In September, IHG launched a new Double Points Plus More promotion. Although this promotion was scheduled to end on Dec. 16, IHG has extended it through Dec. 31. But perhaps even better for IHG power-users: The double points you can earn during the promotion are now unlimited.

You can see the promotion on IHG’s website here. But, IHG’s website isn’t completely updated, so some parts of it still show that your double points are capped and that the promotion ends on Dec. 16. For example, TPG Points and Miles writer JT Genter has already reached the previous cap on double points — yet his dashboard for the promotion doesn’t show the “now unlimited” banner and recent stays don’t show that he’s earned double points.

Due to the conflicting information on IHG’s website regarding this promotion, TPG reached out to IHG regarding the promotion’s update. An IHG spokeswoman confirmed that the Double Points Plus More promotion is extended through Dec. 31, and that unlimited double points can be earned through Dec. 31. She said that promotion’s dashboard won’t be updated to reflect unlimited earning potential, but that double points will continue to deposit after stays during the promotion. She also clarified that IHG will be updating previous stays that didn’t initially earn double points due to the previous cap.

Now IHG members have more time to complete your Double Points Plus More promotion and the opportunity to earn unlimited double points. Be sure to book your stays using your IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card to earn 10 IHG points per dollar spent or your Chase Sapphire Reserve to earn 3 Chase Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent.
