Here are the Platinum benefits:
IHG Rewards Club is not known for confirmed status benefits. The only thing guaranteed are the bonus points. Some hotels do offer status benefits such as upgrades and early check ins/late check outs.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
The KNR Fast Track to IHG® Rewards Club Platinum Elite offer (“Offer”) for IHG® Hotels & Resorts managed accounts allows all full-time employees of an Eligible Company, who register in advance and stay at any participating hotel during the Offer Period, the opportunity to experience Gold Elite and Platinum Elite membership benefits for IHG® Rewards Club faster. An Eligible Company is defined as a company that is specifically selected to participate in this promotion. The Offer is valid for registrations between June 11, 2019 and August 31, 2019 (“Offer Period”).
Entrants must be IHG Rewards Club members and register to participate in the Offer. Qualifying guests staying at participating IHG hotels within 90 days of registering for the “Offer” will earn Gold Elite status after two (2) qualifying nights and Platinum Elite status after five (5) qualifying nights during the “Stay Period”. To be eligible for the Offer, a member must be a full-time employee of an Eligible Company, register in advance, stay at any participating IHG hotel within 90 days after registration, use a valid email address, and must book his or her stay using the corresponding IHG corporate rate code through an Eligible Company corporate booking tool or book direct at ihg.com with an Average Daily Rate of more than $35 or the equivalent in local currency. Bookings made through on-line travel agencies or other reservations sites such as booking.com or expedia.com will not be eligible to participate. Status upgrades are awarded pursuant to the IHG Rewards Club membership terms and conditions found at ihgrewardsclub.com.
The “Stay Period” is the period in which reservations are consumed; each registrant’s “Stay Period” is unique, as it is the period within 90 days after registration. Reservations consumed prior to registration or outside the “Offer Period” will not be eligible for the “Offer”. By way of example, a member who registers on 31 August has until 30 November to complete their offer hurdle to reach Elite status. If an Eligible Company employee is not a member of IHG Rewards Club, they can join for free. Offer status upgrade will be awarded into each member’s IHG Rewards Club account instantly upon completion of the hurdle. Once a member receives a status upgrade during this Offer, the member may keep such status through the 2020 calendar year, after which the status must be earned for the 2021 calendar year and beyond, in accordance with the IHG Rewards Club Membership Terms and Conditions.
IHG reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Offer if any fraud, technical failures, human error or any other factor impairs the integrity or proper administration of the Offer. Offer and members are subject to the IHG® Rewards Club membership terms and conditions found at ihgrewardsclub.com.
