Click here for our article on IHG’s current ‘2x’ double points promotion which runs until 15th December 2020. You can register for the offer by clicking here and adding promo code 44480.
IHG is also offering a 40% discount when you buy points until 13th November 2020. The website to buy points, and find out more, is here.
IHG Rewards Club has launched a brand new promotion offering you the chance to earn lots of bonus points.
It is called ‘4x’ and you can register here.
EDIT: IHG has now extended the registration and booking deadline to 15th January 2020
I know what you’re thinking – IHG is already running an Autumn promotion! The latest version of Accelerate gave everyone a set of personalised targets and until 31st December to achieve them. You can read our full article on Accelerate here and register by clicking here.
It also doubles up with the current InterContinental bonus we wrote about here (and register here). This gives you 3,000 bonus IHG Rewards Club points on up to five InterContinental cash stays before 30th November.
Get all three of these offers going at the same time and you’re in for some very generous earning indeed!
What is IHG’s new promotion about?
A lot of people were unexcited by their Accelerate targets this Autumn. It is possible that IHG Rewards Club has already seen this flowing through to lower booking numbers, hence this new offer.
The new offer encourages you to compete four or more stays by 31st January:
Your first stay earns 1,000 bonus points
Your second stay earns DOUBLE base points
Your third stay earns TRIPLE base points
Your fourth stay and subsequent stays earn QUADRUPLE base points
Is there a catch?
A little one. You need to register by 15th December and, more importantly, book by 15th December.
The link to register is here.
A bit of cunning thinking may be required …..
Because of the way the bonuses increase, it may be worth pushing more stays towards IHG if you know you will have an expensive stay coming up.
Let’s imagine that you have a stay coming up which you know will cost £1,000 excluding VAT. At 10 base points per $1, you would be earning around 13,000 points (+ status bonuses) from that stay.
However, if you could slip in three other stays before that one, your £1,000 stay would earn quadruple base points – 52,000 points in total!
EVERYONE should register for ‘4x’ now – the link is here.
Because registration finishes six weeks before the end of the offer, you could be caught out in January if you haven’t already registered. Do it now and get it out of the way.
Whether it is worth moving four stays to IHG will partly depend on your Accelerate targets too. However, this is certainly a generous offer – especially if you can make those third and fourth stays into expensive ones. For most people, it will beat Hilton’s double base points offer.
