IHG Rewards Club has updated the Terms and Conditions governing the program effective December 30, 2014.
These changed affect those that book via OTA’s and stay at InterContinental Residences.
You can access IHG’s web page for terms and conditions here.
Here are the changes:
The number of points that you earn at InterContinental The Residence Suites in Dubai and Asiana Saigon Residences in Ho Chi Minh City has been reduced by 50% to just 5 points per USD charged.
IHG has added a clearer restriction that you do not earn ANY points for bookings made using OTA’s. These stays are not eligible for any incidental spend either,
Not sure what is the reason behind lowering the number of points that you earn for stays at these two InterContinental Residence properties. The fact that you don’t earn anything for stays booked using OTA’s is not a new one, but they must have received many queries for them.
