IHG previously extended credit card anniversary night certificates from 12/31/20 to 8/31/21. They did that by giving a bonus free night certificate.
IHG tells me that they are now extending the expiration date for those nights to 12/31/21.
Additionally they previously said that points wouldn’t expire until 6/30/21. They are now extending the pause on points expiration through 12/31/21. Points normally expire after 12 months of inactivity. If you have IHG Gold, Platinum, or Spire elite status (or an IHG credit card like the Chase IHG Premier Card or Chase IHG Traveler Card which give elite status) then your points never expire.
For a limited time only, the Chase IHG Premier Card is offering a free 40K reward night and 125K points for spending $3,000 in 3 months!
Where will you use your IHG free nights?
