We base our points valuations on a variety of factors, including our team's own award redemptions, researching award bookings, as well as program-dependent factors such as fuel surcharges, fees, ease-of-use, potential devaluations, and availability.
There is not an exact science for determining the value of points and each traveler will have their own best use. These valuations are to be used as a rough guideline of what kind of redemption value you can expect to get when you use your points.

You’ll earn 10,000 bonus points when you spend $20,000 in a cardmember year and make one additional purchase.
On your card account anniversary you will also receive a free night (worth up to 40,000 points) at an IHG property.
With the card you will get a 4th night free when you redeem points for award stays of 4+ nights. This is essentially a 25% discount on 4-night award bookings.
Some other noteworthy perks of the card include:
This generous welcome offer is the highest we’ve ever seen on this card!
Also the annual free night certificate, 4th night free benefit, and automatic Platinum Elite status makes getting and keeping this card a no brainer.
It’s incredibly easy to get more value from the free night than the cost of the cards annual fee. With a little legwork you can easily get 2-3X value out of it.
The Platinum Elite status is nice for those without IHG status and the $100 Global Entry/TSA PreCheck credit is great for those currently in need of it.
