Summary

Seeing a reasonably decent deal pertaining to earning frequent guest loyalty program points has been increasingly rare in recent years; and this offer requires a minimum spend of $75.00 — including tax and tip — for 3,000 points. That comes out to 2.5 cents per point, if you can actually manage to work this offer to its maximum efficiency; and that is potentially a decent deal if you intended on dining at the participating establishments anyway during the promotion period…

…but in my opinion, this is not as good of a deal as a similar offer with which you can earn up to 3,000 bonus American Airlines AAdvantage miles when you sign up as a new member of the AAdvantage Dining program by Tuesday, October 31, 2017 and spend as little as $28.00 for dining four times. That comes out to less than .94 cents per mile — yes, the decimal point is in the correct place, if my math is correct — if you can actually manage to work that offer to its maximum efficiency; and that is potentially an excellent deal.

That this offer is only available to new members of the IHG Rewards Club Dining program seems unfair to those people who are already members…
