At NerdWallet, we strive to help you make financial decisions with confidence. To do this, many or all of the products featured here are from our partners. However, this doesn’t influence our evaluations. Our opinions are our own.

Whether you earned them from a hotel like Holiday Inn or through an IHG-branded credit card, you probably want to know how much your stash of IHG points is worth.

The short answer: NerdWallet values IHG points at 0.8 cent each. This is a baseline value, drawn from real-world data, not a maximized value. In other words, you should aim for award redemptions that offer 0.8 cent or more in value from your IHG points.

Use our calculator below to figure out how much your points are worth based on this value.
