GigaTake:

IHG points are some of the least valuable travel points around. But this card comes with a free night and the sign-up bonuses can get big. If you stay at IHG properties it could be worth having in your wallet (but please put your non-IHG spend on another card).

GigaPoints has partnered with CardRatings for our coverage of credit card products. GigaPoints and CardRatings may receive a commission from card issuers. However, opinions, reviews, analyses & recommendations are GigaPoints’ alone, and have not been reviewed, endorsed or approved by any of these entities. Read more here.
