UPDATE – JANUARY 2021:  This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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 not currently running a global points promotion.

Registration for the current IHG Rewards Club promotion “Reward Nights. Faster” was meant to end on 15th March.

This was a bit of a surprise, because the promo is still valid for stays until 30th April.  Whilst Marriott Bonvoy is well known for closing registration 4-6 weeks before the end of a promotion, IHG Rewards Club has NEVER done this before.

It makes sense, to be honest.  It’s not as if your average business traveller has full visibility of their schedule for the next six weeks – I certainly don’t.  Why would IHG want to lose out on short notice stays because the traveller could no longer sign up for a bonus?

IHG appears to have had a rethink.  The website for “Reward Nights. Faster” now says that registration will remain open until the last day you can stay, which is 30th April.  Click here to register.

Sign up if you think there is a chance that you might have an InterContinental / Crowne Plaza / Holiday Inn / Indigo etc stay in the next four weeks.

IHG Rewards Club promotion

Everyone has personalised targets which, in general, are easier or more generous than we have seen for a while.  This is my article on the offer.  I got the following targets:

10,000 bonus points for staying five nights

19,200 bonus points for staying at three different IHG brands 

5,600 bonus points for 2 x 2-night weekend stays (Saturday plus another night)

8,000 bonus points for four stays booked on the corporate rate of the company I haven’t worked for since 2011!

3,000 bonus points for one stay in February

42,800 bonus points for completing four of the five targets above

So far I have triggered the 19,200 points bonus for staying at three different brands.  I also got the 3,000 points for a February stay.  If the chance comes up to squeeze in another two nights then I will trigger another 10,000 bonus points worth £40, although I don’t see that happening at the moment.

Take a look at what you’ve been offered.  The registration link is here where you will also find your personalised targets.  Stays must be completed by 30th April.
