UPDATE – SEPTEMBER 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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 the last six months or so, Head for Points has been running a ‘world exclusive’ (seriously!) promotion with IHG Rewards Club.
Head for Points readers have received DOUBLE IHG Rewards Club base points when they book their stays via this special page of ihg.com.
All good things must come to an end, however.
The last day to book an IHG stay under this offer is 1st January 2017. You can book for a future date and will still receive double base points, but no new bookings will be possible after 1st January.
How does the offer work?
You will receive an extra bonus on every future stay at an InterContinental, Hotel Indigo, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, EVEN, Hualuxe, Staybridge Suites or Candlewood Suites property when booked at a public rate.
Under this promotion you will receive an additional 10 IHG Rewards Club base points for every $1 you spend (an additional 5 points at Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites).
Head for Points is the only site in the world to feature this offer which is the result of the strong relationship that HfP and IHG have built up over the last four years.
How do I earn my double IHG Rewards Club base points?
It is very easy. All you need to do in ensure that you book your future IHG stays via this special Head for Points landing page on ihg.com.
Please note this very important rule – you MUST click through from this page of Head for Points to the booking page. Bookmark THIS page – do NOT bookmark the ihg.com landing page. IHG will not award double points if they do not see that you clicked through directly from Head for Points.
This is how the promotion works:
You must click through from this link to the special HfP booking page on ihg.com to book your stay. IHG will NOT award double base points if the previous click did not originate at HfP or if the booking was not made via the special HfP landing page.
This offer is not valid if you book using a negotiated corporate rate.
IHG will add the double base points as an account adjustment within two months of your stay. They will NOT appear at the same time as the standard points from your stay. (The speed of awarding of double points will slow down a bit after 1st January but they WILL turn up.)
The bonus base points only apply to your accommodation and not to incidental spend such as food and beverage.
The bonus base points will only be given on one room per booking. You will not receive a bonus on a second room even if it qualifies for base points.
The bonus base points will not count for elite qualifying purposes.
The bonus base points will be based on the standard earning rate of 5 or 10 points per $1. Any elite status bonus will not be doubled.
The decision of IHG over whether or not to award double base points on any particular booking is final.
I am very grateful to IHG Rewards Club for choosing to make this exclusive offer available to Head for Points readers.
Remember to click here to book your next stay via the special Head for Points landing page on ihg.com and receive double base points. The last day to book is 1st January 2017.
