I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).
That stacks with a 50% bonus on transfers from IHG to United that runs through the end of the month. With this offer 10,000 IHG points transfer to 3000 United miles instead of the usual 2000.
Since you can buy IHG points at $50 per 10,000 with the bonus offer ending today, that means you can buy batches of 3000 United miles for $50 each or 1.67 cents per mile. That’s a little more than I think the miles are worth, but this will be useful to some nonetheless.
You can also pick up 85,000 points from the new IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card — 80,000 points after $2000 spend within 3 months and 5,000 points after you add your first authorized user and make a purchase in the first three months — the annual fee is $89 and reports are that this card is not subject to ‘5/24‘. It also comes with elite status, an annual complimentary reward night, and fourth night free on redemptions four nights or longer.
