IHG Reward Club has released new Japan & Korea bonus points package offers for stays between July 1 and September 30, 2014.
You must book the special Bonus Points-package rate to be eligible for extra points. The rate plan is usually more expensive than the lowest discounted rates.
You can access this offer in IHG’s website here.
These are good for business travelers that can expense their stays and collect some extra points along the way or to get some extra base points for qualifying to Gold or Platinum status. These bonus points are base points qualifying
Here are the participating properties:
1,000 bonus points per night + breakfast
2,000 bonus points per stay + Value Adds*
4,000 bonus points per stay + Value Adds*
You have to calculate if the extra points in lieu of lower price makes sense. Most of the time the answer is definite no, but may work for those that want to quickly qualify for Gold/Platinum status.
The number of bonus points packages is very limited for Japan and South Korea compared to other markets.
