the Visa Signature version and page 4 deals with the Platinum version. Look at the no_preset_spending flag.

    Some interesting fields:
    [component_code = LGC36022]
    [campaign_id = 54285]
    [source_code = DLPX]
    [offer_idseq = 363440]
    [campaign_desc = 08/24/11 Internet]
    [expiration_date = 08/24/2012]
    [solit_req_flg = 0] (This is the part about the offer being targeted. No way to be sure whether 0 means yes or no.)
    [credit_line = 1000]
    [maximum_credit_line = 25000]

    Some of these values should be useful in getting Chase to bump the bonus in case the offer is truly non-targeted.

    I sent Chase a message today to try and bump the bonus, using the codes in FT. I'm crossing my fingers.

    Finally bit the bullet on this one...the 80k will be great on top of what I have now for either IC BOB or DPS. :) Now wish I would've done the Chase Sapphire Preferred since I have a Best Buy purchase I could make for Black Friday with the 10x bonus on Friday that would've netted 15k points. Oh well... :)

    If you wait until Jan to make the first purchase, you can have platinum status until dec2013. If you do it sooner and your statement closes in Dec, then you will have platinum status only until dec2012.

    Good point--however, until PC Plat actually means something like SPG Plat or Hyatt Diamond (for instance), then I really only care about the points for future IC use. :) Cheers and Happy Holidays!

    You can make purchases in December as long as your statement date is in Jan. That's what I did last December.

    At a recent stay I was given a refrigerator for free and breakfast for free - both valuable for me.
    Also, PC Plat has brought me status matches in Choice, Club Carlson and Best Western; and each of those has given some perks when staying with them, as well as extra points for my stays.

    A fridge?? That would be awesome!

    Don't get me wrong, there are some benefits to PC Plat--just not top tier level benefits like other programs, IMHO. But if they throw a fridge in for PC Plats, well I guess I'm going to frequent more PC properties now. :D In the end, it's all about making the 80k bonus points work best for each of our own travel habits!

    Amen

    P.S. I decided to let them keep the fridge. It wasn't worth paying the extra baggage fees on the flight back home. :p

    A couple posters on FT have confirmations that they would be getting 80k points after applying through the link I posted. One bump success too.

    Update regarding bump request:
    Dear alohastephen,

    Thank you for contacting Chase regarding your Priority
    Club credit card account.

    The video promotional offer comes directly from Priority
    Club and not from Chase.

    You will need to call Priority Club directly for
    information regarding this offer. You can reach them at
    1-888-211-9874.

    Thank you,

    E-mail Customer Service Advisor

    :confused:

    How did you get the status matches? I'd love to match PC Platinum to Carlson before my stay to get 50K points.

    Thanks!

    Just send them an email and attach your PC statement or some other proof of your status.
    If you wait to do your booking until after you get your status match, then you will receive an extra 1000 bonus points for the booking and an extra 10 points per dollar for the stay. Most of the time, they are quick.

    Welcome to Milepoint!
    PC's airline conversion rate is not good. 60,000 PC points will give you only 12,000 USAir miles.
    You can find more info on the conversions here:

    Yes, I applied through the link and received an instant approval. Received card. Called number to verify I had received card. CS advised I would receive 80k after first purchase. First purchase was a nice cold beer at a place that participated in PCR Dining :)
