Overview

The Chase IHG card offers 5X points at IHG; 2X gas, grocery, and restaurant; and 1X everywhere else. But, since points tend to be worth much less than 1 cent each, I don’t recommend using this card for spend.  This card is good for its perks alone:

  • Annual free night e-certificate good at IHG properties that cost up to 40,000 points per night for certificates issued after 5/1/18
  • Automatic 10% point rebate on awards
  • Automatic Platinum elite status

Those free night certificates issued before 5/1/18 are redeemable at any IHG property, but those issued after 5/1/18 are restricted to properties up to 40K per night. For only $49 per year, this still a good card to keep, but not to use for spend.

FM Mini Review: This card can be a great value, though the free night is now more limited than in the past since it will be limited to hotels up to 40K points for certificates issued 5/1/18 onward.
