IHG has announced the details of their first significant promotion for 2021, which has been designed to offer bonus points to their guests and help them earn status faster.

The new IHG Rewards Club global promotion is offering 2000 bonus points with every stay of two nights or more, for stays between January 20 and March 31, 2021. Registration is required before an eligible stay, so better sign up right away so that you don’t have to remember later. Members will be able to earn up to 70,000 bonus points during the promotion. Only paid nights to qualify, and your rate paid should be over USD 30 per night.

All IHG Rewards Club members’ elite status has been automatically extended through January 2022, allowing members to enjoy all the benefits of the status they earned during 2019. However, there is more to know about how IHG Rewards Club has made it easier in 2021 for members to earn or retain status.
For one, all qualifying nights earned from stays in 2020 will count towards 2021 status. Additionally, they earn 2000 elite points per stay as a bonus, as discussed above.

Not just that, IHG Rewards Club is also extending the minimum of 25% reduction in elite qualifying criteria for another year, through 2021 as well. This reduction is open, whether you are qualifying based on points or nights. The chart is enclosed below.


IHG has launched the first significant promotion for 2021, offering bonus elite points and reward points after each stay of two or more nights. IHG Rewards Club has reduced requirements for earning status in 2021 as well, and 2020’s stays also will count towards 2021 status earning.
