Prospective IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card applicants will be excited to learn that Chase announced a new welcome bonus worth up to 150,000 points.

The IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card already ranks as the best card for stays at properties within the Intercontinental Hotel Group (which includes Holiday Inn, Regent Hotels and Kimpton Hotels among many others) on Select's list of the best hotel credit cards, and this bonus adds to the card's many benefits.

Select has the details on the new welcome bonus currently available.

IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card bonus

  • New offer: Earn 150,000 bonus points after spending $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening.
  • Previous offer: 125,000 bonus points plus a Reward Night after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first three months from account opening.
  • Older offer: 140,000 bonus points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first three months from account opening.
  • Bottom line: The new offer rewards new cardholders with 25,000 more points for the same spending requirement, but the Reward Night no longer comes unless you redeem your points for a minimum amount of hotel stays.

You can qualify for this bonus if you currently don't have this card and have not received a new welcome bonus for this card in the past 24 months.

Our methodology

To determine which cards will put the most money back in your pocket, Select evaluated popular rewards credit cards offered by major banks, financial companies and credit unions that allow anyone to join. We compared each card on a range of features, including travel rewards (points and miles), annual fee, welcome bonus, introductory and standard APR, one-time perks, annual perks, redemption rates, as well as factors such as required credit and customer reviews when available.

Select teamed up with location intelligence firm Esri. The company's data development team provided the most up-to-date and comprehensive consumer spending data based on the 2019 Consumer Expenditure Surveys from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. You can read more about their methodology here.

Esri's data team created a sample annual budget of approximately $22,126 in retail spending. The budget includes six main categories: groceries ($5,174), gas ($2,218), dining out ($3,675), travel ($2,244), utilities ($4,862) and general purchases ($3,953). General purchases include items such as housekeeping supplies, clothing, personal care products, prescription drugs and vitamins, and other vehicle expenses. CNBC Select used this budget to compare cards that reward specific purchases and estimate how many rewards the average consumer might earn.

We then estimated how much the average consumer could earn in rewards (in the case of airlines cards, it's usually "points" or "miles") over the course of a year, two years and five years, assuming they would attempt to maximize their rewards potential by earning all welcome bonuses offered and using the card for all applicable purchases.

Our final picks are weighted heavily toward the highest five-year returns, since it's generally wise to hold onto a credit card for years. This method also avoids giving an unfair advantage to cards with large welcome bonuses.

While the five-year estimates we've included are derived from a budget similar to the average American's spending, you may earn a higher or lower return depending on your travel habits.
