UPDATE – SEPTEMBER 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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.
You will receive a mystery bonus, usually 100%, when you buy IHG Rewards points by 8th October. Click here for details.
For most people, the current Accelerate promotion from IHG Rewards Club is likely to be the most generous hotel offer this Summer. My own personal target would get me 48,600 IHG Rewards Club points for staying just five nights if I select the right brands and nights.
For some people, though, Accelerate might not work out. Perhaps you will only have one or two IHG (Holiday Inn, HI Express, Crowne Plaza, InterContinental etc) stays during the period, which is unlikely to be enough to trigger a big Accelerate bonus. You may also have got a particularly poor bonus which is simply not worth the effort.
If so, IHG has an alternative promotion for you.
‘Double Up‘ will earn you double airline miles on every stay you make between now and the end of August.
In order to get this offer, you need to register at this page and change your IHG Rewards Club profile to earn ‘miles’ instead of ‘points’.
For some odd reason, neither Avios or Virgin Flying Club are included in this offer. You can see the participating airlines on the registration page. Those of most interest to UK readers will be:
- American Airlines
- Singapore Airlines
- Cathay Pacific / Asia Miles
…. plus another 21 airlines
Most people will be better off with the main Accelerate promotion. For the rest of you, double miles will be better than nothing on a one-off IHG stay.
