Prior to late 2020, IHG was pretty much the only large hotel chain with an established loyalty program that did not participate in a tiered stay more and earn style incentive. But now, IHG has joined the party. Kinda.
Earlier this year, IHG launched a promotion for targeted members to earn more points than ever through IHG's Milestone Bonus promotion. And, as travelers consider where to stay on trips this fall, we wanted to remind you about this promotion.
IHG Rewards Milestone Bonus
Here's an overview of how it works:
- Earn 10,000 bonus IHG Rewards points every 10 nights in 2021
- Earn 30,000 bonus IHG Rewards points (instead of 10k) upon reaching 40 nights
- To count, nights must cost at least $30 per night
- Promotion runs through December 31, 2021
Stays starting before December 31, but continuing into 2022 will only receive the bonus on the nights stayed in 2021. You can read the full terms and conditions here.
Who's Eligible for IHG Milestone Bonus?
Eligible members should have received an email. If you received an email, you should be able to verify by heading over to the IHG website and checking there. Log in to your account and navigate to the My Account tab and click on it. Once there, locate the Messages option.
If you have been targeted for the offer, you should see the promotion there.
But, if you never received the email yet you still see an eligibility confirmation in your IHG Messages, it could possibly be a mistake. According to IHG:
“If the offer is not received by an invitation email, but appears in the member account, the member is not eligible. This offer may have appeared in some accounts, but that member did not receive the personal invitation. Only members who receive the personal invitation email are eligible to participate.”
You'll have to contact customer service to confirm if you are unsure.
Other Ways to Earn IHG Points
Having an IHG credit card like the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card is a great way to sweeten this promotion a bit. Cardholders receive complimentary Platinum Elite status. Although it isn't the best mid-tier status available, IHG Platinum Elite does offer the following perks:
- 50% bonus earnings on top of the base points
- Complimentary upgrades
- Priority check-in
- A welcome amenity
- $30 in-room spa credit at participating properties
IHG's Milestone Bonus promo isn't earth-shattering by any means. But having the ability to earn a little more on your stays is always a nice perk. Just make sure to check your email to see if you're targeted.
