This year, IHG shook up their credit card offering and upped the annual fee while cutting down the value of the anniversary night. But, now you can make that a little sweeter with the best IHG offer ever – 105,000 IHG points and a $50 statement credit! If you want to build up your IHG account for some very nice stays, this offer will certainly help with that.
Best Offer Ever: 105,000 IHG Points + $50 Statement Credit with IHG Premier Card
Link: IHG Premier Card
Here are the details on this offer:
- Earn a $50 statement credit with first purchase
- Earn 100,000 IHG points after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months of the card opening
- Earn 5,000 IHG points when you add an authorized user and make a single purchase on it
- Automatic Platinum elite status
- 4th night free when you redeem points for a stay of 4 nights or more
- Anniversary Free Night – valid at IHG® Hotels with a current point redemption level of 40,000 points or less
- Save 20% on points purchase
- Global Entry or TSA Precheck fee reimbursement
- Annual fee: $89
This card is the upper version of the IHG cards but is not worth as much as the IHG card it replaced. It loses the anniversary night at any IHG hotel and hikes the annual fee $40 more per year. Match that with the fact that IHG keeps adding the top tier hotel point requirements and the fact that the PointBreaks have been devalued and these points aren’t what they used to be!
That being said, 105,000 hotel points is still a lot of hotel points and will definitely get you at least a couple of upper-mid tier hotels and a whole lot of the base PointBreak hotels! Of course, getting $50 back doesn’t hurt either. 🙂
This card does not follow under the Chase 5/24 rule so if you were looking for a Chase card to add and are unable to get most of them, this card could make an interesting choice.
Maybe World of Hyatt Card?
However, remember that the new World of Hyatt card does not (yet) fall under the Chase 5/24 rule either. Between the two cards, I would say that the Hyatt card is the best choice if you want luxury hotel stays. Either card will give you several mid-tier nights for free with IHG offering the larger footprint so take all of that into consideration!
