UPDATE – JANUARY 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry. We produce a monthly summary of the top hotel bonus point offers – please click HERE or use the ‘Hotel Offers’ menu above.
IHG Rewards Club is offering 2,000 bonus points for every two nights you stay from 20th January to 31st March. The bonus points will count towards status. You need to register here USING CODE 42050.
You will receive a 75% bonus when you buy 10,000+ IHG Rewards Club points by 25th February. The page to buy is here.
Attached to my InterContinental Ambassador statement this month, alongside the warning of the massive devaluation of the reward chart on the 18th, was an interesting InterContinental deal.
Up to April 8th, you will receive 5,000 bonus Priority Club points when you stay at any of 22 European InterContinental hotels. See this webpage for details.
Of course, there is a catch. You need to book at the special ‘5000 bonus points’ rate, which may be more expensive than the standard flexible rate.
In Berlin on February 9th, for example, the 5000 points rate is €164, versus Best Flexible at €159. Clearly the bonus rate is a good deal here for just €5 more. In Paris on the same night, however, the price is the same – although both rates are a lot more than a prepaid, non-refundable rate. You should check carefully to ensure you are not making a bad bargain.
The good news is that the 5,000 points SHOULD count towards status, under the new structure.
