IHG Rewards just launched a new promotion, offering up to 4x bonus points for stays with the hotel program now through Jan. 31, 2020. Members must register before booking and book by Dec. 15, 2019 to qualify for this offer.

In an effort to encourage members to book incremental stays with IHG, this promotion is set up as a progressive offer. After registering, members will earn:

  • 1,000 bonus points for the first stay
  • 2x bonus points for the second stay
  • 3x bonus points for the third stay
  • 4x bonus points for the fourth and future stays

There are some important terms and conditions to keep in mind. For a stay to qualify for this promotion, the “total spend” for the stay must be at least $30. Also, you can’t check out and check back in to the same hotel to earn another stay as a stay is defined as “one night or consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of frequency of check-in/out.”

There are a number of types of bookings that don’t qualifying for this promotion — including:

net wholesale individual and group rate, certain package rates, employee discount rate, friends and family rate, crew rate, special discounted contract rates, seasonal worker/crew rate, 50% travel club discount rate, travel industry discount rate, distressed passenger rate, IHG® Rewards Club Reward Nights/Airline Hotel Reward rate, rates booked through third party web sites, complimentary hotel Stays and any other rates not defined as a Qualifying Room Rate at IHG’s sole discretion

Register for the promotion here.

Although it’s unclear in the terms and conditions, an IHG representative has confirmed that the multiplier will only be on the base earnings from the stay. IHG Rewards elites — who earn up to 100% bonus points — will not have their elite bonuses multiplied.

That means that for the fourth and future qualifying stays, this is the earning chart for each elite tier:

per dollar spent
Base Bonus Elite Total TPG
Club 10 30 0 40 $0.20
Gold Elite 10 30 1 41 $0.21
Platinum Elite 10 30 5 45 $0.23
Spire Elite 10 30 10 50 $0.25

Per the terms and conditions, the maximum number of points that you can earn from each stay is 200,000.
