IHG has launched a new Winter Sale for stays at its Kimpton Hotels worldwide through September 7, 2021.
Members save 25% off of their stays if booked by February 7. Some hotels may have a two-night minimum stay requirement (see the list below).
IHG Rewards Club has launched its first points sale of 2021 that allows members to buy them with a 75% bonus (there could be higher personalized offers) through February 25, 2021.
IHG frequently sells its points (the maximum bonus is 100%), and members can now buy up to 150,000 (sometimes with an increased limit of 250,000) every calendar year before any targeted offers.
IHG Hotels runs three loyalty/guest recognition programs of IHG Rewards Club, collecting points and redeeming free nights, paid InterContinental Ambassador for benefits at InterContinentals, and Inner Circle for enhanced benefits at Kimpton hotels.
IHG has now sent out invitations and extensions for Kimpton’s Inner Circle tier, which requirements have never been published, through December 31, 2021. .
IHG has extended its “Get a Night On Us” sale for stays in participating countries and hotels in Europe through May 31, 2021. You must now book by April 30.
IHG Rewards Club members get a third night free (34% discount). There is a one-night deposit requirement, but you can change your stay dates by contacting the hotel minimum of 48 hours before your stay.
Here’s a comprehensive look at IHG’s coronavirus policies and IHG Rewards Club promotional opportunities, both rate and points for January 2021.
Remember to forward us promotional offers by email that you receive from both hotels and airlines. You can send questions and comments as well.
IHG Hotels offer discounts to Travel Agents and/or Consultants (sometimes called Travel Industry Professionals). These rates are deeply discounted but often neither widely available nor qualifying for elite benefits or points.
IHG made these rates eligible (unlike all other hotel programs that I know) for stay credits and points several years ago. They are also qualifying for all promotions that IHG Rewards Club has.
IHG Hotels have launched a flash sale for stays in Indonesia, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Maldives, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
The discount is 30%, and IHG Rewards Club members are eligible for an additional 10% off, bringing it to 40%. The sale is valid for stays through December 30, 2021, and must be booked by January 14.
It is the time of the year when it makes sense to check the airline and hotel loyalty programs you have status or collect points and miles to see if they are still relevant.
2020 was a blast for me in earning Hilton nights (100) and getting revenue towards the lifetime Globalist with Hyatt (70K base points).
IHG Hotels and Mr & Mrs Smith introduced a partnership back in September 2019 that should have made hotels bookable on IHG’s platform in early 2020, but there was a delay with integration, and the introduction was delayed until October.
IHG has rolled out more Mr & Mrs Smith hotels on their platform that are available using either cash or points (many cash only). IHG intends to eventually have more than 400 Mr & Mrs Smith hotels available on its website.
IHG Rewards Club launched in July a promotion to get members to sign up or existing ones to renew the Ambassador-membership by offering a free night certificate that was extended until December 31, 2020.
InterContinental Ambassador members whose membership is expiring on March 31, 2021, or earlier can now renew under this offer.
