IHG One Rewards is lining up one promotion after another. Through the end of 2023, members can earn 2,000 points every two nights. Further, depending on where you're going, you could get 15%, 20%, or up to 30% off on rates. Other promotions have ongoing stays, though the booking windows have closed.

Here's a look at all of the current IHG promotions and how to take advantage of these to either save on a stay or rack up points.

Global IHG Promotion

2,000 IHG points every 2 nights

IHG 2,000 Bonus Points Promotion

This is a great IHG promotion for more reasons than one. It's available worldwide, and there's no limit to how many points members can earn — other than the length of the offer. Between October 12 and December 31, 2023, IHG members will earn 2,000 bonus points for every two nights spent at IHG properties across the world. Members can pre-register for this promotion, or register any time during the promotion. Bonus points will only accrue after registering.

Members are unable to earn points on their stay if the nightly rate is less than $30 or if they use rewards nights or Points & Cash. Nights do not have to be consecutive, so two one-night stays will still earn 2,000 bonus points. Any nights completed before October 12, even if the stay terminates on or after October 12, will not earn bonus points.

Our Take

These IHG promotions make it worthwhile to book a few stays at IHG properties this year to save money. Earning 2,000 bonus points every two nights might not be as good as previous promotions offering triple points. However, it definitely benefits members looking at cheaper IHG properties through the end of the year. Or you could snag a discount of up to 30% off, depending on where you're headed.

Don't forget to use an IHG co-branded credit card — such as the IHG One Rewards Premier Card — to maximize your earnings at IHG properties.

Wherever your travel plans take you, there should be an IHG promotion that fits your plans and helps you save money or rack up a bunch of points. Also, you can read our guide to the IHG One Rewards program to help maximize your rewards.

  • Many of these promos are targeted. That and the absolutely horrible IHG website and apps, registering for promos that one is qualified for, is a nightmare.

  • Good info. Thanks.

  • Fernando Farache says:

    Excelente artículo!

  • Re: flash sale for Cyber Week offering members 10,000 bonus points for every two nights stayed at IHG properties, but you must register and book by midnight on November 29.

    This doesn’t show anywhere on my member offers page when signed in, and when I click through your link, it asks for the promo code. Is this a targeted promo? Maybe it doesn’t work for members who live outside the US?

    I’m Platinum Elite (thanks to you!) but have not been receiving IGH offers (including Black Friday/Cyber Week offers) since I registered for 10,000 points every 4 nights.. Maybe I’ve been giving them too much business this fall? LOL

    Thanks for all the info you share!

  • This will be a good way to earn a few bonus points!

  • RICHARD ` says:

    Thanks for the comprehensive review of this IHG bonus/ While this is not my primary program I do collect IHG points and this article helps me keep up to date.

  • Any idea if the 2x points promo also includes Mr and Mrs Smith properties?

    • Nate – “Members who complete qualifying nights during the Promotion Period as part of a Qualifying Stay with a Qualifying Rate at any participating IHG® Hotels & Resorts globally will receive DOUBLE the points they would have received”. There’s no mention of any hotels being excluded.

  • IHG is trying to get back into promotions, but they are greatly watered down.

  • Registered. Now the question is where do I want to stay?

  • Linda Mary Falat says:

    I applied, they lost my application even after they checked my credit score and sent me a letter. Now the 150,000 points plus offer has expired. Was on the phone over 3 hours to be told too bad so sad offer expired. But I said I applied, you checked my credit and sent me a letter which I responded.

    They don’t care.

    • Chase also will not let customers hold more than one IHG CC.

      • JT Genter says:

        EDIT: IHG and Chase changed their terms so that you can not longer get the IHG Premier if you have the IHG Select.
        ORIGINAL COMMENT: Technically, you can. I have both the Select and the Premier. But the sign-up bonus rules can prevent you from getting a bonus on multiple cards in a short period of time.

        • I had an agent specifically tell me that one can only hold a personal and a business IHG CC. They are not approving individuals who have the old Select card, for another personal card. I called the recon line and was told if I wanted a Premier card to product change my Select card to a Premier.

