i am really not sure, but I think it's same card. Where did u see anything about 100k cap?
One of the sites. I'm not sure of it was a cap in general or just on getting back 10% when redeeming points.

Probably for the 10% return.
I'm unaware of s/t of any other cap.

Data point:
With IHG its very hard to get compensation. Even if you do it will be very little.

Well I'm having an impossible time with chase. What happened to you.
After hard day around the USA with flights, we decided to stay just 50 min away from home with 15k points at an express.
The crib we requested was left outside door still in package. We thought at 2 AM with infant in hand, we can just go to hotel and sleep so we can have normal day ahead, but we had to be busy with assembly.
Then we saw there was no sheet.
They told me through email and on phone that since crib is not required (only if avail) so no compensation granted.
However when I called back and said that being Platinum we should have had WIFI, and was not given passcode (and didn't pick up phone) they gave us 2k.

FYI to all who have the new mastercard that was switched over.

On my letter with the new mastercard there is a note stating:

Quote
Thank You Bonus
Earn 1000 Bonus points
on your first purchase using your IHG rewards club mastercard between April 8 and June 15th.

Agreed, but I almost missed it so I figured worth posting. Still one parking swipe in NY for $0.25 still makes it worth it.

Anyone know how quick UR to IHG usually is? Been over an hour here. I thought it was instant.

How long are the free night certs valid for?
Does the stay have to be before they expire or just the reservation?

Does any one have opinion on this? I had applied IHG last year in Jan and Closed in in May 2013.  If I reapply it, whether I should put same priority club # or new one in order to get promotional bonus?

Just wanted to point out how I think the benefits of this card get overlooked. Simply opening this card gets you IHG Plat, which is their highest level status. On our trip just now, we stayed at 2 HIE and 1 CP. Without blinking an eye we got 2PM checkout when we needed it, we got free drinks and snacks upon arrival, we would have gotten free wifi if the hotels didn't offer it free to everyone else anyway. And best of all, at the CP we got upgraded to a suite! (Not sure if that had anything to do with mentioning it was our honeymoon or if it was just b/c of Plat.

Obviously, IHGs are not as nice as Marriotts, Hiltons, SPGs, or Hyatts, but it is cool to get top status just by opening up the card.

More likely that.
I get upgrades sometimes, not regularly, though. I think that the most valuable part is the free night every year
