UPDATE – MAY 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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.
The current IHG Rewards promotion is ‘Triple Your Points’ – our full article is here. It runs from 15th May to 16th August. You receive double base points on your second stay and triple base points on your third and subsequent stays. You can register on this page of ihg.com.
Last week I wrote about the ‘official’ June and July promotion from Priority Club, the Holiday Inn / Crowne Plaza / InterContinental loyalty scheme. It offers double (base) points on all stays after your first stay during the period.
Slightly oddly, Priority Club has now launched a NEW ‘double points’ promotion with entirely different rules In my experience, it is highly likely you can register for both and get the points.
Here are the basics:
Valid only on stays in Europe (such as the Carlton in Cannes, above)
Stays include a midweek (Monday to Thursday) night
Must stay between 17 June and 31 August
Must register before 31 July
Double (base) points received once only, on the next stay after registration
There is clearly room here for some strategic thinking. It would make sense to avoid registering if your next stay will be a relatively cheap one, and wait until you are about to check in for an expensive one. (Although remember that European InterContinental hotels only give a flat 2,000 points per stay.)
There are also a new run of ‘stay x nights, get y points’ codes out that I will cover in a day or so.
