Here’s what’s changing and what’s staying the same with the IHG® One Rewards Traveler Credit Card, which has a $0 annual fee:

  • New offer: Earn 80,000 bonus points after spending $2,000 in the first 3 months from account opening. Plus, new cardmembers can earn up to $50 in statement credits on purchases made at IHG Hotels and Resorts during the first 12 months from account opening.

How valuable are these boosted bonuses?

Currently, NerdWallet values IHG points at 0.7 cent apiece. That brings the value of these sign-up bonuses to $1,080 for the IHG® One Rewards Premier Credit Card ($980 worth of points, plus the $100 statement credit) and $610 for the IHG® One Rewards Traveler Credit Card ($560 worth of points, plus the $50 statement credit).

NerdWallet calculates this baseline valuation by comparing cash prices to available reward redemptions for hotel stays across multiple destinations, dates and brands within the IHG umbrella.

Here’s a quick look at the hotels included in that offering:

Overall, this isn’t IHG’s best-ever sign-up bonus offer. But if you’ve been on the fence about these cards, now may be a great time to pick up an already valuable bonus with the added perk of a statement credit.
