IHG Rewards Club has launched (or actually extended with new hotels) 10,000 points Bonus Points Package offer for two night stays at select new and featured hotels through January 31, 2019 that must be booked by December 31.
You have to keep in mind that with IHG these Bonus Points Package points are elite qualifying counting towards your Gold, Platinum or Spire Elite status.
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.
Here are the participating hotels:
You have to keep in mind that you need to book this specific rate plan to earn the 10,000 bonus points for two night stays. I checked couple of hotels and the price was higher than the best flexible rate.
You are definitely here paying for the status points OR this may make sense, whether ethical or not, if someone else is picking up the bill (reimbursement purposes) and it is within allowed daily accommodation budget.
