IHG Rewards Club is one of the most popular hotel loyalty programs. And if you have not signed up for an IHG membership yet, you have an amazing opportunity to pretty easily get a valuable free night.
There is a new promotion that will give new members a free night after they complete only two stays by January 31, 2021.
After completing your stays, you will receive a reward night that can be used on properties worth up to 40,000 points per night. You will be required to use the free night by April 30, 2021.
There are actually a lot of great properties that you can stay at for 40,000 points per night.
If you would like to see some examples of hotels you can stay at, be sure to check out our article of IHG properties going for 40,000 per night.
In some cases, you might even be able to find a super cheap property to stay at in order to trigger your free night.
Just note: “A Qualifying Stay is defined as a minimum 1-night stay booked under a Qualifying Rate, with total spend exceeding US $30 per night.”
Of course, that could mean unnecessary travel during these times which is something to consider.
The deadline to enroll in this new promotion is September 30, so if you are new to IHG, I would recommend that you just sign up now.
If you are interested in IHG, you might also think about getting the IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card.
