IHG Rewards Club launched an offer to drive sign-ups for the program by offering Spire Elite-status. We already wrote about this promotion last week (read more here) and again earlier this week (read more here) when we got hold of the valid sign-up links. Points have started to post!
Members from select companies can sign up at the Spire Elite-level for 90 days and keep it by staying ten nights or get Platinum by staying five. Members are also eligible for up to 15,000 bonus points.
This offer is likely open for most businesses that have corporate rates negotiated with IHG. The offer appears to be working for existing members as well.
Here’s what posted to my stay overnight:
Here’s what we wrote earlier:
Here’s how you can earn the bonus points:
- Stay 1: 1,000 bonus points
- Stay 2: 4,000 bonus points (5,000 cumulative bonus)
- Stay 3: 10,000 bonus points (15,000 cumulative bonus)
Here’s a copy of the email that IHG sent:
Here’s successful promo registration:
And the offer tracks on My Offers:
Not sure what to think about this offer. I already have Spire Elite status and only signed up when I wrote about this to see if the registration works. I gladly take all the bonus points, however.
So, it does seem that the bonus points are open for anyone who successfully signs up. I did not book IBM or Accenture rate.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
The Instant Spire Elite offer (“Offer”) allows full time employees of an Eligible Company to experience most of the Spire Elite membership benefits for 90 days upon joining IHG® Rewards Club or registering for the offer as an existing IHG® Rewards Club member. Upon registering for the offer the member will be upgraded within 5 to 10 business days upon verifying they are employed by an ‘eligible company’. The Offer is valid between October 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019 and the member will have 90 days from the day of registration to consume the designated number of nights required to retain elite status for the calendar year of 2020. Instant Spire Elite members under this Offer will receive the bonus points or gifting benefit after completion of the required Stays. This offer is limited to the first 5,000 registrants.
All full-time employees of an Eligible Company, who register between October 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019, make the required stays within 90 days of registration and book through ihg.com or an eligible company booking tool will retain Spire Elite status after ten (10) qualifying nights and Platinum Elite status after five (5) qualifying nights during the Offer period.
