Holders of the now unavailable IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card will be happy to hear that IHG and Chase, have rolled back on the devaluation of the annual Free Night certificate that comes with card membership. The news was confirmed by IHG Service via twitter, and you will be able to redeem your certificate at any IHG hotel through May 1, 2019, for an available room through the end of the schedule.
Which Cards Are Affected?
The reprieve only affects the old IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card which is no longer available. Both new IHG cards the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card and the IHG® Rewards Club Traveler Credit Card are not affected by this change. The Free Night certificate from the IHG Rewards Premier Card is still restricted to hotels that cost 40,000 points or less per night, which leaves out most of IHG’s best properties worldwide.
It is great that Chase and IHG have temporarily backtracked on the devaluation, and given cardholders a year’s notice. If you were thinking of upgrading your card to the IHG Rewards Premier Card, it might be worth holding on to the IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card, until you have received your certificate and used it before upgrading.
