I just wrapped up this promo by having three separate IHG stays in Japan and all the bonus points posted with the stays. The 1,000 bonus points for signing up for this promotion posted as a separate line on my online account statement.

This is also a great way to extend the validity of your or your family member’s IHG Rewards Club points as this is a qualifying activity.

  • Peter

    Seems to be a targeted offer though ;(

    • You need to have your IHG Rewards Club address in Asia-Pacific (excluding Greater China), Middle East or Africa.

      • Lin Chih-Yung

        My account locates in Taiwan, Asia-Pacific, not valid for me. 🙁

        • Sergey Fedorov

          Yes, it’s screwed up. Despite T&C says nothing about account address (only about qualifying stays), registration doesn’t work for accounts in Taiwan. Support doesn’t seem to take care at all.

      • marcford

        or South Asia

      • DS

        That didn’t help, I tried Japan and S.Korea but couldn’t register.

      • panka

        It seems to be targetted for Ambassadors only.

  • Yeskendir Sergaziyev

    Does not work in my case. Account based in Germany.

  • jessie

    US plat ambassador but changed my profile mailing address to East Asia (my home country). Works fine. Successfully registered for the promo and got 1K registration bonus.

    • Sergio Cunha

      Jessie, how many days it took to get 1K registration bonus?

  • H.M.J.

    Couldn’t they throw you out ?! Wouldn’t wanna risk my 630.000 points … Let’s see whether they send me the offer … If not I can still complain and ask why they are bias … I am living in Dubai and got my account here …

    • This offer is on their own web page. Difficult to say that it would be “targeted”.

  • panka

    Just to see whether I could register, I have changed my address, but it did not work for Israel, Tunisia, Korea, Hong Kong.
    Which countries does it work for?

  • Gimme a Break

    That looks like a targeted offer based on that letter to you, an Ambassador level guest. I did not see this offer on their site when I was searching hotels the other day.

  • Sergio Cunha

    John, how many days it took to appear 1000 points for registering? I registered 3 days ago, but until now, they not appeared in my account.

  • vsevolod4

    Does not work for US, or is targeted.
