IHG just increased a lot of their property redemption valuations by 10k pts (and lowered it by 5k for their crappy hotels).

Good thing I mostly stay at their crappy hotels (It is all work will pay for.)

Marriott however is our Chain of choice usually.

I've taken some road trips where Holiday Inn is the most luxurious option. The IHG card doesn't do much for me, since I'd end up staying at 3 or 4 properties in the course of a month...once every 3-4 years. Most years, that free room would go to waste.

A $49 AF is pretty reasonable, but I wouldn't do much better than break even with the card in the long run. It could be worth the signup bonus, but probably isn't worth keeping long-term.

For someone so concerned with a card's image, it is a curious oversight...

We know that, but not any more. Hence, this discussion ensued. Pay attention.
