The IHG card is definitely one of the best, ongoing hotel cards to have. With its low $49 annual fee, you receive a free night each year as well as a 10% rebate on points used (see: 3 Great Reasons to Keep the IHG Card). This card has been known to have the great offer of 80,000 points + $50 statement credit but I just received an even better one – 100K IHG points! Unfortunately, it is targeted. But, read below to see what the details are and what to search for in your e-mail in case you may have missed it!
100K IHG Point Card Offer [Targeted]
There was a 100K IHG point offer that came around a few months ago and it was easier to get the whole 100K points than it is this time. But, I wasn’t targeted in that one and I am targeted for this one!
100K IHG Point Card Details
Earn 80,000 points spending $2,000 on purchases in the first 3 months
Earn an additional 20,000 points when you spend $8,000 on purchases in the first year from account opening
- Earn 5,000 bonus points when you add an authorized user and they make a purchase within 3 months of account opening
- Anniversary free night at any IHG hotel
- Platinum Elite status as long as you hold the card
- Annual fee: $49 (waived the first year)
- Automatic 10% rebate on points used – up to 100,000 points per year
- Must apply by 2/15/2017
- Cannot receive the bonus if you have received it in the last 24 months and/or currently hold the card
So, the total amount of points you can get from this offer after meeting the spending and adding everything together is 115,000 IHG points plus another 11,500 points as you use those up, thanks to the 10% rebate part of the card. This is a pretty solid offer – if you were targeted.
Were You Targeted?
So, how do you know if you are targeted? First, check your e-mail and search for the words “Enjoy the benefits of Platinum Elite status and earn up to 100,000 points.” This is the subject line and should bring it up if you were targeted.
Another way to check is to login to your IHG account and then, in another tab, paste this link – https://creditcards.chase.com/a1/ihg/100KT-1Q17. If you were targeted, that should open up the application for you. To read the details of this offer, check out this link – 100K IHG point offer details.
Is this a good deal? If you were targeted, I would definitely consider applying. Even with the IHG changes on many of their nice properties in the points categories, IHG Point Breaks are still a very impressive way to realize big value. With those nights being only 5,000 points per night, you have enough for 20 nights with this offer!
Also, it is a great card to have for the annual free night. If you kept your points until your first account anniversary, you would be able to get 3 nights at a hotel that costs 50,000 points per night (if you used your free night for one of the nights) which could help to make that night more valuable than a single night someplace.
