How This Credit Card Delivers Even More Top-Tier Travel

With the IHG® Rewards Premier Credit Card benefits—plus stylish participating hotels around the world—you have more ways than ever to access meaningful travel experiences.


Overwater bungalows at the Six Senses Laamu in the Maldives are one of the unforgettable travel experiences that update to the IHG® Rewards Premier Credit Card making it even easier to unlock.

Looking to travel more and give your everyday spending superpowers? The enhanced IHG® Rewards Premier Credit Card announced earlier this year turns day-to-day purchases into significant travel rewards. From earning points faster to achieving status, this card from Chase and IHG® Hotels & Resorts gives you rich and immersive ways to travel the globe.

Travel-friendly rewards

Allowing IHG® Rewards Premier Credit Card cardmembers to earn points quickly while at home and on the road, the card offers many ways to rack up rewards easily including:

  • Earn up to 26X points at IHG® Hotels & Resorts
  • 5X total points on travel, dining, and at gas stations
  • 3X total points for every dollar spent on all other purchases

Making it even easier to earn points, IHG® Rewards Premier Credit Card users automatically receive Platinum Elite status which features a 60-percent bonus on qualifying stays. Plus, you can qualify for IHG One Rewards Diamond Elite status after spending $40,000 on purchases and making one additional purchase each calendar year.

In addition, each year brings a new reward with every account anniversary earning an Anniversary Free Night (with a point redemption cap of 40,000 points). The Premier card also offers the flexibility to add unlimited points from your IHG® One Rewards bank on top of your Anniversary Free Night certificate, enabling cardmembers to stay at properties above the 40,000-point level. And any participating hotel stay is an opportunity for rewards—when you redeem points for a consecutive three-night stay, you can receive a fourth Reward Night free redeemable at that same hotel during the stay.
