LoyaltyLobby reader sent me a copy of an offer email that he had received from IHG Rewards Club.
This is REALLY the time of the year, when many of the programs are sending out targeted offers to keep the status that you have, but may not be able to keep based on the current stays.
The fast track offer that the reader received, requires two nights between October 30 and December 20, 2013.
This offer is not THAT great considering that there is an offer out for IHG Rewards Club Gold status after just one stay (read more here).
There are many ways to get Gold or Platinum status with IHG that only requires a stay or status match from other program. HG Rewards Club has likely sent out similar offers for keeping Platinum status as well.
