Changes To IHG Rewards Club Card Free Night Certificate (And What They Mean)

The IHG Rewards Club Select credit card from Chase was one of the first hotel credit cards I applied for. The reason I got it was to get the sign up bonus, which paid for several nights in a London hotel. I’ve kept the card ever since because of the primary benefit the card offered – a free night at any IHG hotel issued on your account anniversary when you pay the $49 annual fee. It was almost impossible not to get your money’s worth with this certificate, unless you forgot to use it. Even a stay at any Holiday Inn Express will cost you more than that. (Note: This card is no longer open for applications and has been replaced by the IHG Rewards Club Premier Card)

How I Saved My Father $400 On A Hotel Room

I spent a few hours this week at my father’s house going over the miles, points and credit cards that he and his wife have accumulated over the last several years. You see, I was able to help them get flights in first class for their honeymoon to Southeast Asia and they’ve been hooked on collecting points ever since.

When the two of them got home from their trip, it was hard to keep them from signing up for every credit card offer available but I eventually managed to have them ask me before they applied for any new cards. That was over two years ago. I’ve been a poor example of a son because I haven’t checked in on them since then. So I planned a couple of hours and stopped by their house to take an inventory of their points and miles balances.
