This week referral for Chase IHG Premier card came out. Since the discontinued Ink+ continues to generate Ink Preferred referral, I thought I would check to see if discontinued IHG card, with annual fee $49, generated referral for current IHG Premier….and it does!
You get 10k points per referral with an annual maximum of 50k points through referral. The fact that I get to generate referral and have a possibility of gaining 50k referral (doesn’t matter how unlikely that is) while holding a card with mere $49 annual fee is freaking awesome!
Now the question is, do you get referral bonus for referring yourself to IHG Premier through a referral link generated via discontinued IHG card? The answer is likely yes. After all, you can do this with Ink. If you have a Ink+ card, you can refer yourself to a Ink Preferred and get referral bonus in the process.
I think $89 is worth the restricted category cert plus few card benefits so I might eventually try to get this card as well. When I chose to do this, I’ll be sure to refer myself 😉
