New IHG Promotion: Earn up to 15,000 bonus points at InterContinental hotels

Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available.

For a limited time, you can earn up to 15,000 bonus IHG points when you book five nights at any InterContinental Hotels and Resorts property from Sept. 26 through Nov. 30, 2019.

When you break down the offer, IHG is offering 3,000 bonus points per stay on up to five stays. To qualify for this bonus, all you have to do is register with InterContinental before your stay(s) within the eligible dates.

The points don’t stop there; if you sign up for the Ambassador program — which costs $200 annually — you’ll receive an additional 10,000 bonus points after enrollment. From there, your 3,000 points per stay turn into 6,000, which brings your grand total from both promos up to 40,000 IHG points, which TPG values at $200. While it might sound like an even break, it’s actually much more valuable when you look at the perks you get as an Ambassador like the free weekend night, which could easily cost $200+. You’re also guaranteed room upgrades, late check-out, $20 credit towards restaurants and bars, and automatic IHG Platinum elite status. The status upgrade alone opens up a whole other world of perks.

On top of these deals, there are two others you could take advantage of if you really want to come out points rich. The IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card currently has an increased welcome bonus of 140,000 bonus points after spending $3,000 on purchases within the first three months of account opening.

Another offer to look into is IHG’s fall Accelerate promotion. Offers are targeted and vary from guest to guest, so be sure to check your account to see what you’ve been offered. This promo is running from now until Dec. 31, 2019, but you must register by Oct. 18, 2019.

IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card

With this card you'll get IHG Rewards Platinum Elite status which more than negates the value of the $89 annual fee.
