Avoid this card. The point is useless. Most popular property or property near attractions have no room for points redemption.
This is actually true. I recently stayed at a hotel that goes for 250 a night. I booked with points instead. The hotel manager was very friendly and shared that they only have to accept two rooms per day for points. He showed me that IHG only paid him $50 a night for a room he would otherwise rent for $250. He said once two point reservations are done, those hotels are not available anymore.

Don't believe so.
I would love it if that were true. What gives you that impression? My impression was only some business cards are exempt.

This offer is not good since there is another offer with the same spending: 125000points + $50 statement credit.

hands down the best card from Chase. The annual free night has enabled us to stay at luxury hotels in Europe, cost up to 500 pounds per night.

Make sure you and your spouse both get this card, and ask the hotel to combine your bookings.

You are lucky if you still keep/have the old IHG card, you get 2 nights per year per person. A couple gets 4 nights total!!! which is a great deal!

I disagree. We've been using our IHG cards to stay at intercontinental hotels for the past 4 years. We always get rooms at Intercontinental hotels, but we also book like 4-5 months ahead. We like to travel in June/July, so we have to book early otherwise nothing is available, including flights, hotels, ground transportation etc.

The redemption is getting worse, not just the number of points required but also availability. There are high end hotels that I used to be able to use points but now they are not available for as far as 6 months out. Like Venetion in Vegas, Intercontinental in Jiuzhai China. I have had top tiers across Hilton, Marriott, SPG, IHG, and Hilton is the worst in devaluation and IHG is the worst in excluding hotels for redemption. Now I refuse to play the points game with these hotels and airlines, the only exception is Southwest airlines and chase ultimate rewards, the only 2 points system that don't play games with consumers

Anybody know of a way to get a referral bonus if you're an existing IHG cardholder and you want to share this offer?

Really really depends on what you do

I have used my annual chase free nights on hotel nights at least $500+ multiple times . You can find new year Eve in times square or the Venetian if you book early enough 10 month plus.

I recently used point discount 10k points for one night near Sequoia. Nightly rate was $229 plus tax.

I also was able to get 15K and 20K nights in cologne during a gaming conference where crappy $80 hotels were inflated to $400 because of the show.

I also got Platinum Elite through the older IHG card. I matched with Wydham and then with Caesars so I now have Caesars Diamond status. Yes it took about 1 hour worth of emailing and taking screen shots but certainly worth it, I don't pay resort fees anymore (but my nightly rate has increased about $20/night from what I can remember my avg rates used to be when I was Platinum at Caesars).

I have the older $49/yr card. I doubt I qualify for this offer. They don't have that card anymore. So unfortunately I won't qualify.

With hotels you got to stick to one and don't switch.

Staying nights and spending money does not pay much in points so use these cards to get a jump start for a few years and quit. You could go through years and to years of spending and not get enough points for a single night.

Also IHG has surveys which sometimes helps say you have 24,989 points and want to use 25,000.

IHG customer service rocks.
There are reports on DOC that you can get this card too (even with the old $49 fee one) as long as you are under 5/24 for credit applications and don't have this exact card.

So are UR. To get 2.0 cents/pt you almost have to fly some expensive route on business class, which most people won't to start with. If you are travelling on a budget, UR is basically 1.3-1.4 cents/point of worth overall.
With all this being said, all points can be maximized to its value if used right. Actual value is highly YMMV

UR are worth a minimum of 1.5c/pt if used via a CSR, and it's not all that tough to get 2/pt out of them via point transfers and coach fares and/or Hyatt hotel bookings


The business fares you mention get you more in the 4-6 cent a point range.



That said, the IHG cards are generally worth having for for the free night (much like the Marriott cards)- plus for the Wyndham and then with Caesars Diamond status matches- even if it's not usually worth putting any actual spend on them beyond earning the signup bonus.

I'm way in excess of 5/24 and I was approved. Plus, I believe it was mentioned on The Points Guy. I think the Hyatt card is exempt, too.
