Awesome: IHG Launches 4x Points Promotion

Filed Under: Great Deals, IHG Rewards

IHG Rewards Club has just revealed the details of their next global promotion, and it’s potentially extremely lucrative.

Earn Up To 4x Points With IHG Rewards Club

IHG Rewards Club’s new promotion offers up to 4x points on stays. The way the promotion is structured you earn:

  • 1,000 bonus points for your first stay
  • 2x bonus points for your second stay (up to 200,000 points)
  • 3x bonus points for your third stay (up to 200,000 points)
  • 4x bonus points starting with your fourth stay (up to 200,000 points)

The promotion is valid when you register and book by December 15, 2019, and travel through January 31, 2020.

With IHG Rewards Club you earn 10x points per dollar spent at most brands (5x points per dollar at Candlewood Suites and Staybridge Suites). So at most brands you’d be earning 40x IHG Rewards Club points per dollar spent starting with your fourth stay, even as a non-elite member.

You are however capped at 200,000 bonus points at each tier, so that means you’d earn an extra 30 points per dollar for the first ~$6,700 spent during the promotion period.

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 signed up for the IHG Card under the recent offer you earn 40x IHG Rewards Club points per dollar spent for the first 12 months

Combine This With Other IHG Promotions

This promotion has huge earning potential, though on top of that you can combine this with some other promotions being offered by IHG:

Bottom Line

This is a potentially generous new promotion from IHG, as you can earn 40x points per dollar spent at most brands starting with your fourth stay. You can even combine this with IHG’s other great promotions, which will mean that some members are earning 100+ IHG points per dollar spent.

Do you plan on taking advantage of IHG’s 4x points promotion?

  1. Trying to signup for this promotion on the site but cannot because the page asks for a ‘promo code’ in addition to IHG member number. Anybody know of this code?

  2. Does it have to be 100% cash (no points, no certificates) to count as an ‘IHG stay’ for promo purposes?

  3. @ Ben — Your headline surprised me since I initially didn’t think this promo was so great. However, I an extra 30 points per night at ~.35 cpp is 10.5% back, so that’s actually pretty good. I NEVER put any IHG spend on their credit cards since 10x (3.5%) back is weak for hotel spend. (Of course, those who got in on the recent intro offer of “40x” should definitely put their stays on their new card.) I’m gonna spend a lot of paid nights at ICs regardless, so I am happy to get more free points!

  4. This counts for existing reservations, yes? Or is it only on reservations made after registering for the promo?

  5. If you used his link then it wont’ ask for a promo code, otherwise the code is in his URL, like he said.


  6. So those who just got the card would get from the 4th stay
    40+5+10+15 = 70x right?
    That is incredible.

  7. Unless you are practically living in (the right) hotels, and spending a small fortune anyway, offers such as these are not exciting in the least.

  8. For anyone who signed up for their credit card with the “40x” offer the total earn starting on the fourth stay would be 30x + 40x = 70x. That’s 40x from this offer plus an incremental 30x because the “40x” from the credit cards includes the base 10x plus the 5x for Platinum.

    Still 70x assuming a value of $0.05/pt is a return of 35% on whatever rate you are paying.

  9. I was targeted even though I don’t hold the card and though I’ve only spent three nights at IHG properties so far this year (one at Kimpton, two at Holiday Inn). I registered, as I have two up-in-the-air vacations left this year and I might wind up at a Kimpton or IC depending upon which cities I choose to visit. We’ll see.
