IHG Credit Card Perks Stack for the Time Being
Chase and IHG recently launched a new IHG Rewards Club Premier credit card. The Premier version replaced the old IHG Chase card. While it was no longer possible to apply for the old version many people still carry it. Unless you took the small upgrade offer for the Premier card you probably still have the old version in your wallet. Some people decided they wanted to carry both cards and applied for the new version as well. It looks like that was a great move. A contact at Chase confirmed that IHG credit card perks stack for the time being.
What Does This Mean
A member of our Facebook group asked if the 4th night free and 10% back in points perks stack if you have both cards. I wasn’t sure if that was the case, or if one took precedence, so I reached out to Chase for an answer. I was informed that IHG credit card perks stack for the time being.
That is like getting 32.5% off of 4 night bookings for the foreseeable future. That is amazing value! I believe that you are able to get the new card’s bonus even if you currently carry the old version as well. Please share your data points below to confirm but I don’t think there is a family rule like the Sapphire or Southwest products have.

There is no telling how long this will last or how long it will be before all of the old IHG credit cards are product changed to the new Premier version. Consider that before running out to apply for the Premier version. But if you stay at IHG hotels often and for 4 night stays this could be a game changer for you.
I would be curious to hear some first hand reports of this actually working out there in the wild as well. If you have had these stack please let us know in the comments section.
