Earn Up to Triple IHG Rewards Club Points With Holiday Inn Express — But…

You can earn up to triple IHG Rewards Club points when you stay at participating Holiday Inn Express hotel properties — but you must register for this promotion in advance of your first stay, as the registration link has now been activated; and you must stay a minimum of three consecutive nights between Tuesday, August 1, 2017 and Saturday, September 30, 2017.

More specifically, you will earn:

  • Triple IHG Rewards Club points for staying on weekend qualifying nights Friday through Sunday

Earn Up to Triple IHG Rewards Club Points With Holiday Inn Express — But…

The maximum amount of bonus points which you can earn through this offer is 25,000 bonus IHG Rewards Club points during the promotion period.

In order to participate in this promotion, you must be a member of the IHG Rewards Club frequent guest loyalty program in the Americas region; and members from Québec are not eligible to participate in this promotion.

The average daily rate will be calculated for each qualifying stay. Double and triple bonus IHG Rewards Club points will be awarded based on the average daily rate. For example: if you check in at a participating Holiday Inn Express hotel property on Thursday, August 10, 2017 and check out on Sunday, August 13, 2017, and the room rate is $100.00 on Thursday night and $150.00 on Friday night and again on Saturday night, your average daily room rate is $133.33. You would earn a total of 10,650 IHG Rewards Club points — 6,650 of which would be bonus points — as deconstructed in this example:

  • Total base bonus IHG Rewards Club points earned on qualifying stay = 4,000 points
  • Double bonus bonus IHG Rewards Club points awarded for Thursday night = 1,330 bonus points
  • Triple bonus bonus IHG Rewards Club points awarded for Friday night = 2,660 bonus points
  • Triple bonus bonus IHG Rewards Club points awarded for Saturday night = 2,660 bonus points

Select Terms and Conditions

A qualifying stay is defined as three or more consecutive nights at the same Holiday Inn Express hotel property when paying qualifying rates, which include most business and leisure rates at Holiday Inn Express hotels worldwide.

Only one room per member per stay will be awarded the applicable bonus IHG Rewards Club points. No retroactive IHG Rewards Club points will be awarded for stays prior to registration. At the end of the promotion, you can choose to have the bonus IHG Rewards Club points converted into frequent flier loyalty program miles by calling the service center as per the IHG Rewards Club membership terms and conditions.

Please allow up to six weeks for points to be credited after checkout. This Promotion is subject to standard IHG Rewards Club membership terms and conditions and earning structure, which can be obtained by visiting www.ihgrewardsclub.com. Members must make any promotional inquiries within 60 days from the end of the campaign, after which members will no longer be able inquire about discrepancies in IHG Rewards Club points received.

Other terms and conditions may apply.

Double and triple bonus points are not issued for stays booked through an Internet travel agency or for non-qualifying room rates and non-qualifying stays — which are subject to standard IHG Rewards Club membership terms and conditions — and include the following:

  • Net wholesale individual and group rates
  • Certain package rates
  • Employee discount rate
  • Friends and family rate
  • Crew rate
  • Special discounted contract rates
  • Seasonal worker or crew rate
  • 50 percent travel club discount rate
  • Travel industry discount rate
  • Distressed passenger rate
  • IHG Rewards Club reward nights or airline hotel reward rate
  • Most rates booked through most third party Internet web sites
  • Complimentary hotel stays
  • Any other rates not defined as a qualifying room rate.

Summary

This offer can be a good way to earn an extra 25,000 IHG Rewards Club points within two months; but the requirement of staying a minimum of three consecutive nights per stay disinterests me when pertaining to my typical travel patterns.

Moreover, note that the offer is restricted to members of the IHG Rewards Club frequent guest loyalty program in the Americas — assuming that generally means the western hemisphere — but is purportedly valid at participating Holiday Inn Express hotel properties worldwide.

    Is this click bate? You need a promo code to register. If you didn’t get the email sent to you personaly, you wouldn’t know what that was. I don’t see the promo code listed in your blog.

      No, it is not “click bait”, Keith.

      If you go to the official Internet web site of Holiday Inn Express…

      https://www.ihg.com/holidayinnexpress/hotels/us/en/reservation

      …the carousel banner displayed there immediately advertises the offer about which I wrote; and all you need to do is click on the banner to begin the quick process to register for this offer.

    For the record, I clicked on the green “link” within your post and it took me to a registration page on the IHG website for this promotion. There are 2 lines. 1 for entering your email or IHG rwards account number, The 2nd line asks for a promotion code to qualify.

    I’ll try the link you provided to my last comment to see if I get a different result.

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      Please let me know if you are still having problems registering for this offer, Keith.

      Very rarely do I ever write articles about targeted offers; and there is no indication which I have seen anywhere that this offer is targeted.

  3. Keith says:

    Brian,

    I don’t know. I’ve tried the additional IHG link you provided, it only takes me to the main log in page. Not the promotional page.

    So as it stands, I’ll assume the promotion you touted is targeted.
