IHG Rewards Club has announced details of its latest promotion. The promotion will run from 15 February until 15 May, 2020.
HOWEVER, it appears that you must BOOK your hotel stays before 15 April, 2020.
The promotion is quite similar to the most recent one offered by IHG. (this may well mean the end of Accelerate as a promo strategy…)
You can earn:
- 1,000 points on your first night
- Double base points for your second to fifth nights (up to a maximum of 100,000 points)
- Triple base points for your sixth to fourteenth nights (up to a maximum of 100,000 points)
- Quadruple base points thereafter (up to a maximum of 100,000 points)
The maximum number of bonus points you can earn is therefore 301,000.
You must register before 15 April, 2020. You can register by clicking here.
If you require a Promo Code, it should be 96470. (My account was unable to register, so I suspect that details of this promotion have leaked a bit early…)
Terms & Conditions
1,000 bonus points will be awarded for your first qualifying night, after registering for the Promotion. During nights 2-5, you will be awarded double points for up to 100,000 points. During nights 6-14, you will be awarded triple points for up to 100,000 points. On your fifteenth night and all future nights during the Promotion Period, you will be awarded quadruple points for up to 100,000 points. Total spend for booking a qualifying night must be over $30 USD with a minimum stay of 1 night. Promotion bonus points will be awarded based on the average nightly rate during a qualifying stay. The average room rate per night will be used to calculate promotion bonus points for qualifying stays which are greater than 1 night. If a member has a qualifying stay of 2 nights with varying daily rates and the total for all nights is $200 USD, Promotion bonus points will be calculated from the average base point earnings ($100 per night). Maximum bonus points award per member for the Promotion is 301,000 points.
By clicking “click to register” you are registering for the Promotion. Members will be awarded bonus points based upon the number of nights consumed during the Promotion at IHG Hotels. Nights must be booked before 15 April, 2020 and consumed between 15 February, 2020 and 15 May, 2020. The bonus points earned during the Promotion can be used for redemption opportunities towards Reward Nights, merchandise and other redemption opportunities. Bonus points earned during the Promotion are not elite-qualifying.
A night is qualifying when a member pays Qualifying Rates, which include most business and leisure rates at InterContinental®, Crowne Plaza®, Hotel Indigo®, Holiday Inn®, Holiday Inn Express®, Staybridge Suites®, Candlewood Suites®, Kimpton®, EVEN®, avid™, voco™, Regent® Hotels & Resorts or HUALUXE® hotels worldwide. Bonus points are not issued for Non-Qualifying Room Rates or Non-Qualifying Stays/Nights. “Non-Qualifying Room Rates” or “Non-Qualifying Stays” include the following: net wholesale individual and group rate, certain package rates, employee discount rate, friends and family rate, crew rate, special discounted contract rates, seasonal worker/crew rate, 50% travel club discount rate, travel industry discount rate, distressed passenger rate, IHG® Rewards Club Reward Nights/Airline Hotel Reward rate, rates booked through third party web sites, complimentary hotel Stays and any other rates not defined as a Qualifying Room Rate at IHG’s sole discretion. Only one room per member per Qualifying Stay will be awarded the applicable bonus points, or other benefits (if any) available under the applicable Offer. If more than one member checks into the same room, only one member is eligible for the applicable bonus points, or other benefits (if any) available under the applicable Promotion. Promotion of bonus points is available only once to each member. IHG Rewards Club Members with a Miles earning preference will earn Points. No retroactive bonus points will be awarded for nights prior to Registration. Except as otherwise stated in the terms and conditions, please allow up to 2 to 3 weeks for Promotion bonus points to be credited after check-out. This Promotion is subject to standard IHG® Rewards Club Membership Terms and Conditions and earning structure, which can be obtained by visiting www.ihgrewardsclub.com. Any misuse of such rates is considered a fraud activity subject to IHG® Rewards Club Membership Terms and Conditions. IHG® reserves the right to remove a member’s bonus points or cancel a member’s account if fraudulent use of the Promotion is detected. To the extent permitted by applicable law, IHG® Rewards Club reserves the right to cancel, terminate, suspend and/or modify the Promotion at any time, with or without notice. To the extent permitted by applicable law, IHG® reserves the right of final interpretation of this Promotion. Members must make any promotional inquiries within 60 days of the end of the campaign Promotional Period.
The Bottom Line
RIP Accelerate? I don’t suppose too many IHG regulars will mind earning quadruple points on expensive stays! (an extra 30 points per US dollar spent)
Even if you don’t have any IHG paid stays planned, you will want to register anyhow. You never know when a last minute hotel stay will come along, and you won’t want to have forgotten to register…
