IHG Rewards Club Promotion: 3,000 & 1,500 Bonus Points “Welcome Back Bonus” (2014)


IHG Rewards Club has two “Welcome Back Bonus” offers for 3,000 and 1,500 bonus points. These offers work for Gold & Platinum accounts and may work for Club ones as well.


You can earn both 3,000 and 1,500 bonus points once. You need to do this within 60 or 90 days after registering for these offers (not sure about the length).


You can sign up for these offers here and here or use promotional codes 2656 and 8994 here.

Note that this offer is combinable with all the other IHG Rewards Club promotions that you can find here.


You may get the error message above at the time of trying to sign up for these. It may indicate that you have taken advantage of the same offer previously (could be under different offer code) or the offer is not valid for your account for one reason or another.

You should sign up for this promotion when you know for sure that you have a paid stay coming up within 90 days. The expiry date of this offer is unclear.


If you happen to know, which of the codes is for 1,500 and which one is for 3,000, please leave a message or drop me an email.

There are many offers out there right now that maybe leftovers from 2013, but just with different offers numbers. All these promotions did post for a US based Platinum account that hadn’t taken advantage of them previously.

    I got 1500 points after registering for 2656 back in May, so I guess that those 3000 points are for the promo code 8994.

    They may be leftovers, perhaps.

    And in fact neither worked, as a Platinum. So much for that.

    2656 works but 8994 does not
