Our Verdict

Previous best bonus was 150k points + $50 statement credit and annual fee waived. Normally we see the public bonus but with a $50 statement credit when doing a dummy booking, that isn’t the case currently (dummy booking showing 100k points + $100 statement credit). This new offer isn’t that good, I’d wait and see what the IHG Premier offers when the new changes come or if the dummy booking offer improves. Because of that we won’t add this to our list of the best credit card bonuses.

I was gonna use my spouse’s referral link to apply for the IHG Premier Card. But that shows only the 125k points & no mention of 1 Free Night as SUB. Any one had success in getting the 1 Free Night Cert as SUB using a referral link?

William or Chuck might want to update this. I had been waiting until 3/23 to apply to time the free night for spring break in future years but I pulled the trigger now because Chase pulled it from their website. No telling when it will be gone from IHG website. Those wanting this card who already have the Select should apply now.

You can still apply for this offer on the front page of IHG.com

Can’t apply for this card now on Chase.com. IHG appears a different offer via dummy booking

Applied and got a e-letter denial stating “You earned a new cardmember bonus on the same product in the last 24 months”. But it’s been at least 26 months since I received the last bonus. Anyone else had this happen?

Applied today and received “7-10 day review” message, which is usually a denial. Called recon and approved after discussing how exactly Chase counts 5/24 (a PC does count, an AU that you’re not financially responsible for does not), and offering to split an existing CL with the new Premier card.

Denied (‘too many credit cards opened in the last two years’) at 8/24.

To the point in bold in this post, according to OMAAT and a few others, when the Premier is re-released on 3/24, it will contain language that does not allow IHG Rewards Club ($49 AF card) holders to apply and obtain the SUB. So, if you want to hold both, apply before 3/24.

Hmm…Have about $3200 IHG stay planned for 6 months from now (not yet booked). 25x on that spend is 80K. Add the bonus, yields >200K points, plus the free night. Really going to have to consider this…though I’m at 4/24 and was hoping to grab another business card or two before hitting 5/24

There was a recent post of a IHG business card coming possibly March. Not sure what the bonus is gonna be. That’ll keep you under 5/24. Just a thought!
