A LoyaltyLobby reader sent us a question regarding IHG Rewards Club and how to build up elite qualifying points?
You can access IHG’s page for Bonus Points Packages here.
Here’s the email from the reader:
Are there any fast ways to build up my elite points? I want to to IHG Spire before the end of the year and wondered if I’m missing any obvious ways.
I need 52 nights or 40000 points.
The beauty of IHG Rewards Club is that getting Spire Elite is not that difficult by points (is by nights because 75 is needed) because you can always add Bonus Points Packages to your stays that are elite points qualifying.
There are many form of Bonus Points Packages from 1,000 bonus points per stay/night to 10,000 bonus points. The reader could get the missing 40,000 elite qualifying points in as few as four stays.

Bonus Points Packages are the easiest way to accelerate one’s status with IHG Rewards Club. You have to keep on mind that you get Elite Choice gift once reaching Spire Elite that is 25,000 points or gifting Platinum elite status.
You have to pay a premium over discounted or best flexible rate to buy one of these Bonus Points Packages so in essence it is better do it in as few stays as possible.
