IHG recently announced it won’t be releasing a new PointBreaks list at this time or possibly ever again (we don’t know for certain) and it also isn’t running another version of its Accelerate promotion at this moment. What is available for now is a new offer advertising up to 4x bonus points on stays. The promotion is valid for stays from February 15 to May 15, but you’ve only got until April 15 to register.

While this IHG promotion advertises 4x points, if you have the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card you can earn up to 55x points. I’ll explain more below.

IHG 4x points promotion

Register by: Apr. 15, 2020

Travel dates: Feb. 15 to May. 15, 2020

Important terms:

  • Must register (use promotion code 63881) and book your stay by April 15, 2020
  • You’ll earn bonus points in the following way:
    • Earn 1,000 bonus points after your first night
    • Earn 2x bonus points on nights 2-5 (up to 100,000 bonus points)
    • Earn 3x bonus points on nights 6-14 (up to 100,000 bonus points)
    • Earn 4x bonus points on night 15 and beyond (up to 100,000 bonus points)
  • Your qualifying stay must cost $30 or more
  • Maximum bonus points allowed per member during the promotion is 301,000

Promotion link: IHG 4x promotion

Frankly, there aren’t a lot of interesting hotel promotions out there, so that alone means this one is worth at least looking at a bit more. You earn 10x IHG points at every IHG brand except for Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites:

That means after your 15th qualifying night you’ll be pulling in 40 IHG points per dollar. Now, With the IHG Premier card you get 10x bonus points at IHG hotels and resorts and you get IHG Platinum status. Platinum status has a variety of ho-hum benefits, but you do get a 50% bonus on the base points you earn, which equates to 5x points on IHG stays (not including Staybridge or Candlewood suites).

Add that all up and you’re looking at 55x IHG points for your 15th night and beyond. We value IHG points at around .5 cents each, so that’s a stellar 27.5% return. I don’t recommend going out of your way to stay 15 nights at IHG properties, but it’s worth registering for the promo and taking a look at your plans to see if it’s something you might be able to do without spending more.

uI’m a Spire elite member with the premier IHG card. I’m going to stay throughout the length of the promotion. How many points from all of the different avenues should I get? Thank you.

Does the 10% rebate on point redemptions still apply. I have the old card, but don’t see getting any points back.

I have the old card, and I just got the 10% rebate on a stay in November. It was a four night stay where I got the 4th night free, so the 10% back is still a benefit that stacks. Four nights in a 25K per night hotel for a net 67,500 points.

I know they got rid of it on the newer refreshed IHG card, so unless they changed something on the old card, I’d think you should be receiving the 10%.

Can you check and see what their customer support says?

I just received my accelerate bonus offer, and it’s the simplest one I’ve gotten yet: double points on all paid stays after the first, up to 40,000 points. Maybe that’s a slightly smaller payoff than the best offers, but I like that it kicks in with very little effort and doesn’t require a lot of planning or multiple brand combinations, or stays on specific days. So I’m good.

Awesome! Gotta love it when the offer terms are simple 🙂

Thanks for sharing!

If I have a 3 night stay (May 13-16) that I booked before the promo started, will it still credit towards the promo?

Hi Jayson,

One of the terms states:

-No bonus points will be awarded for stays prior to registration

So it doesn’t sound like that would work, unfortunately.

So if it’s blank when I click on it. Does that mean I don’t have any offers? I guess I’m not staying at IHG again this quarter.
