Do you have an IHG Business Rewards account? Maybe you should, because IHG has launched its newest promotion for members, allowing customers to earn double points on bookings through next year. Let’s take a look.
IHG Business Rewards is separate from IHG One Rewards, IHG’s consumer rewards program. It’s free to sign up for and membership allows you to earn points on events, meetings, and rooms for others.
To earn double points on stays, events, and meetings from September 1, 2022, to February 28, 2023, you must be an IHG Business Rewards member and register for the promotion. Stays or events should be booked from September 1, 2022, to December 31, 2022.
While there is no limit to the number of points you can earn during the promotion period, you can earn a maximum of 60,000 bonus points on each booking. This means if you were to max out the offer by spending $20,000 on one booking, you’d earn 6x IHG One Rewards points per $1 spent, totaling 120,000 points (60,000 base points + 60,000 bonus points).
Hot Tip: Earn even more points — up to 26x total points per $1 spent on IHG hotel stays — with an IHG® Rewards Premier Business Credit Card.
Is It Worth It?
If you’re not already an IHG Business Rewards member and you have spend that would qualify, you’ll definitely want to sign up for the program. As we mentioned above, it’s free and there’s no cap to the number of points you can earn. This promotion, while not as generous as the consumer offer going on right now (which is giving 4x points on stays), can be a great way to rack up those points. You’re also able to earn elite status with IHG One Rewards as an IHG Business Rewards member, meaning you can take advantage of IHG’s recently revamped rewards program to enjoy things like club access and suite upgrades.
IHG Business Rewards customers will generally earn 3x points per $1 spent on all qualifying spend. With this promotion, you’ll instead be earning 6x points per $1 spent. We value IHG points at 0.5 cents each, so you’ll be netting a 3% return on all your spend with this promotion. Obviously this isn’t amazing, but it beats the 1.5% return you’d otherwise be getting.
