Update: The registration and booking period for this promotion has ended; if you've already registered, any stays which were booked prior to December 15th and will be completed by January 31st will be eligible for the bonus earning.
IHG has announced a promotion earning you 4X points per stay from your fourth stay. Your second and third stays will earn 2X and 3X points respectively. To take advantage of the offer, you need to register and book by December 15, 2019. The promotion is valid for stays through January 31, 2019.
- You need to register for the promotion and book by December 15, 2019.
- The offer is valid for stays through January 31, 2019.
- Earn 1,000 bonus points for your first stay.
- Earn 2X points for your second stay up to a maximum of 200,000 points.
- Earn 3X points for your third stay up to a maximum of 200,000 points.

Registration Note: Some readers have reported being prompted for a promotion code when attempting to register. The code should be 87594. (Please let us know in the comments if this is still not working.)
While the terms ask you to allow 2-3 weeks for the bonus to post to your account, this may not be the case. I recently completed two stays using the promotion, and the bonus points posted immediately to my account.
Does the Promotion Stack
IHG frequently runs several promotions at the same time, and while typically, you won't be able to stack all of them to maximize your earnings, this is not the case with this offer. The 4X promotion will stack with IHG’s fall accelerate promotion. (Although registration is now closed, you still have until December 31st to complete your Accelerate offers.)
With the promotion period covering the holiday season, this deal is an easy win—especially if you already have a few stays planned in the coming months. It takes only a few seconds to register, and if you can plan your longest stay so that it earns quadruple points, then this promotion can be a big earner.
