3 Ways to Earn IHG Rewards Club Points While Dining

As a member of the IHG Rewards Club frequent guest loyalty program, you have three ways to earn points while dining: through IHG Rewards Club Dine & Earn; booking a reservation through OpenTable; and food delivery when you order from Grubhub through InterContinental Hotels Group.

3 Ways to Earn IHG Rewards Club Points While Dining

With all of the three dining offers, please allow up to six weeks from the completion of the appropriate required activity for any bonus points to post to your IHG Rewards Club membership account.

Here are the details for each of the three dining offers…

1. IHG Rewards Club Dine & Earn

Earn up to eight points per United States dollar on every meal at greater than 10,000 restaurants throughout the United States with IHG Rewards Club Dine & Earn. Join for free today; then register your credit card and pay for your meals with your linked card.

Please note that all checks must be paid for with a credit or debit card registered with IHG Rewards Club Dining at the time of the visit. You may only earn this bonus once for a maximum amount of 1,000 IHG Rewards Club bonus points. This offer may not be combined with other IHG Rewards Club Dining bonuses; and each qualifying visit can only apply toward a single bonus, as determined by IHG Rewards Club Dining. All account inquiries related to this bonus must be received by Saturday, April 27, 2019.

Please note that some restaurants offer rewards only on certain days of the week or up to a maximum spending amount per month. For complete program Terms and Conditions guidelines, restrictions, and the latest rewards calendar, visit ihgrewardsclubdining.rewardsnetwork.com. Other limitations may apply.

This bonus offer is only available in the United States and is open to select IHG Rewards Club Dining members without a dining profile. To qualify for and earn this bonus, you must:

  1. Create a web login and register a valid credit card or debit card to your account by Thursday, December 27, 2018 at 11:59 in the evening Eastern Standard Time
  2. Spend at least $30.00 — including tax and tip — in one dine at any participating restaurant, bar or club within 30 days of joining IHG Rewards Club Dining
  3. Pay the check with a credit card or debit card registered to your IHG Rewards Club Dining account
  4. Complete an online review of the restaurant, bar, or club within 30 days of your qualifying visit
  5. Remain opted in to receive e-mail messages from IHG Rewards Club Dining with a valid, deliverable e-mail address, and
  6. Continue to satisfy all applicable online or elite level criteria until such time as the bonus posts to your IHG Rewards Club Dining account.

2. Open Table

Book an OpenTable reservation through InterContinental Hotels Group; dine; and earn up to 500 IHG Rewards Club points.

Interestingly, no other terms and conditions are immediately available for this offer.

3. Grubhub

Grubhub now delivers to greater than 1,000 IHG hotel properties — including those of the Holiday Inn Express, Staybridge Suites, and Candlewood Suites brands — and now you can earn up to 500 points on food delivery when you place your order from Grubhub through InterContinental Hotels Group. Place your first-ever order through this link and you will receive 500 IHG Rewards Club points; and 250 IHG Rewards Club Points for every subsequent order.

You must enter a valid IHG Rewards Club Member number and complete an order on Grubhub.com or its associated mobile software application program to qualify. Any cancelled or fraudulent Grubhub orders, as determined by Grubhub in its sole discretion, will not qualify for any IHG Rewards Club points. Any orders placed with affiliated brands of Grubhub will also not qualify.

Grubhub or IHG may modify or cancel this offer at any time. Offer may not be transferred or resold. Void where prohibited. Redemption requires a Grubhub account and acceptance of the Grubhub terms of use and privacy policy.

This offer is valid in the United States only; and only at select hotel and resort properties. Other terms and conditions — including those of the IHG Rewards Club frequent guest loyalty program — apply.


While I would not go out of my way to dine at a restaurant I would otherwise not patronize simply to earn points, these offers are a good way to add to your point balance in your IHG Rewards Club membership account while doing something you may eventually need to do anyway: dine out.
