Link: Apply for the IHG® Rewards Premier Credit Card with a huge bonus

The $99 annual fee IHG® Rewards Premier Credit Card is a popular Chase credit card that I think is worth having. The card recently got a phenomenal improved welcome bonus, and I think anyone who is eligible should consider applying with this offer.

New IHG Premier Card bonus details

The IHG Premier Card is offering an exceptional two-part welcome offer, which you can unlock after spending $3,000 within the first three months:

  • Earn 140,000 IHG points
  • Earn a free night award, valid at a property costing up to 40,000 points

As you can see, this bonus potentially has a value of up to 180,000 points. Personally I value IHG One Rewards points at 0.5 cents each, so to me the bonus is worth up to $900. Also keep in mind that nowadays IHG free night certificates can be topped off with points, so you can redeem at more expensive properties. That makes them even more valuable.

Why you should get the IHG Premier Card

With my hotel strategy, IHG isn’t my primary hotel group, but I still strategically find lots of value with the program, given IHG’s huge global footprint. There are many reasons to have the IHG Premier Card, including:

Bottom line

The IHG Premier Card has a phenomenal bonus of 140,000 IHG One Rewards points plus a free night certificate after completing minimum spending. This is among the best bonuses we’ve ever seen on the card.

I’d also argue the value proposition of this card is better than ever before, given the IHG loyalty program refresh, the ability to top off free night awards with points, plus the new up to $50 in annual United credits. This card really is a no-brainer.

Anyone plan on picking up the IHG Premier Card with this great bonus?

    Is this subject to the Chase 5/24 rule and if so do they have a Biz Version of card with same Sign On Bonus to avoid it?

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Santiago -- There is a business version of the card, which you can read about here:
      https://onemileatatime.com/news/ihg-premier-business-card/

      Both cards are subjected to the 5/24 rule, so you won't be approved if you have five or more new accounts on your personal credit report in the past 24 months. That being said, applying for the business version of the card shouldn't count as a further card toward that limit.

  2. Chesterwilson Guest

    Can you combine the fourth night free with the free night award (using additional points to top off the free night)?

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Chesterwilson -- The fourth night free only works if redeeming points, and not if redeeming free night awards, sadly.

  3. Rick Guest

    Can you apply for a premiere card if you already have the same card? I have a premiere card from April 2019.

      here is what the terms state:
      Account Opening: This product is not available to either (i) current cardmembers of any personal IHG® Rewards Credit Card, or (ii) previous cardmembers of any personal IHG® Rewards Credit Card who received a new cardmember bonus for any personal IHG® Rewards Credit Card within the last 24 months.

  4. Brands Guest

    @Lucky--any idea if the bonus free night certificate will be able to be topped off like the renewal certs?

  5. Marco Guest

    Any one an idea how for some one living in Europe can apply? All those great credit card deals are for Americans only. We never have such deals.

  6. Kris Guest

    I've had this card for years...tempting to cancel & apply again!
    The annual free night alone is worth the $99 fee.

  7. Alex Z Guest

    @ Lucky

    I'm assuming that the free night will be available as soon as the spending is complete and available for 12 months from the date it's earned?

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Alex Z -- It will be valid for 12 months, correct. Technically it can take some time for it to post, but in practice I suspect it will post shortly after the first statement closes where you complete spending.

  8. Tony Guest

    I think this is the best sign on bonus from IHG.

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ Tony -- Yep, I don't remember ever seeing a better bonus.

    2. Sam Guest

      Was wondering in the IHG Business Premier had the same offer of the free night certificate!!
