IHG One Rewards is back with an elite status fast track that we've seen a few times before. But, this offer is particularly generous in how long your new status will be valid. By staying just five nights within 90 days of registering, you can secure up to Platinum Elite status through December 31, 2024.

This promotion stacks nicely with a new IHG bonus points promotion to earn 2,000 bonus points for every two nights stayed.

The New IHG One Rewards Program

In April 2022, IHG revamped the IHG One Rewards program. IHG added a new Silver Elite status tier, changed Spire Elite to Diamond Elite, added a slew of new perks, and increased points qualification requirements dramatically. Here's what travelers now need to earn IHG One Rewards elite status:

IHG One Rewards elite status requirements

Some new perks available to Platinum Elite status include reward night discounts. Late check-out (subject to availability) was also added to all status levels. Platinum Elite status members can get a complimentary room upgrade and early check-in (both subject to availability).

IHG One Rewards Fast Track to Gold and Platinum Promo

IHG One Rewards members can register to earn up to Platinum Elite status after staying only five nights. All you need to do is register for the promotion by April 30, 2023. Stay just two qualifying nights within 90 days of registration to lock in Gold Elite through December 31, 2024. Stay a total of five nights within 90 days of registration to get Platinum Elite through December 31, 2024.

Terms and Conditions

  • Register by April 30, 2023.
  • Stays must be completed within 90 days of registration. So, you might want to wait to register until a day before a planned stay.
  • Members must register for this promotion before any qualifying nights can be counted. If you register while already in the middle of a stay, any nights that would otherwise qualify (e.g. after the start of the promotion) will count toward this promotion.
  • Qualifying stays must be valued at least $30 per night, excluding taxes, fees, and other charges.
  • Award nights won't count toward this promotion.
  • Bookings made through online travel agencies or other reservation sites such as booking.com or expedia.com are not eligible for this promotion.
  • Earn Gold Elite status by completing two qualifying nights within 90 days of registering. The member will then be able to reach Platinum Elite status by staying another three qualifying nights within the same Promotion Period.

Our Take

If you don't already have Platinum Elite status with IHG One Rewards, consider taking advantage of this promotion. It's certainly nice to see IHG One Rewards making its elite status more accessible to everyone. Of course, it's a great marketing move to incentivize members to book more rooms to get elite status.

Don't forget you'll already earn free Platinum Elite status with the IHG One Rewards Premier Credit Card or IHG One Rewards Premier Business Credit Card.

  • I finally succeeded in registration. You need your membership number & promotion code 20536!!

  • This doesn’t make sense. I could not sign up online. It said to call. I did. The person on the phone tells me the offer is ONLY good for people living in Greater China!

    Does this sound right? I don’t see that noted anywhere on this offer page.

    Also, I was Diamond. That was supposed to run out 12/31/2022. Everywhere I look still shows I have Diamond status. I was expecting it to run out so that’s why I was looking to move up via the Platinum Elite challenge.

    Also, the guy told me when they DO downgrade me, it is only “one level at a time” so I’ll still be Platinum Elite anyway. Is this correct?

    • We haven’t heard of IHG doing a “soft landing”, but that could be new to the new program. Let me know if that ends up happening!

      If you’re still showing as a Diamond Elite, you probably won’t be able to register for a fast track to Platinum Elite. I’d just recommend checking back (or have AwardWallet monitor your IHG account for status changes). Then, it you are downgraded, see if you can register for the promotion then.

  • Is this promotion only for people in the USA?

    • It doesn’t seem so. No geographic restrictions are noted in the terms and conditions. It simply states: “To participate in the “Fast Track to Elite Status” promotion (“Promotion”), an individual must be an IHG One Rewards member and must register for the Promotion under their member number.”

  • what is promo code? is it target promo?

  • I registered for the fast track elite offer but after my recent stay it stills mention STATUS: not started. The fact that I registered for the Diamond elite offer as well has anything to do with that?

  • What’s the promotion code?

  • Any cheap IHG hotels for mattress run in US?

  • Wouldn’t it be easier to just go “straight to Diamond”? Why waste time?

  • I agree this is weird wording for the goal but why not register. Even in the fine print it says that even if there is success in registering you still may not qualify to get the bonuses? so odd, but can’t hurt to just put it in and see if you can get a higher status.

  • Anyone know of any IHG properties within a 4-5hr flight from the UK within the $30-$50 price range which could be interesting for a two week stay ?!

    Got 4 trips planned already this year none in IHG properties unfortunately but fancy that Diamond status for next year.
