IHG Rewards Club has just emailed some members new offer for 3,000 bonus points (that previously have been valid for 90 days after registration).

The email and web page refers this to “Welcome Back Bonus” and text refers to a Platinum member, but this may be available for others as well.

You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.

Remember that these bonuses only post to paid stays. Award or Points + Cash stays are not eligible. You can combine this with the Spring Accelerate and other promotions. The expiry date for registering this offer is unclear.

Here’s the email:

My Spire Royal Ambassador account was not eligible for this offer. It is a new one, however. Otherwise the error message would have been along the lines that I have already previously registered for it.


Glad to know that these “targeted” bonus offers that are often open for all are still around. Just remember to forward me offers by email that you receive from IHG and other loyalty programs. I don’t always get them.

There were issues with these promos in 2013 and 2014 when there were quite a few around and you could earn 20K+ points from one stay when all stacked. At the time, IHG Rewards Club did close some account for stacking bonus offers, but I have not heard that happening ever since.
