IHG Rewards Club has been running gamified promotions for awhile where they give you ‘tasks’ that earn points. The most recent one ended at July 31.
Now they’re out with their newest promotion. It’s not called ‘Accelerate’ and it doesn’t seem to offer as many tasks for points.
They call it Double Points plus more and offers double points starting with your second stay between September 16 and December 16. Those points are capped. But you may have offers to earn more additional bonus points. Registration is required.
Here are my offers:
One Mile at a Time reports being offered double points up to 30,000 points and 6400 points for booking two stays with the IHG app.
The most efficient way to earn IHG Rewards Club points right now of course is with the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card. Last month Chase launched a 100,000 point initial offer – the most points they’ve ever offered for an IHG card – after spending $3,000 on purchases within the first three months of account opening. (Offer expired)
Anecdotally my sense is that this is one of the easiest Chase rewards cards to be approved for. And reports are that it is not subject to Chase’s 5/24 rules where they only approve folks that have had fewer than 5 new cards in the last 24 months for many of their products.
The card comes with platinum status; a free night after each account anniversary year at eligible IHG hotels worldwide; a free reward night on points stays of 4 or more nights; Global Entry or TSA Precheck fee credit (up to $100 every 4 years).
What’s your ‘Double Points plus more’ offer?
