Chase IHG Rewards Club Select and Premier Credit Card customers are getting a new Cell Phone protection benefit added to their benefits.

IHG Cell Phone Protection Benefit

  • IHG Rewards Club Select Credit Card get up to $600 per claim and $1,000 per year
  • IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card get up to $800 per claim and $1,000 per year

This is a welcome benefit added to the cardholders, but at the same time, Price Protection and Mastercard Concierge services are removed on these cards. These are due to the change in benefits with Mastercard and not directly made by Chase.

Even though these cards now offer cell phone protection benefits, Ink Business Preferred is still the better way to charge your cell phone bills, you earn 3X points and get a $600 protection.

Here is the recent communication from Chase in regards to this benefit Change.

Our View

Do you think this is a welcoming change that will make you switch to IHG card for charging your cellular bill? In our view, Ink Preferred is the way to go and continue to enjoy the Annual Reward night on the IHG card. If you don’t have the Ink Preferred, 80,000 Ultimate Rewards bonus has been the top bonus in the market.
