An updated travel hacking offer has just landed. All of a sudden, anyone who likes to stay in hotels free has an all-new option: the IHG® Rewards Club Select card.

IHG brands range from the upscale Intercontinental (very nice) to the mid-range Crowne Plaza (depends on the property) to the down-market Holiday Inn Express (well, in some markets there are far worse places).

The latest version of the card has a strong signup offer: 70,000 points after completing a low $1,000 minimum spend in three months. That’s not enough for you? OK, you’ll also get an additional free night valid at over 4,700 hotels throughout the network for every year you remain a cardmember.

In addition to the improved signup bonus, the card also offers the following benefits:

  • Earn 2 points per $1 spent on purchases at gas stations, grocery stores and restaurants
  • Automatic platinum elite status, as long as you remain a cardmember
  • $0 introductory annual fee the first year, then $49

There are some other hotel cards that are interesting—I particularly like the Starwood Preferred Guest, the Hyatt Visa, and the Club Carlson Visa Signature—but this is now a strong contender to have in the mix.
