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

Details have surfaced regarding another one of IHG Rewards Club’s fast track offers to elite status. As usual, it is targetted at ill-defined “employees of Eligible Companies” – so it might be worth a try…

All you need to do is register before 31 December 2020 and complete:

  • Five nights within 90 days for Platinum status
  • Two nights within 90 days for Gold status

If successful, your new status would be valid until 31 December, 2021.

Why Bother?

The main contributors to InsideFlyer UK have mixed opinions about IHG Rewards Club status. Some find that it does enough… if you put in the effort to find those hotels that are generous to elite members. Others (such as yours truly) think that there are far better GUARANTEED benefits available from other hotel chains.

Five nights, however, is really quite simple and straightforward to accomplish.

It’s also worth noting that this promotion is unlikely to be targeted at YOU, so you are taking some risk by signing up for this fast track. If you are a regular reader, you will know that you can also buy Platinum status by signing up for the Ambassador programme – click here for details.

The “Stay Period” is the period in which reservations are consumed; each registrant’s “Stay Period” is unique, as it is the period within 90 days after registration.

By way of example, a member who registers on July 31, 2020 has 90 days after registration to complete their offer hurdle to reach Elite status. If an Eligible Company employee is not a member of IHG® Rewards Club, they can join for free. Offer status upgrade will be awarded into each member’s IHG® Rewards Club account instantly upon completion of the hurdle.
