IHG Rewards Club Platinum Promotion: 5,000 Bonus Points (Not Sure For What?)

by John Ollila on January 29, 2014

IHG Rewards Club has 5,000 bonus points promotion for “5000 Point Platinum Bonus”.

The “5000 Point Platinum Bonus” promotion has been around for few years and the exact requirements for getting it to post are unclear. 

This promotion has two offer codes and you can register for both of them here and here or use codes 6783 and 8317 here.

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

As has been the case with many of the promotions this past month, these offers maybe from 2012/2013 with new offer codes and won’t work for all. I am not sure if both of the bonus offers will post.

Conclusion

This “Platinum Bonus” 5,000 bonus points posted to my account in 2012 or 2013, so I am unlikely to get it again. It may require you to qualify for Platinum status (from Gold) or renewing your Platinum status before the bonus points are triggered.

        I got the confirming email and it shows up in “My Offer Status” but I made a stay this week and the points didn’t post even though the 1500 points from another offer did post with the stay. I received 1 or 2 of these last year but I didn’t get the “already registered” warning when I signed up for this one. I’ll let you know if it ever posts, my guess is, that it won’t.

          I’ve had several stays since I signed up for this promo but the 5000 points are never given even though several bonus point offers since then have posted. I’m guessing I won’t get this one. Even though it shows up in “My Offers”, the Award Meter has never shown for this one.

      This Platinum bonus doesn’t post with the stay, but as a line in your account history at a later time.

    Please be advised that you can earn 5000 Points Platinum Bonus, the member must book qualifying rates and stay until they achieve Platinum Elite.

    For 1000 Gold Point Bonus, members must book qualifying rates and stay until they achieve Gold Elite.

    On the other hand, you will receive the bonus points for the promotion Weekend stay bonus within 6 weeks after your stay.

      I am testing this right now and should have the answer in couple of weeks.

    how long does it take for the points to post. I got 2 emails for using both links, stating thank you for signing up for “Promotion: 5000 POINT PLATINUM BONUS”

    • http://loyaltylobby.com/ John O.

      Like I posted on the piece I wrote, the requirements for these to post are very unclear and you absolutely shouldn’t count that they ever post. I have personally received this bonus once in 2012 or 2013.

  • Michael

    Had already registered for these codes (UK Platinum).

    Have signed up for all codes posted on loyalty lobby, my first 2014 stay 27,570 points but second stay only 2,902 (Anniversary Bonus 1,000pts only one which posted). Has anyone else experienced this? Have more paid stays next few weeks so would like more earning like first stay.

    • http://loyaltylobby.com/ John O.

      I believe that most of the bonus offers around now are only for a stay.

  • Jon

    My platinum bonus posted just after 1/1/14 so I suspect it is posted after successful platinum qualification for the next year.

    • http://loyaltylobby.com/ John O.

      You qualified from Gold or met the PLT requalification requirements?

    Hi,

    I entered 8317 among other codes for my recent stay. 8317 shows in ‘My Offer Status’ but I didn’t get the points for it. The other codes were ok. Is this because I am already a Platinum member?

    • http://loyaltylobby.com/ John O.

      There is no guarantee that this will post as I have explained above.