          • That is correct. IHG and Chase recently changed their terms so that you can no longer sign up for both cards. Previously, you could sign up for both (and I still have the Select and Premier). If you have the Select currently, I’d be tempted to hold onto it.

          • That’s now correct. Unfortunately, Chase and IHG changed their terms regarding this matter. I’ve updated my comment above.

      • Not true, I have 2 as we speak


    Muy buenas promociones de IHG, las estoy analizando seriamente, gracias por la informacion.

  • Unfortunately not for non US residents.

  • Thanks for this. Very much looking forward to resuming travel.

  • I hope they’ll extend the date by which free anniversary nights must be used, for those of us uncomfortable traveling during the pandemic.

  • Javier Pojaghi says:

    Buenos días, lamentablemente en la Argentina por el momento las tarjetas tienen suspendidas la suma de millas, espero que se soluciones prontamente.

  • The IHG card is one of my faves – love the free annual night and also that it cover Global Entry/Pre-check renewal once every 4 years…I’ve enjoyed staying at Intercontinentals in Paris & Bangkok with the free nite benefit as well as the beach in SC.

  • Pleasantly surprised with my recent stay at an intercontinental hotel. will choose them again.

  • Amazing offer from IHG here for the holidays. Great job to the Marketing team.

  • Always worth signing up. Even thought this is not my preferred program, you never know when you need a last minute hotel stay at an airport. IHG is great for those times.

  • Now it is the time for redeeming the IHG points, it is a good idscount

  • Now that I have their IHG credit card, will definitely be taking advantage of these promotions, good timing.

  • This offer is good through Sept 2022 at some but not all properties. At kimpton properties it is only good through April 2022. I haven’t looked at the other high end IHG properties. Here is the link to the kimpton offer page


  • The 25% isn’t always offered through Sept 2022. The Kimpton properties, for instance, only offer it through April 30. Here’s a link to the policy

  • Well this is a welcome surprise for us folks using IHG… They are my go to for business stays for sure.

  • Actually not a bad promo, especially when comparing to Marriott.

  • I’m not an IHG member so joining and getting a credit card sounds like the first priority, but the promos sound worthwhile. The Premier card sounds good since it gives elite status. I am not sure how valuable IHG points are so don’t know which current award promotion is best, but the one that ends in September seems like it’ll be too short a period for me to attempt to earn the necessary stays so I would have to opt for the up to 3x bonus points as the promotion I prefer.

  • 6000 puntos me parece muy poco. Creo que ha habido mejores promociones para aprovechar. Tendremos que seguir esperando y estar atentos

  • Better than nothing…

  • Super easy to see if you qualify and sign up.

  • Not sure I’ll take advantage of this, but it doesn’t take much time to register. Thanks.

  • This promo is nice but it wont make me change any hotel reservations. 6000 points does not really get you anything.

  • IHG has devalued redemption so much that 6000 points is worth like 3 bucks

  • A lot of nights for just a 6k bonus but a promotion never the less, more than what Marriott seems to be offering right now

  • The promotino of 3K points($15 value) for two nights ($7.5 per night) is not very appealing.

  • The bonus offer is hard to pass up when even stays at Holiday Express properties will net many points.

  • Yes. I was targeted. Perhaps a weekend getaway is in order now.

  • Not enough for a free night, but I’ll take free points.

  • Just checked and it said I don’t get the offer.I’m a platinum elite so figured I would… wrong. Oh well…

  • 6000 points are all good and dandy, but redemption value is crap with IHG.

    • Depends on the type of property! I just stayed at a Holiday Inn in the Financial District of NYC for just 18k points per night (after 4th night free). But yeah, for InterCons, IHG redemption rates can be astronomical.

  • Great info and nice opportunity to earn some bonus points!

  • Thanks for the heads up. I have to use my anniversary nights (and am contemplating giving them as a gift, since I’m not keen to travel right now), so this promo dovetails nicely.

  • Good bonus offered. Hope to be able to travel soon.

  • 30 dollars minimum included taxes,or just based rate?

    • The T&C state: “a minimum 1-night stay booked under a Qualifying Rate, with total spend exceeding US $30”. I’d assume that “total spend” doesn’t include taxes, but it would include resort/destination fees.

  • That 10k for one stay harkens back to the days when IHG promos were crazy stackable!

