IHG Rewards Club revamped the online stay history and year-to-date summary displays last month to have breakdown of base versus bonus points earned and number of award, rollover nights and total elite qualifying nights.
The awards nights started to count towards elite status in the July of 2013 and qualifying nights over 50 rolled over to 2014.
You can access your IHG Rewards Club account here.
The year-to-date summary now breakdowns the total number of points earned versus the elite qualifying ones. It shows the rewards nights that you have consumed and possible rollover nights.
The “Elite Qualifying Nights” required for Platinum elite is incorrect, however, as I have already stayed at 4 IHG brands and would qualify for the 40 nights fast track offer.
The “Your Elite Qualifying Points and Nights” tries to explain this in graphical format but it is not “interactive” and doesn’t even take into account the fact that if IHG would demote my account from Royal Ambassador status it would get softlanding to Platinum Ambassador.
The account history display now shows separately the number of total and elite qualifying points earned.
The breakdown for each stay has cleaner display compared to previously and you can now see the number of qualifying nights that you have earned for any individual stay.
The stay history online still doesn’t show more than the past 180 days but you can access far longer history by using the mobile interface at m.ihg.com. It will show the stays for several years but without number of points earned breakdown.
The new layout has more information that previously that is a good thing. You should, however, every once in a while check that your stays have been recorded correctly.
