The other week, I wrote about targeted IHG Rewards Club Gold fast track offer (read more here) that required two nights by December 20, 2013. There is a similar offer for keeping Platinum status as well.
LoyaltyLobby reader forwarded me an email that he received from IHG Rewards Club today and friend of mine mentioned having received it today to, so they must have gone out to quite wide audience.
This offer requires three nights between October 20 and December 20, 2013, to keep the status until the end of 2014. Note that there is no link to this offer, as those eligible for it has been automatically enrolled by IHG.
Fast track offers for hotel and airline loyalty program members that are about to lose their status are not uncommon, as elite members are far likelier to stay at certain hotel or fly on an airline.
The IHG Rewards Club revamped the qualification requirement earlier this year and getting the status is now much harder than previously.
It is good, however, that they are offering these targeted fast track offers.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Must be an IHG® Rewards Club member, or enrol for free. Platinum Elite status will be awarded to member after the consumption of their next three qualified nights. Stays must be completed between 20 October 2013 and 20 December 2013. Platinum Elite status will be valid until 31 December 2014 after which member must re-earn Elite status. Participating IHG brands include InterContinental®, Crowne Plaza®, Hotel Indigo®, Holiday Inn®, Holiday Inn Express®, Staybridge Suites®, and Candlewood Suites®, Even® and Hualuxe®. A stay is qualified when paying qualifying rates, which include most business and leisure rates. No retroactive Platinum Elite status will be awarded for stays prior to 30 October 2013. Subject to standard IHG Rewards Club terms and conditions and earning structure, which can be obtained by visiting www.ihgrewardsclub.com. This exclusive offer valid for original recipient only.
