IHG Rewards Club has a new promotion for double points for ONE midweek stay at participating properties in Europe between Jun 17 and August 31, 2013, that is booked by July 31.
You need to register for this promotion on IHG’s website here or using promotion code 8922 at https://www.ihg.com/priorityclub/rewards/us/en/offers/promoreg/. Remember to check the participating properties before your stay here.
Edit: IHG Has removed the required of requiring to book the Double Points Rate Category-rate from the terms and conditions. It is enough that you register for this promotion and have a midweek stay at any of the participating properties to get the double points.
The terms and conditions of this offer are contradictory. The fact that you need to register for this promotion would indicate that there is no need to book a specific rate in order to get the bonus points.
There is, however, the following line on the terms and conditions:
and has to be booked on the Double Points Rate Category
I checked three properties that are on the participating properties list that didn’t have a “double points rate” loaded.
I am not a huge fan on promotion that requires you to book a specific often inflated rate to be eligible for bonus points. The registration for this offer and requirement to book a special rate are contracting each other.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
