IHG Rewards Club has posted the changes to award categories that will take place this year on its website, although has forgotten to state exactly when these will take place.
Also, IHG is introducing new award night cap that is 70,000 points per night and many popular InterContinental hotels are moving there.
You can access IHG’s page for the changes here.
Note that we will have separate post up tomorrow with a spreadsheet about these extensive changes.
Many hotels are jumping “two award categories” and costing 10,000 points more once these changes are pushed through.
It is unfortunate, yet not unexpected, that IHG Rewards Club has decided to up their max award category to 70,000 points and move many InterContinental hotels there.
We will have more indepth analysis about these changes up tomorrow.
