The IHG Status Match Offer Has Been Extended

Some links to products and partners on this website will earn an affiliate commission.

We previously wrote about a status match opportunity being offered by IHG Rewards Club (the loyalty programme for brands like Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Staybridge Suites, etc). That opportunity was due to expire at the end of June, but it has now been extended until 26 July, 2019. There are also more Spire status matches available.

“We’ll let you in on the secret to how you can get your new Elite status.

For a limited time, IHG® Rewards Club will match your status from select hotel loyalty programs. After you’re upgraded to your new status, complete your stays at any IHG Hotels and Resorts properties and keep your status through 2020.”

How to Apply for an IHG Rewards Club Status Match

IHG is matching status from a large range of competitors, including:

  • Le Club AccorHotels
  • Best Western Rewards
  • Caesars Rewards
  • Choice Privileges
  • Hilton Honors
  • World of Hyatt
  • Marriott Bonvoy
  • NH Rewards
  • Radisson Rewards
  • Wyndham Rewards

To apply for a status match, all you have to do is click here and fill in the form – it should only take a minute or two.

Your new status level lasts for 90 days, unless you complete the following number of qualifying nights (i.e. paid nights, booked directly with IHG) during that period:

If you do complete the required number of nights, you will keep your status through to the end of 2020.

Note that the promotion is only available to members who have a UK or USA address listed on their IHG account. The number of potential Spire upgrades has been increased to 5,000! 


If you are tempted by this offer, I recommend that you read my article about whether you should actually apply for every status match going – click here.

Nonetheless, this is an attractive opportunity to gain elite status with IHG Rewards Club for a fraction of the usual requirements.
