IHG is about to launch its first bonus offer for 2021, valid for stays between January 20 – March 31.
IHG Rewards Club members earn 2,000 bonus points for every two nights consumed during the promotional period. These bonus points are also tier qualifying.
UPDATE: I have received clarification from the IHG spokesperson who these bonus points are counted.
You earn 2,000 bonus points for every two nights consumed during the promotional period (paid stays) regardless of whether they are consecutive or not. They can be over multiple stays.
Let’ say that you have the following stays during the promotional period:
- Stay 1 – 2 nights
- Stay 2 – 5 nights
- Stay 3 – 1 night
- Stay 4 – 7 nights
- Stay 5 – 1 night.
You have consumed 16 nights during the promotional period, over five stays, which means and will earn a total of 16,000 bonus points.
You essentially earn 1,000 bonus points per night that is very meager, and what is the value of the IHG status point when the tier benefits are the weakest of all the major programs we cover?
Good to earn some bonus points for nights consumed at IHG hotels this winter.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
You must be an IHG® Rewards Club member and must register your member number in advance of staying, to participate in the “2,000 Bonus Points Every 2 Nights” promotion (“Promotion”). The promotion begins on January 20, 2021 and ends on March 31, 2021 (“Promotion Period). Upon registration members will be presented with the opportunity to earn 2,000 bonus points upon completion of every two nights during the Promotion Period when paying a Qualifying Rate (as such rates are defined in the IHG Rewards Club terms and conditions). Bonus Points will only be awarded from the base points earned with each qualifying stay. You must register for the Promotion and book before April 1, 2021.
By clicking “click to register” you are registering for the Promotion. Members will be awarded bonus points based upon the number of nights consumed during the Promotion Period at IHG® brand hotels. Members will only receive bonus points for nights occurring between the Promotion Period. A stay can begin before the Promotion Period or end after the Promotion Period but will only receive the Promotion points for dates within the Promotion Period. Nights that occurred before or after the Promotional Period are excluded. The bonus points earned during the Promotion can be used towards Reward Nights, can be redeemed for merchandise, or for other redemption opportunities.
Qualifying Stays (a minimum 1-night stay booked under a Qualifying Rate, with total spend exceeding US $30 for each night). The awarded 2,000 bonus points will be Elite Qualifying and count towards earning IHG Rewards Club member status. The Promotional Period includes 71 nights and the maximum number of bonus points that can be earned is 70,000 points over the entire Promotional Period.
