    I already have the IHG Premium Credit Card for collecting max points; I deem the annual fee to be worth paying, as it gets me a free night anyway, plus gives enhanced points on spending.

    But they just offered me the standard IHG credit card, with no annual fee, and the offer of 10,000 points for spending £200 in the first few months. So that's what I will be doing. And then maybe even taknig advantage of their tempting balance transfer after the spend to get the points.

    Anyone else had a similar offer ?

    Hi John, I've also wondered whether you can have both cards - I have the Premium already. I usually apply for about 4 cards per year and would normally want more than 10k IHG Points as one of those sign up bonuses (given amex churning etc), but with the way the UK rewards credit card market has gone over the least year or 2, can potentially see myself doing something similar before too long.

    Are there ever any referral offers for the IHG Premium Card?

    Not that I've seen. To be honest, even if there was I wouldn't trust Creation to be able to manage the process properly without creating a huge headache for all involved.

    that's a shame - with the current ANA status match opportunity, I'm guessing they're going to see a sudden uptick in applications

    Certainly possible. Actually, that reminds me to check my ANA account... :)

    Has anybody tried churning the standard Creation IHG card? I'm wondering whether it's possible to get the 10,000 point sign-up bonus again after having cancelled it around six months ago. With a spend threshold of £200 to trigger the bonus I'd like to rinse and repeat twice a year, but it would be good to know whether anybody has tried this already?
