UPDATE: This piece has now been updated with the correct promo code and signing up works fine.
You usually earn 3 points per USD as an IHG Business Rewards member, which is doubled to 6 for the duration of this offer. There is a maximum of 60,000 points (120K with bonus) that can be earned from any one event ($20K).
Most of IHG’s competitors also reward meeting planners and organizers with bonus points. IHG Business Rewards also gives you points for booking rooms for others.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
To be eligible for the IHG Business Rewards 2X Points offer (“Offer”), the individual must be an IHG Business Rewards member, which includes acceptance of the IHG Business Rewards Programme Terms and Conditions and the member having registered for the Offer. By clicking “register now” in connection with the promotional materials for the Offer, the member is registering for the Offer. Once the IHG Business Rewards member has registered for the Offer, the member can earn double points on Qualifying Spend for all stays, meetings and/or events that are booked during the period from 1 September 2022 to 31 December 2022 (“Booking Period”) and completed during the period from 1 September 2022 to 28 February 2023 (“Offer Period”). The time needed for awarding points can vary with each promotional offer; so please allow up to six weeks for any earned bonus points to be posted to the recipient’s account.
For this Offer, earning “2X” or “2X points” or “double points” on stays or events booked and completed within the applicable periods as set forth above means the total number of regular “base points” and promotional “bonus points” combined will equal two (2) times the base points the member would normally receive just for being an IHG Business Rewards member. Therefore, under this Offer, the member can earn three (3) base points for every $1 USD of Qualifying Spend and an additional three (3) bonus points for every $1 USD of Qualifying Spend, for a total of six (6) points for each $1 USD. The first three (3) base points earned are considered Elite-Qualifying Points that count towards the IHG One Rewards Elite status. The additional three (3) bonus points awarded as part of this Offer are not Elite-Qualifying Points.
Points awarded under this Offer are based on Qualifying Spend within the Offer Period only. There is no limit to the number of stays, meetings or events that may be booked under this Offer; however, a maximum of 60,000 bonus points, which is the amount that would be awarded for $20,000 in Qualifying Spend, can be earned on any one Qualifying Stay, meeting and/or event, including all guest room bookings and other Qualifying Spend linked to such stays, meetings and/or events. Spend for stays, meetings and/or events that were booked outside of the Booking Period or that were not completed within the Offer Period will not qualify for 2X points under this Offer. Additional information on Qualifying Spend is available in the IHG Business Rewards Programme Terms and Conditions.

- If an IHG Business Rewards member registered for the Offer has a Qualifying Spend of $20,000 USD during the Offer Period, then the member will earn a total of six (6) points for every $1 USD, totalling 120,000 points (60,000 base points + 60,000 bonus points).