  • Pablo Quilis says:

    I want the 100% bonus promotion when you buy points again, please!

  • Thank you for this info! I will be using our IHG Premier card for this promotion. We like IHG as their hotels are always reliable quality and we never need anything fancy. We get a lot of value out of the points.

  • I’m pretty sure I have already signed up but when I went to your link (to double check) it asked me for a code. I definitely want to sign up despite it not being a particularly good deal compared to what other hotels are offering. I’m going to sign up for Intercontinental Ambassador and need to make one stay at an Intercontinental or a Kimpton. (To get the extra free night bonus) May as well get an extra 10K points for that stay. One thing that is not clear however, do we need to use the IHG credit card for the extra points or is just being a credit card holder enough to get the bonus?

    • The terms and conditions are unclear. I’ll probably use my IHG Premier for my stay anyways for the 10X points on spending. However, it seems that you don’t have to use the card for the stay.

      • I completed my stay at the Kimpton and paid with my Amex card to take advantage of that offer. I did get the 2x points of course. This morning I was surprised to see that I also got the 10 000 points from this promotion for being a cardmember! Even though I did not use the card, it kicked in anyway. I find that the IHG program is quite generous with their points…I just wish their elite benefits were better.

        • Nice! This cardholder offer was directly from IHG. We noticed that it didn’t explicitly state that you needed to use your card. So, it’s good to have confirmation of that!

  • Does a cardholder have to actually charge the stay on the card to get the 10,000 point bonus?

    • It doesn’t seem so. But the T&C gives IHG the “right of final interpretation of this Offer”, which isn’t an interesting catch-all.

      Here’s the full T&C on this offer:
      “For cardmembers using an IHG® Rewards Club Credit Card from Chase, an additional 10,000 Bonus Points will be awarded on your first qualifying stay during the promotional period at any IHG® Hotel and Resort worldwide. Please allow up to 4 to 6 weeks for Promotion bonus points to be credited. For new Chase IHG Rewards Club Credit Card accounts opened during the promotional period, please allow 4 to 6 weeks after the promotional period for bonus points to be credited. The 10,000 Bonus Points cardmembers earn from this promotion are separate from points earned from credit card spend on IHG transactions. IHG reserves the right of final interpretation of this Offer. This offer is not from Chase. Chase is not responsible for the provision of, or failure to provide, the stated benefits and services. Bonus points will post directly to your IHG® Rewards Club account and will not appear on your credit card statement.”

  • When I try to register, It asks me for a promo code. Did I miss that somewhere?

  • Steven William Van Meter says:

    I have IHG and I really like the convenience. It’s nice to be able to cancel all your reservations with only one phone call. Good deal.

  • Just signed up. Sometimes have to stay in a hotel for work now, build points now and hope to travel later.

  • More than promos to earn I would prefer promos to spend.
    This is even more true after the end of the PointBreaks promo.

  • I won’t be able to pad my balance with this offer, but I finally dipped below 5/24 and picked up the Premier card, so I should be flush with points by the time travel gets close to normal again. Thanks!

  • I really wonder who is actually able to take advantage of these amazing offers?

    • I definitely understand your envy and share it, but consider the fact that many of the folks taking advantage of these offers are likely being forced to travel for one reason or another – they’re essential workers; it’s an emergency; or they feel compelled to maintain job security, etc. – in what many consider somewhat unsafe conditions.

    • Someone like me who lives in an IHG hotel.

  • Hope I feel comfortable traveling soon so I can utilize this bonus.

  • Maria Gabriela Yaben Bruno says:

    Its only foe US residents? What happens with foreigner residents?

    • We tried looking for a while for offers available to non-US residents and couldn’t find anything currently available. Let us know if you see something on your account though!

  • This is a really good offer for those that are eligible. It is a shame it is restricted and not worldwide.

  • Does this apply to all brands and countries?

  • Americans can earn more IHG points from vacationing in the USA this summer since the borders are pretty much closed.

  • Does
    Bonus points get multiplied as well. Or only stayed poitns.

  • Always sign up. You never know when travel plans will be needed.

  • I realy love IHG over other Hotel brands, thanks

  • Thank you IHG, I will start making bookings at your properties
