For Immediate Release

Creation Financial Services Limited, part of BNP Paribas Personal Finance, have partnered with IHG® to launch two new IHG® Rewards Club Credit Cards making everyday purchases more rewarding for customers.

The new cards, targeted particularly at IHG’s most frequent travellers and members of the IHG Rewards Club, give enhanced rewards and benefits. Designed with the loyal traveller in mind, the two cards are available to meet differing needs so customers can choose the product that's right for them and can earn a range of valuable and attractive rewards just by using their cards:

  • IHG Rewards Club Points earned on purchases: 4 IHG Rewards Club points for every £1 spent at any IHG family of hotels, 4 IHG Rewards Club points for every £1 spent abroad and 2 IHG Rewards Club points for every £1 spent elsewhere, so it is perfect for travellers who stay at IHG hotels or travel abroad. These points can be turned into a fantastic range of rewards such as Reward Nights at IHG hotels**
  • A free night certificate to use at any IHG hotel worldwide when customers spend at least £10,000 every year by the anniversary date of account opening
  • Accelerated earning potential for frequent travellers for an annual fee of £99#

    • Guaranteed room availability

The IHG® Rewards Club Credit Card* offers:

  • Earn points by making purchases and whenever staying in an IHG property: 2 IHG Rewards Club points for every £1 spent at any IHG family of hotels, 2 IHG Rewards Club points for every £1 spent abroad and 1 IHG Rewards Club point for every £1 spent elsewhere**

The card offers no annual fee, 12 months 0% balance transfer offer for balances transferred within 90 days of account opening, and up to 50 days interest free credit when customers settle their balances in full each month. 

Customers can manage cards online, by telephone, through UK call centres or by post. The IHG® Rewards Club Credit Card Online Account Management service is easy to set up and gives customers control over their accounts allowing them to set alerts for when they reach certain balances, or reminders for when payment is due – giving customers confidence and control over their account, wherever they are in the world.

Customers have the benefit of being able to check their likelihood of acceptance for the card before they apply, and this doesn't leave any record on their credit file.
