IHG is currently offering a promotion where you can earn 10,000 bonus points when staying at nineteen new and featured properties. TPG’s latest valuation values these points at $60, but you might value this bonus even higher since 10k points are enough for two nights at a 5,000-point PointsBreaks property or one night at a Category 1 property.

The Details

Unfortunately, the details of the promotion are vague and the promotion web page doesn’t show any terms or conditions. Here are the details as I understand them:

  • Stay 2+ nights at an eligible hotel and get 10,000 IHG points.
    • The promotion doesn’t specifically require 2+ nights, but I’ve failed to find an eligible stay of just one night.
  • The promotion doesn’t list a maximum number of points that can be earned.
  • Stays must be booked by September 30, 2018. The stay must be completed by October 31, 2018.
  • Search for and book hotels from the promotion page at this link, as otherwise the promotion will not show up and you won’t receive the bonus points.

Eligible Properties

The following 19 properties are listed on the promotion page:

  • Georgia: Holiday Inn Express & Suites Atlanta N – Woodstock
  • Georgia: Holiday Inn Resort Jekyll Island
  • Florida: EVEN Hotel Sarasota – Lakewood Ranch
  • Florida: Holiday Inn Express & Suites Marathon
  • Florida: Holiday Inn Orlando-International Airport
  • Florida: Staybridge Suites Naples – Gulf Coast
  • New Jersey: Candlewood Suites Jersey City
  • New York: InterContinental New York Times Square
  • New York: Staybridge Suites: Times Square – New York City
  • Oregon: EVEN Hotel Eugene
  • Pennsylvania: Hotel Indigo Harrisburg – Hershey
  • Pennsylvania: Hotel Indigo Pittsburgh East Liberty
  • South Dakota: Holiday Inn & Suites Sioux Falls – Airport
  • Texas: Staybridge Suites Lake Jackson
  • Washington: EVEN Hotels Seattle – South Lake Union
  • Washington: Holiday Inn & Suites Bellingham
  • Washington: Staybridge Suites Seattle – South Lake Union
  • Canada: Staybridge Suites Niagara-On-The-Lake
  • Colombia: Crowne Plaza Barranquilla

Be Careful

The “IHG® Rewards Club — 10,000 Bonus Points” rate may not always be best, especially if you are ready to make a non-refundable reservation or don’t value IHG points very highly.

Bottom Line

This is a loosely defined promotion that has the potential to provide excellent value. However, in a quick search of many of the eligible properties, I was unable to find any low nightly rates using the promotion’s rate. So, this promotion won’t be worth mattress-running for — but it could provide value if you’re already planning on visiting one of these cities.
