IHG Rewards Club (Priority Club’s name changed on July 1 – read more about the changes here) has a plethora of promotions going on at the moment.
As a matter of fact, I have never seen so many simultaneous promotions that are combinable. I have tried my very best to summarize them all in this article.
The number of different types of promotions that the IHG Rewards Club may sometimes have simultaneously is very confusing even for someone that follows them as closely as I do (you can read more about different types of promotions here) and reading the promotional terms and conditions, when available, don’t always help either.
Status Match / Fast Track To IHG Rewards Club Elite Status
Some of these promotions may require you to be an elite member with IHG Rewards Club. You can always get Platinum Le Club Accorhotels status (follow my instructions here) and then do a status match with Best Western Rewards that you can in turn use to IHG Rewards Club Platinum match (read more about IHG Rewards Club status match here). Note that status matches done on/after October 1, 2013, are valid until December 31, 2014 (read more here).
Word Of Warning
Please note that I cannot guarantee that all these bonus offer will work for your account. Some of them might have geographical restrictions. I have not included any of the airline related bonus offers that IHG Rewards Club has besides Air Canada Aeroplan offer. I believe that it is far better deal to collect IHG Rewards Club instead of airline miles considering the number of offers out there.
NOT ALL THE PROMOTIONS WILL WORK FOR YOUR ACCOUNT. THERE IS NO POINT CONTACTING IHG REWARDS CLUB CUSTOMER SERVICE REGARDING PROMOTION(S) THAT YOU WERE NOT ORIGINALLY TARGETED FOR.
The Big Win Promotion (Targeted Offer Based On Your Stay History)
IHG Rewards Club’s fall 2013 promotion is called The Big Win. You will get a personalized offer based on your stay history with IHG. Some with very high number of stays earlier this year have received offers that are borderline un-achievable. The Big Win-promotion is valid for stays between September 1 and December 31, 2013.
If you have not had any activity with IHG Rewards Club previously, you will receive default option that you can achieve in as little as 4 stays and get 50,000 bonus points from this promotion alone.
China Dream – Promotion For Free Nights In Greater China
IHG Rewards Club has another global promotion for up to four free nights for every two stays at different brands. The brands reset after earning the free night award. This promotions requires your IHG Rewards Club account address to be in Greater China (China, Hong Kong, Macau or Taiwan) and the free nights are valid in the same region. The qualifying stays can be anywhere.
Note that you can combine this offer with The Bin Win promotion above. This offer is valid for stays between September 1 and December 31, 2013. The free night certificates are valid until May 31, 2014.
Book Direct 2013 – Promotion For Up To 8,000 Points
IHG Rewards Club has a Book Direct 2013 promotion for 2,000 bonus points per stay for up to 4 stays and 8,000 bonus points until October 31, 2013. There might be an APAC address requirement for this promotion, although it is not mentioned anywhere in the T&C’s.
Four Promotions That Pay PER Stay For 60 or 90 Days
IHG Rewards Club has four separate offers for 1,000, 1,000, 2,000 and 3,000 bonus points PER stay for 60 or 90 days after registering for them.
You can earn all these bonuses unlimited times during 60 and/or 90 days and they are combinable. You should register for these four promotions, when you have lots of stays coming up during the next 60 and 90 day period to max the number of bonus points that you earn from your stays.
Elite Member Next Stay Bonus Offers Of 3,000, 3,000, 5,000 & 5,000 Points (16,000 Bonus Points!)
There are four separate “Elite Member Next Stay” bonus offers. Two are for 3,000 bonus points each and the other two are for 5,000 bonus points each.
The terms of these four offers state that they are for elite member only. They do work for Platinum accounts for sure. Not sure about the Gold ones.
Welcome Back (1,500 Points) + Next Stay Bonus (1,500) + New Member Bonus (1,550) + Next Stay Bonus (3,000) Offers
Then there are these three additional offers that should work for all regardless of their IHG Rewards Club status, though you should get the Platinum status through using my instructions above!
There is a Welcome Back bonus offer for 1,500 points, Next Stay Bonus offer for 1,500 points, New Member Bonus (works for old accounts as well) for 1,550 bonus points and Next Stay Bonus offer of 3,000 points.
