IHG used to be very aggressive with its sign up bonus offers for new members, but they haven’t had anything like this recently. I am not sure if the above offer is standard for all or if it is tailored for various markets.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
You must be a new IHG® Rewards Club member and must register your member number in advance to participate in the new member campaign/promotion (the “Promotion”). Upon Registration (as defined below), members will be presented with the opportunity to earn at least 15,000 bonus points upon completion of all offers presented. Members will be awarded bonus points listed for each individual Promotional offer (“Offer”) after completing the requirements of each individual Offer. Each Offer must be completed in the next 94 days (“Registration”). The bonus points earned through individual Offers can be used for redemption opportunities towards Reward Nights, merchandise and other redemption opportunities. See individual Offers for the specific terms and conditions per Offer type. A Stay is defined as per IHG® Rewards Club Membership Terms and Conditions as one night or consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of frequency of check-in/out (“Stay”). A Stay constitutes a “Qualifying Stay” when member pays qualifying rates, which include most business and leisure rates at InterContinental®, Crowne Plaza®, Hotel Indigo®, Holiday Inn®, Holiday Inn Express®, Staybridge Suites®, Candlewood Suites®, Kimpton®, EVEN®, avid™, voco™, Regent® Hotels & Resorts, Principal® Hotels, or HUALUXE™ hotels worldwide. IHG® Army Hotels are excluded from the promotion. Bonus points are not issued for Non-Qualifying Room Rates or Non-Qualifying Stays. “Non-Qualifying Room Rates” or “Non-Qualifying Stay” include the following: net wholesale individual and group rate, certain package rates, employee discount rate, friends and family rate, crew rate, special discounted contract rates, seasonal worker/crew rate, 50% travel club discount rate, travel industry discount rate, distressed passenger rate, IHG Rewards Club Reward Nights/Airline Hotel Reward rate, rates booked through third party web sites, complimentary hotel Stays and any other rates not defined as a Qualifying Room Rate at IHG’s sole discretion.
