500 Free IHG Points for Adding MasterCard to Profile

Please note this site has financial relationships with American Express and this post may contain affiliate links. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here to learn more about my partners.

I recently received an email that informed me I could earn 500 bonus free IHG points just by adding a MasterCard to my IHG profile.  The terms don’t indicate that this is targeted, so it couldn’t hurt to try even if you don’t see the same email I received in your inbox.  You must change your default method of payment in your IHG profile to MasterCard by 10/31/15 in order to receive the bonus points.

For those that want to search for the email in their inbox, the subject line was “Faster bookings & 500 points when you load your MasterCard‏”.

  1. Thanks for heads up! I totally missed that email on the 24th. I needed to put in my IHG Mastercard for the 500 points, so my email was more specific.

  2. I did not get this email, and didn’t see anything when I clicked through on the link. I already had my IHG mastercard as my default credit card payment- maybe that makes me not eligible?
