My Favorite Hotel Card

Five reasons why I consider the IHG card to be underrated as hell…

  1. It’s one of the few Chase cards that people like me still get approved for.
  2. Their Platinum status isn’t garbage. I’ve always gotten a better room with late checkout.
  3. Even when the public offer dipped, you could get the card and send a message to Chase. That extra 30 seconds bumped the bonus up to 80,000 points.
  4. Now the public offer is 80,000 and sending a message might get you matched to 100,000 points (according to reader Carl).
  5. This is one of the few cards I keep open longer than a year. Unlike Hyatt, the IHG anniversary night isn’t limited by category. I rarely say this…but it’s an annual fee worth paying.

Definitely a card worth considering if you haven’t gotten a new IHG bonus in the last 24 months. Make sure you add a user for an extra 5,000 points. Have a great weekend, nerds!
