IHG Premier Credit Card 140,000 Point Bonus Offer

‘The IHG Premier Rewards Club credit card is back to offering it’s Best Ever elevated bonus offer for 140,000 bonus IHG points when you spend $3,000 within 3 months.

The annual fee of $89 is now, for the first time, also waived the first year. 

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

You could also opt for the fee-free IHG Traveler Card where you’ll get 100,000 bonus points for $2,000 in spend, but, I think the Premier is easily the better deal because of the free night benefit. and higher bonus.

The IHG Premier Credit Card Comes With Some Great Benefits

This card comes with both an annual free night certificate and the ability to get the fourth night free (up to 40,000 points in value) on an award booking, so its $89 annual fee goes pretty far if you tend to stay at IHG properties (i.e. Intercontinental, Holiday Inn).

You also get IHG Platinum status which you can use to get on the Status Match Merry Go Round (whenever Wyndham brings status matches back).

And you get the 4th Night Free on Awards. With the new dynamic pricing being rolled out by IHG, some people are getting some really amazing deals. Consider a scenario where you have 4 nights and the first 3 are 35,000 a night and the 4th is 50,000. IHG is deducting the actual 4th night, meaning you’d get 4 nights for 105,000 points, saving 50,000 points – for about a 33% points discount. If you have a lot of IHG points, this one benefit easily makes the card a winner – even if you don’t actually spend much on the card.

They’ve also added the following to the first year with this offer:

  • An extra 15 points per dollar in your first year at IHG hotels.

And then you will always get:

  • 2X points at gas stations, grocery stores, and restaurants and 1 point/$1 on all other purchases.

The earn rate on anything besides IHG spend isn’t very good, but the bonus offer and 4th night free on award stays

Card Eligibility Considerations

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
