We are beginning to see some new offers with some big bonuses for many credit cards. Now Chase is offering their highest IHG credit card offers ever!
Chase gave us a great surprise with their largest bonus ever offered on the IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card. Even better, they are offering this card with no annual fee for the first year. That offer comes as they also announced a new offer for the IHG Rewards Club Traveler Credit Card (which already has no annual fee.) Read here 7 Reasons To Acquire and Keep No Annual Fee Credit Cards.
IHG Premier Card Best Credit Card Offer Ever!
The IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card welcome offer increased to 140,000 bonus points (the highest ever.) That kicks in when you spend $3,000 on purchases within the first three months of approval. Now, that card is being offered by Chase with the $89 annual fee waived for the first year!
You’ll earn up to 25 points total per $1 spent when you stay at an IHG hotel. Earn 2 points per $1 spent on purchases at gas stations, grocery stores, and restaurants. Earn 1 point per $1 spent on all other purchases.
Chase’s other IHG card, the no annual fee IHG Rewards Club Traveler Credit Card just bumped its welcome offer up to 100,000 bonus points when you spend just $2,000 on purchases within the first three months of card approval. That’s an increase of 33% (from 75,000) points.
Benefits of the IHG Credit Cards
This card offers several perks that you will enjoy like: a free night after each account anniversary (you’ll also receive a free night when you redeem points for any stay of 4 or more nights.) And as long as you’re a cardmember, you will enjoy Platinum Elite status.
You’ll get Global Entry or TSA Pre✓® Fee Credit of up to $100 every 4 years as reimbursement for the application fee charged to your card. Note, you can even gift that to someone.
There is a $0 introductory annual fee for the first year, then it reverts to $89.
You’ll earn up to 15X points total per $1 spent when you stay at an IHG hotel. Earn 2X points per $1 spent on purchases at gas stations, grocery stores, and restaurants. Earn 1X point per $1 spent on all other purchases.
This card comes with no annual fee or foreign transaction fees.
Chase 5/24 Rule May Apply
Applicants should be aware of the Chase 5/24 Rule. In order to be approved for any Chase card subject to this rule, you cannot have opened five or more personal credit cards across all banks in the last 24 months. You can read my detailed overview of this Chase 5/24 rule. Not all Chase cards are subject to this rule, however most cards fall within this approval rule. The rule is different for Chase business cards. If you are approved for a Chase business card, it will not add to your Chase 5/24 standing.
The IHG brand boasts about 6,000 properties globally, located in more than 100 countries. Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) is one of the largest hotel chains in the world. With 16 different brands, guests have a lot of options when it comes to choice during their travels.
IHG Brand Names:
Sure, the InterContinental, Hotel Indigo, Kimpton and Six Sense Resorts Spas are the top brands for IHG. At the same time, the range of offerings allows travelers to find accommodations at IHG properties throughout the globe.
I can’t wait to travel to Thailand and enjoy the Six Senses Yao Noi, Thailand (shown in cover photo.) IHG plans for its Six Senses brand to expand to 60 properties within the next 10 years.
And with more than 70% of the portfolio under the Holiday Inn flag, there is a lot of consistent value to be found.
With these great new offers from Chase we are seeing the highest ever for their IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card with the annual fee waived the first year. Add in a great welcome offer for their IHG Rewards Club Traveler Credit Card that already has no annual fee and you could get 240,000 IHG points for no annual fee the first year!
