If you click on the “Register in 1 Click” button, you will automatically be registered for the 2,000 point option – no going back!!

Does it Matter?

Well yes… unless you know you are only going to stay 2-3 nights at an IHG hotel this summer, you would be far better off with the 10,000 point bonus (summarised below as Promo 2).

For example…

  • 2-3 nights = 2,000 bonus points from Promo 1 OR 0 bonus points from Promo 2
  • 4 nights = 4,000 bonus points from Promo 1 OR 10,000 bonus points from Promo 2
  • 6 nights = 6,000 bonus points from Promo 1 OR 10,000 bonus points from Promo 2
  • 8 nights = 8,000 bonus points from Promo 1 OR 20,000 bonus points from Promo 2
  • etc.

    Caught by this scheme. If I’m going to stay 4 nights I’ll take my business elsewhere. I tried to change to 10k but it caused a system error.

    Are there any new articles coming? Noticing it’s been over a month since this/the last one and it’s becoming not worth checking here even occasionally.

    • Craig Sowerby says

      What kind of content do you most appreciate? For a variety of reasons (mostly good on a personal level), Joe and I can’t dedicate nearly as much time to InsideFlyer as we used to. 🙁

    • Joe Deeney says

      Hi Niall – yes, apologies for lack of updates, but I’m pleased to let you know that regular content should be flowing again very soon. If you’ve got anything in particular you’d like to see covered, don’t hesitate to ask! – I’ll see what I can do 😉
