Free Kindle eBooks For IHG Rewards Club Members Ends Soon

Did you know that you can receive your choice of eBooks — including mysteries, romance, historical influences, comic books and more — for your Amazon Kindle free of charge simply for being a member of IHG Rewards Club?

Free Kindle eBooks For IHG Rewards Club Members Ends Soon

You would have known about that benefit if you read this article — which was posted here at The Gate on Sunday, November 26, 2017 — but unfortunately, that benefit will end on Tuesday, December 31, 2019 at 11:59 in the evening Pacific Standard Time.

If you have been a member of the IHG Rewards Club frequent guest loyalty program, you may already have free Kindle eBooks — eBooks are short for electronic books or digital books — waiting and available for you to download, as they are offered as a tiered benefit to members of IHG Rewards Club as follows:

  • Club members with no elite level status will receive one free download bi-annually
  • Gold Elite status level members will receive one free download per quarter
  • Platinum Elite status level members will receive two free downloads per quarter
  • Spire Elite status level members will receive three free downloads per quarter

How to Get Your Free Electronic Books

You do not need an Amazon Kindle device — you can use practically any electronic device — in order to read any of the Kindle eBooks, which are available via the official mobile software application program of IHG Rewards Club and can be read on any device.

  1. Download the IHG Rewards Club mobile software application program — or update it if you already have it
  2. Join IHG Rewards Club as a member or sign In
  3. Click on your name in the top right corner to navigate to the Account Management site
  4. Scroll down to Your Extra Benefits: Kindle Singles


If you are a member of the IHG Rewards Club frequent guest loyalty program, check your e-mail account, as that is how I was originally alerted to this offer. To my knowledge, no generic link exists to this offer.

During the past two years, the selection has been rather sparse, as I had never downloaded an eBook because the selection is rather limited.

I do not know whether or not members of the IHG Rewards Club frequent guest loyalty program who have earned elite level status have access to a larger selection of eBooks.

Although none of the eBooks pique my interest, this is a nice benefit which has been offered from IHG Rewards Club — especially if you enjoy reading while traveling on an airplane or relaxing in a hotel room — although I do miss the free new music Fridays which was offered from Marriott Rewards in 2016

…but if you want to take advantage of this benefit, you have until the end of 2019 to do so; and while I dislike seeing the loss of a benefit in general, I will not miss it.

    While I’ll check again, this isn’t a big loss for me. Haven’t found any of the ebooks interesting enough to read 🙁
    IHG needs to recognize status on award stays!
