Conclusion

I would assume that this offer is open for members that reside in the same area (Asia, Middle East & Africa) where the stays must be to be eligible for the bonus points.

IHG Rewards Club is here trying to get more people to book direct rather than using various OTAs that are popular in the area.

This is an excellent way to extend the validity of family member’s points by 12 months that may be up to expire.

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

Must be an IHG® Rewards Club member and must register member number in advance to participate in this promotion. Members will receive bonus points upon registration and on completion of each of the first three Qualifying Stays booked directly on any IHG website or mobile site at InterContinental®, Crowne Plaza®, Hotel Indigo®, Holiday Inn®, Holiday Inn Express® and Staybridge Suites®  hotels and resorts in Asia Pacific (excluding China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan), the Middle East and Africa between 1 April 2017 and 31 December 2017 (“Registration”). The bonus points will be provided as follows: 1000 points for registration; 5000 points for the first Qualifying Stay; 9000 points for the second Qualifying Stay; and 15,000 points for the third Qualifying Stay. Upon completion of all three (3) stays, members will receive 10,000 points as a bonus. A stay is defined per IHG® Rewards Club Membership Terms and Conditions as one night or consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of frequency of check-in/out (“Stay”).

  • Denise Pastor

    I get the same as Beppo ” We encountered a system problem while processing your request. Please try again or contact the IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centre for assistance” and also it asks for a Promo Code

    • The promo code is included on the page when you register. Where is your IHG Rewards Club account registered?

  • jacky

    no worky for me TT

    • Gounadave

      Worked for me . I think the country of residence has to be within the AMEA area ,at least at the moment ,maybe IHG are working on fixing that

      • That’s what I am saying above. Similar promotions previously needed the member’s address to be in the Asia, Middle East or Africa.

  • Kathie Zettervall

    it needs a promotion code. is this a targeted offer?

  • Stephen C

    Spoke with IHG Rewards Club and they said everyone can participate. There is a system glitch that IT is working on and this program should be live tomorrow. They said if you booked before your registering the promotion by April 1, 2017, you will be included once you register. Hope this helps.

    • I am almost certain that this is only valid for members in Asia, Africa or Middle East like previous similar promotions.

    • David Stevenson

      “No retroactive points will be awarded for stays prior to Registration” As per T&C

    I’m trying to register from the US.

    • The promo code is embedded on the link.

      • Shane

        OK now I see the code in the link – thank you.
        Unfortunately it is still not working – I’m getting:
        “We encountered a system problem while processing your request. Please try again or contact the IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centre for assistance.”
        (which I have done)

        • Shane

          I received this today from IHG:
          As per checking, I would like to inform you that your account is eligible to Spring Bonus promotion. However, your account is not eligible to “Book Direct” promotion. The reason for this is “Book Direct” promotion is only applicable to members residing in Asia, Middle East and Africa region.

  • steve

    I still get:

    We encountered a system problem while processing your request. Please try again or contact the IHG Rewards Club Customer Care Centre for assistance.

  • msterpax

    Not meant for US based members. Info directly from IHG relating to their promotions is almost always wrong and/or contradictory.

  • BatSheva

    I emailed IHG when I could not register and the response I got was “the promotion is only available for AMEA Region residents”.

  • vsevolod4

    This does not seem to work. The URL is /gb/en and it doesn’t accept my registration (I’m US).

  • Changmin Kim

    Is it targeted for recipient?
