Advertiser Disclosure Editorial Disclosure

United Club Infinite cardholders have even more reason to love their co-branded airline card. United Club Visa Infinite credit cardholders now enjoy complimentary IHG Platinum status immediately. This new perk is in addition to other changes made towards the end of 2021 – here’s everything you need to know:

United Club Infinite Adds IHG Elite Status

The United Club℠ Infinite Card from JP Morgan Chase Bank is one of the most prestigious airline rewards credit cards on the market today. The card features a huge welcome offer after meeting minimum spending requirements (currently 100,000 MileagePlus miles after spending $5,000 on purchases in the first three months from account opening), first and second checked bag free on United flights, and a bevy of travel statement credits. Cardholders also enjoy United Club membership – a $625 value that more than recoups the $525 annual fee.

Now, Chase and United Airlines are upping the stakes with their ultra-premium travel card thanks to a new IHG hotels benefit. United Club Visa Infinite cardholders can now opt into IHG Platinum Elite status through this link. The optional benefit is available to the primary account holder only.

IHG Platinum Elite is the second-highest status in the IHG Rewards Program. Members in this premium tier enjoy exceptional perks and benefits, including no blackout dates, complimentary room upgrades (where available), guaranteed room availability, welcome amenities, and more. Platinum Elite members also enjoy 50% more base points when booking stays with IHG properties.

Other IHG and Travel Perks

In addition to IHG Platinum Elite status, United Club Infinite cardholders now enjoy a 10% mileage discount on MileagePlus miles, plus a $75 IHG statement credit. The IHG credit applies as reimbursement for IHG Hotels and Resorts purchases charged to the primary card from January 1, 2022, through December 31, 2022.
