IHG credit card transfer partners
Which IHG credit card partners are best for earning points?
Chase is the best option for transferring points to IHG One Rewards followed by Bilt Rewards. Virgin Atlantic is also not a bad option, but they are better used for flights.
Chase Ultimate Rewards
Chase Ultimate Rewards points can be transferred to IHG One Rewards at a 1:1 ratio meaning that 1,000 Chase Points can be converted to 1,000 IHG Points.
Ultimate Rewards Points can be worth as much as 2 cents apiece or more, so you'll want to note this when transferring points to IHG One Rewards since IHG points are worth significantly less.
Here are the Chase Ultimate Rewards credit cards you can use to earn IHG points:
Bilt Rewards points can be transferred to IHG One Rewards at a 1:1 ratio. Every 2,000 Bilt Rewards points you transfer will give you 2,000 IHG points.
Bilt Rewards points can easily be redeemed for high value towards travel and home downpayments. You can also transfer them to a bunch of other partners and easily obtain 2 cents or more in value. So be aware that transferring points to IHG could (and more than likely) will result in devaluation.
Virgin Atlantic Flying Club
Virgin Atlantic points can be transferred to IHG at a 1:1 ratio. This means that 1,000 Virgin Points can be converted to 1,000 IHG points.
If you're a few IHG Points shy of a redemption, this could be worth looking into. Just be sure to note that Virgin Points can easily be redeemed for 1.2 to 1.4 cents per point meaning you'll want to make sure that the transfer is worth it.
There's only one co-branded Virgin Atlantic credit card available in the Unites States and that is the Virgin Atlantic World Elite Mastercard®.
