On Sunday, I wrote about IHG Rewards Club’s Book Direct-campaign (read more here) that is valid for stays in Asia, Middle East & Africa (greater China excluded) between April 1 – December 31, 2017.
Members earn 1,000 bonus points merely for registering for the promotion and up to 39,000 bonus points after three stays during the promotional period. Many were unable to register for this offer that is open for all that have their IHG Rewards Club account address in the qualifying stay area.
You can access and register for this offer on IHG’s website here.
Here’s how to register for the promotion:
You just click the link.
If IHG has their cookie in your browser, you account info is already filled and you only need to press register. Otherwise, you need to enter your account number first.
Your account address is not in the Asia, Middle East of Africa, if you receive this error message that implies that IHG would have a system issue (they don’t – your account just is in the wrong geographical area).
As long as your account is in the Asia (Greater China excluded), Middle East or Africa, the registration is successful.
The promo will also track on “My Offer Status” (access here).
Here’s how the bonus points will add up:
This offer is open for members that reside in the same area (Asia, Middle East & Africa) where the stays must be to be eligible for the bonus points.
If your account is based on somewhere else and you have stays coming up that would be eligible for the bonus points under this offer, you need to move your address or forgo the points.
I have an address that I can use in the qualifying area. Updated it and registered for the promo. I should complete it in the next two weeks after which I probably move it back to North America.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
