Our Review

When you get the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card, for a limited time, you’ll get a 100,000 points bonus after spending $3,000 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.

The Reasons We Like It

  • A big signup bonus of 100,000 IHG points when you spend $3,000 in the first three months
  • You’ll have an opportunity to earn an extra 5,000 bonus points when adding an authorized user and making a qualifying purchase in the first three months.
  • Get your fifth night free when you use your points to pay for a 4 night award stay.
  • Complimentary Platinum Elite status from your card gives you benefits like late check out and upgrades.
  • Free night award for up to 40,000 points every year on your account anniversary.
  • Use your points and anniversary credit for free  nights at hotels around the world including InterContinentals, Crowne Plazas, Kimptons, EVEN Hotels, Indigo Hotels & Holiday Inns.
