If you had your IHG Rewards Spire Elite status rolled over last year, even though you didn’t earn enough points to requalify, there is some good news.
Your 25,000 bonus IHG Rewards points for requalifying as Spire Elite are now available to claim.
Alternatively, you can gift Platinum Elite status to a friend.
Given that the points are worth at least £100 I doubt many of you will want to do any gifting, but you can review the Platinum Elite benefits on this page of ihg.com.
Many of us thought that the points would not arrive
When IHG rolled over elite status last year, it specifically said that members who were Spire Elite WOULD receive their requalification gift.
The gift usually appears immediately when you requalify but in this case it did not. No-one was sure what was happening, but as IHG Rewards had voluntarily extended status you couldn’t really complain.
All has turned out well, however, and the 25,000 points are now available.
How do you claim your 25,000 IHG Rewards bonus points for being Spire Elite?
Go to ihg.com here and log in to your account.
On your account home page, scroll down and you will see this:
You can then choose between gifting Platinum Elite status or taking the points.
It is good to see IHG Rewards coming through here, when they could easily have said that people who were gifted requalification would not receive anything.
