Save 6 Cents per Gallon of Gas With This Chase IHG Perk

I like the Chase IHG card for its great benefits, like IHG Platinum elite status, and 1 free night at any IHG hotel each cardmember anniversary.  But did you know it can save you money at the gas station?

Folks who have the Chase IHG card can save 6 cents per gallon at Shell gas stations when you link your IHG account to your Fuel Rewards account!  That’s because the IHG Platinum elite status that comes with the card gets you a discount.

Million Mile Secrets reader, Myles, tweeted:

I’ve opened 4 new cards in the past 24 months.  If I get the Chase Amazon Prime card, will it count toward Chase’s “5/24” card limit and keep me from getting other Chase cards in the future?

Unless Myles gets certain small business cards, new cards from ANY bank will count toward Chase’s card limit.

Because Myles is just shy of reaching 5 new cards in the past 24 months, he’ll want to choose his next card wisely!

If you’re in a similar situation, the best choice for a 5th card depends on which cards you already have and your travel goals!

I Found My New Best Friend Traveling to London: Part 5 – Where to Stay in London – Intercontinental London Park Lane Hotel Room Overview

Emily:   I love to travel, and my mom does, too!

When I was growing up in Ohio, we could only afford road trips to local amusement parks.  But collecting miles and points has opened up a whole new world of travel neither of us thought possible!

She and I decided to go to London and Paris for a mother-daughter getaway.  We flew Business Class and stayed in 5-star hotels.  I paid for this trip for a fraction of the retail cost by using airline miles and hotel points.

I’ve never traveled so long with my mom before, and at the end of the trip, I felt like I had a new best friend!  Without the miles & points hobby, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to experience the joy of traveling with my mom.
