Delta I know. I am learning more and more about SPG and how it works. So many have talked about the SPG Platinum Challenge that I have checked it out. But first my IHG Platinum since I have “truly arrived” (really?)!
I like IHG. I like Crown Plaza hotels. I even like Holiday Inn and Express hotels. Intercontinental are always nice, but it irritates me the dual program thing they have going on with the Ambassador for $200 more (no thanks)!
I am not sure I am impressed with the new cards (then again the old ones were not that great either). There is no bar code or magnetic strip so the cards are just “bling-ish”.
The perks of being Platinum with IHG are hit and miss as most know. It is also so easy to get their top status, it just take getting a Chase
PC IHG card & you can pick up 80,000 points along the way (not my link so YMMV)!
“Where are we headed next?” you ask me? Why back to SPG since I can rely on them much more to extend elite benefits across ALL their products consistently and on points or non-points stays. I have my SPG Business card and I am waiting for my next round of cards next month to get the SPG Personal card to get 2 more stay credit (you can get a total of 4 stay credits or 10 nights total per year if you hold both personal and business cards).
What do you think, is IHG Platinum status worth anything to you? – René
