IHG Hotels have instituted several programs to help its IHG Rewards members to maintain or reach a higher tier despite the on-going pandemic.
All the nights consumed have today rolled over from 2020 to 2021. You can also qualify on fewer nights and points in 2021, and the current promotion grants you additional elite qualifying points in addition to nights and bonus points.
You can access IHG Hotels here.
Here’s what my account status shows today:
I have had five consumed nights so far in 2021, and my night status as of today is 47. The rollover from 2020 was 42 nights.
Revised 2021 Qualifying Criteria
Double Elite Qualifying Points
You earn 2,000 bonus points for every two nights that are also elite qualifying during the promotion that allows you to qualify under POINTS instead of NIGHTS. The offer is valid for stays between January 20 – March 31, 2021.
I am glad that IHG Rewards decided to roll over these nights from 2020 early rather than waiting longer because members get anxious and can reach a higher tier sooner.
The current promotion really helps those that plan to qualify based on qualifying points instead of nights. I only need 8 additional nights this year to qualify through the end of 2022.
