I applied for the Chase IHG MasterCard in January.  The 80,000 IHG points sign-up bonus posted in March.  Got upgraded to Spire Elite and received 25,000 bonus points as Choice Benefit.  So, 105,000 IHG points just with the sign-up bonus. :)

Folks reported their sign-up bonus from the Chase IHG MasterCard counts toward IHG elite status.  Even all the way to the new top-tier status, Spire Elite!  

And with this status, you get 25,000 Bonus IHG Points.
