IHG Rewards Club shares news:
- I wanted to give you a head’s up that tomorrow, January 29, IHG will be sharing a Reward Night point requirement update with our members on our website.
Point redemptions will either increase or decrease by 5,000 or 10,000 IHG Rewards Club points at 400 of our more than 5,000 hotels worldwide. All Reward Night reservations made prior to February 17, 2016 will be honored at the current point requirement levels.
Please note that the web page will not be live until sometime tomorrow.
That’s about the same number of properties that changed categories last year, and by the same amounts.
A hotel going up from 10,000 to 15,000 points a night is seeing a 50% increase. Some hotels are going up as much as twice that or 10,000 points per night. So take this opportunity to look at hotels changing categories and see whether booking before February 17 will save you points.
We don’t yet know what proportion of hotels are increasing relative to those that are decreasing, though changes will occur for fewer than 10% of IHG Rewards Club properties.
