Sign Up Benefits
IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card allows you to pay off part or your entire bill with a Statement Credit offered as a sign-on bonus.
For example, you have a credit card which offered a $200 statement credit. In order to get it, you have to make purchases totaling $1000 or more within the first 90 days of opening the card. You spend $1100. When you get your credit card statement for the month following the introductory period, your bill will be reduced by $200. So if your credit card bill is $500, you will only have to pay $300.
Once approved for this credit card, you may get Welcome Points that you can use for other benefits. These include travel, high-end merchandise, discounts, or bill credits. Each card has different requirements for using the points.
