IHG Rewards Club has now launched their Summer 2019 bonus points offer for members in Greater China (Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau & Taiwan).
Members can earn double points for midweek (Monday to Thursday) and triple for weekend ones (Friday to Sunday) starting from their second stay between May 1 – August 31, 2019.
You can access and register for this offer on IHG’s website here.
