Via Loophole Travel, some folks are receiving an email to complete an IHG survey about a potential new or improved credit card.

The email subject is “Earn 2,500 Bonus Points by Sharing Your Opinion.”

Banks often send surveys like this when they’re looking to revamp a card or launch a new one.  And the survey questions indicate a new or improved IHG card MIGHT come with lots of perks, like a 4th night free, 1:1 airline transfer, and more!

The Chase IHG Card Already Comes With Fantastic Perks! So Rumors of a New or Improved Card Is Really Exciting!

I’ll explain more about the survey!

Potential New or Improved Chase IHG Card?

You might be targeted to earn 2,500 IHG points for completing a survey about credit card perks.

The survey questions indicate there’s a chance of a new or improved IHG card.

For example, the survey asks if folks would consider an IHG card with these perks:

  • 1:1 airline points transfer
  • 4th night free
  • 100,000 IHG point sign-up bonus
  • Automatic elite status after meeting annual spending requirements
  • Global Entry credit

There’s no guarantee Chase makes any of these changes or introduces a new card.  But it’s certainly exciting to see potential new perks for Big Travel!

And fantastic rewards from Chase cards is nothing new.  They’ve recently introduced the Chase Sapphire Reserve card, and made significant improvements to the Chase Ritz-Carlton card!

If you don’t want to wait for a new IHG card, you can apply for the current public offer on the IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card.  You can earn 60,000 IHG points and a $50 statement credit after meeting minimum spending requirements.  Or you could be targeted to earn 100,000 IHG points.

You’ll also get:

  • 5,000 bonus IHG points when you add an authorized user and make a purchase in the first 3 months of opening your account
  • Free Platinum Elite status (free upgrades, priority check-in, and elite rollover nights)
  • A free night at any IHG hotel worldwide on each card anniversary
  • 5 IHG points for every $1 you spend at IHG hotels
  • 2 IHG points per $1 you spend at restaurants, grocery stores, and gas stations
  • 1 IHG point per $1 you spend on everything else
  • 10% rebate on redeemed points (up to 100,000 IHG points a year)
  • NO foreign transaction fees

There’s a $49 annual fee, which is waived for the first year.

But I gladly pay annual fee each year with this card because it comes with great perks.  Like a free night on your card anniversary, which you can use at ANY IHG hotel in the world!

  1. Interesting. If this is true wonder if existing cardholders will be switched. 1-1 airline transfer sounds a little too good to be true considering the existing rate is something like 5-1. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for 1-1 but I’d guess it be bundled in a vacation package like Marriott. Just my two cents.

  2. I love to hear, how IHG is always trying to make them selfs better by coming up with new and approve perks. I also love the programs and how they are ménage in regards to each individuals status.

  3. It will be interesting to see what they come up with. My guess is that they are trying to get people to actually put some spend on the card. As it stands now, I think a lot of people just sock drawer it and pay the $49 each year for the annual free night.

  4. Got the email, started they survey and then got the message that they have enough participants and I don’t qualify. Ugh. Would love to see some improved benefits on this card to make it worth using though.

  5. I would definitely do this for 2500 points

  6. other perks they were playing with were. 1 category upgrade with Hertz, global entry reimbursement, status with 10k, 20k annual spend. Free night only good for HI brand, 5-20%discounts on buying points, 5% discount on room rates….personally I like the way it is now, good card.

  7. Hi Daraius, do IHG points transfer to airlines currently, or is this a specific perk Chase is considering? Thanks!

  8. And I can smell that won’t be $49 annual fee anymore…

  9. The 1:1 transfer would bring one of the main benefits of the SPG card in line with the IHG card. If IHG kept the free anniversary room, current sign-up bonus, and offered 1:1 transfer, they could up the annual fee to SPG level without too many complaints, IMO.

  10. Your article says that the $49 annual fee is NOT waived the first year, but the link in your article to apply says it IS waived the first year.

    Which information is correct?

  11. @Daniel Mackevili – It IS waived. I’ll update the post. Thank you!
