You can usually earn 10 points per USD spent at IHG hotel brands apart from Candlewood Suites and Staybridge Suites, which get you 5 points per USD Spent. With this promotion, you get double for your second stay and triple for your third stay onwards. Also, bonus points are earned in the following order: 10% for Gold Elites, 50% for Platinum Elites, 100% for Spire Elites and Kimpton Inner Circle members.

If I decided to head to an IHG hotel, that means, as a Platinum Elite, I will earn 350% points (35 points/1 USD) from my third stay onwards, which would be sweet.

You must also remember that this year is a very easy year to earn IHG Rewards elite status. Having said that, IHG Rewards’ status does not get you much, so don’t really go out of your way for it.


IHG’s new promotion offers you double points on your second stay and triple points on your third stay and onwards, which gets you an opportunity to earn 20 points more per USD spent at the minimum.
