IHG Rewards Club has launched new promotion for double and triple points for stays at Holiday Inn Express hotels between August 1 – September 30, 2017.
IHG Rewards Club members in the Americas (excluding Quebec) can earn double points for weekday nights and triple for weekend ones. Minimum stay length is three nights.
You can access and register for this offer on IHG’s website here.
Note that IHG averages the spend for all nights and then bonuses the weeknights (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) and weekend ones (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
There is maximum of 25,000 bonus points that can be earned from this offer.
Weekend nights tend to be cheaper so averaging the nights will work for member’s favor in most instances.
I have requested clarification from IHG but, based on the T&Cs, I would assume that, although the member account must be based in the Americas, the actual stay can happen worldwide.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
