IHG Hotels in the Middle East, India, and Africa try to get IHG Rewards Club members to get wining and dining at participating outlets.
Membership gets 25% (Club & Gold) or 30% off (Platinum & Spire Elite) their bill and earns 250 points for every $25 in spending through December 31, 2021.
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.

It is a good idea for hotels to offer discounts for their loyalty program members to get them to wine and dine at hotels (prices are usually inflated compared to non-hotel outlets).
There are many paid dining plans in Asia-Pacific that offer 50% discounts for members, but you need to fork some cash first to buy a Club membership.
I like the idea of IHG offering discounts for F&B while earning points in the process, even when you are not staying.
Here are the terms and conditions of this dining discount:
The IHG® Rewards Member food and beverage discount is applicable at participating restaurants and bars at IHG® hotels and is available from 2 January 2020 to 30 December 2021 to all IHG® Rewards members dining at IHG® hotels located in India, Middle East, and Africa with or without a stay at the participating hotel.
