I have written before about the regular bonus codes published by IHG Rewards Club. To avoid linking back to too many older posts, I will repeat the background here and then share some new codes below.
The question ‘Which is the best hotel loyalty programme?’ is a long and complex one. The answer is usually different for each person. However, it is generally fair to say that no-one will go wrong by trying to squeeze in one IHG Rewards Club stay per year.
IHG Rewards Club is the loyalty scheme for Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Crowne Plaza, InterContinental and some other small brands. At the moment, IHG Rewards Club has a lot of very generous promotional codes which they are sending out to members.
These are usually targetted at lapsed members, offering 3000 points on your next stay, or 1000 points for every stay in the next 60 days, or 5000 points for a weekend stay. The key, though, is that these codes can be used by anyone, whether or not that person was originally targetted.
Each promotion has its own promo code. All you need to do is write down all of the currently active codes from this post and the Flyertalk link below, and then visit this website to activate them on your account. Note that some of these codes only work for 30, 60 or 90 days from registration, so don’t sign up if you have no stays planned.
New codes appear every few months, so if you push one stay a year towards IHG Rewards Club then you will hoover up a lot of points. If you travel with your partner, do a stay in your name and your next stay on an account in their name – this way you will get all of the ‘one off’ codes on each account.
The following new codes appeared on Flyertalk a couple of weeks ago. The LoyaltyLobby site has been testing them out, a stay at a time, and we now have a good idea of what each of these codes should do.
1027 – 3,000 points PER STAY (!) for the next 90 days
4041 – 3,000 points on your next stay within 90 days
1037 – 5,000 points on your next stay within 90 days (in theory, Gold and Platinum members only)
1023 – 3,000 points on your next stay within 90 days
1027 – 3,000 points PER STAY (!) for the next 90 days
1012 – 5,000 points on your next stay within 90 days (in theory, Gold and Platinum members only)
1041 – 2,000 points PER STAY (!) for the next 60 days
On top of all this, these older codes should still work if you haven’t used them before:
2656 – 1,500 points on your next stay within 90 days of registration
2785 – 3,000 points on your next stay within 90 days of registration (may only work for Platinum and potentially Gold members)
3825 – 3,000 points on your next stay within 90 days of registration (may only work for Platinum and potentially Gold members)
4648 – 1,500 points on your next stay within 90 days of registration
4709 – 1,000 points on EVERY stay within 90 days of registration
There is a thread on Flyertalk which lists other current (and indeed non-current, it is never clear which ones still work!) promotional codes. For completeness, you should plug in all the codes on the Flyertalk list as well!
Remember that you can convert IHG Rewards Club points to Avios at the rate of 10,000 to 2,000, in chunks of 10,000 although you will get a better deal from a hotel redemption. A one night stay using all of the codes should get you 4,000 Avios-worth.
I am currently in a Holiday Inn Express in Madrid. (Well, I’m not …. I checked in for 3 nights on Tuesday and then promptly left for my Melia free night.) I am using these mattress run nights as part of the Big Win promotion.) Let’s see what posts for me early next week.
Needless to say, the existence of these codes changes the dynamics of the Big Win promotion a little. As you can get 9,000 bonus points PER STAY (worth £45 at my valuation of IHG Rewards Club points) if you register for the ‘per stay’ codes above, it may make more sense to do random mattress run nights to get the stays you need for the Big Win.
