IHG Rewards Club launched back in March a promotion to drive more direct bookings (not OTA) from members residing on Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa. The promotion was supposed to end on August 31 but has now been relaunched for stays August 15 – December 31, 2016.
You can get 1,000 free points merely for registering and an additional 29,000 points for the next three stays in the Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa.
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.
This offer is not valid for stays in China, Hong Kong, Macao or Taiwan. I believe that the offer is targeted towards those members that have their account address in the Asia Pacific excluding Greater China, Middle East or Africa.
If you have completed this offer previously, your account is not eligible for this offer. If you registered previously but didn’t complete the stays, check the offer status in your “My Promotions” (access here). Your offer has likely been extended until the end of this year.
Here’s how the bonus points add up:
Note that I have covered this promotion on the following posts:
I wrapped up this promotion back in March and the points posted to my account without any issues as I have documented on the posts I made and linked above.
IHG Rewards Club has sent out separate targeted offer that I’ll cover tomorrow that has the same bonus points but in two stays requiring multiple night stays.
