IHG Rewards Club Fall 2013 Promotion Guide

by -

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.


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.

Welcome Back (1,500 Points) + Next Stay Bonus (1,500) + New Member Bonus (1,550) + Next Stay Bonus (3,000) Offers

    • It is certainly bonanza time. It is very nice to have the promotions that are valid for 60 and 90 days. They keep paying for rest of this autumn (or spring for those in southern hemisphere).

  • Shaun

    have registered some of these code. I would have a stay tomorrow, so let’s see how many points I can make plus 1 night CHINA DREAM

    • You will be doing just fine!

  • Andy F.

    I heard that IHG has closed so many accounts due to code abuse. How do you feel whether it’s safe to use these codes? TIA!

    • These are all valid promotions and requires stays. I have not heard IHG closing accounts that have registered for stay based promotions. They have likely closed accounts for those that were doing quizzes/watching videos etc.

  • Gary

    Here’s one that is still valid until March 1, 2014. I don’t know the code though.


    I’m platinum and registered it back in June. (I have been staying at Hyatt and Hilton since then. I better get back to IHG for all these points — have three stays in next two weeks.)

    • It hasn’t posted for you?

      • Gary

        Went back and checked to see if I had nights since June. I did in July & August. It did not post. : (

        • That’s what I suspected. I only try to post offers here that I know for sure that works.

          • Gary

            good point, assumed…since it registered…darn

  • Alex

    I got for one night due to the promotion at the IC Duesseldorf 17’000 points. This is not to bad…

    Most of this promotion I did not know about.

    • See it pays to follow LoyaltyLobby!

    I’ve just registered for all of the relevant promo codes and on my last two 1 night stays I received 30,000 points and then 15,000 points. Considering I normally only achieve around 1,500 per night I am one happy business traveller. Thanks for such a great site.

    • There are some great promos out there right now!

  • andrewleen

    Hi John, I am reporting back that all the promotions you mentioned above of which you were not sure of working for gold members actually worked just fine for my wife. She is currently a gold member with IHG. She has got more than 30,000 points for a cheap 1-night stay. That is really amazing!

    • Thanks! Great to know that they work on Gold accounts as well.

  • Dave

    Hi John, thanks for all these code! I have racked up quite a lot of points and will achieve the Big Win 50k version with my current stay. I checked in 2 nights o and will check out in 2 days. I forgot to enter in more promo codes for this stay ahead of time. Is it now too late now that I have checked in?

    • You have to register before your check out date.

  • David

    Hi John, I signed up for all the promo codes on this page and have gotten a lot of points. They say completed in my Offers page. You said that we van get 2000-3000 point bonuses multiple times during this period, but how can we do that if the Offers page says that they have been completed?

    • There are promotions that pay only once and others that pay for 60 to 90 days. Check the status of ALL the offers that you have signed up for to make sure that you did sign up for those as well.

    Hi John. I registered some offer code here at late December last year, Do u think some code like anniversary bonus offer will still work if I have a stay in these days?

    • They may. No guarantees, however.
