IHG card promo: 3k bonus for spending $750/month

Postby kcm7 » Tue Mar 28, 2017 9:50 am

Anyone else with the IHG card get this in their email this morning?

Starting April 1 through Aug 31, you get 600 bonus points per month if you spend $750 in that month. So that's up to 3,000 points.

On one hand, I'm excited because I'm saving up my IHG points for my brother in law's destination wedding. On the other hand, I use my IHG only for category spending usually, which is *maybe* $500 a month at most. Guess they want me to use the card a bit more.
Cards:

-Capital One Quicksilver
-Barclaycard Arrival (no AF)
- US Bank (no rewards)
-IHG

I didn't get it, but I'm already paying several AFs for better rewards. Depending on how you value IHG points, it should make any revenue nights more rewarding, and maybe make the card more appealing for other stuff.

It sounds like it tracks spending by calendar month rather than statement period?

Just checked the terms, and yes, it's by calendar month. Which might make it harder to track, than if it were by statement.

Eh screw it. I think I'm going to try to go for this one. $750 a month shouldn't be that hard, and I need to farm some IHG points.
