Terms apply to the offers and benefits listed on this page.
Not only is there an amazing 140,000 point initial bonus offer for the IHGR Rewards Club Premier Credit Card (after $3000 spending on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening) but IHG Rewards Club – the loyalty program for Intercontinental, Kimpton, Holiday Inn and related brands – has a new promotion out to earn not just double, or even triple, but quadruple points.
IHG’s last promotion also let you earn up to quadruple points. That ended January 31. Quadruple points were enough of a hit that that’s the headline offer again, but they’ve changed how the points are earned.
Stays between February 15 and May 15, 2020 earn increasingly bigger bonuses the more you stay with the chain. (Registration required, opening soon, must be complete by April 15.)
- First night: 1000 bonus points
- Nights 2-5: Double points – 10 bonus points per dollar – (up to 100k points)
- Nights 6-14: Triple points – 20 bonus points per dollar – (up to 100k points)
- Nights 15+: Quadruple points – 30 bonus points per dollar – (up to 100k points)
All nights booked direct with IHG with a minimum $30 room rate are eligible. Elite bonuses are on top of this bonus earning.
Standard earning is 10 points per dollar. IHGR Rewards Club Premier Credit Card cardholders receive Platinum status. A cardmember on their 15th night earns 45 points per dollar spent. Pay with the card, which earns 10 points per dollar at IHG hotels, and it’s 55 points per dollar in earning. Valued at half a cent each, that’s a 27.5% rebate on hotel spend.
