Following hot on the heels of the latest Accelerate promotion is a targeted offer for IHG status holders. IHG® Rewards Club Platinum Elite members can save 12% on Points & Cash stays booked before September 18, 2016, valid for all stays through November 30, 2016. Tip: If you have the IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card, you automatically receive Platinum Elite status within the IHG Rewards Club loyalty program.
How to Participate in IHG Points & Cash Discounts
The promotion is only open to IHG Rewards Club members with Platinum Elite status at the time of booking. There is no registration process, all you need to do is sign into your Rewards Club account and search for your chosen destination.
Points & Cash options will show up when available with the 12% discount included for the cash portion of the reservation.
Don't have IHG Platinum Elite status?
Sandwiched in between Gold and Spire Elite, IHG offers several different paths to Platinum. To qualify for Platinum via traditional methods typically requires 40 nights or 40,000 elite-qualifying points, a substantial investment to reach either number.
The fastest and easiest way to Platinum Elite status is through the IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card; simply be being a cardmember you receive the status. Another benefit of the IHG Rewards Card is a 10% rebate on award redemptions, up to a maximum of 100,000 points per year. So, for this Points & Cash promotion; IHG Select cardholders would receive:
- A 12% discount on the cash portion
- Earn 20 rewards points per dollar if paying with the card (10 base points + 50% bonus for Platinum status + 5 bonus points for IHG Rewards Card)
- A 10% rebate on the points redeemed.
Cardholders can also take advantage of the best free anniversary night of any credit card we have reviewed, redeemable at any IHG hotel worldwide, with no date restrictions. Check out our full review of the IHG Rewards Card.
Receiving 12% off the cash portion of a Points & Cash stay on its own won't be enough for me to switch any nights to IHG. But when combined with the 10% rebate on redeemed points for IHG Rewards Card account holders, and earning 20 points per/$1 spent if paying with the IHG Rewards Card, the offer starts to look more compelling.
If you're an IHG Rewards Platinum Elite member with stays yet to book for Fall travel, jump over to the IHG website and see if you can book a bargain Points & Cash stay.
