By now, you’ve probably seen plenty of content talking about the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card, and how right now you can experience the largest ever 125,000 point welcome bonus the card has offered, after $3000 in spending. All that content can saturate a message, but this is one time where anyone who’s a fan of IHG should really perk up, because the card is so much bigger than just the welcome bonus at the moment, and there’s only one day left to play it out…

40 Points Per Dollar At IHG Hotels

125,000 points can bring some fantastic hotel nights your way, but once those are over, it’s the other features the card is currently offering which make it such a compelling value right now. For the road warriors or big holiday spenders, they’ve added something rather extraordinary: more points on everything, for the first 12 months.

The IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card gives you instant Platinum status, which means you earn 15 points per dollar spent at IHG Hotels, including Intercontinental and Kimpton as long as you hold the card, but to sweeten things further, using the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card adds 25 points per dollar for the first year, for a total of 40 points per dollar spent at IHG properties.

Yep, a $1000 stay would earn back 40,000 bonus points. That’s borderline absurd, in a really nice way, and since you’re platinum, life at the actual hotels is nicer too.

Free Anniversary Night Certificate

You’ll be earning 40,000 points for every $1,000 you spent at IHG properties all year, and each anniversary, you’ll receive a complimentary night certificate valid for any hotel that costs up to 40,000 points per night, which means you’ve got a lot of choices.

With an annual fee of just $89, that’s more than enough reason to carry the card in itself, but when you think about how many points you can earn in the first year with the increased 40x on IHG and 4x on everything else, it could be quite a lucrative year.

Oh yeah, and there’s that. 125,000 IHG Rewards Club Points is enough for so many amazing experiences, and with the news that IHG is partnering with Mr & Mrs Smith for points redemption opportunities, it means that you can even enjoy non chain hotels while using points.

It’s not hard to imagine how good using points would feel at the Intercontinental Sun Penninsula in Vietnam, or the true travel blogger special – the Maldives. Perhaps Bora Bora is a bit more original? With these points, the possibilities are pretty endless, and with 40 points per dollar in the first 12 months on any nights you do pay for, this is super compelling.

You can apply for the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card here. The offer ends tomorrow, October 9th, just FYI…
