The popular offer for IHG Rewards Club Gold status after one paid stay by the end of 2014 has returned. This is targeted for HP employees, but it works like any other one time bonus offer.
IHG Rewards Club Gold status normally requires 20,000 base points or 15 nights. There is a fast track offer for Gold for 10 nights + 3 different IHG brands.
As is the case with many of the promotions this year, this offer doesn’t track in “My Offer Status” page. You do receive a confirmation email, however. The picture above is from a similar offer in 2013.
There are benefits for being Gold member with IHG Rewards Club such as bonus points and late check outs. There are also bonus points promotions that require you to have elite status before the work. You can access all IHG Rewards Club promotions here.
