Our Review

When you get the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card, for a limited time, you’ll get a 80,000 points bonus after spending $2,000 in the first three months.

We like this card because it give you a Free Night every year on your account anniversary, and as a card holder you get complimentary IHG Platinum status — the second highest level of IHG status that gives you late checkout and free upgrades at some properties.

The annual fee is $89, but the value of the free anniversary night is valuable enough for us to keep the card year after year.
