IHG Makes Positive Free Night Certificate Change

In early April, IHG made some major changes to the anniversary free night certificate offered on their co-branded credit card. Previously the anniversary free night certificate had no cap, meaning you could redeem at any IHG hotel with award availability. IHG hotels retail for up to 70,000 points per night nowadays, so that’s quite a value.

However, with this change, IHG only lets you redeem at properties that retail for up to 40,000 points per night. That’s potentially still an excellent deal, given that this covers a vast majority of properties. Obviously this benefit was a major reason that a lot of people got the card.

To ease the pain of that adjustment, they said they’d honor the uncapped anniversary free night certificate for the first year for those who got the card between January 1 and April 5, 2018.
