Earn 5 IHG Rewards Club Points Per Dollar Spent on Apple Products

You can earn five IHG Rewards Club points per dollar spent on products manufactured by Apple when your purchase occurs prior to Wednesday, August 23, 2017.

Earn 5 IHG Rewards Club Points Per Dollar Spent on Apple Products

Points will be deposited into your IHG Rewards Club membership account only after the return period for the Apple product has elapsed, which is approximately 30 days. You will receive an e-mail message from IHG Rewards Club when the return period ends with more details about your award. Only items which pass the return period of 21 days qualify for the earning of IHG Rewards Club points. Any item that is returned during return period as imposed by Apple will not qualify to earn IHG Rewards Club points.

Rewards for eligible products are issued by this Internet web site and not by Apple — meaning that you cannot simply go to a physical store or the official Internet web site of Apple to take advantage of this offer.

Apple sells and ships products to end user customers only; you may not purchase for resale. Eligible only to a customer for up to five units per eligible product, except for iPhone models, in which case only two units within a period of 30 days are eligible.

The list of eligible products is subject to change and may do so at any time without notice.

You cannot direct the IHG Rewards Club points you earn to be deposited into a different membership account.

Other terms and conditions apply; but not eligible for this offer are:

  • Gift cards
  • Gift certificates
  • Any other cash equivalents similar to gift cards and gift certificates
  • Apple AirPods
  • Newly released products, which may not be eligible — whatever that means
  • Gift wrap
  • One to One Membership
  • Bose products
  • Shipping


I have used Apple products for years; and in my opinion — despite my preference — they are not as good today.

Incentives to purchase Apple products usually occur this time of year, when inventory is to be cleared out for the heralding of new products — such as the new iPhone models which are expected to be announced next month. If you do not mind having a product which will already be considered one step removed from the latest within a short period of time and you really need the IHG Rewards Club points, then this offer may be a decent deal…

…but if you cannot complete your purchase prior to Wednesday, August 23, 2017, then you can still earn four IHG Rewards Club points per dollar spent on products manufactured by Apple after that date.

If you are currently a student who is attending college or a university, you are more likely to be better off purchasing your Apple products using its Shop for College Internet web site, with which many products are instantly discounted with educational pricing.

Before deciding to take advantage of this offer, you may also want to keep an eye out for sales through physical stores and the Internet web sites of other merchants, as you may be able to purchase a product for a price which will save you more money than what the IHG Rewards Club points you would have otherwise earned be worth.

Regardless, I have no intention of taking advantage of this offer.
