IHG Rewards Club has launched a Book Direct promotion for 2,000 bonus points per stay for up to 4 stays and total of 8,000 bonus points. This offer is valid for stays between July 10 and
October 31 December 31 (extended), 2013, and requires registration.
I originally wrote about this promotion the other week here, but the information on the IHG’s website was conflicting and IHG later removed the web page altogether.
Note that only stays after registering for this promotion will count towards the bonus points. The terms and conditions have some blurb that this offer would be valid only for select recipients, but this offer is NOT exclusive, as hotels have these leaflets out there in the front desks.
You never know, what you find at the time of checking in to a hotel. Bunch of these leaflets were nicely on a stand for guests to take with them.
IHG must be trying to generate more direct bookings and has thus launched this promotion and now has a proper web page up with correct info as well.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
A ‘direct booking’ is defined as a booking of a qualifying stay through a direct InterContinental Hotels Group channel (e.g. booking made through www.ihg.com, www.ihgrewardsclub.com, www.intercontinental.com, www.crowneplaza.com, www.holidayinn.com or www.holidayinnexpress.com and any other direct InterContinental Hotels Group website or any Central Reservation Office). A stay is defined as one night or consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of frequency of check-in/out. A stay is qualified when paying qualifying rates, which include most business and leisure rates. Only one room per member per stay will be awarded the applicable bonus points. All bookings and stays are to be completed by 31 October 2013. No retroactive points will be awarded for stays prior to registration. Subject to standard IHG® Rewards Club Membership terms and conditions and earning structure, which can be obtained by visiting www.ihgrewardsclub.com. This exclusive offer is valid for original recipient only and cannot be combined with other promotions.
