…but you must register for your choice of offer with this promotion in advance of your first stay and book your reservations prior to Saturday, December 31, 2022; and you must be a member of the IHG One Rewards frequent guest loyalty program in order to participate in this promotion.

Registration for this promotion is now open; and your choice of offers are to earn either:

  • 2,000 bonus points every two qualifying nights
  • 10,000 bonus points every four qualifying nights

Once you choose your offer, you cannot switch to the other offer.

If you are not already a member of IHG One Rewards, you can join as a member now at no cost.

In addition to Mr & Mrs Smith hotel and resort properties, or participating Six Senses hotel and resort properties, the participating brands of InterContinental Hotels Group include:

Select Terms and Conditions

A qualifying stay is one which is booked for a minimum of one night under a qualifying rate, with total spend exceeding $30.00 in United States dollars. Bonus points will only be awarded from the base points earned with each qualifying stay once registered for this promotion.

The bonus points earned during the promotion can be used towards reward nights, can be redeemed for merchandise, or for other redemption opportunities. Bonus points earned during the promotion are not elite qualifying.

Only one room per member per qualifying stay will be awarded the applicable bonus points, or other benefits — if any — available under the applicable offer. If more than one member checks into the same room, only one member is eligible for the applicable bonus points, or other benefits — if any — available under the applicable promotion.

Members of the IHG One Rewards frequent guest loyalty program with a preference for earning airline miles will earn points.

No retroactive bonus points will be awarded for nights prior to registration in the promotion. Except as otherwise stated in the terms and conditions, please allow up to six weeks for promotion bonus points to be credited after checkout.

Other terms and conditions — including those of the IHG One Rewards frequent guest loyalty program — apply.

Other than the aspect of having to choose between two offers, this global promotion is not exactly what I would call exciting. I mean, we are talking about earning only 2,000 bonus points every two qualifying nights. If you know that you will stay at least four nights prior to the end of this promotion, earning 10,000 bonus points every four qualifying nights is obviously a better deal. — but not all that much more interesting.

Oh, well — I suppose this global promotion is better than nothing at all…

…and at least all members of the IHG One Rewards frequent guest loyalty program can now participate in this promotion.
