IHG Rewards Club has today revealed the details of their next global promotion, valid for summer travel. This follows IHG offering a similar promotion this spring.

Much like the last promotion, this one also lets you earn up to 4x points, though the method by which you can earn those bonus points is different. Let’s take a look at the details.

Earn Up To 4x Points With IHG Rewards Club

IHG Rewards Club has just opened registration for their next major promotion, offering up to 4x points on stays.

This is valid for stays between June 12 and September 8, 2020. Registration is required prior to eligible stays, and this promotion is only valid for US residents.

The way the promotion is structured, you earn:

  • 2x bonus points for your first two stays
  • 3x bonus points for your third stay
  • 4x bonus points starting with your fourth stay
  • You can earn up to 100,000 bonus points per stay, and up to 400,000 bonus points through the promotion
  • Bonus points will post two to three weeks after eligible stays

There is no booking deadline, so nights consumed anytime during the promotion period would be eligible, as long as you register in time. All nights booked directly with IHG qualify for this promotion, as long as the nightly rate is at least $30.

How many points can you earn with this IHG promotion?

With IHG Rewards Club you earn 10x points per dollar spent at most brands (5x points per dollar at Candlewood Suites and Staybridge Suites). That means you’re looking at earning:

  • 20-40x bonus points per dollar spent at most brands
  • 10-20x bonus points at Candlewood Suites and Staybridge Suites

These bonuses don’t include:

  • The bonus points that IHG Rewards Club elite members receive (Gold members receive a 10% bonus, Platinum members a 50% bonus, and Spire members a 100% bonus)
  • If you pay with the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card (review) you earn 10x IHG bonus points per dollar spent

IHG Rewards Club Platinum members could be earning up to 55x IHG points per dollar spent, which is pretty awesome.

Bottom Line

IHG’s new promotion for up to 4x points is a solid one. You’ll get the most value out of this promotion starting with your fourth stay, though do keep in mind the total limit on being able to earn 400K bonus points.

What do you make of IHG’s new 4x bonus points promotion?

  1. IHG needs to step up their game.
    Their loyalty program sucks big time. Top tier Spire Elite is pure trash/garbage. No breakfast nor lounge access.

  2. Anastasia – other loyaty programmes are available you know!

    No one is forcing you to stay at an IHG hotel or even to be a member of the loyalty programme.

    I’m more than happy with Spire. Before everything got cancelled I was 4 for 5 in getting a room upgrades (3 in the UK once in Europe) for example.

    If you want a free breakfast join a programme that does.

  3. @BrightonReader. Catty response there. Are you 10 years old? I agree re no breakfast included is a rip-off.

  4. No I’m not 10 years old and you can keep your snotty comments.

    I was just pointing out that not every hotel scheme suits everyone and at times people need reminding of that and they do have a choice and should chose one that suits their needs.

    Free breakfast is not a benefit and since it’s clearly not it’s not a rip off.

  5. @Anastasia / @Elijah – Wouldn’t you rather have a real breakfast instead of a bad lounge or a minimalist continental? Even as a Hilton Diamond / Hyatt Globalist I rarely take the offered meal. I’m travelling I want to see whats about – Screw the hotel benefit and go out see / eat local

  6. @Anastasia I agree with you however – they need to step up – they have no real recognition, upgrades or benefits aside from earning more points at a higher level. They are in fact Marriott absent getting Bonvoyed constantly.

  7. I thoroughly enjoy Kimpton hotels and the dog families you meet in their pup friendly hotels, as well as the wine socials. Secret password is also fun. As just a platinum IHG, on last stay we were treated to hundreds of $ in free benefits (parking, free dinner, miscellaneous credits) just because. I don’t feel entitled to any of it but they sure were friendly and welcoming. My experience in traveling with small pups is the people behind the desk get to know you a bit better. Also, as vegans, free breakfasts are typically (but there are exceptions) not extremely exciting – i.e. fruit, bread, cereal, coffee. Hope everyone is staying happy and well.

  8. I’m confused…does this promotion only work if you’re paying for nights and not using points?
