IHG has now launched its Summer 2020 promotion for stays in Greater China (China, Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan).
IHG Rewards Club members can earn unlimited double points starting from the second stay between July 15 – September 15, 2020. You must register for this offer by August 30.
You can access and register for this offer on IHG’s website here.
Note that stays with nightly rates lower than $30 don’t qualify for IHG Rewards Club bonus offers.
There is a separate bonus offer for members elsewhere:
I find it weird that Greater China is excluded from the up to quadruple points offer while they can only get double points. Let’s hope that there is an excellent free night offer coming our way in September after these two bonus offers have ended.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
