With IHG’s new Priceless Experiences promotion, Mastercard cardholders can earn up to a $100 Mastercard gift card after completing 2 stays at IHG hotels between November 1, 2017, and February 1, 2018.
I’ll share the details, and help you decide if it’s worth shifting paid stays to IHG to participate in the deal!
IHG Priceless Experiences Mastercard Promotion
Link: IHG Hotels
To participate in this year’s IHG Priceless Experiences, you must be a Mastercard holder as of October 31, 2017. And you must register for the promotion with your IHG Rewards Club number (free to join).
IHG hotels include Candlewood Suites, Crowne Plaza, EVEN Hotels, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Club Vacations, Holiday Inn Express, Holiday Inn Resorts, Hotel Indigo, Hualuxe, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, and Staybridge Suites brand hotels.
After your second stay, you’ll earn a Mastercard gift card, but its value depends on which IHG hotels you stay at:
- InterContinental Hotels & Resorts – $100 gift card
- Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, EVEN Hotels – $75 gift card
- Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Club Vacations, Holiday Inn Express, Holiday Inn Resorts, Hualuxe, Candlewood Suites, Staybridge Suites – $50 gift card
Once you’ve earned a Mastercard gift card, you can earn 4,000 IHG bonus points after staying 2+ nights at any IHG hotel. But you must book directly through IHG and pay with a Mastercard to qualify.
Is It Worth It?
Taking advantage of this deal is a no-brainer if you have paid stays coming up at any IHG hotels. And I’d suggest registering even if you don’t, because it takes ~30 seconds, and you never know if you’ll plan a last-minute trip!
That said, I would NOT go out of my way to participate in this promotion. Because you might be able to get a better deal elsewhere. So shop around to make sure you’re getting the best price, even after you take the gift card into account. 😉
And don’t forget, if you’re looking to earn more IHG points, consider the Chase IHG card. Or get a card that earns Chase Ultimate Rewards points that you can transfer to IHG at a 1:1 ratio, like the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Sapphire Reserve, or Chase Ink Business Preferred.
You could earn up to a $100 Mastercard gift card after 2 stays with IHG’s new Priceless Experiences promotion. To participate, you must register for the promotion, be a Mastercard holder, and book with your Mastercard directly through IHG.
Valid travel dates are between November 1, 2017, and February 1, 2018.
