If you’re booking a restaurant – even a casual dining one – over Christmas and New Year, remember that you can earn IHG Rewards Club points when you book restaurants online.
The IHG service is a white label version of OpenTable, so any restaurant which appears there should appear.
Via this page of the IHG website, you can make restaurant reservations globally.
This clearly isn’t the deal of the century – I would value 150 IHG Rewards Club points at around 60p! The ‘first user’ deal is more worthwhile with the 500 points being worth around £3.
One upside, however, is that the points count towards IHG Rewards Club status. I can also say, from my own experience, that they post promptly.
PS. One interesting quirk is that many hotel restaurants, IHG and non-IHG, appear on OpenTable. If you have a hotel stay lined up and know you will be eating in the hotel, why not book your table via OpenTable in advance?
