How To Redeem The IHG Card Free Night Certificate

Read more at:

The best perk of the excellent IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card is that it offers an anniversary free night certificate that’s valid at virtually any IHG property in the world. Given that the card only has a $49 annual fee (which is waived the first year), that’s like paying just $49 for a free night annually at any IHG property. That’s a spectacular deal.

The card offers other great benefits as well, including IHG Rewards Club Platinum status for as long as you have the card, plus a 10% refund on redeemed points, for a total refund of up to 100,000 points each year. 

People have a lot of questions about how the free night certificate on the card works. I’ve written guides about how to redeem it in the past, though IHG has recently redesigned their website and the certificate is no longer in the same area of your profile. Furthermore, a few aspects of the redemption opportunities have changed. Therefore I wanted to write an updated post about how to redeem the certificate.
