What Is The Offer Worth
I put the value of IHG points at around 1/2 cent a piece. That would put this 140,000 point offer at a value of $700. Once you subtract the $89 annual fee you are left with $611 in value which is a pretty good offer. Any time you are getting over $500 in value I think it is a worthwhile offer. That also doesn’t include the $100 TSA or Global Entry credit. If you use that as well the offer gets a little better.
I have stopped actively collecting IHG points because they are too hard to amass. But this offer does have me considering dipping my toes back in the water. Remember that it does stack with the old versions 10% back in points deal too. So you could get 32.5% off 4 night award stays with both cards.
The Chase IHG Premier is likely going to be a long term keeper since most will get more than $89 in value (the annual fee) for the anniversary night stay.
What do you think? Does the Chase IHG Premier increased offer have you considering a dive back into the IHG pool so to speak?
