The issue is that there is no confirmation from IHG if you were within the 3,000 new sign-ups or who stayed during the promo period. The points magically appear in your account.
This is, however, an excellent offer for new members that sign up during the offer period and then earn 10,000 points for their first stay. It is not good that IHG advertises this as a free night offer because most hotels in the area, excluding some HIXs, require far more than 10,000 points for an award night.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
You must be a newly enrolled IHG® Rewards member to participate in the “New Member Bonus Points” (“Promotion”). The promotion begins on 01 October 2021 and ends on 31 December 2021 (“Promotion Period”).
First 3,000 new members who join IHG® Rewards between October 1 and December 31, 2021 (“Promotion Period”), and complete one qualified stay by booking directly at IHG® brand hotels in Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia between October 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022 (“Stay Period”), will be awarded 10,000 bonus points each.
The bonus points will be deposited into the member’s account at least 6 weeks after completing one qualifying stay. This Promotion is valid for Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia residents only. The Promotion is limited to only first 3,000 new members during promotion period and each qualified new member is limited to 10,000 bonus points. This Promotion is not available for on-property enrolments.
A Qualifying Stay is defined as a minimum 1-night stay booked under a Qualifying Rate, with total spend exceeding US $30 per night. A Stay is defined per IHG® Rewards Membership Terms and Conditions as one night or consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of frequency of check-in/out. Qualifying Rates include most business and leisure rates. Only one room per member per Qualifying Stay will be eligible. If more than one member checks into the same room, only one member is eligible for the Promotion. No retroactive credit will be awarded for Stays prior to enrollment.
