If you’re looking for free nights, the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card may be the card for you.
The $89-annual-fee card offers a rich sign-up bonus and rewards rate and a free night after each account anniversary year, plus a free reward night when you meet redemption and length-of-stay requirements.
The IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card also grants you Platinum Elite status, which means premium perks and bonus points on bookings.
The main question to ask yourself before applying is whether you’ll be satisfied with your options within the IHG portfolio. Someone seeking greater flexibility or different hotel options might fare better with either a general-purpose travel credit card or a different co-branded hotel card.
