Card Overview

The IHG Rewards Club Traveler card is a basic hotel credit card, with a meager signup bonus. But, the good part is you do not pay a annual fee. The high reward rate of a total of 15 points on IHG purchases (when combined with a IHG rewards membership) can help you accumulate a ton of IHG points! The card also comes along with a ton of travel benefits including luggage delay insurance, auto rental insurance, and more! Plus the IHG rewards Traveler card is one of the only Chase credit cards that offers cell phone protection coverage.

Card-Smart Tips & Advice
  • Credit: Good credit needed (you will probably need at least one credit card open for more than a year)
  • Chase 5/24 rule: Chase will decline an applicant that has opened 5 or more cards (other issuers included) in the past 24 months. Hence, 5/24 rule
  • Max cards: You can get approved for up to 2 Chase credit cards in 30 days. Business cards and personal cards are counted separately
  • Double dipping: Chase will not approve you for this card if you currently have an IHG Rewards Club Traveler Card, or if you have received a bonus on an IHG Rewards Club Traveler Card within the last 24 months
  • Credit bureau: Chase Bank will usually pull your Experian credit report
  • Combining same-day credit inquiries: Some data points suggest that credit inquiries for all Personal Chase cards for same-day applications will be combined; also, credit inquiries for all Business Chase cards for same-day applications will be combined. Credit inquiries for Personal and Business card applications will not be combined. More recent data points suggest that Chase credit inquiries will not be combined even for two Personal or two Business cards for same-day applications
  • Check application status: You can check your application status at  Chase.com  / Customer Center / Check my app status or call 1 888 338 2586
  • Reconsideration: If declined you can call 1 888 609 7805 to be reconsidered
